Re: PS3

Also, be sure to update your ps3 with the latest software update (currently, at this time, it is version 1.90). This will make your PS1 and PS2 games looked vastly improved over how they look on the ps3 without the updated drivers. I have included the link to their website so you can view for yourself what the newest drivers add (better DVD viewing, wireless keyboard support, adjusting screen display settings while in the middle of playing a PS1 or PS2 game...just to name a few).

Re: PS3

Ps3 supports over 1000 ps1 and ps2 titles. Make sure you hook your ps3 up to the internet and download the latest firmware updates. Odds are your system will be able to play all or most of your ps2 games once you update the ps3 online.

Can't play any ps2 games nor watch netflix . how and where can I upgrade?

You can try updating by connecting your PS3 to the internet and selecting SETTINGS > SYSTEM UPDATE. If your PS3 is not connected to the internet, you can manually download the update here.You can place this file onto a USB drive to update. Create a folder called PS3 in the drive, then a folder called UPDATE inside that one, place the downloaded file there and insert the drive into your PS3. More info can be found here.

I bought my son a ps3 with 120mb memory for xmas after being told that it will also play ps2 games. Now we can't get the ps2 games to work. is a download needed ? or was I lied to by sales person ?

Well sorry to tell you this but the 120 gig ps3 does not have any backwards capabilities whatsoever. There is no downloads to make ps2 games work. Either the sales person bold faced lied to you, or they had no clue what they were selling. Sony only came out with 2 systems that have backwards capabilities, the 60 and 80 gig systems, although they are limited and the 80 requires a download. Sorry for the headache, if I were you I would give that sales person a good piece of my mind.

Can a ps2 play ps3 games

Some models can, the 60 GB model can play all PS2 games, the 80 GB can play pretty much all PS2 games, the lower end ones (I think the 20 and 40 GB can not play PS2 games). There is a rumor however that ALL PS3's will soon be able to play PS2 games with a software update.. that will not be available until a few months into the future, if ever.

Ps3 wont play ps2

you need to check how many gigabytes you have left in memory because every ps2 game you use has to make its own folder in the ps3 which each one uses alot of the memory so if you play alot of differnt games and are in the middle of saved games for ex. final fantasy they use lot of memory so check that and a easy way is to delete some of your non used things like pictures or demos you downloaded from th internet and things like those
