A recent patent from Sony revealed that it’s working on a Cell-based PS2 emulator. This doesn’t seem like much but with the rumors of a slim PS3 in the works, this would make some sense. This could be in software form which means that current PS3 owners.
Whether the case, this is good news for PS3 owners who want to take some PS2 games and fire’em up on the PS3.
Update: Rumor has it Sony will start manufacturing the slim PS3 in July. No price yet but many people (analysts) say it’s likely to be priced at $299.
Update 2: Looks like Sony is giving it’s customers a great deal. The PS3 80GB is now being bundled with Killzone 2 & Metal Gear 4 for a price of…..$400??!!!! What a bargain. Looks like they’re trying to clear shelves. For what? The PS3 Slim? Could be, stay tuned.
