The recent announcement of the CECH-3000B 320GB model which will consume less power and weight less, appears to include an additional feature that will make the PS3 much more valuable and make many PS3 gamers happy!
After reading the specs on the Japanese Sony website, it’s clear that the new PS3 model will have PS2 compatibility with proprietary software. (If the translation is correct) This is what the translation reads:
“This product, “PlayStation 2″ are having a compatibility with proprietary software” ***Update*** Our Japan based friend has confirmed that the translation was a bit off. It should read; “This product is not compatible with PlayStation 2 Proprietary software”. We apologize for any inconvenience.
