Actually, that's not entirely correct. There are two three of PS3 that were capable of playing PS2 games. The two launch models (20GB and 60GB) had hardware support for PS2 games, which means they basically had a PS2 inside them to run PS2 games. Sony has stopped making both of those models, so the only way you can get one is by getting a used one from eBay or some other source. There was an 80GB model that Sony made for a time that had software compatibility with PS2 games, but that didn't work as well as the 20GB/60GB models, and Sony has stopped making those as well. So again, used is your only solution.

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.

What ps2 games can be played on the ps3


The newer versions of the ps3 are not ps2 compatible..if you had 4 hook ups, then you would have the 'reversible' version. So long story short...no, you may not play ps2 games on your system. hope this helps, i know it sucks.... I was disappointed as well... please rate me... thanks a lot.

New game won't play.


the problem with god of war 2 is the ps2 lasers are not capable of reading the dual layer disks. either wait and get a ps3, change the laser - i just bought on for 3 quid on e bay brand new. the lasers are not designed to be played the amount they are played. the laser is designed to play 20 hours a week but as sony found out he avg gamer will clock up up tp 60 hours a week so the lasers are only lasting 1/3rd of the time they should. plus if they put a good laser in the machine u would one buy 1 ps2 and then 1 ps3. i have burned out 3 ps2's so far lol. just forget the game or wait till its put on platinum as these are single layerd disk
