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! }:)
