So after looking at the PS3 store there is no download available I googled the term "upgrade my PS3 to play PS2 games" and found a chart on sonys website buried iwthin its knoledge center and the backwards compatible models are only certain ones: 20,60,80 Gig (Be careful not all 80 gigs are backwards compatible). The site is here: http://playstation.custhelp.com/cgi-bin/playstation.cfg/php/enduser/std_adp.php?p_faqid=232&p_sid=K6vQ2Qtj

The lesson not just HD size but model number.I currently have a 40 gig and so I'm not backwards compatible. Time to trade it in for a 60 or 80...

Well you need to go to playstations website and see if your console is compatible because only the most expensive ps3 had that ability

please try:
  • Reinstalling all your game data files
  • Reupdating your system firmware via USB Device (download the update from Playstation Website)

Ps2 action replay wont work on 60gb ps3


The Playstation (R) 3 has most likely been patched. I find it knocks back not only Action Replay but XPLODER also (The EU version of Gameshark) both for PS2 it is likely that SONY has blocked it out to stop consumers playing region locked dvd movies. So if you in UK you can only play Region 2 PAL dvd's, if you in the us, you can only play Region 1 NTSC dvds. If in AUS, you can only play Region 4 Dvd Disc....etc.... AR Max had a feature to bypass this problem, thus why sony has probably patched against it. As for a solution I am also searching for one, truth be told, I don't think there is one.

You should boot up your codes on your PS2, then the game.
Save your game.
Then copy your save game to your PS3.

Hope this helps.
