If you have a 60GB PS3 then yes. If not i.e you have the 40GB one then most likely no unless you have a hardware update on it

they will only work on the origianl 60gb models, the new 40gb models are not backwards compatible

Yes the PS3 can play PS2/PSTwo games as well as PSOne. :thumbsup:

You must makesure that you get the 60GB PS3 Version of the console as only that is backward compatible (80% of games work)

It was not "silly", that makes it sound as though they forgot to add support for PS2 games by accident.

It was a deliberate attempt by Sony to move people on to the PS3 platform AND encourage them to buy new PS3 games.

If they kept supporting the PS2 games many people would just continue to buy and play PS2 games.

Also by removing the support for PS2 games it allowed them to reduce the price of the PS3, making it nearer the price of the XBox and encouraging a growth in sales.
