It's my main reason for not buying the Ps3, no backward compatibility whereas the ps2 was excellent in playing Ps1 games.
That's my reason for not being interested in PS3.
Didn't they promise this would be fixed after the initial launch with a firmware update?
If they did, it has never appeared.
Sega promised eventual backward compatibility with the Saturn when the Dreamcast was launched, IIRC. That never appeared either.
