Thumbs down Sony Discontinues Backwards Compatible PS3 in Japan

http://www.gameshout.com/news/sony_d...rticle9941.htm

Quote:
Sony will no longer sell the PlayStation 3 with the capability to play PlayStation 2 games in Japan.

Sony PlayStation 3 backwards compatibility is going away in Japan. Is the U.S. market next for this same marketing plan? So far this is not known but we do know that the 20GB and 60GB PS3 models have been discontinued in Japan. The final shipment of the 20GB and 60GB models will hit retailers shelves throughout January but that is the end of it according to a statement by Sony.
Duh, i really hope that it's just "japan thing" and Sony does not do same in US, that would suck. I just dont understand that anyway, just keep that backwards compatibility god damit

Why dont you just play your PS2 games on your PS2?

Most people who would pay the 500$ for a ps3 would have had a ps2.

ps2 games have genraly been proven to be better on a ps2 then ps3, though all my (3) ps2 games work really well imo ;x personally i don't know why their taking the emotion engine out and the software emulation i doubt even costs them anything extra in production... the emotion engine cost something like $13? seriously I'd be willing to pay that for near 98% compatibility >.<

too bad for you.
since December PS3 is kicking the 360's ass in sales, and HD-DVD is dead with 90% of studios going Blu-ray exclusive.
enjoy your betamax while you still can.

That's hard***, I suppose they will reintroduce backwards compatibility as an expansion pack later on
