    I played PS3 games for months, was playing GTA4 one day and the next day I wanted to start the game, nothing happens. I try another PS3 game, nothing. I tried a blu-ray movie then it works fine. I tried a PS2 game and it worked fine. I since tried many PS3 games and none works.

      I only had ps3 for 13 months. I didn't play it that much. It will play moves but will not play or reconize ps3 games.  I can not fix it.  What do I do?  Take it somewhere?  But where?

What you need to do is quick format your ps3 drive, after you do that, it will play ps3 games again

How can i get my ps3 to play ps2 games


thats because sony was *** and stopped making ps3's that could read ps2 discs. so in other words you cant. the said "they didnt see it was fit for it to have to play games." a load of **** i say! they were just losing money for having a blueray, dvd, and ps2 reading machine. so they decided to take out ps2 and not dvd? i dont get it cause we can rip dvd's to play as a video file, and then play it from that. sony doesnt think right i dont think, sorry. but you are out of luck

Will not play dvd's or ps2 games


Ps2 Games are not for the ps3.but the older ps3's will play them. With D.V.D.s this maybe a dust issues or the brand of dvd that your burning to. PS3 has less Ram then the Xbox360 but the PS3 has faster Ram. PC Are The Way to go cheap, fast and easy to fix.

My PS3 now will not play PS3 games but still plays PS2 games


You're blu-ray drive has partially died. It's a three part laser (cd, dvd, blu-ray). The most important part of yours has died that's why you can still play dvd and PS2 games because they use the dvd laser and not the blu-ray.

PS3 Guitar Hero


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....
