Manhunt playable on the 60gb uk ps3?

32 replies
Found 19th Jun 2008
I bought manhunt (1) for the ps3 and it was slightly scratched and when I started playing it I was able to play it up to the end of a cut scene and then kept on the camera image and I was wondering was it the scratches or isn't it playable beyond the cut scene on the ps3?

anyone played manhunt on a 60gb uk ps3?

According to the PS3 Compatibility List there should be no problems with this working on a 60gb.

Original Poster

I guess that answers it as it shouldn't load at all if it doesn't work on ps3 most likely the scratches.
Right...?

sorry for the double post but where is this list?

Here's the list :

us.playstation.com/Sup…tus


Even though it says the US site all the PAL counterparts should work .

but the US ps3 has hardware backwards compatibility while the PAL ps3 uses software meaning the uk ps3 might not be able to play manhunt.

I'm still peeved it doesn't play MGS3

it plays the mgs 3 special edition, if that helps. Has anyone played manhunt on the uk 60gb ps3?

Metal Gear Solid 3 does play on a 60gb ;-)

it doesn't contain manhunt, does this mean it doesn't work?

Are you sure, according to the link above they say "Should play on PLAYSTATION®3 with noticeable issues", what are those issues? I might get SE although the normal version is much cheaper.

I know, I cannot find it under 25 pounds.

Also Snake Eater ain't listed just Subsistance (that's the special edition, right?) so do both of them work on 60gb?

yep both work but the normal edition works worse (apparently) I think Gamespot said it.

Damn, I hope the price crashes 'cus of MGS4

Original Poster

I will pm you if I see it cheap and could you do the same?

Cool, sure. Now back to your Manhunt problem, could you fix the scratches to make it work?

Original Poster

I could but they charge 50p for that and it might be a waste if manhunt never runs on the ps3.
Why didn't they just put in better backwards compatibility like the ps2 did ps1 games?

The normal edition works fine , that's the version that i've got . I use the US backwards site as the EU also says that God Of War runs with problems and it works fine .

Too expensive I guess, I think the US one is fully compatible though

Original Poster

That is good, but seriously no one knows if manhunt works on the uk ps3 with latest firmware?

Does firmware updates actually improve BC though? Wouldn't they make all games work by now if it did?

Original Poster

I think they have a small affect but I mean between the very first firmware and the very latest, small fixes and a few games were fixed to work.

I remember trying to play some variant of The Hulk in my brand new PS3 (1.50 f/w) and it wouldn't work until I updated to 1.80 so it did make a difference up until a certain point.

I think they stopped developing the B/C a few updates ago.

I am begging someone who has manhunt (known working one) put the disc into the ps3 and hit start and then see if the game works past the first cut scene. Please......
