The PS3 is looking like a bad deal for Europe........

They have removed the PS2 chipset for European PS3s meaning very few PS2 games will run on it.

This is the machine they are asking Europeans to pay roughly $200 more than our US counterparts...i've read a lot on games websites and such, most people seem pretty pissed.

Sony isn't actually publishing a list of playable PS2 games till launch day, which makes me believe it will be a relatively short list

Consumer electronics are a bad deal for Europe - period. I'm amazed at the prices over there compared with North America, sometimes....

I think Sony got too arrogant and not it's coming back at them. I see PS3s lined up in stores now. I don't know one person that owns one nor wants one. Not for $600, or is it $500? Either way, nonsense.

Why did they remove the PS2 chip? Backwards compatibility is huge.

In their words 'to concentrate on new features and software to work with this exciting new technology'.

Considering that the best games for a PS3 will still be a year away at least for Europe, and considering that the likes of FFXII was only released here last week, people will probably be put off getting a PS3 for a good while to come.

No doubt initial stocks will sell out here, whether there will be significant demand after that remains to be seen.

It just seems utterly bizarre and stupid that they'd do that. Anybody would think that they don't want the PS3 to be a success!

I asked a friend a couple of days ago if the ps3 or the 360 had better graphics and he said that the ps3 definitely looks better than the 360. I actually considered getting a 360 because it would've been cheaper but nah I'm still waiting out on the ps3.

The PS3 ain't quite a sinkin ship yet, but Devil May Cry 4 has gone multiformat, it will be out on the XBOX 360 as well, so that is another exclusive Sony has lost, along with Virtua Fighter 5, and in the UK at least, shops are still taking PS3 pre-orders, and will seemingly still have many units left over......it doesn't look like it is going to sell that fast here at all...

Has anyone heard if the PS3 will support PS1 games?

They keep talking about backwards compatibility but all they seem to mention are PS2 games...
