PS2 Emulation Coming To PS3 Very Soon

•August 5, 2009 • Leave a Comment

As of this time the information may turn up to be a rumor but somehow I highly doubt it. With the recent news that PS3 Slim may turn up any day now this leak seems all the more likely to actually be the real thing. Are we just weeks away from having backwards compatibility once again?

As of right now the PS3 is unable to run PS2 games there is no built-in PS2 Emotion Engine CPU.  However it seems like the smart people at Sony have finally figured out a way to make all of this work.  By running what in a recent patent calls “The PS3 Cell CPU Sim EE”, which basically equates to soft simulation of the PS2.

Will Sony finally bring PS2 emulation to the PS3? Only time will tell.  In my opinion it is a no brain-er. With all the rumors swirling around the PS3 it seems as if the cat may finally be out of the bag.

A Walmart in the state of Florida has sold a White Dual Shock 3 controller before they were supposed to, which pretty much confirmed suspicions of Sony’s plans to announce the release of the white Dual Shock 3 for the U.S. at this year’s E3.

A quick call to the store listed on the receipt confirmed that the store indeed has the controllers in stock, but has stopped selling them.

Rumor has it that the next Call of Duty (which could be considered Call of Duty 5 or 7 depending on how you look at) will take place in a Vietnam setting. However as of this time there is no conformation or denial of the rumor.

call-of-duty-modern-warfare-2-20090326051750466The first details of the next installment in the Call of Duty: Modern Warfare series have emerged via Game Informer Magazine.

The game will have players fill the role of a new recruit who is out to combat raging global terrorism. The game will feature a longer single player campaign that will be a bit more open ended. Also players will have the option to engage in stealth tactics.

The game will run at a smooth 60fps and feature a new live patch system which will no longer require players to download the patches through their systems menu.

New features will include movable turrets, and customized weapons for single player mode. Also heavily scripted sequences from the first game will be gone, which will eliminate the ridiculous infinite enemy re-spawn sections from Modern Warfare that required players to move up to a certain point in the level before enemies would stop re-spawning.

One of the most exciting details that has emerged would be increased player maneuverability. Players will now be able to swim, scale ledges, and use snowmobiles in some form or another for escape.

Once again gamers will be sad to know that there will be no campaign Co-Op, however there will be additional Co-Op Missions featured in “Special Forces” mode.
