I ahve this same problem and from what I have found is that if it is a newer playstation 3 they nolonger come equiped to play PS2&PS1 games. Sony got rid of that capability because it was cheaper to manufacture them with out it. I must say myself I am not too happy! Hope this helps.

    it means that if your ps3 is PAL(europe) it can only play ps1&ps2 games in PAL region only,same as if its NTSC/UC (US).

My PS3 can't only PS2 games!!! 80028F17


Not all PS3s are able to play PS2 games - they started removing that functionality when they came out with the 60GB model. So if you have a relatively new PS3 (A year old or so), that's likely the reason.

My ps3 wont run ps2 games


The reason why ur ps3 40gb wont run ps2 games is because its only a 40gb. If u had a 80gb ps3 then u could play ps2 games.

PS3 80gb from Singapore will not play ps2 games Wrong region displayed


I,m pretty sure that the region settings on PS3s are factory set.
Your only option is to buy japanese games, or NTSJ.
I,d try to re-sell it back to someone in Singapore or Japan, and buy a UK Version.
