I didn't mention it because that console wasn't released in the United States, and I didn't want to confuse anyone

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....
 

Im sorry to be the bearer of bad news but unless you have the first ps3 model or some of the other ones that has the origional design..  you cannot play ps2 games on the ps3..  the ps3s that could still relies on a hardware chip that just isnt present in the slim or even the new slim model...

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

again that file is only intended for ps3s that support ps2 games...  it is needed for games that used the ps2 harddrive..

it does not add the ability to play ps2 games on ps3s that dont support ps2 games

then you obviously dont have the ps3 model you need...  the ps3s that hit the retail market with a 320 gig hard drive was using the slim model...  ps2 game support was gone before the slims came out

its the origional models...  plus some of the later ones...  however at this time they are rare...  best bet to find any of them is auction sites like ebay.com you will not find any of the models in question in retail
