I myself think it is a shity way to do that to you guys over in Europe. I can't believe sony has the balls to even do this as much as they bashed xbox 360 for useing emulation and saying it wasent true backwards compatible. Sony corp is shocking me more and more ever day as if they enjoy giving it's fans more and more bad news. i have owned a ps3 since launch and i my self keep checking the news on the internet every day i wake up to hear the worst news a ps3 fan could hear and that is........We have stopped production of the playstation 3 console and cancelled all current in game projects. Think about it they said they stopped useing the ps2 and ps1 chips in ps3 cause of the cost $30 a chipset that does not sound like a company who can take to many blows if they got to cut back even if it's only $30.Sounds to me like a company who's wallet is getting thin. This maybe the Sega saturn all over again.
