Sony PS3 to feature PS2 core

Posted on Wednesday, June 07 2006 @ 14:30 CEST by Thomas De Maesschalck
The Sony PlayStation 3 is rumoured to achieve backward compatibility with the PS2 through hardware, not emulation:
Sony will include the PS2 chipset in each PS3 in a move that likely means that the price of the PS3 will rise to compensate for the inclusion of the PS2.

It can be speculated that by using the same hardware as the PS2, there may not be any visual upgrade when playing PS2 games on the PS3.
