PS3 Game Glitches

To be fair, it's probably just Sony's lack of software expertise that caused this news report rather than the Cell processor, but if Sony are happy to launch a console knowing full well that 200 titles that are supposed to be backwards compatible aren't really working properly, what else haven't they told us?

I'd say it was fair enough, if Sony hadn't already made a big thing about Microsoft's Xbox compatibility on the 360...

You could have just left it at Cell Processor Struggles and you'd have still been fairly spot on........

I concur, but I figured 'Parts of the PS3 Struggle with PSOne Game' didn't cut it as a snappy title with anti-Sony bias compared with the current trend of other snappy titles with anti-Sony bias like:

"PS3 forces us to get our game on in Japanese only"
"Boomerang Controller LIVES!"
"Big Problems for Sony PS3"
"PS3 Fails To Topple 360 Sales"
"Initial PS3 units plagued by software glitch"
"My PS3 Scratched in 3 Seconds"
"PS3 Media Playback: Complicated"
"PS3 May Not Live Up To Expectations"

which are all currently doing the rounds.

To be to absolutely fair, its got practically nothing to do with the Cell processor anyway, backward compatibility is handled elsewhere on the machine.
