it's starting to annoy me the way people are dissing the console for not being backwards compatable... the 360 is hardly great for backwards compatability, PLUS, why would you buy a PS3 to play PS2 games??? Thats pathetic. Buy a PS2 if you wanna play PS2 games. You didn't hear people complain when the SNES didnt play NES games. ;-)

xbox.com/en-…htm

Yea, coz that's hardly any games.

But I do agree with your point. I never played PS1 games on my PS2, xbox games on my 360, or PS2 games on my ps3.

must admit, since i've owned my ps3 i've not even touched my Ps2 games

Sony were the one boasting about ten years of backwards compatibility and criticising Microsoft for their inferior software backwards compatibility. Microsoft on the other hand were doubtful if the 360 would offer any backwards compatibility and have remained relatively quiet on the subject, it's not hard to see why people 'dis' Sony for backwards compatibility when they went to software backwards compatibility and have now removed it entirely.

I didn't buy a PS3 to play PS2 games however it's a useful feature, just as I don't have an Xbox set up beside every 360 I prefer not to have a PS2 set up beside every PS3. Although the PS3 is technically superior to the PS2 that doesn't mean all PS2 games are automatically inferior, far from it in fact and I'm sure I'm not the only person with a strong catalogue of PS2 games that I wish to return to from time to time. While it's not a deal breaker for me given the choice I'd prefer the console with backwards compatibility hence I've grabbed the 60 GB PS3s while I can (as well as for the additional USB ports, media card readers etc.) It's frustrating the PS3 model with backwards compatibility was not sold as a PAL version, only the software bc one - I'd have grabbed an NTSC one but as my games are PAL it wouldn't have been much use.

I just gave my Girflriends son ALL of my PS2 games as i got the PS3 on the dixons deal i would never play them again, his smile was enough to make me feel like i done the best thing and like in another post in this thread i never played ps1 on ps2 :thumbsup:

I agree completely however it didnt stop the sony fan club saying that that was a reason not to buy a dreamcast, or the same people taking the pi$$ when the 360 struggled. personally if i was to get a ps3 tehre is only a handful of ps2 games i would miss, BUT it is STILL worth taking into account.

The most flawed line of thought i read is

This PS3 cant play my ps2 games ergo it doesnt have BC. Therefore the 360 is better.

WTH? When did the 360 start playing ps2 games.

Only £80 away from becoming affordable.

Agreed. And even then with the amount of lacklustre titles on PS3 it would still feel like a total rip-off :

Does the 360 Arcade/Core have backward compatibility (BC), or is it only the pro/premium/elite models because the BC is emulated and needs some code on the hard disk?

Arcade does not have bc -you need a hard drive for that - i only use bc for sniper elite xbox if it was fully bc id get a lot more games that i never got when i have my xbox

TBH if you want to play xbox games get an xbox same with ps2 games

Nice deal, if my 360 (that I bought today) doesn't have a fault and they're actually that noisy I'll be selling it and buying this.

Lol lacklustre titles, just this month Haze, Rachet and Clank and Unreal … Lol lacklustre titles, just this month Haze, Rachet and Clank and Unreal Tournament 3 are all coming out only on the PS3 and then theres the many great exclusives coming out next year so I don't think the PS3 lacks good games argument can really be used anymore:thumbsup:




UT3 is gonna be out for X-Box 360 as well, and Haze has also been announced for 360 too. So your point is rather flawed there. By the way, I'm no "Fanboy" before you accuse me of such. I don't own either console. I infact don't have any console at all. Just a PC (which doesn't play any games I might add.) But I know that 360 Releases this Xmas FAR outweigh the quality of games available on PS3. Halo 3, Bioshock, Mass Effect, Orange Box & COD4. I know which I'd rather have in my Xmas stocking

Anyway, I still don't think this Deal is any good as a PS3 for £280 just isn't good enough when the quality of titles aren't really there.

Alan wake is 360 only but most of the games that are on ps3 and 360 will run on the 360 better for the simple face that the devs are used to it now

ut3 will be out on 360 mid 2008. haze will be out on 360 but a date hasnt even been confirmed. anyone know what 360 exclusives will be out soon?

UT3 and Haze will come out on the 360, but that won't be until middle to end of next year. Then again, if I really wanted Gears of War, Bioshock or Halo 3, they are all coming out on PC (Bioshock already out, Gears of War out on PC this month and Halo 3 will probably be out on PC at the end of next year) and Orange Box and COD4 are coming out/already out on PS3, so I'm not missing out on much to be honest. Next year games like Tekken 6, Killzone 2, MGS4, GT5 and FFXIII are all coming exclusive to PS3 and I'll be getting a few of these games, so for me the PS3, but for you the 360 is better so everyone will have a different opinion on the matter.

Alicom all 3 of those games look like they're going to be excellent. I'm probably just going to go for Haze but it's a tricky decision.

yh i think haze looks the best out of them. i like ut3 maybe will get it when its cheaper. but haze really looks good.
i dont really care what comes out on 360 and ps3 as long as im getting the game then im good.

I think there is good reason to own all of them, but you have to get COD4, it is out in less then 10 days - already getting 10/10 in reviews.

UT3 may not even come out this year (earliest will be just before xmas), and Haze is only geeting mixed feedback at the moment. But I am actually really looking forward to it because I still play Timesplitters (same makers, been playing 4 player splitscreen TS 1-3 for nearly 6 years), so Im hoping they will have awesome offline multiplayer.

yh i heard ut3 might get delayed but whats nice about ut3 is that you can download mods. cod4 looks really good. i might just buy cod4 and haze.

last question. my cousin is coming back from the states and cod 4 will be out this monday and she will be back on the friday is it worth importing one? and it will be equivelant to 30 pounds

No doubt, all are top, TOP games, but I would be exausted playing 5 shooters in a row, PS3 at least has a balance of Platforming (Rachet & Clank), Action (Uncharted, Assasins Creed), Shooters (COD4, Orange Box, Haze), Racing (GT5:P, Burnout, NFS) etc...

Its probably only about £5 cheaper, and you would only get it a few days earlier - I would just get the UK release just for resale/trade-in value (if you decide to sell it).

did you hear about gt5? there will be a top gear track and inside the game you can downmload top gear episodes. its going to be well cool.
i think im going of topic.
yh ill just wait for uk copy. price of a imported one would go down alot if i wanted to resell it.

Well I'm going to get UT3 definitely, mainly because of reviews I've read comparing the PS3 version favourably to the PC version, plus it has keyboard and mouse support...finally a FPS console game that I can play as a FPS should be played!

EDIT: Regarding your question about importing COD4, I'd hold off getting it as there isn't any info at the moment on whether the online servers are worldwide or not, which could mean you'd have to play on US servers and would probably get a rubbish ping.

wow does it support keyboard and mouse?

Yep, it will do! :-D Never could get the hang of playing FPS games with a joypad after playing most of my life on a PC with a keyboard and mouse, so I'm happy.
