    Most PS2 games are not compatible with the PS3. This has been done for several reasons; mostly because of the exploitable architecture of the PS2 software. The PS2 titles that actually ARE compatible with PS3 are only compatible with certain unit models. So...

The Playstation (R) 3 has most likely been patched. I find it knocks back not only Action Replay but XPLODER also (The EU version of Gameshark) both for PS2 it is likely that SONY has blocked it out to stop consumers playing region locked dvd movies. So if you in UK you can only play Region 2 PAL dvd's, if you in the us, you can only play Region 1 NTSC dvds. If in AUS, you can only play Region 4 Dvd Disc....etc.... AR Max had a feature to bypass this problem, thus why sony has probably patched against it. As for a solution I am also searching for one, truth be told, I don't think there is one.

You should boot up your codes on your PS2, then the game.
Save your game.
Then copy your save game to your PS3.

Hope this helps.

Does a playstation3 play ps2 games?


A few will work but most won't as the PS2 emulation which was designed into the earliest 60GB units was removed along with a few other features sony had the stupidity to remove. Never mind eh! they are still great fun

Playstation3


only the 60gb ps3 has backwards compatabilty. you may be able to play some of your games but will need to update the firmware through downloads on the playstation website

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.
