The latest nugget of next-gen info tells us Sony's new console will play every PlayStation game in existence.
But i only will be playing ps3 games.
Wow, that is amazing, they are claiming that it will work for every game. awesome
sony is good at this department so it`s normal.
Ive played them to death, sold them all years ago. Never played a xbox game on my 360, never played a PS1 game on my PS2.
I know the PS3 will have a dry spell when it comes to games at launch, but if I cant find anything to play, I will go do some yardwork or something. I wont go digging through the closet to find an old PS1 game just to play it on a PS3.
I guess its for those that cant afford any games after dropping a months salary on a PS3.
This is supposed to allow you to play any games including thoose unique to Asia and Europes format. This will help when the system launchs Just like being able to play Halo 2 on 360 helped because at first games will be limted. Of course 360 games are stilllimted and supposedly at E3 Microsoft announced that they were done with backwards compatability because the future was forward not backward but there are many old games that I still love for the PS1 & 2.
I have been playing an old PS1 game Lunar 2 on my PS2 right now. Of course you have to use a PS1 memory card to do the saves and loads. I like having backwards compatibility but, where and how will I get to my old PS1 and PS2 data from the current memory card system. I have yet to see a spot to plug the old memory cards from PS2 and PS1 into the new PS3. If anyone has this information that would rock. I would like to play my old games again on the new PS3 but I would like to start where I left off. Not all cause some just don't matter but others I would like to start where I left off.
Its not going to look any better, man, PS1 are you for real, they still make those?
I heard the memory slots will be there, you should be in luck.
i heard youll just have to start all over on the game, if you want to play an old ps1 or 2 game. Thats what i heard along time ago, it might have changed but yea i didnt see any memory card slots for ps1 or 2 on the ps3. just wait for more info man, someone will know the answer for sure
actually it does make the game look a little bit better and runs smoother, the ps2 did it with the ps1 games so ps3 will make it alot better, maybe nothing noticable but it will be better
Not worried about how it will look. I have all my old games all the way back to most systems I ever owned. I sold my PS1 when all my games I had worked with my PS2 so no point of keeping the ps1. I only have so much room to keep all my systems. If my sega, nes, snes, turbografix 16, and etc. system games would play on any system besides the one they were made for I would get rid of them also but alas they don't.
It's hard to believe this but I like games. I don't care about graphics. It's the story or the gameplay or nostalgia reasons. I'm from the generation of the pong machine and Atari 2600 which I still have those and the games for it. I will always play old games cause I bought them for the fun of the game and I will replay them. Whats the point spending the money on a game and getting rid of it. To me games are forever cause you can keep playing them even past their coolness time.
I mean thats what gaming consoles/PCs/whatever you want to call them if your a gamer. Why not play the game again if you enjoyed it. Who cares if it isn't realistic and has jaggies. If the game is fun then dangit play it.
sorry, but according to this article it looks like you can't officially play your old saves from your PS1/PS2 memcard. http://weblogs.variety.com/... if you read one of the comments, he explains how to be able to transfer your old saves though.
there's also this site: http://www.raphnet.net/elec... that's a lot of work though.
hopefully, Sony should've reconized this issue and deal with it in the future...hopefully
will you be able to play espn nfl 2k series on it cause that'll be a great thing?
Perhaps the author should fact check before talking out of his arse! The current backwards compat list for the 360 lists over 200 games that are certified as compatible. That is 10x the number listed in his PS3 fan boy article. The only thing that is seriously backwards here, is the authors ability to check facts before making incorrect statements!
For those that want the truth:
That is a far cry from 20!
Yeah I noticed that and was like, oh this guys just a doosh, I was actually going to post what you did but you beat me to it :)
For the classic games you own. But nothing to do with your next-gen expirience.
This is a funny story. I also heard in one of Sony's BC testing that 40 PS2 games couldn't run on the 'god-like' PS3. Sony talk out of their @sses!
this article says that, it specifically says that sony rejected the method when it wouldn't support 40 titles, and so this would mean that problem has been fixed.
Please read the article before you post
I grew up with Nintendo since the regular NES so their B/C is more appealing to me. As huge of a fan I am of Xbox. Neither Sony or Microsoft have accompolished anything near Nintendo, yet alone been in the videogame biz as long!
i am happy cause i missed on alot of final fantasy games(1-9) so i will be playing them with warhawk, UT 2007, DMC, metal gear and heavenly sword.
I thought MGS was slated for 07 release?
Because of the small library of games. After a while though, as the amount of games increase, people start to forget about it. I can remember playing Halo 2 every now and then around the first few months on the 360's launch. But slowly as GRAW, Oblivion, and BFME 2 have come out, I have no interest in playing old Xbox games.
i was just passing this along. what did i do wrong?
Nodoze i didnt type that i was just passing along something i found while searching google. im sorry to give incorrect information i wont submit any more news.
I agree with 13. But I also have to say that BC is important and thats why I always like the PS2 and Im interesting on 3. Backwards is so important that even Nintendo want its Wii play old NES games. Even after an overdose of nextgen Im goig to have fun with my old games, thats the reason I bougth them. Even better could be if the new hardware could improve the old software. Just imagine playing your old games with improvements in graphics. I hope the Ps3 could improve, maybe with some anti-aliasing and texture definition, my collection of over 70 PS2 games. something that the 360 didnt do to my collection of over 40 Xbox games.
NJ is a racist liar and multiple account user who censors posters against him.
Well isn't it nice that no 360 owner votes lame by such a great news for the PS console. As PS fanboys always vote lame on 360 articles like this one.
I am glad actually that you can play some PS1 or PS2 games when the console launches. The PS2 games certainly look better then most of the ingame footage of PS3 games that's around right now. Only game for launch that looks interesting is Heavenly Sword if you ask me. But is that a system seller?
i dont think heavenly sword is a system seller but im not buying ps3 cause of one game. im buying it cause of warhawk and heavenly sword. i know when people see that i said warhawk there probably like what in the world. but i believe warhawk is going to be great it just seems like a fun game even though i havent played it acourse im just talk about all the recent videos not that 05 video.
