PlayStation 3 PS3 can't play old game versions properly

#1
i was looking through the internet yesturday and i was reading up about the new ps3 on this other forum and OMG what did i find out ps3 have crap graphics for ps2 games if you play it on a ps2 the game looks fine but play it on ps3 looks so bad that even a ps1 game has better graphics!!

the problem can be fixed by a simple update but sony doesnt wish to change it :-o

It hurts the processing power of the PS3 to have to be BC for PSX and PS2, so they just crapped up the graphics to save for the PS3 games. It was a downfall of the PS2, it had more power than it used.

Yeah thats pretty dumb of them to just not fix it. I guess it could be a lot worse though, if they didn't have an update then it would be a big issue.

How is Xbox having problems with playing old games? Link please?

Also, Chad, crap graphics on HD are obviously going to look better. They only look better because they're on a better TV. But yes, the power of processor is held back with backwards compatibility.

Can I Play Xbox Games on Xbox 360?

If a link is what you want, a link is what you will get
Yes, we're not retarded, we know the system is backwards compatible, but you said there was a problem.

So, what's the problem? You said there was a problem with playing Xbox games on the 360. There's only a problem if you cheap out and buy a core system because then you need a hard drive to play Xbox games.
