PS3 Gets A PS2-ectomy In European Clinic; Condition Downgraded To Blu-Ray Player
Sony's taking a beating with their latest generation console, the PS3. In an effort to save money, the european version won't have a PS2 chip in it to make it backwards compatible for existing games and will rely on software to achieve the same result.
There are almost no titles for the new machine. It's expensive, but still not profitable for Sony. Its backwards compatibility was always iffy anyway. But at least it's a cheap blu-ray player.
