Re: Why doesn't the PS3 Slim play PS2 games?

Different versions of PS3 have different capabilities. The slims in my opinion are not that great.

Re: Why doesn't the PS3 Slim play PS2 games?

I bought my ps3 first gen the day they came out, I traded in my ps2 and 53 of my 75 games to pay 200.00 cdn @ eb games in Toronto. my system just died from the yellow light of death for the second time the first time was less then a month ago. i just went to Futureshop and bought the 320 slim with Uncharted 2, Modnation racers, Alice in wonderland and the Blu Ray remote for 300.00 cdn plus the 100.00 i spent to get the system fixed the first time and your telling me to spend another 100.00 to play gta3, sanandreas, vice city, vice city stories, liberty city stories, hitman 2, blood money, contracts, scar face, kill switch, etc... I don't f***ing thing so. Sony should come out with the ps2  library on the psn. in my opinion (not that it matters)

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?

i'll give you 5 reasons

1.wireless controllers

2.internal memory card

3.ps2 library is better than ps3 library

4.less cables + 4 controller support without any adapters

5.because we can

Still clinging to that one, are ya?

Unless you're writing that one from 2006, like in that Keanu Reeves mailbox movie, that excuse doesn't fly anymore.

trueSmiley Happy

but then you guys should bought the PS3 when it's $600 instead of $300  then since those ps3 version can play PS2 games..

yes.. because you can... or maybe you can't??

my suggestion is that if you want to play ps2 games on your ps3.. then look for those older models that can play ps2 games....
