does the new model 80gb playstation 3 play any ps2/1 games?



  1. you cannot play ps2 games on the newer model ps3. no matter wat gb. but you can play ps1. i got the mgs4 80gb bundle and it has played every color disk i put in it. even blue ones. but the new ps3 will not. sorry

  2. nope i tried loads of PS2 games on my 80GB. My friend said it depends if the disc is blue or silver but i only got blue and i haven’t tried silver. I don’t think PS2 games will work.

  3. Playstation 3 plays only Ps3 and Ps1 Games.

    Playstation 2 game playing was removed because it would make the Playstation 3 cheaper ( it required chips and what not). That’s why the ps3 cost $400, when it first came out it was $500.

  4. people seriously need to learn what the search bar is for.

    I take it I’m going to be answering this question forever too:

    backward compatibility for the PS3 with PS2 games is as follows:

    20GB (4 USB slots, no longer in production) – yes

    60GB (4 USB slots, no longer in production) – yes

    80GB with 4 USB slots (no longer in production, bundled with MGS4 or Motor Storm) – yes

    40GB (2 USB slots, no longer in production) – NO

    80GB with 2 USB slots – NO

    160GB (2 USB slots) – NO

    any other up coming PS3’s – NO

    in short: if it has 4 USB slots, yes. if it has 2 USB slots, no.

    all PS3s play PS1 games.

    the download that others may refer to is for backwards compatible PS3s ONLY! a download will NOT make a non-backwards compatible PS3 play PS2 games. PERIOD!

    “If a PLAYSTATION 3 is not backward compatible, you will not be able to add this function through any hardware (i.e., changing the hard disk drive) or software (i.e., updates, homebrew) upgrades or modifications. ”

    that came DIRECTLY from Sony’s own website: [url is not allowed].

  5. All PS3s can play PS1 games.

    The current PS3s, the 80GB and 160GB models, cannot play ANY PS2 games.

    It’s safe to say that NO future PS3s will ever be able to play any PS2 games either.

    Sony really wants you to buy a PS2 to play PS2 games.
