    I been reading about it off and on this morning and I downloaded the PS2 data from the store but still unable to play games. My PS2 is broken hence the desire to attempt ps2 games on ps3. If it doesn't work it doesn't work no biggie but I am finding people who can get it to work but their threads are not updated on how they got it to work? I have the 80gig model. Specifically I was going to get back into Socom CA since I never finished it.

    to get it to work you put the PS2 disk in the PS3, should be golden after that.

    honestly I would just go buy a used slim PS2 from craigslist if I really wanted to play a PS2 game if I were you.


    Weird. I have a PS2 compatible PS3....and never play PS2 games in it. too much new stuff to play on my 360 :bowdown:

    launch ps3's have hardware-based emulation that did 100%
    80gb 4-port ps3 has software-based emulation that does 98% or whatever

    I've since expanded on my ps2 collection, playing games I couldn't afford or find from last generation. So what if I payed $500 for the mgs4 sku, I got the last gen of bc :)

    where's your toque, eh?
    Walmart and Superstore were both selling PS2 slims for $50 up here last week. Deal might be still going on, and maybe in the states too? :dunno:

    They won't do that stuff until they figure out an emulation option for ps3's that dont have emulation support right now.
