Ok, I've had this thought recently. The Wii VC is basicallly emulation for older game systems with legal ROMs. How long before someone hacks the VC or writes an application for the Wii that allows someone to load PSone games. PS2 might even be a possibility if the code is efficient enough that the emulation doesn't load down the processor too much. It's also been said multiple times that Sony is making profits in gaming due to game sales (licensing and first party games). Would Sony be willing to do their own Wii VC engine to allow playing PSone/PS2 games? They could open up a whole new audience for the games (a game sold is a game sold whether it's played on a PC through emulators or on an actual PS2). Since the Wii is about 2x the cost of a PS2 it shouldn't be a threat and much of the Wii consumers won't be in the market for a PS2 since they either have one already or were never considering one but might buy the games if the Wii can play them. All this would do is open up another market for PS games. Much like Microsoft doesn't care if windows is run on a Mac or a Dell, a copy of Windows sold is a copy sold, they have no stake in the hardware. I realize that Sony actually has a stake in the HW the games are run on but it's been said many times on this board that their profits on the HW are slim if they profit at all. If they are sucking up a loss on PS2 hardware selling games without the loss should be a bonus. If the profits are slim on the HW then selling more games should only be a benefit especially if the market is one they couldn't tap previously.
