Question about Sony Playstation 3 (PS3) Console

1 Answer

Flashing red light 60gb system

I am beside myself. I have stayed true to Sony since PS1. Got PS2 On the release date. Same with my PS3 (within a month of release). Never had any issues. NOW THIS! my beloved PS3 has died and Sony wants $149 site unseen after I have spent thousands ON THIER PRODUCTS? You mentioned about getting them to replace for free! please send me mor info if you can. Please write me at andy@preferredtool.com. I appreciate any advise you can give me.
Thank you in advance.
Andy

I also, have been very loyal to Sony and I also have had all 3 systems. Unfortuantly, Sony will only replace the unit for free if it's under a year old.
Here is a link that has a TON of info about the unit.

Fully backwards compatible ps3 shuts down with 3 beeps and flashing red light when trying to play ps1 games


Hmmmnnn, consider the reason they pulled the rev compatible system off the market. It is possible to be getting the symptoms of YLOD without it actually happening with some games. The older games spun faster(sometimes) and made the system work harder. It could be heating up and shutting down right at the point of failure. I've seen 2 different revers compatible systems YLOD the same way. Good luck.

Will PS1 , PS2, Video Games Play on a PS3 ?? If Yes what type of gb?


In 60gb, I think. But if I remember right, you can buy an add-on to any PS3 model to play PS2 games. EVERY PS3 model does play PS1 games though.

60GB PS3 will play PS1 and PS3 games but not PS2.


this is a problem with some ps3's especialy the high GB ones like mine. they made it so most if not all of the ps2 games cannot be played to cut down on price and to leave room for all the memory. so you can still play ps1's but you cant play ps2's. sorry

My ps3 won't let me play ps2 games. is there anything that can be done?


Unfortunately, no. Sony built the PS3 to only play PS3 games, so no backwards compatibility. Maybe in the future though, they might release an update.
