Help needed...Play PS2 games on PS3 Slim...

[ Edited ]
105 Replies 44,193 Views edited 24-02-2011

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

I can't believe this is still being discussed...... It seems the rumour mill on the internet is keeping this one alive.

If PS4 won't be able to emulate PS2 then what's the use. A PC is able, even though it's not completely perfect.

 

Just watch this video and you'll see: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=wSRp8YtHupQ

 

The uploader, said and quote:

 

"Full HD and higher resolutions, save states, unlimited memory cards, widescreen patches, being able to use any gamepad/mouse/keyboard you prefer, 5.1 audio expansion to name a few."

If it won't emulate, it'll be down to the same reason as with the PS3 - business.

 

If it's not profitable for Sony to do this, they won't do it. Backwards compatibility is a nice things and all, but if you REALLY want to make sure you can play old games, do as I do. KEEP your consoles. It's an incredibly simple option.

 

And I never accept these arguments that keeping other consoles "takes up space" - I have a tiny house, and you'd be surprised at what I've managed to cram in here.

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?

I've watched videos on Youtube, that say if i download the PS2 system data thing from the Playstation Store, it will allow me to play my PS2 games on my PS3, and that it works on PS3 320GB Slim. 

I've download the data thing (sorry I'm not really a computer/gamer person, i'm figuring this out for my younger brother :P ) but I still can't get the PS2 games to work. So is it just a load of guys pratting around and taking the mickey out of people like myself who don't really understand all this technical stuff?

If it's not, is there any way possible, or is Sony just being tw*ts?

Cheers

 No that system DATA is for old US 60GB that need to use INSTALL DATA from certain US PS2 games.

 

 

The US version of Resident EVIL outbreak file 1 and 2 need the PS2 HDD to play and that DL makes a 60GB BWC PS3 able to reconfigure part of the PS3 HDD to PS2 format
