Speaking in Japanese newspaper Ashai Shimbun, SCE boss Ken Kutaragi confirmed that the PlayStation 3 will be fully backwards compatible with PS2 software. However, his slightly ambiguous comments do not fully guarantee compatibility with the PS one: "PS one runs on the PlayStation 2 through emulation rather than actual hardware. PlayStation 3 will offer the same compatibility for PS2 software and the format will continue forever."
