    True, but the 360 never marketed itself as having absolute backwards-compatibility. They're basically uploading emulation software with every update for a certain list of games. The PS3 basically says that every game will work like it always has without exceptions.

    Shouldn't do. The Wii has a Gamecube graphics chip set (or something) that will help it emulate the Gamecube. The download titles should be fine too.

    not to mention:
    How are you supposed to play Guitar Hero? It was about the only good PS2 game. I know an employee at FYE, said he played it, but there were no controller ports, so no guitar hero.

    I think you need a PS2 controller port to USB adapter thingy to play guitar hero. Another one up the wii has on the ps3....it offers ports for GC controllers. hehe

    As noted above, games using a microphone peripheral seem to have problems.


    Bwaaa, the only reason for me turning on my PS2 is to play some Singstar. Those guys at Sony are really doing a super job.

    hahaha....i just saw a PS3 at Wal mart. it looks all pretty and shiny. the system also locked up and it was stuck on one frame, workers were trying to get the video playing again but the ps3 was just well, stuck!!! i know its just an isolated event but i found it ironic and amusing. I'd get one if i wanted to buy a pretty shiny box for $600 but im a simple folk who just likes to play games.
