PS2 games not working on 80G Platstation 3

I just bought my 80G Playstation 3 so I would not have to give up my PS2 games. The PS3 games I have work great, but all my PS2 games either wont work at all, or will lock up, or lose sound. What can i do to correct this?

    No PS2 games will work on our 80G PS3. PS1 games will work, but when you put in a PS2 game, it says it is unsupported data and when you hit the button it says that we cannot play PS2 games on our version of the PS3. I KNOW it is an 80G, we have two 40G hard drives inside that came in the console. Why can I not play the PS2 games in my 80G? We have put in every single PS2 game we own, and it comes up the same for all of them. I KNOW that Burnout 3 is on the list to be compatible (it's the only one I have checked about). Did we end up with some weird release of the 80G that is NOT backwards compatible at all?

Though the ps3 80g is backwards compatible,it does not play back all ps2 games. go to sony's website,i believe they have a list of games that are,and are not compatible.also make sure your ps3 has all the latest software updates.if you have it hooked to the internet im sure it does

Go find the box and read on the side, try not to get too upset and launch the box at the dog. The new Sony PLAYSTATION 3 80GB (nor any other model) are backwards compatible. The PLAYSTATION 2 is still a big selling point for Sony, and most people buying a PS3 already own a PS2, therefor, if you buy one product from them that plays something that another top product is meant for, then you will sell it, losing them business. Sure, it might ****, but at-least the price dropped, and why get a PS3 if you're not finished with the predecessor first?

I have a PS3 80g. No warranty. Trying to repair myself. The disc drive wont take in discs. So I think I just need to replace the drive. But I need one that will be backwards compatible. I'm not sure how to...


http://www.llamma.com/PS3/ this site should provide some of the information you need. however, for a PS3 to be back compatable, it has to have had a PS2 built into it. changing the drive may not give it back compatability.

PS3 80g only plays DVDs and PS2 games .... help


The reason why DVDS still work and the blu-rays don't is because it's a three part laser. dvd / cd / blu-ray.

The blu-ray portion almost always goes out first.

Playing ps2 games on ps3


The new ps3's won't play ps2 games. the only ones I know of are the ones that came out when ps3 first came out. you will have to go to the following website http://www.us.playstation.com
there they will give you a list of models that will possibly be compatible with ps2 games. i bought the Ps3 with the same idea in mind. The sales clerk even said thay would play ps2 games. Because his does. But he got one of the first ps3's that ever hit the market also. the ps3 will play some ps1 games. There is no patch for it. so you may have to leep your ps2 system after all. i had to.

GENERAL QUESTION FOR PLAYSTATION 3 40G VRS 60 OR 80G....


No the ps3 is compatible for ps2 games NOT ALL OF THEM!
The only difference is the special editions like the spiderman one the mgs special edition ect... OR if you have a 20gb ps3 it does not have internal net or the 1080i feature!

A new hard drive and 15 minutes and you can update your ps3 to 120gb 250gb and so on!
