Sony have tried to match Microsoft by bringing out a budget version of their Playstation 3. DO NOT BUY THIS UNDER ANY CIRCUMSTANCES. Whereas the XBOX 360 core package is missing a few things, these can be bought later and the system is no different from the Pro console. But in order to bring the price down for the budget PS3, Sony had to remove a few ports and things and (here's the kicker) remove the chip that enables the PS3 to play a lot of the PS2 titles. So the 'core' PS3 has NO backward compatibility AT ALL. Something that would, I'm sure, not be pointed out to every purchaser in stores.

Nice one Sony - you had the ball once. You've well and truly dropped it, and this move just proves you're losing the plot.
