Will the PS3 be backwards compatible with Genesis?

One of the major selling points for Nintendo's Wii system (at least for retrogamers) is its ability to easily play games from older Nintendo systems. For awhile, it seemed like Sony's PS3 system would counter by offering gamers access to the Sega Genesis/Megadrive lineup. Worthplaying is now reporting that this may not be the case after all, and that Sony is only "considering" this option. Somehow, though, I doubt that playing Sega Genesis titles is very high on the list of things people want to do with their $600 PS3. What do you think? Via Kotaku.

So PS3 may not have Genesis games which will probably all be available on the far cheaper Nintendo Wii?

You're right Matt. As Beethoven wrote in the lyrics to the opening movement of his fifth symphony...
