I have a lot of old ps1 and 2 games that I wanted to play again but I do not have a console.

so should I buy a used cheaper playstation 2 or spend more money on a ps3 that I might also use to play some current titles?

You could try to find a 60GB or 80GB PS3 that is in great condition. Then you could play all PS1-2-3 games on it

this has me confused. so not all ps3 can play ps1 games? in other words not all ps3s can read the original ps1 discs? only 60 and 80g ps3?

what other ways can ps3 play ps1 games? is there some program like steam that you can buy and d/l them?

As I said, EVERY PS3 plays PS1 games, but only the oldest models can play PS2 discs.
