I have a brand new 40 gig ps3 not even 2 hours old and it wont play any ps2 games at all.I've been told by several people that i have to download a driver in order to get this to work.Instead of just going on faith i would really like a experts opinion.

actuallly a lot of ps2 games can be played with the HDMI connected. I do it all the time... however yes the 60 gig will not play every ps2 game and there is a whole slew of the 60 gigs that are not backwards compatable at all. check it out on wikipedia's page on the ps3.
I haven't had a problem with any ps2 game yet, and the only ps game that I own that hasn't played on my ps3 is FF8.
Playstation 3s are only backwards compatible to an extent, only some playstation 2 games will work on a playstation 3 you should try some newer playstation 2 games and if they work then its the game if no playstation 2 games work check the internet for some updates for your playstation 3.
the problem with god of war 2 is the ps2 lasers are not capable of reading the dual layer disks. either wait and get a ps3, change the laser - i just bought on for 3 quid on e bay brand new. the lasers are not designed to be played the amount they are played. the laser is designed to play 20 hours a week but as sony found out he avg gamer will clock up up tp 60 hours a week so the lasers are only lasting 1/3rd of the time they should. plus if they put a good laser in the machine u would one buy 1 ps2 and then 1 ps3. i have burned out 3 ps2's so far lol. just forget the game or wait till its put on platinum as these are single layerd disk
