No, but I have re-purchased a PS1 game that I already own, so I can play it on my PSP.

I have yet to have any kind of issue playing my PS1 games on my PS3. All of mine work fine on the system, even Grandia which was mentioned as not working correctly.
My interpretation of reality is different than yours. Don't destroy my reality, even if you consider it a fantasy.

The PS3 isn't region free even for PS3 games. It's just that nobody has region locked a PS3 game yet (AFAIK) by choice. A publisher can region lock a PS3 game if they want to.

In other words PS3 games are region free, the console is not.
I can't wait for the "cinematic experience" trend to be over.

I re-purchase PS1 games since i have, umm... "special" versions of some good classics.

I have considered re-buying FFV, since the PS1 copy does not work correctly on the PS3 - freezes often. But I do still have a PS2, so couldn't justify the expense.
How appropriate, you fight like a cow!

It's known that some of the PS1 titles still don't run correctly on the PS3. I can say for sure Grandia doesn't....i did have to pull out my PS1 for that prior to the PSN release.

I have only bought a few since i still own most of the games that i would have purchased otherwise....specifically RPGs like the FF's, Xenogears, Suikoden, Chrono games, and others.

I got Alundra, Grandia, and Threads of Fate specifically for PSP use.

That's actually kinda strange because my disc version works just fine.. That's kind of unfortunate that yours doesn't, I'm sorry.

I hate how PS1 games on the PS3 can't be played in their original 240p resolution modes. As a result games are less responsive and have flicker/look worse in motion on SDTVs.
