Wish someone told me Slim PS3 wont play PS2 games

I feel like such an idiot for buying new. I don't get it though, it plays PSone games fine, why the **** did they leave the PS2 emulator out? I was so looking forward to putting my PS2 away for good.

I feel trolled by Sony right now.

Pretty sure it says it on the box. You feel like an idiot because you are one.

They left out emulation so they could resell the ps2 games on psn with emulation code for just that game and the ps2 game itself

No, they left out emulation because it costed them too much.

$27 is not "too much" according to SCEA CEO Jack Tretton

Basically it was left out because people were using their PS3s as expensive PS2s and they wanted to encourage people to buy PS3 software. Stupid reason, I know.

Personally I never found BC any good anyway. The games I did play played way different on PS3 then they did on PS2 especially shooters. The Dualshock 3 has a different control feel than the old PS2 controllers. I have a PS2 still which I can easily hookup to play my old games.

Interesting, given how many vita owners who use that device as an expensive PSP...
