Can I Play PS2 Singstar disks on my PS3?

7 Replies 1,267 Views Created 12-11-2008

Apologies if everyone is tired of this however I have just bought an 80GB PS3 and foolishly expected my PS2 Singstar disks to work. They don't.. does anyone have any solutions or information as to how to get them to work please? Thanks

the 80GB isn't BC so they won't play. Work fine on a 60 gigger though

They are supposed to be releasing a patch to enable ALL Ps3s to play the content from the PS2 disks. Just dont know when though.

Thanks, I hope so. Do you know how these patches reach us..are they a software download directly in to the PS3 or are they added to a PS3 game disk

 cheers

Well, they announced an update for the PS3 Singstar game that would allow the use of PS2 discs, much the same way as the disc swapping in the PS2 games.
So you'd need to buy a PS3 Singstar game (such as the ABBA one that comes out tomorrow) and have your PS3 connected to the Internet so it can download updates.

HOWEVER, Sony's track record with announcements related to PS3 Singstar hasn't exactly been stellar, so I wouldn't hold my breath just yet...

Hi, just thought I'd report back on my progress (or lack of). Just bought AbbA singstar disk for PS3 (I have to say it's very good!), unfortunately it still hasn't "unlocked" any ability to play the PS2 Singstar disks. I tried the disk swap utility (no joy) and as yet I haven't found any prompt to download any updates.

 

I'll keep looking but I appreciate the suggestions which are being posted...thanks

I phoned up Sony because on one of the Leipzig trailers they talked about the disc swap feature and I am pretty sure it said that the Ps2 discs could be incorporated! I have a 60gb so I can play the discs but not into my PS3 library! I was fooled too dude! ;)
