Euro PS3 gets 1000 PS2 games

At launch, promises Harrison.

Sony's president of worldwide studios Phil Harrison has confirmed that the PlayStation 3 will support over 1000 PS2 titles when it's launched on March 23.

The comments follow the announcement that the next-gen console would only offer backwards compatibility for a 'limited range' of PlayStation 2 titles.

"The situation is changing everyday, but on March 23, we expect the list to include over 1000 PS2 titles," revealed Harrison, in an interview on Sony's semi-official blog ThreeSpeech.
