PS3: saved PS2 games require adapter

Clearly, dear reader, this is a subject that raises your passions, but at the risk of incurring further reader wrath, here it goes.

This is from PlayStation.com:

"How do I save my PlayStation 2 Memory card information to PlayStation 3?

To use saved data on a PlayStation 2 memory card, you must copy the data onto a virtual memory card within the hard disk. This requires a PS2/PSone memory card adaptor to copy the data to your PLAYSTATION 3. A memory card adaptor is designed to edit, up/download game saves to and from EMS flash card or smart media card."

So, on the one hand, problem solved. On the other, it will require a further piece of kit. Will this be free? Or is this set to further inflame the debate about the affordability - or lack thereof - of the Sony's upcoming games console? Watch this space.
