Is PLAYSTATION Backwards Compatibility Dead? Possibly Not

Well, the 80GB PLAYSTATION 3 Sku is on it's way out of stores. My friend who is the assistant manager at a GameStop confirmed this with me as well.

Backwards Compatibility may not be completely dead though. PlayStation Network Director, Eric Lempel, spoke about the possibilities of downloading PS2 games as well as PSone games in the latest issue of EGM.

When asked if the PLAYSTATION Network would start allowing downloads for PS2 games via the PLAYSTATION Store, Lempel said "We haven't talked about that yet, but there are possibilities through technology and software emulation to make that possibles."

Lets hope, and if not, lets make petitions.

I'd always hoped that the reason Sony took out the backwards compatibility was because they've found a way to get PS2 games to play on the PS3 without the need for expensive Emotion Engine hardware inside the system.

As far as I know there's no PSOne tech in there (or the PSP for that matter) so there's software/firmware that allows those games to run. Of course you'll have to buy certain games over again but I'm sure they'll make them cheap enough to make it worth getting from the PSN Store.

What would be cool if they put PS2 games in the Home Arcade. That would be sick if they could get that to work.
