Okay. So why are we not collectively mad about this? (PS3 Bckwrd comp.)

Seems like this is the generation with the most new gamers, who only want Call of Duty. I doubt they would care for older games, sadly.

Okay, first gen PS3s come out, have hardware BC and are awesome.

Second Gen Ps3s come out, have software BC, and are slightly less awesome.

Third+ Gen PS3s come out and do NOT have any BC.

So the second generations have SOFTWARE BC, I.E. no other parts than what was produced later... and yet they take it away. But this isn't the part I'm mad about.

A few years later they begin re-selling PS2 games back to us! And the internet collectively doesn't care. This kinda boggles my mind. It's one thing to take it out (which I still don't see why) but it's an entirely different thing to then start selling the games that you don't really have any other option for playing on that system anymore. It's clear the system CAN play it...so why can't I put my disc in and play it?

ANY WHY AREN'T PEOPLE MAD ABOUT THIS!?




1) Third+ Gen PS3s do have BC. PS1 BC. So no, they do not have "no" BC.
2) I can play my PS2 games fine on my PS2. When you bought a Third+ Gen PS3 you didn't pay for PS2 BC.
3) I wish they made PS2 BC though.

Sony takes away other OS option, BC and people here only get mad when a cosmetic change occurs to PSN. subseguently when PSN goes down(being Sony's fault) people say Sony is the victim.

People couldn't bah any louder around here.

Yes, do that.

That'll learn $ony.


Dear congressman, some people don't get sarcasm.

There are actually a lot of people disappointed with the removal of PS2 backwards-compatibility. But this has been a reality for a few years now, and we've come to terms with it.

I am kinda POed about it, but it doesn't really bother me since I still have a working launch PS3 and I do play through my PS2 games on it, except for certain games. When I was playing Persona 4 on my PS3 sometimes after saving it would randomly delete the data. I had multiple saves so I only lost 3 hours, but I made sure to play Persona 3 on my PS2.
