Old ps3's and backwards compatibility.

4 replies 149 views Edited Aug 3, 2013

I was wondering if anyone knows the difference of the 60 gb model of the ps3 while playing ps2 games vs the 80 gb model while playing ps2 games?

60GB is backwards compatible. 80 is not.

This is how it was (Last i knew)

20GB and 60GB are. 40GB, 80GB and any slim and super slim are only DIGITALLY b/c. Meaning, to play PS2 games on those models, they must be downloaded from the PS2 classics store.

The 80GB PS3s (four USB ports) use partial software emulation for PS2 games, and they are only about 60-70% compatible.

 

The original 60GB PS3s use full hardware emulation for PS2 games and are about 95-97% compatible.

 

80GB PS3s with two USB ports are not backward compatible at all.

Wrong.

The CECHA01(60GB) CECHB01(20GB) and CECHE1(80GB) all are backwards compatible. The only exception is the 80GB which has only one half of the PS2's hardware, while the other is emulated. 

This means the 20 and 60 are about 90-95% compatible with all PS1 and PS2 games, while the 80 has about 85% compatibility.

There is no 100% compatibility, because there are games that exhibit glitches of all sorts. From simple as missing textures, to not being able to get past one part of a game.

Unless you have a MASSIVE library of PS1 or PS2 games, you'll never find the flaws with emulated software. 

For me, MGS1 has an issue with random missing textures. But thats about it with my selection of games.

The other 80GB models: CECHx (K, L, or M) are NOT backwards compatible. It uses the same configuration as the 40GB with a slight variance in motherboard design.
