So I bought my PS3 after a lucky win in Vegas. I just bought the cheapest one since I didn't already own a PS2. I figured that since I didn't own a PS2, I didn't have any PS2 games, and therefore, no need for backwards compatibility. I recently upgraded my hard drive to 200GB. In any case, I really want to play MGS4 and GOW3 (when it comes out), but I feel like I wouldn't be doing the games justice if I didn't play the originals first. I'm not going to buy a PS2 just to play those games and I'd even pay up to like $50 to upgrade my PS3. Since the newer systems use software to emulate the PS2, I hope they offer this at some point. I suppose the alternative would be for them to release the God of War / MGS series as PSN downloads, which I'd be fine with too. And I guess I'd get rid of load times that way too.
