Cynamite.de has managed to get their grubby paws on a PS3 PAL release console and so they tested the back compatability on it..
The results are terrible, of the 12 top PS2 games a grand total of 1 worked correctly… and that was Eragon which I personally don’t think should be in anyones top 12…
Anyway there is still a launch day patch to be applied but so far this looks like very bad news for Sony and they will get hammered on release day if their BC is that bad….. Just as they where getting out of trouble as well….
The list of games tested are claimed by Cynamite to be the top-twelve PS2 software titles, and are listed as followed:
God of War MGS 2: Sons of Liberty MGS 3: Snake Eater Shadow of the Colossus Guitar Hero 2 Prince of Persia: The Two Thrones Okami GTA: Liberty City Stories Eragon Final Fantasy X-2 Ratchet & Clank 3 Lumines Plus
Its reported that only ONE of these twelve games operates properly – Eragon. All other titles refused to run, and referred the user to future software updates and the Sony Website to read the downward compatibility list.
