PS3 to Support PSOne and PS2 Games

  In light of the Playstation 2's compatibility with older PSOne games, rumors have run wild concerning the possibility of similar compatibility with Sony's upcoming platform. Ken Kutaragi, head of Sony Computer Entertainment, put those rumors to rest recently when he addressed this very issue, stating that the Playstation 3 will feature backward compatibility similar to that found on the Playstation 2.

   "PSOne runs on the Playstation 2 through emulation rather than actual hardware. Playstation 3 will offer the same compatibility for PS2 software, and the format will continue forever," Kutaragi told Japanese newspaper Asahi Timber.
