I feel like you're playing semantics games here? PS2 had a chip that mimicked the PS1's hardware to allow BC. PS3 had a chip that mimicked the PS2's hardware to allow BC (before it was removed and reverted to a software emulator in later PS3 models). Thus hardware emulation.No. Native support. It wasn't hardware emulation
I find it unlikely from a legal standpoint that if Sony is able allow BC on their hardware solutions that they wouldn't be able to do the same with software emulators.
