    But it's okay, because Dora the Explorer is fine!

    Well, to be fair, the PS3 is a next gen system. It wasn't really made for the older games. It was made for new mor hi-tech games to be played in High Definition. Yes, I do agree with you on the fact that some games are buggy, but if you have those old games, then surely you have a PS2? Btw I didn't own any of those games, so it doesn't matter to me much. Socom 2 runs perfect if not a bit better than what it did on PS2 so I'm straight.

    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.

    Expect the PS3 to also be combatible with older nintendo games as well.. the mod community wont let that opportunity slip by.

    That'll make my day when Ps3 owners have Nintendo games on their system.

    I've always wondered about the legalities of Nintendo games on Live and the like...


    Mail me if you want to add me on either the Wii or the 360.

    Nintendo could do some things to combat this, but it be hard to monitor people with their dum mods. (Anti-Moder ftw)

    they already have the NES working on the PS3. In fact, all they need to do is optimize the PSP's mod/emus to work for the PS3. With the PS3s capabilities, it can handle systems beyond the PSP's N64/PS1 limit.

    The mod community has surpassed all expectations for me with the PSP. Thankfully the PS3 is just as open to modders. =)

    You have a thing against modders eh? They keep systems alive and you might not know this but a lot of the ideas you see implimented in current gen consoles were thought up by modders and used by companies like nintendo, sony, and microsoft. Not only do games evolve, the but the systems do as well.

    technologically the ps3 is better than the wii and 360

    overall the product is not in anyway inferior compared to the wii or 360, its just that the majority of the general public are poor so a small portion of those people start saying its crap to make themselves feel better about not having one, cause they cant afford one ie people like u. either that or your 12. cause the wii would be pretty sick if i were still really young, but motion sensing gets boring and as u can see majority of the games are made for younger aged gamers or just a family/friends thing, only a few titles are made for more mature gamers.
    Dont get me wrong i love playing my wii when friends or family are over but its not something u can just sit there and play for hours. just my own opinion

    ur either stubborn or stupid.

    I don´t thing it is getting bored. There aren´t just enough games to prove it is great the motion sensor. It will be a question of short time to see the real power of the motion sensor of the Wii. And it is just a change in the use of a Joypad.
    Just like with the mouse, why do you think MS invented the game MINESWEEPER? For fun? No, so that you would get used using the second Mousebutton, nothing else.

    I can do that playing kororinpa, COD3, NFS,.... for hours and hours.... Not telling you making Mii and surfing the net.

    I think that althought they call themself VIDEO CONSOLES, there are just too different to compare. Each one is poiting a different public. Like appels and bananas. Both are fruits, just for different public.

    And we will continue with this hate/love affair for decades....

    Here in Spain most magazines tel that the PS3 is the best off them. But what they never calculate in ther overall view is the price. It isn´t the same comparing a 250€ machine with a 735€ one (yes 735€, as you need to add agames, extra cables,etc to enjoy it the full).....Everybody assumes we can pay the machine, and if we have the money that it is normal to buy that one. Well they are wrong. I can easily buy a couple of those a month with my salary, but I won´´t, because I don´t feel the need having it.

    I also believe the PS3 is far better in GFX, sound,..... But I rather spend 250€ every 5 years in a machine that can give me fun, EDUCATION,.... every now and then.... and not 700€ .....

    i do consider myself a anti-modder at times yes, but i do know how it can help a system. The Ps3 does have a good and easy way to be modded, the Xbox360/Wii are also getting mods but more work has to go into it to work as well.
