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

else, contact the support centre for possible hardware issues checking . it can be, unfortunatelly, a problem with your bd reader, and you will need to buy a new one if the system is not covered by warranty =/

Why can play my game on playstation3 from playstation 2 what do i need


The only PS3's that have backwards compatiblity were the first 60GB models, and some 80GB's that are no longer in production. You can still find them on Ebay and Amazon.

The 60GB actually has the ps2 hardware in it allowing for 98% BC, however the 80GB that is no longer in production used software to emulate ps2 playback.

This has cuase alot of people to be dissapointed with sony, however, in 2 or so years most people won't want to play ps2 games anyways, so it really doesn't matter.
