Sony's Phil Harrison spills the beans on PS3 backwards compatibility and downloadable back catalogue.
Vib Ribbon on the PS1
1UP.com has been speaking with Harrison about all things backwards compatibility related. Firstly, the PlayStation 3 will not perform any visual enhancements to PlayStation 2 games - this includes increasing PS2 game resolution. Upscaling games to output at a higher resolution, like what happens to Xbox games on the Xbox 360, could still be a possibility.
"They are as exactly as they were," said Harrison, claiming that Sony preferred the games in their original form.
