3 original ps2 games = 3 ps2 games=30$ (plus ps3 lens maintenance for reading ps2 games)
1 cobra dongle = 2016 games=30$ (no ps3 lens maintenance required )
reading earlier posts on this thread seems everyone just have the need to hate something ,in this case a usb dongle ?! keep on hating it
as for me i am going to keep mine till i hear about loading ps2 isos considering that did not become available on ps3 even till now at the end of its Career and ps4 is going to be released
some people already have many original discs that they can't play due to the lack of backwards compatibility. I duno what ps3 model you're using that you can play games "perfectly" but the ps2emu cobra is using is the same one that sony made originally, which means most games shouldn't even boot or if they do they should have lots of graphical glitches. people choose to hate on the cobra because they believe in a free scene, and also because the cobra devs stole most of their code from psgroove and then just found ways to re-enable features that sony already had in there, minus .iso support and +4gb files from external.
