My ps2 wont log onto my internet past checking the dnsa?


From memory of sons PS3 but should be similar in ps2---In set up--- check IP address settings are on auto make sure you have the right WIFI network -type indicated,.... and above all make sure your WIFI signal is in range and you have a good signal when setting up.....The problem I had with sons PS3 was similar nothing indicated that the signal wasn't good enough...i did everything i could think of including putting static ip addresses---nothing worked...to cut the story short, it turned out that the wifi which should have been in range wasn't good enough... accidentally got a connection in auto a couple of times which bombed out quickly...But---after replacing wifi with a better range unit and updating broadband all such problems disappeared

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...

Game does not display message indicates format not supported


if your trying to play a ps2 or ps1 game then your ps3 is not backwards compatable so it will only play ps3 games that goes for most ps3's that are 20gb or 40gb cause we have 2 ps3s in my house my sons is 40 and mines is 80gb and his wont play ps2 games but mines will and thats the reason why.

My PS3 can't only PS2 games!!! 80028F17


Not all PS3s are able to play PS2 games - they started removing that functionality when they came out with the 60GB model. So if you have a relatively new PS3 (A year old or so), that's likely the reason.

PS3 wont play PS2 games!??


some 80 gb ps3's are backwards compatible, some are not.

unfortunately it looks like you have one that isn't.
my suggestion is to look on the back of the unit, underneath the barcode. the serial number will be there, followed by the model number. if you're model is not CECHE01 it is not backwards compatible.

sorry.

What ps2 games can be played on the ps3


The newer versions of the ps3 are not ps2 compatible..if you had 4 hook ups, then you would have the 'reversible' version. So long story short...no, you may not play ps2 games on your system. hope this helps, i know it sucks.... I was disappointed as well... please rate me... thanks a lot.

PS3 80gb from Singapore will not play ps2 games Wrong region displayed


I,m pretty sure that the region settings on PS3s are factory set.
Your only option is to buy japanese games, or NTSJ.
I,d try to re-sell it back to someone in Singapore or Japan, and buy a UK Version.
