Does the PS3 80gb play PS2 Games?

25 replies 1905 views Edited Oct 2, 2008
I have heard that the PS3 80gb doesn't play the PS2 games... is this true?  If it doesn't do any of them... I don't care if I can play them online or not but just play them at all.  Just curious before I buy                          THANKS

Yup, the new 80GB one does not, the only 80GB's that do are the Motorstorm bundle and the Metal Gear Solid 4 bundle.

The only one on shelves is the new 'Core' 80GB, currently.  If you happen to find one that is the MGS4 bundle, that one will play PS2 games.

If you can somehow find a 80 bundled with MGS4 it is the last ps3 to come out with Backwards Compatablitity, but all of the new 80s do not have it, so no you will not be able to play PS2 games.

Those are the only two 80GB PlayStation 3s that include backwards compatibility.

 

 

 

Those also have backwards compatibility. Sorry it seems so unprofessional to just post pictures but people otherwise don't know what has backwards compatibility.
