European PlayStation 3's backwards compatitbility needs a little work

by: John -
I'm hoping and pretty sure that because Cynamite got a unit prior to launch date that it's the reason only one game from the list below works on the European PlayStation 3. Sony doesn't have a reason to push the BC update now anyways since no official units are on sale over there. The firmware version was 1.50 so the lack of titles that worked can be attributed to that. So of the games below, only one worked for the guys at Cynamite.
  • God of War
  • MGS 2: Sons of Liberty
  • MGS 3: Snake Eater
  • Shadow of the Colossus
  • Guitar Hero 2
  • Prince of Persia: The Two Thrones
  • Okami
  • GTA: Liberty City Stories
  • Eragon
  • Final Fantasy X-2
  • Ratchet & Clank 3
  • Lumines Plus
The lucky one was Eragon. Others came up with the screen saying to wait for a future update. I hope this isn't another Xbox 360 fiasco here but we'll have to wait and see once the launch officially happens. Remember, they said they would have about 1200 titles working when the unit is launched in Europe. In Sony speak, that means about 20. *ba-dum* *ching*
