[LOL Sony] EU getting screwed with PS3 BC

"The backwards compatibility is not going to be as good as the U.S. and Japan models," a Sony spokesman said."


"Software will take over some of the functionality that was originally taken care of by dedicated chips, which means far fewer PlayStation 2 (PS2) games can be played on a European PS3 compared with the Japanese and American PS3 models which play 98 percent of old games."

I'm glad I picked up an import now, although I'm 50-50 expecting to be shafted with a region lock on EU games (yes, I know they've denied it, that means about as much as a bag of magic beans)

Edit: can we lock this please?
