PS3 Backwards Compatibility Download??

67 replies 1934 views Edited Dec 31, 2009
I currently have a 40G PS3 but it does not have backwards compability. I was told there may be a patch/download for backwards compability soon. Is this true?

No one outside Sony knows for sure. But I wouldn't count on it happening any time soon, or at all.

Umm..yeah!  There is more to a game than graphics.  Case in point.....PS1 "Classics" that are being bought up on PSN.   Are you saying that for the decade that PS2 reigned supreme, there isn't a single good game that you enjoy playing again?

 

Sorry but BC is important for many of us because it shows that a company supports their loyal brand costumer base.   I can excuse the cost cutting factor in the PS3 decession but to simply ignore those of use that have been huge PS2 fans for close to ten years, is really an insult.

uuuhhhh  YEAH!!!   I have about 15 times the amount of PS2 games to PS3 games. Im not going to just throw them away, that is just plan stupid, IMO. And that is why I bought a PS3 in the begining and paid $650 for it, so I can play ALL of my Playstation games on 1 unit.

I agree.  I have an original PS3 with B/C and I do feel for non B/C owners Ps3 owners I really do, and I hope Sony offers a solution, but if people would have pony'ed up for a PS3 when they still had BC, Sony wouldnt have needed to start stripping features. Cant have it both ways.

PS3 BC is gone and wont be back . SONY wont do it because PS2 is still there top selling console and they don't plain on stopping selling it anytime soon . Its all about the money with SONY.Thats why we can't watch HULU in our browser anymore because they sell the shows in the PLAYSTATION store . So don't hold your breath waiting for something that will never come back . Before someone post they took it out when they made the PS3 $299 and they did it for cost that is not true they removed BC way before the price drop and it has nothing to do with it .
