    I was playing the ps2 game mafia on my ps3 and it freezes on one of the loading screens. I can still quit the game and try to load it on that part again, but it never works, WHAT CAN I DO? My Ps3 games are okay, and so are other ps2 games. This particular game though "Mafia" is ok as it works on other ps3's, just not on mine.

HI surej_amore
Its little late but in order to play ps2 even ps1 games on your ps3, you need to get your bottom to the online store and download the app. After that your in. Hope this heped.

Hey i can't play my ps2 games on ps3 60gb what's wrong?


The 80 gig Sony PS3 supports PS2 gamesthrough software emulation.
The success of this emulation was poor at first, but Sony has improved it with several generations of firmware upgrades.
If you are experiencing difficulties with PS2 emulation, it is recommended that you upgrade to the latest firmware.
The 60GB PAL model also utilizes software emulation

Also some games may not currently be supported, check here:

Hope I could help with your problem

I bought my son a ps3 with 120mb memory for xmas after being told that it will also play ps2 games. Now we can't get the ps2 games to work. is a download needed ? or was I lied to by sales person ?


Well sorry to tell you this but the 120 gig ps3 does not have any backwards capabilities whatsoever. There is no downloads to make ps2 games work. Either the sales person bold faced lied to you, or they had no clue what they were selling. Sony only came out with 2 systems that have backwards capabilities, the 60 and 80 gig systems, although they are limited and the 80 requires a download. Sorry for the headache, if I were you I would give that sales person a good piece of my mind.

PS3 wont play PS2 games!??


some 80 gb ps3's are backwards compatible, some are not.

unfortunately it looks like you have one that isn't.
my suggestion is to look on the back of the unit, underneath the barcode. the serial number will be there, followed by the model number. if you're model is not CECHE01 it is not backwards compatible.

sorry.

PS3 is not reading discs


There is a common problem with the Blue-Ray players in the PS3. There is not anything that i know of that you can do other than have your PS3 worked on

**Warning** If you have the old 80 or 60 gig ps3 that you are able to play PS2 games on and you are trying to go through sony for repair they may just give you a new 80 gig ps3 in which you will not be able to play PS2 games on any more that feature has been taken away

Keep in mind that backwards compatibility is not 100% and no that controller will not work with the PS3...

Sure the other games work just fine but you are using a ps3 controller to play them correct??

Yes it is different. The same goes for trying to get a ps2 controller to work on a ps3, it's not gonna happen.

You need to get GH3 with the ps3 controller in order to rock out on the ps3....

As far as i know if it is a 20 or 60 gig it is just playstation 20 or 60 gigabites. I have heard that the 40 and 80 gig models have been refered to as 2.0. So it would be playststion 3  80 2.0
