A few will work but most won't as the PS2 emulation which was designed into the earliest 60GB units was removed along with a few other features sony had the stupidity to remove. Never mind eh! they are still great fun

My ps3 will no longer play ps3 games


If you are able to play Playstation 2 games, but not PS3 games then that means the blu ray laser has went bad. The lasers are a 2 part laser, The PS2 games take a lot less power to read than the blu ray or PS3 games, that is why you can still play PS2 games but not PS3s.
The lasers are a little bit pricy for these units, $60-$80 depending on which model laser is in your unit.
I recommend that you have a professional install the new laser in your unit because of the sensitive nature of the internal electronics.
One thing you don't want to do is damage the original blu ray drive mother board, the blu ray drive has Firmware on it that has to match the motherboard of the Ps3 unit or it will not play anything at all.
If you want me to replace the laser for you I can do that, just contact me and we can talk about it

How do I play PS2 games on my PS3?


Hi there, it all depends which model you have as to wether or not it will be able to play PS2 games. This website -

http://www.edepot.com/playstation3.html

gives a lot of information about the PS3 and what it is capable of. There is a grid on that webpage that will give you model numbers which are compatible with PS2 games.

Hope this helps

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.
