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, the EE (CPU) is emulated (quite well actually) and the GS (Graphics chip) is there in the machine.
Anyway like Galahad I kept the one game I thought I would play, GT4, and I have played it once or twice in 2 years.
