Submission + - PS3's backward incompatibility

JFMulder writes: According to GameIndustry.biz, Sony has decided to remove the Emotion Engine (PS2's main CPU) from the new model PS3 launched in Europe next month in order to drive the cost down. According to the same article, the console will have limited backward compatibility with PS2 games at launch and a list of games will be made available. One can speculate that these cost savings won't be passed on to the consumer since Sony is trying to get the cost of the console down as much as possible to break even. One has to wonder why they haven't done that 2 months ago if Sony truly believes that backward compatibility is not 'that important'.
