Some people may have recently purchased a PS3 without having ever owned a PS2.  Once playing some PS3 games and browsing the Playstation network of games found PS2 games of interest. Therefore, being able to play older system games on the newly purchased PS3 would be nice; therefore, a question such as this arises.  And, yes, I'm that "some people." :smileyhappy:


Those PS2 classics available on PSN, are recoded to play on the PS3, so these games are recognized thes as a PS3 ones. That is why the saves don't need to use the PS2 virtual memory card option...

I believe at one you step to Netherlands next level but also Some people enjoy the fact of playing an old game on a newer console. even through its ps3 why not make it able to play any ps title weather it's ps1,ps2,or ps3 some games never get old and if ps3 have such amazing graphics than why spas on that idea

The PS2 System Data is for use with PS2 games run on PS3's that are backwards compatible, which need to use the PS3's internal HDD.

You can also find this info in the Store's description for the PS2 System Data download.

read the description. Then ask yourself that same question.

Cognitive Dissonance - The ability to understand multiple viewpoints even if they conflict with one another - and still use critical thinking, logical thought, and common sense to come to the realization that only ONE is the correct one and the others are wrong.

why do people buy a PS3 to play PS2 games on?  I'll never understand the point of buying a next gen system to play last gen games on.  At some point you had a PS2.  Why did you get rid of it if it was so important to you to be able to play PS2 games?



Why? WHY!?!?!?!?!?!? Because all THREE of my ps2 systems broke. IS THAT A GOOD ENOUGH REASON!?!?!?!?

Actually most of you are wrong about your facts... Any slim "CAN" play ps2 games there is no lack of hardware... A simple change to a cfw will allow you to, with "ANY SLIM OR FAT" its in the programing of the operating system. Even the systems with single laser lenses. Sony admitted to removing this function, they didn't omit hardware to do it. I have 3 ps3 systems. 1 fat origionally 80g bc now 1tb bc. 2 slim systems a 120 upgraded to 1tb and a 320 upgraded to 1tb and cfw it is now bc...
