I suppose you can always buy a PS2 for $99, but this seems dumb, dumb, dumb.
Not even letting a new SKU sit for 2 months before changing the playing field again? I actually might be pissed if the two 1st party titles are what I think they might be. 'Course, it might be Lair along with RFOM.
I will say that my first purchase for my shiny PS3 has been...God of War.
The 360 is (mostly) backwards compatible (leave Riddick out of it!). The Wii is totally BC with Gamecube games. Sony is setting itself apart - in a bad way - with this change.
With the software emulation, how this saves money is beyond me. If this is a sign that Sony is starting to give up on BC (like MS basically has), I'll be really mad as this was a major selling point for a new entrant like me.
