    This is probably old news, but anyways....Sony's scrapping the B/C chips in Europe. And to think of all those little statements they made about backwards compatability and hardware capability.....just wow.

    LoL, what newbs, the whole software emulation through update thing really sucks, I hate it on the XBOX (even though I probably wouldn't play to many XBOX games anyways) That is not the right route to go down...

    OMG! If that's not a nail in the PS3 coffin, you tell me what is? Sony has totally lost it.

    WWWTTFFFF. Nah man i aint even playing now im never buying that piece of ****.
    First they give us only a premium pack for a higher price and now dey scrap this.
    Crazy assholes

    EDIT: I read up that Sony is making a different ''design'' for the Ps3 in Europe and that it does not feature the backward compability.
    But they also say there is something to look forward to in this new design and it will be EU (PAL) exclusive.


    I hope it means that the Multi-region element will still be there.

    Yet another example of Sony's unbelievable greed in the last few months. Rather than letting people enjoy all their old favourites for PS1/PS2, instead they now can't play them on PS3 until the system is updated. And if it's anything like the 360's backward compatibility updates, they'll be waiting a very long time to play many even slightly esoteric titles.

    LOL...now THATS funny! I mean seriously what did you guys expect from a loser like Sony. When have they ever cared about customers in general. Their main concern right now is pushing BluRay into the industry as well their entertainment center machine. Its not a gaming console. Its a cluster f*ck of appliances that most people ALREADY own. Its nice to know that Sony keeps digging their own grave however.

    Yeah Sony has made a seriously bad move with this.
    If they do it in America they might lose the entire market.

    what the HELL???
    the price itself put off a LOT of people. now they are going to lose a whole bunch more if they are saying that you can't pay your PS2 collection.

    I feel sorry for the gamers in the PAL territories. First, Sony delays the PS3and says the Europeans won't mind. Then it shuts down Lik-Sang so you can't import one. And now, the PS3 cannot play almost all of the PS2 games. Sucks to be an European!

    Sorry for my ignorance but what does PAL stand for? And yeah I feel bad for the gamers in Europe but hopefully they'll realize that Nintendo is more customer oriented and concered about their needs than Sony is.

    You are aware that Nintendo is making money from you right out of the box, right? Sony and Microsoft are actually losing money on their consoles. In other words, Nintendo CAN sell the Wii for much cheaper than they are selling it now. Or even in simpler terms, you are getting less, way less than what you are paying for.

    But back on topic, Sony is not very wise for taking out the hardware emulation chip. Hopefully they will hear the complaints and add it back on like what they did with the HDMI for the 20 GB PS3.
