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

It's not such a good idea to suggest to people that they should modify their consoles in a way that is STRICTLY against the TOS of the PSN. Anybody doing so, and yourself included for openly admitting it, is subject to a permanent ban of their PSN user ID and console from the PSN.

Jdurg you are correct, if you choose to use your console activily on the psn I do not suggest modding your system. However my modified system is not on the psn and I can do what ever the f#@% I want with my electronics. Also all my systems have 2 seperate accounts feel free to report 1. And to you Cascadien just go to dashhacks.com and get educated. MultiMan is your new best friend. Smiley Happy

Some programmers/hackers found a way to run PS2 games on non-BC PS3's. 

The problem.... is that it doesn't work for every game, matter of fact, only works on literally a handful of games. 

They're improving it, but I wouldn't get my hopes up.


It looks promising tho. But to even run Custom Firmware on a PS3, you're going to be looking at a very difficult, long and drawn out process..... One of the steps is downgrading your firmware, which if not done correctly, can brick your PS3

Well some people do have a ps2 but sometimes it won't play the game you want it to play. I have been trying for 2 1/2 weeks to get my favorite game to work but nothing I have tried worked. I can't figure out if it is my ps2 or the game. And I bought it used so who knows what happened to the system before I got it. And I know it's been dropped a few times. So if it is the PlayStation than if I get a new game it will only do the same. I know that a few games and movies play on it but it's weird bcuz the game that I want to get to work, has barely any scratches on it. And it'll play the most scratched games and movies just fine. I just don't understand it.

What is the date of the last message before the one you just posted?

The way you play the game is the way you live your life.
