Gamezine: As Sony's backwards compatibility patents make the rounds, a German website has supposedly gained comment from a Sony employee.
We were quick to point out that the unearthed Sony patents for the emulation of the PS2's CPU (Emotion Engine) on the PlayStation 3 did not imply full backwards compatibility. This was for the simple fact that the PS3 had already been software emulating the Emotion Engine since early-2007 when it was ripped out of European PS3s.
However, the fact remained that the patent was filed in December 2008 with a publication date of only last week.
This brings us to the German website Demon News, which claims to have gained comment from a Sony employee.
