Hi,

 

My son would like to play his PS2 games on the PS3 slim, we have looked at you tube and there are videos showing how this can be done by going to the Playstation store and into add on's.   I cannot find this on my PS3 can anyone let me know how I get around this??

 

Thanks

The slims aren't backwards compatible I'm afraid.

The PS3 slim does not play Ps2 games.

 

 

Below is a Signature



Sony are stabbing their loyal family customers in the back - We have 3 PS3s and 3 PSPs all on the same IP address and all registered with Sony. Why can't we use them at the same time anymore?

There are PS2 games on the store now but you cannot play actual PS2 discs on a slim PS3. You might have well had your leg pulled by a saddo on YouTube :smileyhappy:
