    [Answered] PS3 problem

    I heard on the news that the ps3 might have a compatibility problem with reading ps2 and ps1 games, hopefully it isn't as bad as it sounds.

    Yeah there seems to be rumors about backwards compatibility issues with several PS2/PS1 games. On the bright side, Sony aims to fix all these issues with a firmware upgrade before the launch on friday, so it shouldn't be too major a problem.

    As many as they can, the Guitar Hero bug wont be fixable... at least by firmware updates.

    In all honesty, I own like 2 PS1 games and as long as they both work (or more importantly just FF VII) then I could care less. There are no PS2 games I care enough about to be saddened if they wont run on the PS3. I did however want to get MK Armageddon as that looks sweet.

    PS3 Square Button

    I've checked out Tales of the Abyss (JAP), FF12 (JAP), KH2(USA). However, the US games don't play on the JAP ps3. The Japanese PS3 is still region locked for ps1 and ps2 games, and some of the odd japanese ps2 games play without sound. However some of these games are fixed by not using an hdmi cable... However, some of the games also don't work. Sony plans on fixing some of these problems in a later update. anyway, thats the situation.

    I read today that only 200 games run improperly or don't work at all. Which is something like 2% of all games. Could be worse.

    yes but some are large release titles such as Gran turismo 4 and Tekken 5 so the problem will widely affect PS3 consumers which will = a lot of ticked off gamers.
