    Ps3 folks....

    Sony buggin' out!

    Red-faced Sony bosses announced yesterday that their prized PlayStation 3 is a plagued-station.
    Just days from the U.S. debut of its mega-hyped video game, legions of fans were peeved that the updated console won't play some old games.

    PS3 was released in Japan on Saturday and complaints soon followed.

    The popular war game "Final Fantasy XI" is among those that don't work on the new 60gigabyte machine. The glitches are also muffling the background music to the "Tekken 5" combat game. And the virtual gun on "Biohazard" won't fire.

    "The big deal is they [Sony] claimed it would be fully backwards compatible and now they're running into problems," said Tim Surette, news editor of the San Francisco-based gaming magazine Gamespot. "I'm sure Microsoft is smiling."

    "About 200 of the 8,000 old games are affected by the glitches in the new $600 system."

    It's a big deal since most people will sell or trade their ps2 instead of keeping it but still. You can't advertise that ALL games will work and criticize your biggest competitor for not being backwards compatible. Sony has made two big mistakes so far with PS3. Blu-Ray is killing them because of lack of parts (which is why the release amount is so low) and this 20GB versus 60GB edition (which is the mistake Microsoft made because the "Core" system is just sitting on the shelf while the "Pro" version is the only one that is selling). Falling short on emulation may not hurt as much depending on what 200 games are affected.

    Anyone who knows anything about emulation knew they were lying.
    The only way they previously achieved %100 backwards compatibility before was by including a complete Ps1 embedded in the PS2 hardware.
