80GB PS3 Model To Be Emotionless
The internet is still trying to recover from the not so surprising price cut announced from Sony yesterday. It seems there’s something Sony didn’t reveal in yesterday’s announcement and that is the fact that the new 80GB PS3 models will not include the PS2 emotion engine chip. Instead, the 80GB PS3 model will rely on software updates in order to play PS2 games, similar to how the Xbox 360 plays it’s back catalog of games.
This only really effects the 80GB PS3. The 60GB model will of course have the emotion engine in tact. 80GB model will most likely be required to download system updates in order to ensure they can play PS2 games.
