    that sucks....

    and seeing that PSX and PS2 games are region locked, i'm guessing the PS3 VC/Live (anyone know what they're gonna call it) will be too (haven't read anything about it yet)

    Just FYI, I hope you realize the PSX was a PS2.

    The oringinal Playstation was called the Play Station X during developement. Many game mags/websites and fans (myself included) refered to the original Playstation as the PSX instead of the PSone. A lot of people either forget about the PSX or never knew about it since it was a Japan only item that didnt do so well.

    Actually, no. The original PlayStation is commonly abbreviated as PSX by all major game media sources, at least in North America.

    Yeah, I know all that but when it came to official Names the first Playstaton is just the PS.

    I still don't know why Sony ever attempted to sell there PSX Home System in Japan though, it would of made alot more sense in the US I think.

    Dang. Ah well, I've got a PSOne and a PS2 that already play anything I want them to, but it would have been nice to have something that would have played them legally.
