After the Metal Gear Solid 4 Bundle Pack for the PS3, everyone was upset when they found out that the system was no longer PS2 backwards compatible; SONY took away one of the most important features to the system. To me, I have over 100 games and I can not do anything with them unless I buy another PS2, which I’m still debating on.

Recently there was a meeting between SONY Computer Entertainment America and SEGA, and what was discussed was that SCEA wants to sell all PS2 games on the PSN. When I heard this I cried for a little, in more places on my body than needed. I thought SONY was going to abandon the system forever, like a mother bird abandoning her youngling if they made contact with the human species; I watch too much Discovery Channel. But no, they are bringing PS2 back in our lives and theirs, and once again, SONY has made me extremely proud to be a gamer. I wonder if they will put the game Wizardry on the PSN; it was a very hard game to find.Also at the meeting there were talks to bring Dreamcast games and Japanese imports to the realm of PSN. The prices for the Japnese games will range between $9.99 to $39.99 . It will be nice if the Japanese games have subtitles, so I can finally know what they are saying. Some of the Dreamcast games that are coming to the PSN will have some “exclusivity”, meaning that many games could also be available on XBOX Live. I cannot wait until I can start playing my PS2 games once again. Go SONY!

I don't know how official the source is, but this is pretty good news. Many people were pissed about the lack of backwards compatibility in their new PS3 systems. While it still stinks that they can't play their discs (cept me biggrin.gif OG PS3 ftw smile.gif,) this should put a lot of minds at ease. At least they can re-buy them and have digital copies.

This affects me in no way, however, because not only does my PS3 have backwards compatibility, but I still have a PS2 slim and a million games smile.gif

Except all my GTA's.. I sold those a while back when IV came out. sad.gif

Blasphemy. That's the reason I still have my PS2, besides Okami, RE4, Onimusha Dawn of Dreams and Time Splitters 2.

On topic, this seems more like a Microsoft move than a Sony one: "Thanks for years of loyalty and all of the money you have spent supporting our company. In our show of appreciation, you can now pay for the games you've already paid for but our new system doesn't support."

The lack of backward compatibility was the reason I went with a 360 over a PS3 when I upgraded to next-gen. If the new (thin) PS3 supported backward compatibility, it would be on my Christmas list. Otherwise, I see no point.

yea, i saw that story earlier today... i am pissed too that they might be making you re-purchase some of your favorite games again just to play them on the PS3... but, i am not doing it... i'll just hook my PS2 up in the computer room to my SDTV because, the PS2 looks blurry on an HDTV... now, if they re-polish the graphics like they will with the GOWI & II pack then, i might re-purchase some of them but, if they are just straight ports then, fuck 'em...

Oh, good one. The "you're on the internet so you must have no life" insult isn't moronic or unoriginal at all. You must, without a doubt, be a very important member of society, not at all a waste of the already barely valuable gift of life.

As is the case for everyone who takes issue with people who make them sad on the internet, you are one of two kinds of people:

You are exactly what you claim I am, and that is a lonely, pathetic basement dweller. You life is spent eating eight pounds of junk food per day, masturbating to anything you find online that's even remotely feminine, and wishing you had good looks and social skills. You continue to live with your mother until she dies of a combination of lung cancer and liver failure brought on by the chain-smoking and heavy drinking she used to cope with what a failure you are. Your mother mercifully dead and free of the living embodiment of failure she regretfully thrust from her loins, the bills start to pile up and you, unemployed and unable to pay these bills (of course), lose the house and everything in it. Somehow even more of a failure than you already were, you wander from place to place eating out of dumpsters and sleeping in your own filth until you finally die of AIDS, which you contracted from a diseased whore you scrounged up enough money to pay for, so you could finally lose your virginity while at the same time pretending that your mother was back in your life.

Or:

You are the type who was an athlete in high school, who was genetically doomed to be an idiot but managed to finish school and even get a college scholarship because you were so good at a worthless children's game. You went off to college with a suitcase full of polo shirts and condoms, the polo shirts, because you're a douche, and the condoms to prevent you from impregnating the dim-witted young college girls whom you could never touch without the aid of Rohypnol, a drug you refer to as "roofies" because you can neither spell or pronounce Rohypnol. You scrape by with borderline D's for the next four years, and leave the campus to go out into the real world where your realize you're not intelligent or talented enough to do anything of value with your life. Misery and minimum wage ensues for thirty years, then you blow your brains out, and your corpse, alone and forgotten, is not discovered until the smell of rotting flesh seeps under your door and your bodily fluids finally soak through the floor of your studio apartment and into the room below you. Your body is cremated, the ashes scraped into a garbage bin because there was no one in your life who valued you enough to pay for a casket, funeral, or burial plot.

You're undoubtedly one of the two, otherwise you would have better things to do than complain about the theme of a forum that doesn't care about anything you have to say.

Well, if my PS2 ever breaks I know not to bother spending money for another since I don't have many games for it anyway.

Hmmm, I hope after the ps2 has ran its course they will put software emulation back in the ps3. It would make sense.

Somehow I don't think it'll also mean backwards compatibility for disc based PS2 games. Probably only for games downloaded on the PSN store.

It'd be cool if they do retroactively put it in though! My PS2 broke a long time ago and my 40GB can't do shit

Talking of ps games. I read an article which complains about DL games being priced higher then physical disc's of these old games. Which doesn't seem very fair for the consumer. As far as i know it is only happening with psp games atm.
