PS2 hardware chips have been removed completely
I'm from Europe and I was planning on getting a PS3 at launch.. reading this makes me wanna bomb $ony European HQ's.. :banghead:
Does this mean that the PS2 hardware chips have been removed completely and replaced with software-only emulation?
The original PS3 used the Emotion Engine/Graphics Synthesiser to emulate PS2 titles. With the latest European specification we have removed the Emotion Engine, retaining the graphics chip. This has an impact on the number of PS2 titles that will be backwards compatible.
Wadda you think? Is this as bad as it looks?
