Sony announced today that they will bring Playstation 2 support to the PS3, as part of their “game archives” program, on July 25. 5 games will be initially made available (including one of the Resident evil games, as well as Siren), for prices going between 800 yen and 1500 yen (roughly between 10 and 20 dollars).
The announce also states, in small characters, as if it were an anecdote, that the Playstation Vita will support PS1 classics as part of its 1.80 firmware update, scheduled for “some time in summer” (as was previously announced)
