Have a PS3 that isn’t one of the original 80GB units? Need a way to play some awesome PS2 games? Sony may be working on the answer.
A recent patent by Sony shows the possibility of a PS3 add-on that would allow the PS3 to play PS2 games. Essentially, it would be like a mini stripped down PS2 that would connect to the PlayStation 3. The device would have its own processor, DVD decoder / emulator, sound processor and graphics processor.
As of right now, this is simply a patent. And in many cases, patents don’t turn into products on the market. But I think this definitely has some demand.
Would you pick one up? How is your good old PS2 fairing?
