    Sorry bud, but that answer would be "No". Maybe sometime in the future, but not now. Take your PS3 back and get one with BC.

    NOPE NEVER. they will not be making them anymore so your best bet is 3 things you can do to get one that has BC

    1. Go to a pawn shop

    2. Go to every store there by u

    3. or last ebay you can find a good 60GB or 80GB MODEL make sure u see 4 usb ports in the front
    4 the BC .

    Good Luck!

    So what do you think is a better option..Keep my PS2 and just play my PS2 games on that..or sell my PS2 & PS3 and just buy a PS3 that is 100% BC

    I would just keep your PS2. The extra money/hassle needed for getting a BC PS3 is not worth it IMO.

    But, if you need electronic space (I mean you have no room for a PS3 and a PS2), then you might want to consider eBay.

    No B/C chip means no kind of software, official or homebrew, will bring B/C to your console.

    maybe you should of read the back of the box when you bought it or I don't know maybe researched it before buying it.

    but no, none of the Ps3's now have any BC with Ps2 games but all Ps3's can play all Ps1 games.

    You purchased a PS3 but when got home you tried to play a PS2 game?

    Does anyone see anything wrong with this?

    There's no such thing as a 'B/C chip' in any PS3. Software emulation of missing PS2 hardware has already been demonstrated in the 80GB PS3, sans Emotion Engine. Sony just has to want to provide software emulation of the Reality Synthesizer GPU, or the PS3 has to be hacked and a PS2 emulator ported for B/C to become a reality in the future.

    Yes, Sony has quietly gimped all new versions of the PS3.

    It's not that funny at all, soon as I got my 360 I tried some Xbox games but they didn't work. None of them did, you need the 360 HDD to play them.

    The only one on the market right now that hasn't gimped backwards compatability is nintendo with the Wii and DS.

    It's written on the back of the box in bold with a border arround it.

    Pretty damn sure the 60gb were hardware driven emulation while the 80gb ones are Software.

    So there is actually a B/C chip.

    And how has Sony quietly gimped new versions of the PS3? It runs cooler now, is quieter at the cost of the B/C that people who bought the 40gb consoles are all aware of (except for this guy).

    And Sony did make quite a few huge announcements saying that they are moving away from B/C.

    I'm sorry that the OP can't play his PS2 games on his new PS3 but take this as a sign that it is time to start playing some new games! Get playing those PS3 games now, don't wait for a few years and then start worrying if the PS4 has BC so you can catch up with all the PS3 games you never made time to play as you were busy playing PS2 games! lol, stop living in the past!
