Found 12th May 2010
Hi All,

Just a quick one as I don't know. I have an old 60gb PS3 that has backswards capability to play ps1 and ps2 games. To save data for the PS1 & 2 games, can they be saved straight to the hard disk or do you need to buy and adaptor for it and the old memory card?

Thanks for your time!

Will you be looking to buy "Max Payne 3" when it is released for the PS3 in the latter half of 2010 (exact date still unconfirmed)?

PS. All PS3 consoles can play original Playstation (PS1, if you insist) titles for their local region of release ("PAL" being that used in the UK).
