Can the new PS3 Super Slim play PS2 games? I mean bought disc games instead of the PSN PS2 Classics. I dont think it does, but I want someone to confirm this.

Plus, if this is in the wrong section, sorry, I didnt know where to put this.

No it can't only early models of the PS3 could do this and it was removed from all models a number of years ago.

The new PS3 Slim looks retro-ish, but nope, it doesn't.

There was a thread not long ago in GD where some American bloke claimed his new slim was playing PS2 games. He said he could post video proof of it but when I asked him to he never came back.

They took it out of the newer ones because it made them more expensive, supposedly.

Nothing to do with HD remakes or putting then on PSN, that would be cynical to suggest such a thing.

NTSC launch models (20GB / 60GB) have hardware support for PS1/PS2 games.
PAL launch model (60GB premium only) and NTSC 80GB have software based support for PS1/PS2 games.
All others have no software/hardware support for either to cut down on costs, improve reliability as well as reduce potential thermal issues.

Sony are stabbing their loyal family customers in the back - We have 3 PS3s and 3 PSPs all on the same IP address and all registered with Sony. Why can't we use them at the same time anymore?

The only models that I can recall that play PS2 games are the 20GB, 60GB, and the (old) 80GB. These have been discontinued quite some time ago (as others have mentioned), and you'll be quite lucky to find one of them in a pawn shop or a local dumpster.

 

I still have one, but it began to artifact on some games... now I have to use a new PS3. Luckily, it replaced my old PS2. :BigGrin:

I don't get why you want to. The PS3 could barely play them properly. I can remember playing GTA SA on my 60GB and it was jumpy, slow and kept cutting bits of the city off.

From my experience PS3's BC was never that good so I stuck to a PS2 to play PS2 games.

My 80gb doesn't even play PS3 games anymore :(
I have a feeling my old slim is on it's way out too, I've noticed the fan is getting louder and the last few times I played Tomb Raider it started to get really loud, so I switched it off to let it cool. It seems to be fine with the last couple of games I've played though.
