Backwards ps2 games run on this at download.....nothing That is why I bought a 60gb PS3 it has the hardwear built in for old games.

considering the fact its wifi options were tested with the FCC it will have wifi built in

Backward Compatibility, although not as extensive or effective, can be run by software emulation. The North American consoles use hardware emulation but just because this new SKU will not have it, e.g. like the European consoles, does not mean it won't have BC.

It will. My console runs on software emulation and I can play PS2 games on it. Why wouldn't Sony do the same for the new SKU?

Does Sony regularly update their BC list?

They'd better get started. When these puppies start rolling out everyone will want one. Hell, I'm getting my wife her own.

That is how they can sell it at this price. Not as many USB ports also.

There are only 2 USB ports on this new PS3.
