We've all prattled and moaned about the lack of backwards compatibility in many PS3s to the point where we're almost bored. Lest we forget, Sony has sent news of an intriguing patch that will go a tiny distance toward rectifying the situation. For SingStar
fans, at least.
The company is releasing a patch today that will enable owners of SingStar
PS3 with a back catalogue of PS2 SingStar
games to play the older discs through their buxom next-gen console.
The way it will work is pretty straightforward. When the patch goes live at 10am (GMT) today, users who download it will just need to start a session in the PS3 game as normal, but will then be able to switch to PS2 discs at will.
While this is clearly not the system-wide fix enabling backwards compatibility that many are looking for, it's certainly intriguing. It doesn't seem to take all that much to make a PS3 run PS2 games, does it?Source: ThreeSpeech
