Nope, the PS2 and PS3 can play PS1 games just fine. But I have done this with the Wii's Virtual Console.

Or...you can simply insert your PS1 disc and not replug in your original system?

I do it with Virtual Console too. I have Zelda: A Link to the Past on GBA and I wanted to play it on the big screen.

Not all are backwards compatible with PS2 titles. All PS3s are backwards compatible with PS1 titles.

They don't work with mine.


I think it's because of region issues.


My PS1 games are region 1

My PS3 is region 3. I had no idea it was region 3 when I bought it.
