PS3 backwards compatible?


is there any way you can make the new ps3 80g backwards compatible?
Ive heard that you can play god of war and final fantasy on it.

Is it true?


  1. Unfortunately, no. It probably won’t ever be – keep in mind that the 80GB uses software emulation for PS2 games, and with software emulation it’s never 100%.

    The best hope for close to 100% compatibility is going to be the 60GB model that uses hardware compatibility. It uses the emotion engine chip which was in the PS2 for it’s compatibility.

  2. they took out the software/hardware that enabled newer models to play ps2 games! they did that in order to allow a price cut!
