Our new Indie Games subforum is now open for business in G&T. Go and check it out, you might land a code for a free game. If you're developing an indie game and want to post about it, follow these directions. If you don't, he'll break your legs! Hahaha! Seriously though.
Our rules have been updated and given their own forum. Go and look at them! They are nice, and there may be new ones that you didn't know about! Hooray for rules! Hooray for The System! Hooray for Conforming!
Okay, please, no flames in this thread. A friend of mine wants to get a PS3, and I'm sort of the techno-geek among my group, but I don't know the exact answer to his question as I don't own a PS3:
Which SKU's have backwards compat, and which ones don't? I thought the 20 and 60 (or was it 80?) had the Emotion Chip, but that later SKU's not only removed the chip, but software emulation as well. Is that the case? To get backwards compat do you have to get one of the older SKU's? He isn't so much worried about the Emotion Chip, he just wants to consolidate down his entertainment area and remove the PS2. If he were to go pick up one of the new 399 SKU's, would it have any backwards compat at all?
