"System Data" does not alow a PS3 that can't normally play PS2 games the ability to play them. It only allows systems that can already play PS2 games the ability to play games that use a hard drive like Final Fantasy 11...

Only the 20GB, 60GB, and 80GB (all systems that have 4 USB Ports) can play PS2 games.  If your system has only 2 USB ports, it does not have the necessary hardware to play PS2 games.

CECH-25xxB (2nd Gen Slim 320GB)

CECH-30xxB (2nd Gen Slim 320GB)

In order to find the model number look around the box or the console itself.  The "xx" codes are replaced by the region.  Here are the list of all used region codes in PS3 model numbers:

00 = Japan

01 = North America

02 = Australia / New Zealand

03 = United Kingdom / Ireland

04 = Europe / Middle East / Africa

05 = Korea

06 = South-East Asia

07 = Taiwan

08 = Russia / India

11 = Latin America

12 = Hong Kong

(09 and 10 aren't used)

Hope this helps.

There's an easier way to tell visually, the number of USB ports. If the PS3 has 4 front USB ports they're backward compatible.  The current models only have 2 & aren't.

Don't worry about wearing your ps3 laser out buy using ps2 games on it. Just buy a ps2.

Somewhat. The early models of the PS3 had PS2 backwards compatibility, but the later models don't. If you don't have the early models there is only 2 ways to do it, HD collections or the PS2 Classics section of the PlayStation Store

It's true.

The "fat" or earlier model PS3 has backwards capabilities while the new "slim" PS3 does not.  I guess it's a bit of give and take.  The new PS3 runs quieter/cooler than the old one, but loses the ability to play older games.
