Yeah, on the UK PS3's they took a certainchip out, which is found in PS2's, so we now have to rely on software emulation insted of hardware emulation for the PS2 games on it.
All that just to cut costs!, meh! I hate playstation anyways

Tough ---- Sony. We've moved on. We're dating your younger, hotter sister, Wii. Even your fuglier step-sister, Xbox 360, looks hotter than you do.

haha that maed me crack up llol

I wont buy one till the games on it improve or the console improves - Most likely in 2007 maybe 2008

I love my PS2 and will stay with me and will last for another year or so - Theres tons still to do on it gaming wise hehe No point spending 400 on something theres no games for

72% games work on European PS3's.

Sony reveals that 1,782 titles are compatible at launch after firmware update.
by Rob Burman, IGN UK

UK, March 20, 2007 - Sony has confirmed that 72% of all PAL PS2 titles will run on PlayStation 3 from day one, despite changes to the hardware that made many think the number of backwards compatible titles would be much less.

A new firmware update - v1.6 - enables new owners of the console to play 1,782 of the 2,451 titles available for EU PlayStation 2s. The download will be available via the PlayStation Network from 12am on Friday or, if you don't have an internet connection (how are you reading this then?), on a disc available from Sony customer services.

Ahead of the European release Sony has launched a new website that highlights exactly which PS2 and PSone titles are compatible. Of the top 25 PS2 games of all time recently compiled by IGN, 17 are currently playable on Euro PS3s.

Even then, some of the games that are compatible may not run 100% properly. For example, according to Sony, games such as Kingdom Hearts and Twisted Metal Black run with "noticeable issues", although it's not currently known what the problems might be. However, Sony does offer advice to reduce the potential problems, by disconnecting non-essential USB peripherals, avoiding the use of 60Hz mode, skipping optional FMV sequences and limiting the number of non-network players to seven.

David Reeves, president of Sony Computer Entertainment Europe, said that engineers had been working overtime to ensure PS3 delivered a "significant number of playable PS2 titles for the European launch".

However, while Sony is continually working to improve backwards compatibility, Reeves also added: "We will be adding additional titles to this list in future firmware upgrades, but as we have made clear before, in the future our resources will be increasingly focused on developing new services and entertainment features exclusively for PS3, rather than on delivering PS2 backwards compatibility."

I don't know how 72% of available titles suddenly became bad.

which 72% though?

typicaly the more demanding and unique games are more demanding and unique and are less likely to work.

until sony gets any games for their system though, it really doesn't matter though.

Sony have had their heads stuck in the sand for so long... and even on the release of the PS3 they're STILL sorting bugs out.

As Darkstar said:

The PS3 has just been left way behind, and it looks like the console catastrophe of the year to date. Poor show, Sony.

*gives Sony the finger and points sharply to the exit door* -_- :lol:
