As far as I'm aware, PS2 games only work on the 60GB PS3 - ie the one with the 4 USB ports and the card slots, and then yes, you can play the Singstar games. Otherwise, you're out of luck

I may be wrong, but i think singstar is different . . . . . think if you have a ps3 version, you can "disc swap" while loaded to access the ps2 game's songlist . . .

Software update via PSN then disc swappy and you're good to go by the looks of it :)

Aha, according to the Playstation blog:

SingStar track compatibility across PS2 & PS3 is enabled via the Disc Swap feature.
The feature has previously been available on SingStar games for both PlayStation 2 and PLAYSTATION 3, but for the first time owners of SingStar for PS3 will be able to play songs from PS2 discs in their collection.
While playing a SingStar PS3 disc, at the song select screen, hit the [select] button to swap discs and play the songs from the inserted disc. The songs are not saved to the hard drive.
This is a unique feature for SingStar and makes it possible for fans who have already built up their PS2 SingStar collection to continue enjoying it on PS3. It will be delivered via a free game update later this year and will work with all current SingStar PS3 discs. It will also be included on future SingStar PS3 discs releasing next year.
This new feature will work with all current PS3 system models and does not require a system software update.
