    Still trying to find a full translated spec sheet somewhere, but it appears that these are the only differences.

    Yeah, especially since you can shove your own HDD in there, and people called MS' Elite a rush answer to the PS3.

    It's basically a slight spec bump for South Korea on the HD, which makes a kind of sense; South Korea has a lot more broadband and a lot more third party downloadable content so it's a good place to launch the slight spec bump. That and it gives the South Koreans warm fuzzies about buying the local edition of the PS3.

    Oh and SiM, the PS2 emotion engine chippery was removed in the PAL PS3 already and that plays plenty of PS2 games... it's not a removal of PS2 compatibility.

    What I really meant, was the removal of compatibility for about 40% of PS2 games. If it doesn't play 100% of PS2 games, it ain't PS2 compatible in my books

    Maybe someone can make a PS2 emulator for linux and do a better job than Sony (but first linux needs to be fully hacked so it can use all the hardware)
