Playing ps2 on my ps3 slimline

6 replies 69 views Edited Aug 7, 2011

Hi,

I'm aware there is a PS2 System Data which is downloadable from the PSN Store. I believe it can be found by

Selecting "Add-ons" and "Disk Based Add-ons" to bring up the PS3 system add-ons.

My problem is that when I sign into PSN Store I don't have and option for Add-ons.

Has the Add-ons been removed or changed to something else? Where can I find the PS2 System Data for the

PS3?

Any assistance would be greatly appricated.

Thanks

Unless you have a launch ps3 from 2006-2007 with the ps2 emulator software, the ps3 can not play ps2 games.  Downloading that file will not allow you to play ps2 games....I think it even says so in the description for it.

Right, the PS2 Data on the PSN Store is not for your system.  It is only for those systems that already play PS2 games.  It enables some PS2 games to install data to the PS3 HDD as if it were the PS2 HDD.

Very few games support it, and it does not add PS2 BC to your system, it expands on the capabilities of a system that already has PS2 BC.

Your system cannot play PS2 games; there is nothing on the PSN Store to enable it.

Is there any way to get play ps2 games on my system? Has the download store allowed or reconfigured ps2 games to play on the ps3?

I do not believe they have put any PS2 games on the PSN Store.

You'll have to settle for such things as remastered PS2 games.  They are basically no longer PS2 games, just the titles have been remade for PS3.

Sadly not really, there are some ps2 games that have been re-issued to play on the ps3 but they are rare, mostly you'll find ps1 games for download on the store that are playable on the ps3.
