Backwards compatibility does not extend to latest Kingdom Hearts release.
Article features work-around for the problem
I didnt even knew the 80GB has backward compability.. oO
Some 80gigs do have backward compatibility, like the MGS4 80GB Pack which I own. Anyway, its a damn shame that it wont play on my PS3. Time to dust off my PS2 then.
I bet it'll work on the BC-compatible 80gigs soon-time. When Mana Khemia came out in March, it didn't play. The firmware update following its release gave it support though. I bet Kingdom Hearts will be made to work with a future update, too. I kind of expect the same thing with Persona 4 next week. I'll buy it, but I expect to not be able to play it immediately. If that happens, I'm cool with it, because I still have Valkyria Chronicles to keep me busy, among other games.
Well, could be worse, no BC on 40gb. I don't mind since I own a slim but I don't have it with me. So, no KH or Persona 4 for me till I go back for the break.
That seems like an odd minor bug. Could be fixed in a firmware update.
Got a PS2 to play it on anyway.
BC is a must.
First time Patchstation 3 says something that I can agree on... Anyway and what about the 60GB? The one that has the EE chip, can that model play this game?
Rumor has it that FW 3.0 will contain PS2 BC.
lol i got 60 gb, still haven't bought the game yet but when i do,i hope it works :)
I have Rechain of memories and a 60gb PS3 works great!
Though I have a 60GB PS3, I still prefer the non-smoothed output of the PS2 using component cables. Personally, I think there's no reason any JRPG fan should not have a PS2, even if they have a BC PS3.
That's right, I'm a lucky 60GB owner. So if I "wanted" to play a gameboy game on my PS3, I could. But I don't...
u prbly already know but incase u dont, its a 3d remake with alot of stuff thats changed, plus well i never beat it with riku lol so gives me another reason to play it for only 30$
It's surprisingly a good "gameboy" game
tho i have a 60 gig, and its pretty fun, alot better than gba version
well ill just wait for them to fix this....ill just finish playing prince of persia and im loving it
Only PS3's with b/c are the 20GB, 60GB, 80GB bundles (Motorstorm, MGS4) all new PS3's wont have b/c
It was rumored to almost be in 2.53 but sony pulled it at the last min because of issues. We will just have to see.
Wait. So it won't work on my Motorstorm 80GB PS3?
and with the 60GB one, could I play this game? because I don't have a PS2 anymore and I was planning in buying this game...
I have a launch 60 GB as well hope it works on mine.
It should work since it's a launch PS3 and those 60 gigs have b/c, I unfortunately have the 40 gig with no b/c, but I do have a ps2 that I use frequently for JRPG's! XD
It works, it just doesn't work good "you can move around but aren’t able to attack" But... "Update: There is a work-around. If you download a game save from after the tutorial (first battle) the rest of the game will work fine." So apparently it does work if you do it right :P I'm not getting anyways, already played the GBA version and this one doesn't interest me despite the improvements. I'll wait for Birth By Sleep :P
i have a really old 20gb, long live our small crowd lol
Square and Sony are stupid
Square Enix proves their stupidity with this release. Both KH and KH2 sold more in the US than it did in Japan. Yet Japan gets both Final Mixes. What's more, we don't even get the FULL Final Mix + for KH2, we are stuck with only HALF of it, priced full? No thanks. Square Enix = EA Lite.
i have the 80 gig motorstorm ps3 and the ps2 games i bought for it so far are working and no problems if i ever come across a ps2 game not working that will be the day i will buy a ps2
