IGN Called it the comeback kid, well Games Thirst says it never went anywhere.
I just want my PS2 games on my PS3, but I have the 40gb..
That would be nice Spawn, but Sony wants your money, and so, eventually you'll have to pay for them via PSN. How's that for a deal? No?
I don't understand why I got a disagree, all I did was wish I could play my ps2 games again.. geez people on here are weird.
Whoever it was, the guy was obviously too chicken wuss to say why. Or his mind crapped out on him on the last second and clicked disagree instead. PS3 is very very very open to the possibility to emulate the PS2 games one way or the other. You just have to give it time. Hopefully if the emulation is successful, it's for the disc based games. Hell i'll pay money just to get the capability.
the ps2 is on its way out, about to hit its official 10 year run.. at that moment i expect BC to return to the PS3.. i also predict that no one will care.. LOL no seriously.. i think we are already addicted to HD upgrades like god of war collections i have syphon filter digitally downloaded on my ps3 but i would pay for the series on one blu ray in HD.. then again, i would play socom II on ps2
What the hell are you talking about? Edit: *Gets back from watching the GoW3 trailer* Ohhhhhhhhhhh Edit: Damn it you edited your comment! Now mine doesn't make any sense!
OMG I was having the SAME issue just the other day: http://n4g.com/RedirectToOb... People here are indeed some weird sensitive mofo's
every1 complains that ps3 lost its backwards compatibility, but whose fault is that. when they had on the market you didnt buy 1 cuz u said it was too expensive. so they removed the ps2 chip and made it cheaper and still u guys arent happy
I believe they will release PS2 games on the PSN when they discontinue the PS2 AND PSP2 has been released, the PS2 games will be playable on PS3 and PSP2 just like the PSOne classics.
"every1 complains that ps3 lost its backwards compatibility, but whose fault is that. when they had on the market you didnt buy 1 cuz u said it was too expensive. so they removed the ps2 chip and made it cheaper and still u guys arent happy" Exactly. Anybody that dares complain that there is no BC in their 40 gig or other PS3 console needs to remember they had their chance. If you complain, then why didn't you buy the 60 gig? I have two PS3's, one being a 60 gig and the other a Slim. Do I play PS2 games much? Nope. BC is for when the console is first released IMHO and now that there are tons of great PS3 games, you should just be moving on to the current gen games.
@MAiKU I'm sure PS2 games will have the same treatment as GOW Collection, but for download on the PSN
I agree with the article 100% since it is a confirmation of what they said earlier ~ http://188.8.131.52/search... (had to use a google cache of the link) This article also reminds me of this one about BD and how it went through the same thing as DVD ~ http://news.cnet.com/8301-1...
"IGN Called it the comeback kid, well Games Thirst says it never went anywhere." I couldn't agree more. PS3 is now in a place where only will keep on rising.
Damn straight. I'm going to have PS2 in my clan name tag from now on for a few months in remembrance of the PS2, the console that only did everything. I also give a shout out to the Dreamcast which was one badass system also, hence forth I will also use Sega as my clan name from time to time. Long live the older systems for you will not be forgotten by me.
Thank Sony for Revolutionizing the gaming industry & not giving up.
Sony - Model of consistency, satisfaction and determination
Not being a fanboy, but: Revolutionary, Innovative, Variety for Casuals and Hardcore, best for Entertainment, that is what PS3 offers. And those who are complaining about PSN (also is free) will come with PSN Premium, amazing and better Services than others can't provide. Even they have the most anticipated games in 2010, not only 1 or 2 games. I also check the Catalog of exclusives for 2010, and is huge, also more variety and not the same generic thing, not even the competitors can look at that. I still prefer my PC, but for Console. PS3 is the smart choice for Gaming and Entertainment.
get off n4g and go watch gttv gow 3 trailer!!
wisest comment ever
Go reserve GOWlll in fulll now!
the more I read this site the less I want to.
GameThirst is just as bad as Gaming Bolt and Dual Shockers. IMO, the WORST gaming sites out there.
Agree. This site has NEVER written anything other than flamebait...At least other sites try, Gamesthirst is squarely aimed at stirring the N4G fanboys. Pathetic website.
That article was flamebait how? Maybe the other articles are but this one just points out a bunch of details people seem to have forgotten since the PS2 era. I'd consider a flamebait article to be praising one console/game/etc and bashing the other, but not once in this article did they do that. You want flamebait, Jim Sterling says hello.
IGN Called it the comeback kid, well Games Thirst says it never went anywhere. according to this one sentence it completely negates everything it argues. It's saying the ps3 never had a supply issue during launch, was never too expensive, never featured a drought of good exclusives etc. Yet the article says that it did. It's just poorly written and ass backwards.
sony knows what they're doing that's for sure. Now if they could just get busy on virtual reality, cuz we all know it's inevitable for them. God, i don't wanna wait til i'm 50 for that. Come on sony keep repeating yourselves!
