Technically speaking guys, can I play SO3 on my PS3?

#1Mad_CartoonistPosted 7/31/2012 7:07:55 AM
I saw many people talking about it, but I also heard about how PS2 game is not playable on PS3.

So is it possible to play a PS2 game on a PS3?
If it matters, my PS3 is the 160GB model, and if you guys want any other specific info, I'd flip my PS3 up to look at it for you.

I think yes, you could. Also, you guess need PS2 memory card. But that's just my speculation since I got psx game on PS2 yet it require PSX memory card.

Is it a slim PS3? If so, then no PS2 games work.

If it's a fat PS3, I think only the 20, 40, 60, and 80 GB models had BC with PS2 games.

PS2 Memory Card Adapter. Sold Separately! Yay!

The PS3 adds slight button-delay and its 720p/1080p upscaling is visually inferior to running the game in 480p on a PS2, anyway. Too bad the PS3 has the convenience of less cords/wires and near unlimited Memory Card space; however it doesn't support copying multiple files at once back to a physical card, which makes it a pain to transfer things back-and-forth if using it as a PS2 memory archive.

Might be easier to emulate it on PC, but you'll need a reasonable machine and won't be able to use your saves. Higher internal resolution though.

More specifically; the 20, 60, and original 80 GB models can play PS2 games. However, only the 20 and 60 GB models have the PS2 Emotion Engine chip, making them much more compatible with PS2 games than the 80 GB version (which uses software emulation only).

You can transfer your saves from your PS2 via SharkPort, AR Max/Max Drive, or Code Breaker. It's also possible to softmod your PS2 to be able to transfer it to a USB device.

You could probably use a memory card adapter to transfer your saves to a PS3 and then put them on a USB device from there, as well.

What does an emotion engine do?

I believe it smoothen the graphics of PS2 games.

Anyway, thanks for all of your answers.
Man, that suck ._. My PS3 is 160GB model.
And here I thought I'd be able to keep on playing SO3 w/o my PS2. I asked the shop about my PS2's condition, and obviously, he suggested I get a new one, LOL. It's a 8-years old fat PS2. Really about time I change it.
I am seriously considering buying another PS2 because I STILL have some businesses on it.

I'm also looking for PS2 Emulator on Mac.
But i'm not a really IT person, so I don't know how to set it up on my computer.

The Emotion Engine is the PS2's CPU.

Well, if it makes you feel any better, all PS3's can still play PS1 games. =P

Apparently, someone has made a PCSX2 port for Mac:

No idea how well it runs, though, as I haven't touched a Mac since junior high.
