Problems with PS3 backwards compatibility...

They's better fix this before the western release.

List of affected titles here. http://ps3.qj.net/PS3-Backwards-Compatibil...pg/49/aid/72577

And from http://au.ps3.ign.com/articles/745/745506p1.html

US, November 13, 2006 - Yesterday, we shared with you a quickly compiled list of PS2 titles that were, according to a database accessible at the official Japanese PlayStation.com site, causing problems when being played on the PlayStation 3. We only looked for the biggest games and found a list that wasn't too long. But the full list of problematic titles is apparently quite hefty.

Japan's Cnet.com reports backwards compatibility problems for over 196 PlayStation 2 titles. This figure counts multiple versions of the same game (budget versions, limited editions, etc.) as a single entity and includes the full range of problems, from simple sound issues to more dramatic freezing issues.

In response to these issues, Sony's PR department pointed out that it, from the start, expected backwards compatibility to be less than 100%. It was also good enough to point out that some people can put up with playing games that lack sound.

Oh dear.

If you read the articles, they also mention that

Again, we repeat that Sony's already addressing the matter and these compatibility issues should be fixed after the firmware update.

and a some less optimisitically way of writing it,

Regardless of this somewhat arrogant response, an official statement issued at the PlayStation.com site states that Sony will fix the problems with a future system update, and may even resort to individual patches for certain titles. When this will happen has yet to be specified.
If the PS3's running PS2 games through onboard PS2 hardware, this shouldn't happen, right?

I think you've answered your own question :(

Besides, it also depends on whether or not PS2 games didn't do some undocumented stuff, much like what happened with XBox 360 IIRC.

Well, at least they're working on it, wouldn't want to miss GT4.

To be fair to Sony (which is unusual for me) a quick once over of the list shows that the main problem is BGM and intermittent freezes. I could probably live with it (especially as Tekken 5 is the only game in the list that I own), not that I'm going to buy one anyway.

But why should you live with it? Its a poor showing by Sony. Yet more proof they cant provide what they promise.

I'm sure at one point armies of testers at Sony were testing every DVD they could to find out which ones didn't play properly on the PS2.

really? Over 7,000 games? Cant see it myself, I bet only half that number even got in the disk drive and that would have only been to test they loaded.

Not really having a go at Sony, I think these problems were expected and I'm sure they'll sort the problems with these titles pretty soon, I just reckon they checked that all the 'big' games worked then left it at that...bit lazy.

Why is it hard to believe that they tested all the games? It has to be done whenever there's a hardware revision or firmware upgrade. I'd imagine at least part of the process is automated.

Isn't this the same list that effects the Slim PS2? I seem to recall Tekken 5 not working on that as well.

Is that like a 1.6 % failure rate man Sony are teh evil etc ... ffs sticking the EE adn GS on a chip was always going to have a few issues at least they are going to fix them.

So far only 2 games in my xbox collection work on BC on the 360 - the PS3 will do pretty much all of my PS1 and PS2 titles.

Pre-PS2 launch, I was employed by SCEE to test ALL PS1 games on each of the revisions of the PS2. Each game would get a half day test and all bugs were noted as with normal games testing (the main problem was transparent textures not being transparent). There were about 10 people on the team I was on and there were a couple of teams, working 8-hour shifts. I would have thought there were more PS1 titles at that point than there are PS2 titles now. Take into account as well that we had to test all versions of a game, so if it had seperate language versions, each of those would be tested and if it had a second release both releases would be tested.

IIRC the only game that didn't work was something weird like Actua Soccer 2. It was a Gremlin title, certainly.

At the same time, there were a bunch of people watching every single DVD available on PS2s. I wanted to do the DVD testing, but my previous experience meant I got put on the games team.

The PS2 ran PS1 games through onboard PS1 hardware too, and it happened there as well.

That's a fairly long list, but most of the affected titles seem to be obscure Japanese games, so it's not that big a deal, AFAIC.

The fact I'm not getting a PS3 makes it even less of a deal.

Can somone post the list for those of us behind work filters? Thanks.

Big list:

The ever inquisitive and (helpful) folks over at NeoGAF has a hot thread listing all known backwards compatibility issues with the PS3. What issues you say? Well take this short "preview" list as an example:

Valkyrie Profile - Silmeria: When playing FMV - sound problems.

Valkyrie Profile: BGM and SFX problems

Sakura Taisen I remake: Title animation freezes

Super Robot Wars Alpha Gaiden: Voice play-back problems in game.

Minna-no-Golf4 (hotshot golf): Delayed button press recognition

Final Fantasy XI: no BC for HDD titles as of yet.

The very first post on the thread cites a page as a general resource for checking the backwards compatibility status of games. It's in Japanese so you might want to run it through. Now now folks, don't go up in arms just yet. Even the PS2 wasn't fully backwards compatible right from the start. Also, a lot of the backwards compatibility issues with the PS3 are reportedly going to be handled via firmware updates. So all of these will be fixed in due time.

The list is continuously growing, such is the nature of forum threads, the tricky part here is that a lot of people are checking the games they're personally concerned about and are posting the games BC status even if there's an issue or not. So going through a thread that will likely grow might be a hassle for you guys.

Personally this QJ blogger is glad to find out that Kingdom Hearts 2, Zone of the Enders, ICO, Katamari Damashi, and the entire Guilty Gear series have no compatibility issues. W00t! We'll do our best here at QJ to update this post with notes on which games DO have BC problems.

Here's a list we got from the forum thread:

Another hot topic in the thread is whether the PS3's awesome hardware will be able to provide some enhancements on the games for the earlier platforms. What do you think?

EDIT: snap.
