    I'm looking to buy a used one with PS2 emulation. Do they play PS1 games as well? And on the hardware emulated and software emulated ones, do they play all PS2 games or just select ones like the 360 can only play select original xbox games?

    oringinal PS3 20 gig and 60 gig had ps2 hardware backwards compatibility (100% full compatibility - enitre ps2 library)

    ALL ps3's have software ps1 bc

    then the 80 gig had software ps2 bc (so some games did not work 100%, but usually this was patched)

    im not sure if the 40 had it it, too, i doubt it.


    after that, they removed it. from the (newer mg 80gig ones) onward..no ps2 bc


    hope this helps
