Even the one thing that Sony has been decent at over the last few years...backwards compatibility...they fail at now.

I would love to see a PS1 game on there now...

And remember according to some Sony rep G4 invertviewed you can only play 20 year old games on the Live Arcade ...

Sony certainly lives somewhere outside of reality.

I haven't had a problem so far with any of the games. I noticed a good bit of draw distance inprovement in some of them.

300+ games are backwards compat now on 360. That's a huge chunk of their library. Not too shabby.

As for PS3, I'm sure they will work out the kinks eventually, but damn at least for right now, their older games look like shit when running on the new system.

You'd like to think so. But as has been pointed out in the video, Sony is consistently denying that there's even a problem, which has become a regular thing with them lately. So, why would they fix something that doesn't have a problem in the first place?

Now that I think about it, I think old Rummy's gonna have a place to work at after all...
