There are 4 generations of PS3's.

The first two were fat and had all the SD card, etc. slots and are fully backwards compatable.

The 3ed generation was fat and does not have the slots or backwards compatability.

The 4th generation is the slim. No slots or backwards compatability.

If you are not sure which version you have, look at the model number and look up the specs online.

 

The first 2 generations were basically the same but however the 2nd generation's only diffrence from the 1st generation was the PS2 playback partially software emulated instead of hardware.

 

Only the 1st 80GB (4 USB ports) and the 2nd 60GB (only in Europe) were considered the 2nd generation.

Since the originals are prone to YLOD, if you have a working ps2 I would use that instead.

Non-slims with 4 USB ports can play PS2 software. Non-slims with 2 USB ports and all slim PS3 models have that support removed and cannot play PS2 software.

Have you actually tried this? Probably not because that is not what "PS2 System Data" is for, it only allows PS3 systems that can already play PS2 games the ability to play PS2 games that use the HD like Final Fantasy 11.

Stop spreading false information

You can always play PS2 on your PC....which is kind of sad. But no, not on the PS3.

A voucher to download Peace Walker for the PSP will be included with the Metal Gear Soldi HD collection, so you can instantly transfarr, if you own a PSP. MGS1 will not be included in the collection coming to the US, but I suspect it may be offered as a pre-order bonus...
