    One more thing about the chart. PS3 does in fact works with previous generations, sort of. The original PS3 could run both PSx and PS2 emulating software, but the more recent model (the one I have) only does PSx, presumably because while PS2 is older technology, it is still big enough to be a big compromise. I noticed the PS2 capabilities on the first PS3 played with laggy framerates and longer processing times. PSx emulation on both are just fine. (I still play my FFVII all the time and it works fine). To this day I do not believe the newer model of PS3 can even download an external application in order to play PS2 games, but I may be mistaken.
