Recently purchased a few PS2 games from this site, as i strolled across a playstation site earlier that said many PS2 games were backwards compatible on a 80GB PS3.

I have an 80GB PS3 and put the games in today and it says they are an unsupported format? I do have the latest software update aswelll.

Can anyone suggest how i can fix this? Is there something i can download? Or can i just not play PS2 games on it?

Cheers. Any advice is really appreciated.

You can update it by swapping it with a 60GB machine, it will play PS2 games then.

there is no update etc as im sure its a hardware or maybe a peice of software which allows it .... it was costing sony too much to incorporate into the ps3 (made it too expensive) so they ditched the idea ... i just have a ps2 and a ps3 in case i wanna play ps2 games (ps2 can be got for £40 or less on here)

The joys of having a 60gb ps3... not really lol got a modded ps2 slimline next to it. The extra usb slots and memory card slots are useful though.

Don't really need a modded ps2 anymore though mate. You can now play ps2 games off a USB hard drive on the
PS3 (must be 60 GB version)
