I think it is only the early NTSC PS3 models that had hardware PS2 BC.... NOT the PAL version unfortunately
and that is what completely put me off getting a PS3 amongst other things....
No, early PS3 80Gig had PS2 compatibility, they've abandoned it now.
I'll be brutally honest, I love my PS2, but I haven't touched it once in nearly a year of PS3 ownership.
