I hope this is true!
Since I've got an 80gb PS3, hopefully I can finally play all those PS2 games that I've missed out on.
Considering that I didn't get to own a PS2 xD
Ditto here, I'm in the same boat. Never owned a PS2, but now that I have a PS3 there's some games I'd love to try, like Shadow of the Colossus and MGS 2 and 3. I truly hope this happens soon, and that it works well.
IMO all consoles should have full backwards compatibility, it just adds so much more. I mean who wants to have 5 consoles connected to their TV when they can have one that plays all generations. Some day we will have another non-optical media, though, and today's standard discs won't be able to load, so I'd imagine it will eventually go completely digital (download) only.
well i think its quite unbelieving to be that true, but yeah if that rumors is possible, then all of us would be that happy!, anyways ps2 slim right now is quite cheap so why try to emulate?, instead go and get a ps2 slim, in that way you would have lesser problem playing those ps2 games ...
Haha ive got a 40GB PAL PS3 without any PS2 B/C whatsoever and i cant wait till this is released, tho they're only having a problem with the GS ( graphics synthesiser) - what i dont get is, why cant the Nvidia RSX emulate the PS2s GS if the Cell can emulate the E.E chip ?
And im sure the PS2 backups would be loadable using the Disc swap trick, switch mods, or which ever other mods thts involve loading PS2 backups on PS3s.
