The Solution #1 posted was partially correct. Sony Playstation 3 when they first came out had a firmware chip that allowed the Playstation 3 systems to play Playstation 2 games. Sony had discontinued the hardware "chip" for a software based chip instead. You will need to read the disclaimer on the Playstation 3 box to see if it will play some Playstation 2 games.

My playstation 3 crashed on cod mw2 and now wont play games


first call would be to sony, this is a common sign that the blu-ray disc reade ris knackered. i know it still plays dvd's and cd's but so did mine when the reader went on it. word of warning if sony send out an engineer to take your playstation away for repair remove the hardrive as they wipe them before returning it to you, and nothing worse than losing all of your saved data and profile info.

The playstation 3 plays dvd's but not games it does not load them up at all.


1 Discs that are not compatible with the system cannot be played. 2 Games that can be played on this system have to be on PLAYSTATION3 format software. Playstations format software canbe played but may not perform correctly. Please check if the games you wish to play are on this format. 3 Please check if the data for PS3 format software is saved on the system's hard disk. The data is displayed under Game - Saved data utility
