Typically, we don't single out just one aspect of an entire console or gizmo, as it's always a beautiful sight to see a perfectly assembled console do its thang in reverse

features a neatly attached PS2 chipset to make sure that backwards compatibility was all but a minor issue, but even after countless delays and a staggeringly high price point, Europe's unit was hamstringed still. While we'd heard that the late-coming PS3 would sport limited abilities
in the PS2 department, it still made us cringe when those whispers were proved true
, and now its time to witness just how bare this motherboard looks as it uses emulation
to crank up a few (literally) PS2 titles. Grab your tissues, and click on through for a few more shots.
