100% just isn’t 100% anymore…

When Sony was announcing the backwards compatibility of their console they mentioned they put the PS2 processor in “to insure 100% backwards compatibility.” When asked why there were problems with some games and their BC they said “from the start, expected backwards compatibility to be less than 100%.” What’s even better is their comment on the issue regarding no sound on old games for the systems and said ” some people can put up with playing games that lack sound.”

I for one can do without sound (or video for that matter)… as long as I’m not paying $600 for playing games without sound or video.

Again, Xbox 360 does NOT support all Xbox 1.0 games, but they never claimed 100% BC. They are working on adding more games all the time, based on which games people actually play. Besides, I still have my original Xbox so I can play whatever I want, when I want. I can do the same with your PS2.. as long as you didn’t trade it in on a pre-order! }:)

  1. Hmmm, there is meant to be a patch out soonish though, That’s what sony have been saying since the news got out.

    At the end of the day, Sony is going to continue talking about MS and I am surprised MS have been so quiet in these last few days.

  2. What would M$ say? You suck at this Sony? What happened to the great Sony? No, they don’t have to say anything because Sony is doing their work FOR them… makes bashing the console (which isn’t even out yet and has problems) really easy. Sorry but Sony has a real uphill battle here and M$ knows it. And “a patch” ? we’re talking about 100+ games discovered in the last few days. It means emulating nearly every one.. just like what M$ planned on doing all along.

  3. Don’t get me wrong, I’m laughing at this as much as you are. Sony are fools, they have been for the last year. All the crap with the simultanious launch, key games delayed until next year (Oblivion) and now the promised b/c issues.

    They are shooting themselves in the foot left right and centre.

    MS are taking the best approach to it, but if I was MS, I’d just find it so hard right no, NOT to say anything.

  4. Yeah, I can’t not say anything.. as you can tell. ๐Ÿ™‚ I’m sure they would like to but they just don’t play like that and I respect them for that. I saw the Oblivion thing and laughed out loud.. it just goes to show the DON’T support developers well anymore. I’m afraid Sony is really in for it this time…. which is fine by me! ๐Ÿ™‚

    Great blog by the way!

  5. I know, the Oblivion thing was amazing. At this rate the PSP version of it will be out before the PS3 one which had so much more dev time. Haha. ๐Ÿ˜›

    Your blog isn’t too bad either. ๐Ÿ˜‰

  6. Hahaha, yeah.. and probably look better too. ๐Ÿ˜€
