If it's crap ... We'll tell you
im saving up for a ps3 and im gonna sell my ps2 unless it doesnt play all ps2 and ps1 games that are on disk please tell me i dont want to get my self in a position were i cant play medal of honor frontline or the oringinal twisted metal
only the very first run PS3s have backward compatibility
It can play all PS1 games.
PS2 games, you're SOL.
If I'm not mistaken, the 20, 60, and 80 gigs play PS2 games. As for PS1, all PS3's play PS1 games.
only certain 80 GB ps3's play ps2 games you need to look at the model number
If you go to game stop don't believe them when they tell you you can't save old games you can make a virtual memory card on ps3's And the 20 GB ps3's don't have wi-fi if that makes a difference
The first generation ps3's (which I proudly still claim and will never ever let go off till they pry it out of my dead hands) play ps1 and ps2 games because I've been playing chrono cross and Persona 4 on them but I've heard that the new editions do not come with this feature.
By now PSX and PS2 emulators are pretty solid in their compatibility. Not being able to play X title on your PS3 should not be an issue. Just use an emulator....
i suggest eBay if you want a backwards compatible ps3. but you risk getting screwed.
