It seems that Sony forgot to test the systems backward compatibility with PS2 and PS1 games as they do not run correctly on the new gaming console
The new PlayStation 3 game console has problems when playing about 200 software games from previous versions of the machine,

The PS3 should be able to load and run games designed for earlier PlayStation models, but the paper said some sound and screen problems have been reported when these games were played on the new console.

It plans to have the PS3 on shelves in North America on November 17, followed by a European launch in March.
