So the strengths and weaknesses change, i.e you may find games that run at 60fps on the PS2 run at 20fps under a ps3 emulator. You may also find that games that run at 30fps on the PS2 can still run at 30fps...
But if you didn't automatically assume and know this, then you will never understand anything technical.
This is actually insane, I cannot believe that was a reply to someone who also didn't get the point of my post and now you haven't either...no disrespect but you're a moron.
I have no idea why people are diving into the ins-and-outs of Tekken Tag Tournament as I only gave a random example and is not the fundamentals behind this topic!
Jesus Christ I shall try and say it again what my point is. Step 1: There is NO, I repeat NO software-emulated PS2 backward compatibility on ANY Japanese PS3...please tell me you get that first simple point!
Step 2: With that in context, that means that a Japanese game that runs on a software-emulated PS3 for its PS2 games (ie, ZERO Japanese PS3s) is absolutely pointless! Why? Because unless you have an illegal modification involved such as a Cobra USB dongle that gives owners of software-emulated PS3s region-free functionality, you would never use a Japanese game that is software-emulated because IT HAS NEVER EXISTED IN JAPAN!
Step 3: Bottom line is...what is the point of having a Japanese-only game running perfectly on software-emulated BC PS3s when a softare-emulated BC Japanese PS3 has NEVER been developed!
My God I have no idea why some of you cannot grasp this simple concept and then on top of that you have some Einstein's coming in and talking about specific games...I AM NOT BOTHERED ABOUT THAT IT WAS AN EXAMPLE! My beef was purely with the Japanese-exclusive games running on non-Japanese systems that would never be known without the use of the Cobra dongle.
If someone replies and doesn't understand this on a basic level, then I recommend you go and post in the "high IQ determines if you can post thread" because you need to plead your case.
I know all of this bro but thanks for your reply! My main beef hasn't been with select titles and how they perform, it's why are some games (Japanese-only games) perform on software-emulated BC PS3s when the owners of those consoles would never get anything out of them as the PS3s PS2 emulation is region locked and that a software-emulated BC Japanese PS3 has never been created! It's a contradiction and does not make sense to have Japanese games performing when they've never been needed until now that we have Cobra USB to remove the restrictions placed by Sony in the first place.
