I cannot get Resistance 2 to load on my ps3, I have tried 2 copies and niether of them work. However they work on my sons which is in the same house.


It's likely that the Playstation models are different in the fact that versions were backwards compatible. Meaning that early PS3 models were able to play PS2 games.
BUT that was phased out and now all currently manufactured PS3 models do not play PS2 games.
More detailed info from a Yahoo answers post "The 80GB PS3 is not capable of playing PS2 games. There is one model (the one with the chrome trim) that can play a PS2 emulator, but never an actual disc. The only two made that can play PS2 games are the out of production 20GB and 60GB"
Alternatively, available in the PS store are PS2 games that have been remastered to play on PS3 through download and others like the God of War series and now ICO have been made available to purchase in disc form.
Hope this helps...

Playing PS2 Games on a PS3 - Check Backwards Compatibility


Not all PS3 consoles have the capability to play PS2 games. Sony have removed PS2 compatibility altogether from the new PS3 slim and the later version PS3s only have limited capability to play PS One games.

This Tip is written to help you determine if your console is backward compatible for PS2 games.

First locate the model number of your PlayStation 3 system by finding the bar code sticker at the back of the console. Underneath the bar code you will see the 11-digit serial number followed by the model number which begins with "CECH".

Models that have PS2 game compatibility are first generation consoles and the versions are 80GB, 60GB and 20GB. These PS2 compatible consoles will all have 4 USB ports which is another useful identifier.

See below for a breakdown of the model numbers that are compatible with running PS2 games;

1) Model No: CECHE01 - These are 80 GB models with 4 USB ports. (Please note 80GB models with 2 USB ports are not compatible).

2) Model No: CECHA01 60 GB models

3) Model No: CECHB01 20 GB models

Another important factor here is the PS2 games themselves.

Even if you have one of these consoles, a PS2 game may run fine on one version say the 60GB but may not work on the 80GB.

If you have identified that you have one of these consoles and want to check if a particular game is compatible with it use the link below. You can enter the exact console you are using - then enter the PS2 game you want to play;
http://www.us.playstation.com/Support/CompatibleStatus

This will give a definitive answer on compatibility between a particular PS2 game you want to play and the actual console you have.

I do hope this Tip has clarified the issues for you.

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.
