PS3 Slim plays PS1 Discs? - Did I Miss A Memo?

[ Edited ]

Saw this:

 

http://community.us.playstation.com/t5/PlayStation-General/PS3-Usage/m-p/42467011#M630527

 

Then tried it... And it does work.

 

Did I miss a memo where Sony said we could play PS1 discs on our newer PS3s?

 

So stoked I can play my copy of intelligent Qube!

I skipped that chapter completely.

 

Mind blown and so stoked.

 

What a delightful surprise to discover on this wonderful Saturday.

Thanks Setz, I was starting to feel like I was the only person who missed this little tid-bit.
