I believe that the 40gig model of the PS3 is not backwards compatible

the only 2 models of the PS3 that are

60gig
80gig

which are no longer available to buy

Backwards compatability


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.

Ps3 reverse compatibility


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.

PS3- PS2 Games


I was told today you have to buy the 80gig, the 40 gig won't play the ps2 games. That's why we opted for the more expensive one...

New game won't play.


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
