I thought playstations are all formated to play any made of equal or lesser p.s. value such as p.s.3. should play p.s.2. games


I believe you're asking about backwards compatibility. While I agree a PS3 should be able to play PS2 games, it's sadly not always the case. While they all can play PS1 games, not every PS3 can play PS2 games. PS2 compatibility depends on the model.

Backwards compatibility with PS2 games has slowly been phased out. The original PS3's had hardware emulation (quite literally there is a PS2 inside of your PS3). The later revisions had software emulation only (PS3 processor pretends to be the PS2 processor), and then none at all. No slim PS3 has backwards compatibility.

Hardware emulation:
20 GB PS3 Fat/Original - Model CECHB01
60 GB PS3 Fat/Original - Model CECHA01

Software emulation:
80 GB PS3 Fat/Original - Model CECHE01

In my personal experience, there's no real difference between software and hardware emulation in terms of actual game play. Software emulation has a few hang-ups on some older games, but overall it works pretty well. And it's infinitely better than not having any ability to play PS2 games at all.

PS3 is backwards compatible with PS2 games, and USED to play them


In Playstation Store, you should download (for free) the PS2 SYSTEM DATA (something like this).
if you have formated your system, the files were erased, and the games won't play until you download the backwards comparibility files again.

How can i get my ps3 to play ps2 games


thats because sony was *** and stopped making ps3's that could read ps2 discs. so in other words you cant. the said "they didnt see it was fit for it to have to play games." a load of **** i say! they were just losing money for having a blueray, dvd, and ps2 reading machine. so they decided to take out ps2 and not dvd? i dont get it cause we can rip dvd's to play as a video file, and then play it from that. sony doesnt think right i dont think, sorry. but you are out of luck
