PS2 game in a PS3 80g

My PS2 game runs slow in my PS3. It does play but it's slow. It speeds up then slows down again. It's mostly slow. I've tried cleaning the game but that didn't help. Any suggestions?
Thank you.

Im trying to play scarface for the ps2 on my original ps3 (60 gig) and the slow down is really bad. its so jerky i cant play any timed missions as the in game timer still runs at normal speed! HELP!


You should check to make sure the disc is in good shape and not covered by any deep scratches or scum. If the disc is shot then there is not much you can do to fix the slowdown sadly, PS2's are currently selling for incredibly low prices so the worst case scenario would set you back around 50 dollars.

My PS2 will play only some DVD movies fine. It does the same with PS2 games. Seems like they have removed something that the older, larger PS2s had that allowed them to read DVDs more deeply and play...


Hi there Mike,

The only possible reason for your problem, since your slimline ps2 is STILL reading them (but just a little slow sometimes), is because the lens could hardly read your discs due to dust build up. Try cleaning it using a disc cleaner and letting it spin for like 30 seconds. If this does not fix the issue, then you may have to MANUALLY clean the lens. Open the cover and once you see the lens, get a clean swab or qtip and damp it in an alcohol and gently wipe the lens in a circular manner. Then let it dry and try to play those discs again.

Please let me know how this goes. Thank you for using FixYa.

Im from manila..can't play a game online...


most games require you have a certain amount of mbps (speed of connection) to prevent lagging. a slow connection may be your problem. if you are using a wireless adapter try actually plugging the ethernet cable into the console. also, have you set up your network options and saved them to a memory card?

My PS2 is not loading Grand Turirsmo 4!


If your PS2 works fine with most of the games and won’t play a few..Then you should try this trick to play them too on your PS2:
  1. Turn on your PS2 without inserting any disc.
  2. Menu screen will appear like:6e4cb56.jpg
  3. Press the (triangle) Button to enter Version Information Menu that looks like9d90dc8.jpg
  4. Highlight the Play Station Driver as above and again press (triangle).
  5. New screen will appear likedd8fb1a.jpg
  6. Highlight the Disc Speed as above and press X button,to enter Disc Speed Menu
  7. And set it from Standard to "Fast".
  8. After you set Disc Speed to Fast, Press and Hold Reset Button to turn off your console.
  9. Then again Press and Hold Reset Button till the Blue Light turns on.
  10. Remove the Reset Button and Press it again.
Be patient and wait till the game loads itself. If your lens is in good condition then it will play game in first go else try again till it PLAY your game. If still your Grand Turismo 4 DVD wont work then you must clean your PS2 lens.Watch following video to learn about cleaning lens:
Thank you and Good Luck!

Tekken 5 slow on PC


To emulate the PS2 takes a lot of system power so your PC might not be strong enough to handle it.

Low 'fps' rate ,when the game runs.....


hey, I have a crappy acer laptop and can play tactical games pretty well but some FMV's have slowed it down increadibly.
I strongly suggest you get the pcsx2 0.9.6 version, check all the speed hacks (see if that doesn't crash your game) you also have the option of using VUSKIP your screen will blink sometimes depending on how much you got going on the screen at once, but you can adjust it using F4 BTW normal limited(i never use) skip and vuskip. I use normal on some FMVs but game play i'll use VU most of the time because my laptop is slow.
Also you can play without sound and check the sound hacks, small speed up.
While PCSX2's new version is much faster, it still slows down quite often and is a huge system resource drainer.
my settings for VUskip 160 custom 70 skip below 3consective render 15 frames skipped. lol

Ps1 games slow on ps2


It's because the CD's that the PS2 is designed to be used for are DVD (discs) these have more complex data on them and thus the low level discs are read with such intensity that they cannot declare all the information on them!

Games run very slow after lightening incident


Lightning can cause weird problems, All you need is "Static Discharge" every capacitor in your PS2. It's not recommended for you to do it by yourself. So a technician help is needed. Good Luck
