    It was compatible. They removed the EE/GS chip (practically the heart of the PS2 Slimline) from the PAL versions of the PS3.

    The reason?

    Simple.

    Less chips -> less manufacturing cost.

    Early adopters ftw!!! I have a launch ps3 with emotion engine and its all good!

    Well seeing as they have about 1,000 ps2 games Backwards compatible when the EE was removed I think there on track to great support.

    Out of a total of 16,478 PS and PS2 games combined?

    (that's what I read anyway).

    I don't have the post count to post a link but here is a snippet

    "A Web site listing games that would work currently include about 1,700 or so titles, however the number of games that are known to work without any issues is significantly less, and many titles are listed more than once. "If your game is not listed here, emulation is not yet supported on PlayStation 3," it advises customers."

    The site with the compatibility list doesn't specify ps1 games but I mean if the dreamcast was able to emulate ps1 games im sure the ps3 would make it a breeze but good question.

    Um, true.. But still, they've got a lot of problems doing it. I heard even the Final Fantasy series doesn't run on the non EE/GS version.

    Ah, if anyone's wondering, I read that from an article in Atomic Magazine Australia.
