PAL PS3 will be compatible with over 1000 PS2 games at launch

It's common knowledge by now that the PS3 that's going to ship to PAL territories on March 23rd does not have the PS2 processor in it. This was, until now, expected to seriously reduce the compatiblity of the PS3 with PS2 games. Fortunately, the reduction of PS2 game compatibility is nowhere near as bad as most of us probably thought it would be. The PAL PS3 will be compatible with over 1000 PS2 titles on launch day, and will gain more compatibility as time goes on.Source: 1Up

1000?????. I make my point. Until a good rough figure can be put on just how many PS2 games are on the market and compare it to that "over 1000" figure, theres still plenty to doubt.

It's true enough, there has to be over 1000 PS2 games, some 100k or more I would bet, counting all the crappy ones.

Either way if you compare it to the other two main rivals, they beat the 360 in backwards like it was a cake walk, and well the Wii wins, because it plays everything the Gamecube had, and it will most likely have the best and easiest download game thingie.
