While that's a "rumor" page, the controller thing has been pretty much confirmed, and the backwards compatiblity feature looks almost certain...that is, if you have the optional hard drive. Still, this puts me a little more firmly behind the 360, regardless of the stupid name. Lack of XBox compatibility was a sticking point for me.

I love the fact that the controllers will work with a PC, though. As long as the controllers are fairly well designed, it means I can finally retire my 7-year-old Sidewinder pad.

Now Sony's pretty much got to make PlayStation 3 backward-compatible, or risk some PS2 players moving over to the X-Box side. Particularly since a lot of the old PS2s are ceasing to work properly.

On the other hand, with the recent news that the Blu-Ray and HD-DVD camps are trying to settle on a compromise, that can't help but be good news for those looking forward to the PS3.

Socom is awesome! I just bought it Saturday night and its already one of my favorite PS2 games. I picked up the Network Adapter, too, and I've been having fun playing it online. Anybody else have it?
