    Actually, those "200 games" are 200 SKU's, which include both original and Greatest Hits/Best/Platinum versions. Still, given the fact that upscaling isn't possible on the console, playing those old games on the PS3 is pointless unless you want to save space.

    from what i've read the ps3 upscaled all ps2 games to 480p thats still upgrading isnt it heh, and besides its a good way to keep playing your ps2 games and sell the actual ps2 console to make some extra cash. Plus the ps3 allows you to make virtual memory cards on the HDD etc

    yes, but there is no backwards compatability with regular Dual Shock 2s. That sucks considering unlike Sony, I like Rumble. They need to make a usb adapter me thinks

    Yeah, just like there is a HDMI and Component cables are sold seperatly too.

    How compatible is that adapter with recognition of third party and optional controllers though ?
    I heard the guitar hero controller has issues getting recognized.

    Also, how are the USB devices handled in PS2 games?
    (USB microphones/Headsets, USB ethernet adapters and such)

    With the more and more common stuff with online play, has the PSX LINK been resurrected through emulation? (I think they should, even though not many games after 1999/2000, if any at all, supports it)


    The PS3 has potential, I give it that, but it seriously feels half-assed, rushed and at the moment it's just not very attractive, even though it's been delayed several times.
    It pretty much fails at living up to the "piece of perfection" Sony tries to make it sound like it is.

    I don't think those are official adaptors, but since you're running Linux on the thing, you can use any USB adaptor.

    The analog out (AV out) is the same as the PS and PS2 so you can use your old cables. HDMI cables are pretty common and cheap, and frankly, I'm not sure why people were expecting Sony to bundle one with the console. Component is another matter though.

    There certainly are issues, but it seems that much of their intial efforts went into the engineering of the console to ensure that the whole PS2 launch defect problems are repeated. It was delayed once btw :p It's been out for a short while anyway. I'm actually glad I didn't get one, because I seriously cannot find one compelling title until March.

    Right now, my beef is with the issue of upscaling... a key issue given the fact that it's an HD console. Btw AJ, I don't think PS/PS2 titles are upscaled to 480p.. you'll have to turn it on if a game supports it.

    Actually, I haven't been able to find a decent priced retail HDMI cable. Most places seem to only stock the expensive monster ones, with a mark up of like 50 bucks for what they actually pay for those things. They practically taking your money if you buy one. But fortunately, HDMI is digital, so buying a cheaper cable off eBay really isn't a problem. BTW, does the PS3 have gold connectors?

    The most funny part of all this is the fact that people is buying ps3 for re-sell it in eBay with ridiculously expensive prices.

    Well, I plan on getting a PS3 eventually. Right now there is no title I want for it and none coming out for it for a long time that I'm gonna want to desperately have right at release, so I'm not worried about it. Hopefully by then it will have gone down in price some and all that good stuff. Gonna be getting me a 360 for X-mas, since there's really nothing for the Wii I want really, and quite a few 360 games out and coming out that I'm quite interested in.

    Kinda wish I had bought one just to sell on E-bay though. Hypocritical yeah, cause I think it's ridiculous people are doing it, but on the other hand it's a dandy profit. . . meh, too late now to worry about, cause I'm broke after spending all my money on x-mas. XD

    And I didn't think any details were finalized/confirmed for BH5 at this point? Chris Redfield being the guy in the teaser was just a common speculation. Kinda behind on confirmed news these days in the BH scene, so I dunno. Though I am pretty positive March 2007 is definately not gonna happen for BH5, haha. Last I heard, from a recent post on this very forum even, was that last heard about it was that they were still in the very early stages. Oh well.

    The source is from Hongkong Game Magazine, the Game Next, last edition.

    The issue is in March of 2007. Not I fake things.

    check it w/ HK friends if u really have any. they will be able to show u this.

    On Playstation 3. and X-Box is later than this period.

    Exactly yeah, i'd be using the backwards compatability just to save space. Don't have any room for anymore consoles, and i still have hundreds of PSone and PS2 games to play through. And i think the official line on incompatable games was about 2.7% to be exact(when you take Greatest Hits, Platinum etc versions into consideration).

    The only worries about the backwards compatability on PS3 that i have is that there are reports that it actually makes some games look noticeably worse. Hopefully a Firmware update will fix this issue though.

    And yeah, no Dual Shock support on PS3 is very disappointing for me. I like my rumble One of the reasons why i've never bothered picking up a Wavebird Controller for my Gamecube.

    And i doubt Resident Evil 5 will be out on PS3 in 3 months either, the magazine has obviously got their facts wrong. March 2008 maybe? I think whats more likely is that we'll actually see some new news on it in 3 months.

    Same with me. Some people don't enjoy rumble, but I love it. I'm actually kindof sad that the wiimote has such limited rumble functionality...

    What he's trying to say is don't believe everything you read just because it is in a magazine. I can't believe RE5 would be coming out in March 2007 since we don't even have a confirmed idea of where it might take place exactly. Some speculate that RE5 will take place in Africa or the middle east. It doesn't necessarily mean it is true.

    I don't think it will come out in March. Many games are given un-realistic dates, i think a closer mark woud be next Christmas.
