All of them. Any model of playstation 3 can play disc or digital playstation one games.

pretty sure all models for PSone.
though i do recall someone recently mentioning a disc or two that wont work... like ever.

the console also needs to be of the same region as the disc i think?
if you want PSN PSone games, make an account assigned to whatever region you want and that regions store will prompt.
you may need to seek out region specific PSN cards, but eh... theyre out there.

The PS4 doesn't play PS1 games?! Really? Every PS console has been able to play PS1 games. Bloody hell, by this point the PS4 should be able to play PS1 and PS2 games - you'd think Sony would at least give PS4 owners that much. I can understand (note I said understand, not agree with) them not making PS3 games work, what with the different CPU/GPU architecture and their current strategy of repackaging popular PS3 games as "Remasters" etc. but come on! Give them PS1 and PS2 games - people are playing these things on cell phones now so it's not like the PS4 can't do it.

But then they couldn't sell you yet another copy of the same game!

Remaster of a remaster. They're on the 4th generation of their console now, there's only so many times they can sell the same game before even the dumbest of us start catching on. I personally admit to purchasing remastered GoW games when I already owned the PS2/PSP originals. I bought the Origins Collection because although I already owned CoO (on PSP) I didn't have GoS. And although I already owned PS2 versions of GoW I and II and a 60 gig PS3 which can play them, I found a brand new copy of the HD Collection for $5. GoW I and II at a silky smooth 60 fps even during battle intense scenes with zero screen tearing or frame drops? For $5? I'm in. Still, that doesn't excuse Sony from not making the PS4 at least B/C with PSone game disks.
