A Step Forward for Stepping Back

Sony released the 1.5 firmware update for the PS3 today, which should make anyone who owns games for prior Playstation consoles positively giddy. Well, maybe not giddy, but placated at least. Why? Before 1.5's release, the PS3's backwards compatibility with PS2/Playstation games was painful at best, due to purely abysmal graphics. See for yourself here (video courtesy of; PG):

Glad they got that problem knocked out. Well, that's one less reason for not buying a PS3. I can still think of about six hundred more though...but that's me.
