There was a bit of confusion over what sort of backwards compatibility the Sony NGP would have when it was announced earlier this year, but it looks like that particular mystery's now been cleared up.

Another year, another chance for Nintendo to deliver what it's alternately denied and teased since day one -- a successor to the Nintendo Wii capable of displaying games in high resolution.

In seemingly stark contrast to Sony, whose backwards compatibility stance is moving, um, backwards, Microsoft keeps chugging right along in adding compatible titles to the 360, today announcing an impending update that will "unlock" a further 84 games. According to Joystiq, there are now a total of...

Well just like the software emulation-only backwards compatibility that has followed the PlayStation 3 out of Europe, so too has the ol' online compat checker crossed the pond to helpfully inform you of the glitches you can expect in your favorite classic titles if you pick up the new 80GB SKU -- ...

Taking a moment away from E3, Major Nelson updated his blog to give the latest information on Xbox 360 backwards compatibility. The whole list of new titles can be found after the break, and you can always go to Xbox's site to get the full list. This would typically be the part where we'd say som...

We're still attempting to confirm what the new red light means on the PS3 controller from Sony*, but what we can confirm is that the new 80GB PS3 will have limited backwards compatibility. Clearly stated on the box, the system has apparently gotten rid of the chip previously used for US backwards ...

As promised, Sony has delivered a complete list of PS1 and PS2 titles compatible with the new Euro-centric PlayStation 3, along with a guide of just how well each game will be emulated.

...Sony wasn't lying. Over at the official backwards compatibility site for the PS3, choosing your country is probably the hardest part. Nearly 1,800 of the 2,400 PS2 games have been deemed backwards compatible with software emulation. Not only that, every PS-One title will work also. If that's not ...

Look, Eragon is great and all, with his pretty boy hair and that whole dragon thing he's got going on, but we wouldn't exactly describe him as ideal representation of a complete Euro-PS3 backwards compatibility list. Unfortunately, that's exactly what the folks at Cynamite found, who nabbed a pre-...

In an "exclusive interview" with "semiofficial" Playstation blog, Threespeech, Sony's Phil Harrison provides some clarity regarding the PAL PS3's range of backwards compatibility, not to mention the opportunity to place even more quotation marks into this paragraph.

Bad news for those European fans who've still been anticipating the PS3 despite delays, higher costs, limited selection, and weak launch stock: the rumors were true this time around, and your 'newly designed' console will be shipping sans PS2 hardware.

We'll admit, we're feeling starting to feel for you folks in Europe, as not only do you now have to actually pay attention to where you're driving, but the PlayStation 3 you were planning on snagging exactly one month from today might be hamstringed right out of the box. According to comments made b...

We're referring to a decreased percentage in the European PlayStation 3's ability in respect to backwards compatibility. How awkward of a sentence was that? Let us explain before the poo gets tossed around. See, the model being released in Europe was designed differently... instead of having a chip ...

Joseph "Talvish" Molnar over at DCEmu gave a good long look at XNA on his personal blog, Microsoft's future with the platform. It touches on how this appeals to the homebrew community as well as how useful the tool set will be as more developers pick it up. It's a good read and sheds some light on t...

After 219 pages of postings to what has become the go-to forum thread in regards to Sony's PS3 jaggies fiasco -- a problem that was hitting certain PS1 and PS2 games with a pixel-flipping ugly stick -- it looks like Sony finally heard the cry of its users and has released a fix to the problem insi...
