After stumbling across some news that GTA4 is coming out mid this year (i think) on the PS3, im starting to look at potentially getting one in the near future. Incidentally, GTA was the ONLY reason why i got the PS2 in the first place.
The question is, for the 40GB PS3 console, can we play PS2 games on it? I checked the FAQ section on the official PS3 site and it says 40GB version is not but the 80GB is. The quote of the FAQ is here:
- Can I still play my PlayStation®2 games, DVD movie, and CD music collection on PLAYSTATION®3?
Yes, you can play your DVD and CD collection, as well thousands of PlayStation® and PlayStation®2 software titles on your 80GB PS3. . Many PlayStation®2 format software titles operate, but full compatibility is not guaranteed. Updating the system software may improve compatibility. Visit www.us.playstation.com for system software updates.The 40GB PS3, however, does not include PlayStation 2 compatibility.
Through some of the threads ive read in this forum, it seems like the 40GB is backward compatible so just to set the record straight, can the current owners of the PS3 console of the 40GB version confirm that it is or isnt backward compatible?
