Sony pulls a Nintendo?

March 13, 2006

Rumors going around are saying that Sony is planning on having a downloadable content service like the Revolution that will allow people to play PS1 and PS2 games on the PS3.

Ok, for starters, if you haven’t played all the PS1 games you are interested in at this point, there’s something wrong with you. You had TWO opportunities. I even picked up a couple of PS1 games I never got around to playing when I got my PS2. Still… the last thing I would do is play a PS1 game on a $500 machine.

Now, let’s not forget that the PS3 is expected to be backwards compatible anyhow. Ebay people! Finding these discs of these old games is not that hard. Unless they are shrink-wrapped, most of these games are affordable just to get used copies.

And seriously… those will be some huge freaking downloads! I suppose we can store those downloads on our internal hard drive. Oh wait… we’re not going to have one.

If this is even remotely true, then I truly believe that Sony has completely lost it. I mean… completely.
