It’s been quite the couple of days for Sony. The company announced at E3 this week the launch of the PlayStation Network Video Download Service as well as the 80 GB version of the PS3 for the same price as the 40 GB model.
Does this mean that it will no longer be possible to buy a backwards compatible PS3 with Memory Card slots? This won't be that great of a deal if it means you are just trading more storage space for backwards compatibility and memory card slots
You shouldn't feel sorry for anyone who can afford a $499 PS3. The lack of backwards compatibility is a huge issue for me for example. I have tons of PS1 and 2 games I enjoy very much and would hate to keep 2 consoles together. Is it really so hard to code a proper emulator on the PS3 hardware?
