3. PlayStation 2 Online with the PS3™
It is possible to play your PlayStation 2 games online with your PLAYSTATION®3, but you must have a PlayStation 2 Network Configuration. You must first create an internal memory card on your PLAYSTATION®3 so you can save the Network Configuration.
This Network Configuration can be made one of two ways and it is suggested you make it with the Network Start-Up Disc that came with your Network Adaptor or your PlayStation 2 depending on the model. You should insert the Network Start-Up Disc into the PLAYSTATION®3 and then follow the directions on screen and save the Network Configuration to the internal memory card.
If you've lost your Network Start-Up Disc, you can use the almost any online game to make a Network Configuration. Go to the online section of the game and then look for a button that says, "Create/Edit Network Configuration". Click that and then follow the instructions on screen. From there you should be able to create and save the Network Configuration to the internal memory card.
You should then be able to connect to the game's servers and go online with your PlayStation 2 game as usual, except while playing it on a PLAYSTATION®3. Please note that bluetooth headsets will not work with the PlayStation 2 games, but USB headsets will work fine. This is because bluetooth was never meant to work with the PlayStation 2, so therefore the developers did not include bluetooth support in their games.Unofficial PLAYSTATION®Network Guide
