No Backward compatability for slim PS3

Posted By | On 20th, Sep. 2009

Speaking to Kotaku, Sony America marketing man John Koller told: “Backwards compatibility is off the table”. He also added:

“Now that we’re at a point where we’re three years into the lifecycle of the PS3, there are so many PS3 disc-based games that are available that we think – and noticed this from our research – that most consumers that are purchasing the PS3 cite PS3 games as a primary [reason].


“And it’s not just like 50 or 60 percent. It’s well into the 80 or 90 percentile range… Most of those are consumers who have not utilized their PS2 for a little while and they’re ready to jump into the PlayStation 3.”
