thats a bit of a let down, especially with sony once putting across the great backwards compatibility of the ps2 and the playstation as the ultimate brand/console. If you want to take over the market, having every console you make under the same name and compatible with all old software is a good idea, since users may just stick to the brand with each new generation. the playstation no longer being the current leader isnt helping, and I guess making it backwards compatible just adds unnecessary cost in the long run. the wii sounds too energetic for me, though! Lol. Would have only wanted one for zelda, mind you. :-)
I guess Sony would rather sell machines than having them sit on the shelf, and it appears they had to remove some features in order to get the price down to a more user friendly level. In my opinion they should have gone the Microsoft route and offered different specs for different prices.