The PS3 is unquestionably the best system as far as hardware. Thats not really up for debate. Also a long list of high rated AAA games. To name a few... Resistance 1 & 2 Uncharted 1 & 2 Killzone 2 MGS4 Demons Souls God Of War 3 Lol. I mean come on. Compare the exclusives list with an un biased mind and 9/10 times its the PS3. It was always here. Its just for some reason their was extreme media hate. It was after its capabilities had been shown that people realized Sony was absolutley a competitor. But the true Sony fans (NOT fanboys) knew the whole time their console was a masterpiece.
and your missing the other little gems like: inFamous Motorstorm 1 & 2 MAG Heavy Rain And I would say the PS3 hasn't repeated YET. PS2 has been selling strong for a long time - WHEN & WHERE do you think they'll end up.
The real list is like this: Resistance 2 Uncharted 2 Killzone 2 Demon's Souls (AAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAA etc) Infamous Ninja Gaiden Sigma 2 MGS4 Motorstorm 2 Heavy Rain (most likely) God of War 3 (most likely) Wipeout HD + Fury Super Stardust HD There. If you own a PS3 but haven't played, at least tried, or own all these games... (Except the unreleased ones) then I hate you. Especially if you don't own Demon's Souls, NGS2 and Wipeout.
dont forget GRAN TURISMO F**KING 5!
The PS2 library was a million times better than what's available on the PS3. This website is a load of fanboy drivel.
Sony has established a great business model and has been very successful over the years. However, the competition is a lot tougher this gen. I don't see them having as high a percentage of the market share as they did last gen.
BUY MAG PEOPLE! JOIN THE FIGHT!
XBOX 360 is dying! Wooohoo! Go Sony warriors! Smash those bots up!
Sony warriors lol it makes me laugh every time.
Sony Warriors Unite!
media praising PS3 now?
waiting on ps2 games to cross over to ps3 then its GAME ON!!
The PS3 has done very well, and it'll continue to do well right up until the PS4. Will it beat the Wii in sales figures? I doubt it, but it will continue to gain a bigger market share; and with all these games coming out i.e. Heavy Rain and GT5, I can see this will be a great year for the PS3, and for gamers.
http://download.gameblog.fr... ;) They knew the POWER of the PS3!!! ;-P + 2 things i want from SONY - Bring back Ken Kutaragi!!!(don't listen to the internet haters SONY) ;) + Bring back PS2 playback on PS3(just like GOD Ken Kutarag made it) ;) (i got 65'ish PS2 games, my 60GB PS3 plays them but my 80GB don't) Apart from that i'm HAPPY;) Keep up the good work SONY!!!;)
This is a pretty good article. I don't really agree with everything in the article, and it appears to be based mostly on anecdotes. But still pretty good. If you care to know what I disagree with then keep reading, but if not that's cool too. Repeat No. 1 - PS3 shortages were stemmed by not releasing in any more territories than the supply could handle. The first 3 weeks after release it was pretty tough to put your hands on one, but by Christmas retailers were restocked and good to go and the people looking to make a quick buck on eBay were sorely disappointed. Repeat No. 2 - The PS2 launched at the same price as the PS1. I don't recall anyone really complaining about that other than mainstream media. Gaming media applauded the fact that the prices were the same. The PS3 launched at twice the price of the PS2. People were definitely disenfranchised because of that. Many couldn't afford a PS3 until it hit $299. Repeat No. 3 - The PS2 did not further DVD like PS3 furthered Blu-ray. It just did not. People were already on board with optical storage for games because we'd already been through it with PS1, Dreamcast and Saturn. And not all PS2 games came on DVD like PS3 games come on Blu-ray. I still have many blue-tinted CD's with PS2 games on them. What truly pushed DVD adoption is manufacturers just dropping production of VHS due to how expensive it was. Also, DVD had been on the market for 3 years before PS2 came along. Blu-ray owes its success fully to PS3 since the majority of Blu-ray players were PS3's. Repeat No. 4 - This is total opinion with nothing more than anecdotal evidence behind it. What some people call intricate others might call eccentric. In their early years developers struggled with the intricacies of each platform, so I'm not sure this is as big of positive as the article makes it out to be. Ultimately, however, these intricacies have led to great games. Repeat No. 5 - Opinion, yet again. Practically every console has a dearth of games after it releases. There are usually only one or two notable games and that's it. To be perfectly candid, God of War III and Heavy Rain are fantastic exclusives. But those games could easily be done on PC. And probably the 360 as well. Overall a good read, but Ernice Gilbert's relatively short memory is definitely showing with this one. The PS3 is doing a fantastic job since its rebirth late last year and there are some really fantastic games out there.
I wish I got one of those silver PS3's
it is not all about games no more but what is more popular and sales.
no it has not. Everyone I know has a PS2, even non gamers. While not a lot of people have PS3s.
