PS3 Games are reported to contain a hardware solution that will allegedly allow it to operate on PlayStation 2 games. This is the main tone of the PS3 Games story that was featured in the magazine Ultra One.
The magazine said that PS3 Games will most definitely have new features as well as modern technological gaming breakthroughs. Aside from that, however, is the possibility of the console carrying the main components that are found in most PS2 or PlayStation 2 games. This will include Emotion Engine as well as Graphic Synthesizer.
Ultra One said that this approach of PS3 Games manufacturer Sony where backward capability is being utilized is not a formal part of the company’s long term plans for the console. As a matter of fact, a software solution is currently being developed and will most likely be installed in future alterations or modifications of the latest Sony game. This will then render the hardware of PlayStation 2 basically ineffective.
The Ultra One report has yet to be verified. However, if the story turns out to be accurate, then the possible inclusion of the PS2 hardware in the initial batches of PS3 Games that will be introduced in the market some six months away clearly points to one direction: it will tend to raise the total cost of every PS3. This will ultimately lead to greater income losses for manufacturing giant Sony. This is a somewhat contradictory position for Sony to take when one takes into consideration the intense preparation that it is making in its all-out battle for supremacy in the video game industry. This is the logic that must be remembered so that it could place its name back in the growth list category.
PS3 Games are set to be launched by middle of November this year. Simultaneous launchings of the console have already been scheduled in three different countries namely, the United States, the United Kingdom, and Japan. Reports say the game will have revolutionary interface systems, which will include the use of Blu-Ray media. This does not mean that the game will not play DVD and CD media because it still will. However, it is highly likely that Sony will make several refinements in the design of both the console and the controller. As a matter of fact, the electronics firm is scheduled to unveil the final design of the PS3 controller at the E3 games convention which is set to be held next week.
Initially, one million units of PS3 Games will be manufactured solely for the November launch
during which the games will come in black. An additional five million units are expected to be produced by the end of March next year.
PS3 Games will reportedly serve as the flagship of Sony in its quest for leadership in the estimated $25 billion video game industry. Apart from the PS3 Games objective, also in the entertainment conglomerate’s immediate plans is the domination of the next generation of DVD’s as well as the commercial viability of its Cell microchips and possibly, even control over living room electronics all around the world.
