Below is a Signature



Sony are stabbing their loyal family customers in the back - We have 3 PS3s and 3 PSPs all on the same IP address and all registered with Sony. Why can't we use them at the same time anymore?

I think it's pretty bad that you can't play PS2 games. But I do like playing FFVII from the PS1.

yeah annoyed me too at the time i bought it assuming you could.

On the plus side they use the same power lead so its quite easy to have both set up, i want one of those small ps2s.

I don't get why Sony don't allow us to play PS2 games on the PS3 though..? If it's because the PS2 sales would go down, they would yes but the PS3 sales would go up! The PS2 game sales wouldn't go down as some people would buy PS2 games for their PS3.

Feel that's just an excuse they could of easily kept the chip and reduced the price. It's nice you can play old ps1 games, but it more of made more sense if you cold of played ps2 for the slim model.
