I've still got my games from when I had the first Playstation console and wondered if I could play them on the PS3?

S.E Man is completely wrong - the PS3 can play PS1 games perfectly. However, the console won't be able to play PS2 games.

The Ps3 320 GB model ( and all slimline models ) will NOT play neither PS one nor PS2 Games.
The only way to do this is purchase and download whatever games are offered on the PS Network/Store

Well I've now got my PS3 and it does play the original games, not very good graphics but they are old games so I'm not worried. I've also got a few PS3 games and they're great. Thanks everyone for your input. ;o)

The original fat PS3 models played PS2 games but none of the slims will as Sony removed backwards compatibility (supposedly) to keep hardware costs down. I didn't know they could play PS1 games, so that's good to know.
