PS2 Classics won't work

11 replies 626 views Edited Dec 23, 2012

I've downloaded 2 PS2 classics games and neither work. Every time I try to start them the screen goes black but never comes back. The controller disconnects as well. I've tried on multiple tvs with HDMI and RGB cables. I've called support numerous times and each time they give me the same solutions they gave me the time before that never worked. The two games I've downloaded are Persona 3 FES and Harvest Moon A Wonderful Life Special Edition. I've looked online and other people seem to have the same problem with their PS2 classics so could this be an issue because of the PS Store update from last month? Anyone have any idea how to fix this?

I have purchased GTA San Andreas and Max Payne PS2 Classics and have had no issues. The controller disconnect is normal. I pretty sure the store update isn't the problem.

Go back on the store search for PS2 System Data download and install and try again.

Post back if it works.

That's the first time I've been given that solution but unfortunately it didn't work. Should I try deleting and redownloading the games?

Did you create the PS2 memory card on the PS3 hard drive yet?

You need it to play.

Thats 100% wrong. 

PS2 classics are virtually emulated and contain a built in card. Thats def not the issue.
