Default Playstation 3 - 40 GB and Backwards Compatibility with PS2 games.

I do not know much about this other than the fact that the PS3 40 GB doesn't have it. I have heard that the 60 GB has it via a chip and the 80 GB has it via software emulation only. If it is truely software why cant we have it on the 40 GB? Is there a place where we can download that emulator? Is there someway we can hack the PS3 so we can play PS2 games? I dont want to hear just buy the 80 GB as I dont want to so if that is all you have to contribute then please spare us all and dont. Any help?
My setup:
Mitsubishi HD1000u
106" Screen
Sony Playstation 3 - 40GB
Onkyo HT-6100 7.1-Ch. A/V Home Theater System

Blu-ray's - 60 something

Me neither

THe basics are that the 60gig has the full hardware (emotion engine and graphics chip) required to play PS2 games , the 80 does not have the emotion engine chip but does have the graphics chip, and the 40 has neither.

SO YES, IF YOU WANT TO PLAY PS2 GAMES EITHER BUY A PS2 or buy a 60/80

60GB via hardware (2 chips)

80GB via hardware(1 chip)/software emulation for the other chip

40GB would only be possible if they were to also emulate the 1 chip left in the 80gb. So far they have said that is not in their plans since there are alternatives to play PS2 games (60, 80, PS2 itself) and if you would like that then to purchase the alternatives. The 40GB was at a lower price because they removed some of the hardware to reduce costs etc.

Well i suppose you could try installing linux on the PS3 and then installing a ps2 emulator and see if it works - i don't know if any one has tried that but you never know -

Anyone with a ps3 and linux installed on it want to try this and see what happens - i'd love to know if it does work - and i'm sure a lot of other people would like to know too

If that were true they would have stopped selling PS2's and not offer 80GB. Now Microsoft fits what your saying since they removed the Xbox to force people to the 360. But not Sony.

Simply retarded logic. They should not have left it off regardless of what other systems I can buy to play it.

I play my ps2 games on my ps2. I got a day one ps2 and it is still working, btw. I would rather not waste my ps3 time on those old ones. Backwards compatibility has always been overrated. I played a ps1 game on my ps2 once, maybe twice. Just my two cents.

What do you want us to tell you apart from buy a PS2 or buy a 20/60/80GB PS3? Those are the options.

You're the one that didnt do your homework you crybaby.

They took out hardware to save on costs. They also are not going to emulate every single PS2 game entirely because there are thousands. Therefore its not worth their time to even bother at all.

IF you wanted the extra feature, you need to pay for it. I dont feel the slightest bit of sympathy for you and you're "i want everything my way!" type attitude.
