Are there any PS 1 games that will play on the PS3 320GB system?

11 replies 239 views Edited Nov 20, 2012

Our first Playstation purchase, so we bought the Uncharted 3 bundle but missed the fine print that said it's not compatible with  PS2 titles. But it is backwards compatible with some original Playstation titles. Without trial and error, how can I find out if what games will work on our system? Did I overlook a list of compatible games on the network?  Thanks

Nearly 100%? I thought it was full compatible with PSOne games? You've heard of some not working?

FFVIII is incompatible with PAL PS3's or so I heard. There were 1 or 2 more, but I can't remember off the top of my head (they were games I never heard of).

Yes, even though all PS3's have the PS1 hardware, it still has some issues playing games. Now, out of the 1500 or so PS1 games that have been made, a very small number of PS1 games will either not even start, or somewhere along the playthrough the game will no longer progress. 

The probability that someone would actually run into a game that wont work, or won't play after a certain sequence is quite remote tho.

 PS2 had a similar problem where it didn't play some PS1 games or had problems with some PS2 games.
