My ps3 used to be backwards compatible for ps1-ps2 and ps3 now it only plays ps3.why?and how do i get it back?


is it the 60 gb model?? that is the only one that did backwards compatibility. all others dont. if u do have the old 60gb then maybe sony got rid of it on the firmware updates. go on the ps3 website and update an older firmware and see if that works.

I bought my son a ps3 with 120mb memory for xmas after being told that it will also play ps2 games. Now we can't get the ps2 games to work. is a download needed ? or was I lied to by sales person ?


Well sorry to tell you this but the 120 gig ps3 does not have any backwards capabilities whatsoever. There is no downloads to make ps2 games work. Either the sales person bold faced lied to you, or they had no clue what they were selling. Sony only came out with 2 systems that have backwards capabilities, the 60 and 80 gig systems, although they are limited and the 80 requires a download. Sorry for the headache, if I were you I would give that sales person a good piece of my mind.

Can you play PS2 games on a PS3?


If you bought the original PS3 when it first came out and purchased the expensive one with the larger hard drive, it will be able to play *some* PS2 games. If you bought the cheaper one with the smaller hard drive or purchased your PS3 once the prices started dropping, it will have no capabilities of playing PS2 games, as Sony has decided to not continue making the system semi-backwards-compatible.

Does ratchet and clank (number1) work on ps3?


Not unless you have an early model PS3 that was backwards compatible. The newer versions of the Ps3 do not have backwards compatibility. Sorry.

PS3 does not work in 1080p


My ps3 didn't like a HDMI connection very much. I tried the Composite input cables and they worked great with no screen flicker.

Backward Compatibility


Yes. To cut cost Sony offered the 40 GB but the system was not backwards compatible. By upgrading to 60 or 80 GB you will have compatibility. Check www.us.playstation.com to make sure the games you want to be compatible are listed.
