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.

I can only play some games on my ps2 i cant play any of the Need for speed games. i tried deleting old saved files dealing with nfs and my system configuration. Still wont work. Any other ideas to get...


If you have the original PlayStation 2 console, there was a problem with it playing some of the newer games released for the ps2 after the slim was released. You can try using a laser lens cleaner to clean the laser, but the original ps2 just simply won't play some games.

How can i put hole games on psp for free with no custum firewire


This is not possible for free, for a low charge you can get alot games from playstation network.

The original Sony firmware also won't run homebrew software, it will only run the games bought from Playstation Network and original UMD's

If you want to play backuped game and homebrew, you still have to flash custom firmware on your psp.

Cannot play copied games in psp's memory stick after updating


Hi Aneeshameeda

I think the best solution is to downgrade your PSP system software to the original version and check if your games load. What might have happened is that the firmware software that was on the PSP was downgraded to play copied games, and now you've changed the firmware to a newer version and that is why your games won't load. You might hac=ve to get your PSP downgraded again to play the games from your memory card.

Playstation 2 problem


I would try cleaning your Playstation games, Check and make sure that the games your trying to play are not cracked in anyway. Also, if you have your system standing vertically lay it down horizontally. Many times after you've closed the disk in it lens to far away from the lens.
