Playing PS2 games on PS3
  • I have one of the latest 80G PS3 models. Previous models could play PS2 games. Why can the latest model not do this anymore. I have a few PS2 games which I would like to play on my PS3, is there any other way of getting past this.
  • The newer ones won't play them because Sony removed the chipset and software that allowed the backward compatibility. There is no getting around it.
  • That stinks, don't you think!
  • In a way, yes, but at the same time they needed to do something to bring manufacturing costs down and feedback they were getting probably suggested not many were actually using it.
