are you sure they weren't ps1 games? All playstations 3s, including the slim, can play ps1 games.

if this is correct I will be trading in this 120gb slim for the 250gb with backwards compatibility.

on a side note the Manager at the local gamestop in forney, said that sony did away with it and will not bring backwards compatibility back because they are losing money on games. The ps2 games were outselling the ps3 games.
