Some games work, some don't.

Silent Hill and FFVII worked for me but FFVIII didn't.


the disc version of FFVIII doesn't work very well on both PS2 and 3 for some reason


I've played and finished FFVIII on my PS3 slim with no problem whatsoever, maybe I was just lucky?
My PS3 reads more of my PS1 discs than my PS2 does tbh

European? FF8 (US) gave me no problem but I remember hearing on here that the EU version has problems.

The PS3 will play PS1 discs.

It used to play PS2 discs, but Sony got money hungry and removed it to force people into re-buying them.

But yes, it does still play PS1 discs.

Hah, it's funny that you mention Silent Hill working, because that's the one and only PS1 game that has given me trouble on the PS3. There's a strange bug where this loud blaring sound will drown out all of the audio after you shoot your gun. It started off seeming fine, but as soon as I got the gun and fired, SCREEEEEEEEEEEECH (kind of like an 18 wheeler horn).

So yeah, any PS3 model can play PS1 discs, but the emulation might not be perfect on every game.
