Every PS3 model plays PS1 games. In fact, I think the PS4 is the first console released by Sony that doesn't play PS1 games.

This is also news to me. Thanks for the info. I went from a BC PS3 that stopped reading discs to a Super Slim and didn't know about that.

I had to download hitman twice like most people because for some reason 3 episodes didn’t unlock the first time, but when I go to look for it under the ps+ tab under library it isn’t there it’s under purchases so is it free of the ps+ license now?

It can’t handle PS1 games. Needs more horsepower.

I had my BC PS3 die a long time ago. You're going to have to let it go. Buy a brand new super slim, it should last you another 10 years or more. That way you can play PS1+PS3 games. Then pick up a used PS2 dirt cheap somewhere, its the only economical option at this point. To buy another used BC PS3 is just throwing away money this far into their lifespans.

I still have a working BC 60 gig. It did died but I took it to a place to fix it. I'm sure the clock is ticking on it, but I kept it anyways and still bought a new slim PS3. But if the rumored PS5 backwards compatibility for all systems is true then it will have a lot less value.

 

I would suggest a slim over the super slim mainly because of the little things like the grooves, slide open top for putting discs in, lasers go out faster on them and the hard drive slot missing parts.

 

Ps2 wise you aren't going to get them dirt cheap anymore so good luck there.  Best deal you are likely to find is through estarland for around 65-75$.

Same advice, get the slim not the super slim.

I disagree on the point about choosing a slim over a super slim.  I have two super slims on my PSN account, and both work great.  I dumped the slim to buy a super slim.  The super slims have a later manufacture date on them, so a used one likely will not have as much playtime/wear on it.  And I don't think that enough time has passed from one generation to the next yet to determine if the slide top or the lasers will wear out faster on the super slim.  It seems to be more of an aesthetic concern for fans of the slims than anything else.  Maybe in 10 years we'll know for sure?

Do Legendary Fishing says it has PS Move support, for a nonVR game. Does it really? Are there other games like this? Is it really a VR game.

Well, as if things can't help but go from bad to worse, last week Tuesday I'm making a left turn on a green arrow and the woman in the oncoming lane decides, "Eh, why stop?"  T-Bones me, obliterates both passenger doors, blows the airbags and totals my car.  Stress ensues since then as I attempt to find a good deal on a new car.

Be glad you walked away. I had someone blow a red light from the right turn lane as I came across f(as in his was never a straight lane, but turn only)--if I had been a second faster or harder on the gas he'd have T-boned me, NO airbag in that car of mine. Instead, he hit my front bumper, spun me out and I've had recurring neck pain since--this was 2002. Now my neck's a fussy thing--I have to have the exact proper elevation to sleep, sit up straight and can't really hunch without having to crack my neck every hour or so.

Glad you're okay.

The reason for this is that Sony owns the patent for the chips for the PS1, and they are extremely cheap to manufacture now, so all the chips from the PS1 are included on all models.  PS2 chips are more expensive and one of the ways they saved money in the PS3 era is to remove them...  This is why only launch PS3's have hardware BC.

 

The exact opposite is true for MS and the 360, they do not own the rights for the chips and therefore would always have to pay extra for them...  This is why the XBone's BC is software based.

To be fair, the Metal Gear Solid Bundle was the last of the PS2 BC, and came out some 18 months after the PS3 release--June 2008 vs November 2006, respectively.

I have that bundle. It began to sound like a jet engine when it was on, even after multiple deep cleanings... I was afraid the ylod was the next step, so I packed it up and put it on display in my game room.

Streaming The Division 2 Beta for about an hour or so if anybody wants to see it in action:

I posted this in the Xbox thread, but Dead or Alive probably has more fans here:

 

For those not paying attention, Dead or Alive 6 has the worst costume unlock system ever created.  In previous games, beating arcade mode would unlock a costume for the character you used (or 2 costumes in tag mode).  In DoA6, you get "parts" of a random costume for a random character. 

 

https://i.redd.it/denolnyetnj21.jpg

 

Beating arcade mode awarded ONE part for a costume that costs 1000 parts.  After getting the 1000 parts, you have to spend in game currency to actually get the costume.  Quest mode gives more parts, but there are only so many quests (you probably won't get the costume you wanted after beating all the quests).

 

They basically put a F2P system in a $60 game.  Koei Tecmo greed is insane.

Wario64 tweeted that Hitman First Season from PS+ in February isn’t showing purchased for a lot of people. I checked and had to “rebuy” it. Just an FYI to check, even if you claimed it.

Weird. Mine wasn't showing purchased either. It's got to be something with it saying "EXCLUSIVE" rather than "FREE" like everything else.

 Oh most definitely they work fine just they have a number of aesthetic and minor issues over the slim. Super slim is the worst to clean of the bunch thanks to the grooves. Though it's still not a dust and fingerprint magnet as much as the phat was.  The disc reading sound is also noticeably louder than the slim and phat which I forgot about. Fan wise it's quieter than the phat.  My launch phat is quiet as the slim but it's probably an exception to the rule.  Laser wise my experience has been that slide top lasers tend to go faster in previous systems.  The ps2 slim and gamecubes lasers both died significantly faster than my phat ps2 or wiis.  But yeah nothing confirmed yet for the super slim that I know of laser wise.

I had to read that twice... Minus a decade, of course.

That was actually software BC... It was only partial BC and Sony retired it pretty quickly.

Push Square published this article but has since deleted it. Tried the Google cache but apparently, it was deleted before it was cached. The article isn't inaccurate because they did indeed turn off the ability to comment on PS Blog posts. Wonder what's going on.

I was going to mention that around the time they posted the 2 free games for this month. Likely, all they were going to get was negative comments so they disabled it. They don’t give a shit about us, they’re just protecting their brand. Still, I’m curious why PushSquare would rescind that article unless Sony reached out to them in some way.

Not surprising though, Sony basically released it and left it to die.

True

 

I didn't realize it lasted seven years though, 2012 seems like a lifetime ago.

I'm still hoping they do a console release of Uncharted: Golden Abyss... I have no idea if today's news helps/hurts/or has no effect on that. Probably nil.
