Why'd I have to go and sell my PSone?

That's the question that went through my mind as I watched this old PSone ad from Japan yesterday:

I know, I can play all of my PSone games on my PS2 (and my PS3, if I ever buy one), but neither of those systems can hold a candle to the cute-as-buttons PSone mini (as some call it).

I thought they were phasing backwards compatibility out of the PS3 since that download service is upand coming. I heard new PS3s are not going to be backwards compatible. That's capital L-A-M-E lame!

Hm, I know Sony removed PS2 compatibility from PS3s some time ago, but I've never heard anything about them removing PS1 compatibility. It would be weird for them to do that, IMO, because as of now PS1 compatibility is done via software, not hardware, emulation. As long as my PS2 works--or I can get a new one on the cheap--I guess it doesn't matter too much to me, though.
