Just got my son a second hand PS3 60GB as I was told this was the one that was backward compatable. He has tried 2 games...both Smackdown V Raw ps2 games and they keep freezing. Can anyone help by telling me what games will play? We only got this as he has so many ps2 games? kelly . stonelake @ live . co .uk
Well i went to buy 1 today from GAME shop for 199 and got told by the guy 4get the graphics wont be the same as a ps2 and that ps3 dont recommend it. he told me to buy a newer model hopefully that still has a warranty and keep ps2 aswell, thinking about it if my 60gb dies on me ill be screwed, the 2nd hand ones are old and hammered by 12 year olds all day.
The 60 Gb is indeed the only model that is ps2 compatable. However it is reported by Sony that only about 80 per cent of ps2 games will play on a ps3. Its pot luck I'm afraid. You should find that most of the games he has will play on it, but it really is a case of just trying them.
