Re: All PS3s need full Backwards Compatibility

IMO, I don't think such a system would sell well anymore, mainly because people aren't buying PS2 games any more. Target has dropped it entirely and Best Buy and GameStop are phasing it out.

I could live without PS3 support, but I'd be annoyed as hell. As for blocking used games, I would not buy that at all. I don't think thats being unreasonable lol

A and B had full BC. The E and C had software BC. I have an E. That was the MSG4 bundled unit.
