Sony's PS3 backwards compatibility is a bit different this time around as its relying purely on emulation software, much like the emulators used by PCs to run and emulate game systems. Like most of the software based emulation, its requires a lot of fine tuning for it to work with a lot of games. It will be perfected with firmware updates and/or the mod community. Who ever does it first.Originally Posted by Skeet Rag
Expect the PS3 to also be combatible with older nintendo games as well.. the mod community wont let that opportunity slip by.
