232w ago - Recently it was reported that Sony patented software-based PS2 emulation technology. This got users excited who own 80GB, 40GB and 160GB PS3 consoles without backwards compatability.
Although the article speculated that the upcoming PS3 slim may utilize this technology, today a German Web site has supposedly gained comment from a Sony employee, to quote:
This brings us to the German Web site Demo News, which claims to have gained comment from a Sony employee stating that full backwards compatibility is coming to US PS3's as a firmware update in the "next few weeks."
If this rumor is true, it will make many newer PS3 console owners very happy indeed!

I really hope this is a possibility. i mean, my ps3 can already play a lot of ps1 games, but i hope that they include ps2 games in the update. i really wouldn't mind playing them on my regular ps2, but it broke down not too long ago and i thought about selling my ps2 games, i had over 30 of them. hopefully this rumor becomes a fact.
