European PS3 won't carry chip for PS2

The European PlayStation 3, set to go on sale March 23, won't carry the chip for PlayStation 2 and will instead use special software to play PS2 games, saving costs and making mass production easier by reducing parts

USA Today article 2-28-07 (http://www.usatoday.com/tech/gaming/2007-02-28-europe-ps3-chip_x.htm)

This might filter over to the U.S. market and a price drop could be coming.
