Getting PS2 Games to work on PS3

21 replies 3062 views Edited Oct 22, 2007
Hi all, I am hoping that someone can help. I am trying to play a PS2 game on my PS3, however, it says that it's not compatible. How do I go about making my PS3 compatible to play these PS2 games as I am led believe that there is a way round this. The game is Rugby 2006 from EA. Pro Evo 6 works fine....

If You got the 40gig, it wont be possible (Should say on the back of the PS3 Box), if you got the 80gig it supposed to be done by firmware updates. But to let you know not all games will work on the system since it is a emulation it no longer has a bulit in EE chip which is of course the PS2 chip. But then it doesn't me it will never work at all you would just have to hope they add it to the next firmware update.

On the PlayStatin Store there is PS2 system data that you will need to download

Just wait for some firmware updates to come to address these.

Only fat PS3s that have 4 USB ports on the front can play PS2 retail games...

Wrong. That System Data download enables PS3s that ALREADY HAVE BACKWARDS COMPATIBILITY, to use the PS3's hdd for PS2 games that use the hdd, such as Final Fantasy 11....

 

IT DOES NOT ENABLE BACKWARDS COMPATIBILITY.

If you bothered to read the description, it clearly mentions that

 

If that were true, people would not continue beg Sony for B/C.

Furiously Chaosing
