Backwards Compatibility

[ Edited ]
4 replies 281 views Edited Feb 24, 2014

I was just wondering if there's any legitimate reason for making the newer PS3s incompatible with PS2 games.  It would be understandable if there were more games on PS3 that don't suck, but most of the good games are on PS1 and PS2.  I guess it beats X-Box at least.  I guess that's what I get for buying my PS3 new instead of getting an older version second-hand off EBay or something.  I probably won't make that mistake again.

Then buy a PS2 / PS1 if you think those games are better. One good reason why it is not BC is b/c they want consumers to buy the newer product.

Basically it was to cut costs. Make it cheaper. If you cant find any good games then your just not trying.

Playstation did not want to innovate so they stuck us with something with a little bit of nothing.

to make them cheaper. but when it reached the point to not even put a software emulator. that was **bleep**. my PS3 is incompatible with older games. tho i was able to play a PS1 game when i downloaded it. tho i dont think it supports PS2 games.
