Re: CAN MY PS3 320gb PLAY PS2 AND PS1 GAMES

I don't get why Sony don't allow us to play PS2 games on the PS3 though..? If it's because the PS2 sales would go down, they would yes but the PS3 sales would go up! The PS2 game sales wouldn't go down as some people would buy PS2 games for their PS3.

Feel that's just an excuse they could of easily kept the chip and reduced the price. It's nice you can play old ps1 games, but it more of made more sense if you cold of played ps2 for the slim model.

Re: CAN MY PS3 320gb PLAY PS2 AND PS1 GAMES

backwards compatibility is good and all but its really just for the launch of the console to pad the game library a bit, a year after launch the ammount of use it will receive diminishes so much its just not worth it for console maufacturers, the only reason ps1 emulation stayed is because it was software emulation from bleem, sony paid for it they might as well use it

 

short version old game is old
