    Can I replace my 40 GB harddrive for a 60Gb or 80 GB harddrive and be able to play the PS2 games?

  • QueenSarah May 11, 2010

    If I install an 80gb will this rectify the situation? Would the part that makes it backward compatible be in the harddrive or the system?

The newer PS3 consoles are not backward compatible with PS2 (for most games)

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.
