PS3 1.5 firmware beats those backwards compatibility blues


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 inside the firmware 1.5 update. Oddly enough, Sony still hasn't really copped to the problem, or even mentioned the fix in its 1.5 changelog, but reports of the fix are widespread, and we won't look a gift horse in the mouth. Joystiq notes that the fix does not include upscaling of PS1 or PS2 games, a much-desired feature for the HD-friendly PS3, but we'll take what we can get for now.
