Sony has decided to remove the Emotion Engine and Graphics Synthesizer from the European version of the PS3.

They admit that it:

has a "slightly detrimental effect" on compatibility

Lovely, ain't it?

While I am not sure if they will get all PS2 games to work through software emulation, there is at least some promising news for Europe in that they will have at least 1,000+ titles compatible at launch.

In the news today,

"Sony's Phil Harrison, president of worldwide studios, recently spoke with semi-official Sony blog Three Speech and expanded upon the question of "why?" More importantly, however, he confirmed they're aiming to have roughly 1,000 PlayStation 2 titles backwards compatible via software emulation by the hardware's launch on March 23rd. More updates via firmware are promised, but at what frequency? We'll have to see."
