PlayStation 3 and Backwards Compatibility?

Sony 2

So I've been planning on getting an Xbox 360 for a while. I've been selling off old games on Ebay / Glyde / Amazon trade in / etc so it wouldn't feel too painful on the 'ol wallet.So I've been planning on getting an Xbox 360 for a while.

Then the new PS3 drops and I've been going through all my old games and I thought it would be nice to keep some of the PS2 stuff around - but my understanding is that backwards compatibility has been stripped from the PS3? Is there someone in the know who can fill me in on the history of this - is there some older revision that can do b.c. or did they strip it completely in firmware? Is there any reason why I would get a PS3 over an Xbox 360?

Any info or random musings on the subject would be appreciated.

....the newer version are screwy with PS2 games. I'll keep my PS2 until they pry it from my cold dead hands ;-)
