Is it fixed now and work well?


I'm just curious because if the 60gb ps3 does get discontinued, i know that the "emotion engine" is going with it to make the new 80gb use 'software' based emulation.

I know they were having problems with backwards compatibilty, but is it all fixed?

I'm playing God of War II on my PS3 right now with no problems at all. I bought the machine a couple of months ago so I guess everything's been worked out. The PS3 basically just creates a PS2 "memory card" in its hard drive and you use that.

I've never had any issues at all. I think most of that talk was just rumors and bunk.

Well, as was said, the EE chip is built INTO the 60 GB PS3, at least for North America. I think Sony was claiming about 98% BC with PS2 games.

Compare that to Europe where they took out the EE chip and went with software emulation and had about 70% or so BC with PS2 games.

The new NA 80GB PS3 will use software emulation (to save about $30 per system cost to Sony) so expect to have to update and have some PS2 games that NEVER work on the PS3.

So, if BC is important to you, it might be good to grab a $499 60GB PS3 before they are all gone.
