Can PS2 games be played on a PS3

If you had a PS2 and wanted to upgrade, would you go PS3 or x-box360?

1) Yes

2) I love Halo and Gears Of War, so I'd have to say Xbox 360

I googled it and found out that:

Yes the 20GB, 60GB, and the older 80GB model can play PS2 games

The 40GB, Newer 80GB, and the 160GB model currently can't play PS2 games.

I thought that they all would play PS2 games, weird that they don't.

Only the first few models supported PS2 backwards compatibility. All the ones that were released in the last few years do not play PS2 games.

And on the second question, it could really go either way. Obviously if there are any exclusive game series' on the PS2 that you like then that would carry over into the PS3 (Ratchet and Clank, God of War, etc.) Both of the consoles have their advantages and disadvantages and good exclusives, so it's really up to you.

Watch these "Console Wars" videos for some in depth comparisons and info.

I would say you should upgrade to a Sega Dreamcast

Yeah, I'm not sure if newer models of the PS3 support backwards compatibility.

They don't and it sucks because the PS2 has a way better catalog of games than the PS3. :bouville:

I have both the 360 & PS3, a couple months ago I would of said PS3 all the way but XBOX released the new version that has WI-FI built in! Before if you wanted WI-FI you had to pay $100 for the adapter. Now the major difference is Blu-Ray! And of course whether you want to play Halo or Uncharted!

Yeah, the Blu Ray did it for me.
