If i can't use my Socom games on here and download map packs I'd rather just get the Xbox 360 since they have the better next gen online games.I was willing to sacrafice and use it for PS 2 online games till better PS 3 online titles come out but since compatibility is limited to Combined Assault online thats not enough to keep me entertained till the better PS 3 onlines start coming.I'd rather go play some gears of war online or Halo online when that comes out if this issue can't be fixed.
