    Anyway set it up think it was Christmas day after dinner and was told it plays ps2 games as well as ps3 games. So put a ps2 game in and want to know where they got the daft idea it plays ps2 games. No it doesn't. Not fair. I only want to play thrillville my favourite ps2 game but can't. Getting my ps2 set up at some point.:D then I can play it. Had a rollercoasters idea and wanted to build it. Ps2 can play ps1 games so why shouldn't a ps3 play ps2 games?:rolleyes: don't get that.:confused:

    The first version of the PS3 did play PS2 games. The newer version is thinner, and therefore they got rid of the ability to play older games, in order to be able to make it thinner.

    Does that make any sense?

    I have a PS3 and an XBOX...prefer the XBOX though, because there is more games for it. Let me know if you find something good for the PS3!

    Older versions of the ps3 did play ps2 games. When they made the slim, they took out that functionality.

    But I have more ps2 games. Only got 1 ps3 game and I'm rubbish at it.
    I think they should have kept it. I like the game I have for it but I'm rubbish at it. I had to mess about with a username and everything with this. Feel let down by it now I do like it don't get me wrong but feel like it's let me down. Was going to build a big rollercoaster with a vertical drop and loops and stuff.

    I'm always buying games I used to play when I was younger - Theme Hospital, Red Alert 2 and Quake are my 3 favourites.

    Kind of ruins the memory though because back then they were awesome: now the graphics don't seem to be as good as what they were compared to today's graphics!

    It's either more expense or faffing about getting the ps2 out of storage.


    Never bought the ps3, still got the ps2. :D
    Thought the Wii would be a games console that wouldn't be for me, thoughtI would hate it but went the opposite way and actually loved playing the Wii whhen I've used it though not got one of my own yet.

    Thats because we live in a HD world innit.
    I think its mad how these days in games they actually cast actors to play the part of characters.
    I found that most apparent when I was playing Enslaved, as it had Andy Serkis as the main characters voice, and you could tell the designers had spent a lot of time looking at his face, as it looked so much like him.
    Either that, or it was my brain just associating him with the character because of his voice, as it does.
    Good choice of old games there, i must say.
    My top three from back in the ps1/2 days are Theme Park, Manhunt, Gta series.
    One simply cannot wait for GtaV!
