Re: Can you play ps2 games on ps3?

Aug 31, 2011

Good thing I already have MGS1. But still, Idk if I want to buy the collection. I'm getting Snake Eater for my 3DS when it comes out, and I already own Peace Walker, so the only game I get is MGS2, which I can still play.

Actually in this collection you also get the original Metal Gear and Metal Gear 2, as they were originally presented on the original MSX format. So actually you get 5 canonical Metal Gear games in this collection, except for MGS1 which (like I said before) I expect will be offered as a preorder bonus...

Depends on if it has the backwards compatible stuff, I think.

I know when I bought mine, I bought one that said it was "backwards compatbile". I've even played playstation one games on it before. It saves right in the ps3 like a normal game.

Buuut, judging by the three pages of replies, you already know your answer! c:

My only hope for this is that you can save at any point. Like you could save at any point in the Sonic's Ultimate Genesis collection for all the games.

That would be nice, but I have a feeling it will be a straight port of the MSX versions...

This works for most models...go into the playstation store...click add-ons...choose disc-based addons...look in the P section...find "PS2 System Data"...download it. congrats yuhr ps3 can now play most ps2 disc games!!!

Wow, that is just so wrong.

It does not work for most models. It works for the 20GB, the 60GB, and the 4 USB port 80GB.  And please note that those are systems that ALREADY can play PS2 games.  It doesn't add the ability to play PS2 games to any system.


Wow. lol

That's nice. All of my systems play PS2 games as well.

All PS3's play PS1 games.

Here are the models that play PS2 games through hardware emulation:

CECHAxx (1st Gen 60GB)

CECHBxx (1st Gen 20GB)

Here are the models that play PS2 games through software emulation:

CECHCxx (2nd Gen 60GB)

CECHExx (2nd Gen 80GB)

Here are the models with no PS2 compatibility:

CECHGxx (3rd Gen 40GB)

CECHHxx (3rd Gen 40GB)

CECHJxx (3rd Gen 40GB)

CECHKxx (3rd Gen 80GB)

CECHLxx (3rd Gen 80GB)

CECHMxx (3rd Gen 80GB)

CECHPxx (3rd Gen 160GB)

CECHQxx (3rd Gen 160GB)

CECH-20xxA (1st Gen Slim 120GB)

CECH-21xxA (1st Gen Slim 120GB)

CECH-20xxB (1st Gen Slim 250GB)

CECH-21xxB (1st Gen Slim 250GB)

CECH-25xxA (2nd Gen Slim 160GB)

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.
