you were too lazy to re-plug your PS1 console to the TV?
I think I bought the wrong console this gen.

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 PS3s are backwards compatible.

For PS1 games, yes they are.

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.
