Sorry for asking if this has been answered already.
I recently bought 80 gig ps3 having never owned a playstation2. One game i've been dying to play is Final Fantasy 12 which i bought just the other day. I was under the impression that the PS3 was backwards compatable however when i put the disc in my ps3 says it doesn't support PS2 games.
I've checked this website and found that i should be able to play it but i need a PlayStation 2 Network Adaptor Start-Up Disc. Could someone tell me what this is, where i could find one and if there is any other way to play ps2 games.
Thanks for any help given

It's only possible on the 60GB version, it's done through a combination of hardware and software emulation, meaning without the hardware no other model will support it, regardless of firmware updates.

As has already been said, only the initial 60GB PS3 supports backwards compatibility. At this time there are no plans to re-introduce this feature to any future PS3 models.
