    PS3...

    We are thinking of buying a PS3, mostly for the singstar downloads (sad I know lol). We have a lot of PS2 singstar discs, will they work on the PS3?

    I have been looking around and some say yes and some no. No point getting a PS3 if they won't work....oh also buzz PS2 discs, will they work?

    Thanks a lot in advance :o)

    A quick google tells me that they work.

    Only if you have the 60gb version. That one is compatible with most ps2 games & definitely the singstar ps2 games. Also the PS2 mikes will work fine on the PS3. However I think you'd need at least one PS3 singstar game to use the online singstore (which is great!).

    I have a 40GB ps3 and my gf plays the PS2 sing star games all the time.

    you will need the old 60gb version for definate, can only really be found second hand and are quite costly because of the backwards compatibility

    Yes but you have to load the ps3 singstar disk first and then load the ps2 one

    You put Singstar original (ps3 version) into the ps3 then once the game loads you press select or something and swap the discs for any other singstar disc (ps3 or ps2)

    I'm 110% sure it works.

    As for Buzz, I have no idea

    Well that was a mix of replies lol Thats why I posted I was getting so much different information from...googling ;-) and asking others.

    I don't know anyone with a 80g PS3 to try one of my discs on, everyone has a wii that I know off.

    It was the 80gb one we were looking at, I didn't think the older ones were still available?
