you can on all ps3's? otherwise why are they there on the ps store?

Its definitely a yes

all ps3's have ps1 backwards compatibility

I do on mine anyway, just the older 60gb models that only play playstation2 games

Yes, you can play PS1 games on ALL PS3's - it's only the PS2 games that only work with the 60gb model.

the 60gb version plays playstation 2 games, the 40 and 80gb versions play s1 and ps3 games only

I was thinking of ps2 games . My bad :whistling:

lol i misread the title . thought it was ps2 not ps1

Sorry to cloud the water on this subject.
But I was lead to believe that only the 60gb original ps3 had retro ability. As sony wanted to compete with the xbox 360 and wii on price. So, it discarded the expensive chips that enabled it to play these games.
I hope this helps

I believe the PS1 part is done by emulation so doesnt need the chips.

I didn't know I could play PS1 games on a PS3 - I know I can't play PS2 games so assumed the same for PS1, boy that's lame :roll:

You can do remote play to your PS3 via your PSP and play the PS1 game you have in the drive... or if you download any PS1 games from the Playstation Store, you can upload them to your PSP too.

I have some PS1 games I'm gonna put in FS/FT - there might be a couple you'd be interested in (pac-man and crash bash....) Will advertise them now....

you can use imgburn to make an img of your ps1 discs, then use a tool (popstation) to convert it to a psp file to play on your psp. Obviously your psp needs to be customed for that?? Also not sure on the legality of it even though you physically own the games.

One thing to note, Im not sure if this is on the UK 60 gig PS3's but the US 60 gig ones you can use software to boot ps2 isos from the hard drive.
