Palgn quickly test out some of the games.
The following is a list of the games they tested out on their new PAL Australian PlayStation 3 with 1.6 firmware. They looked at what Sony has said about these games and then looked at what their tests have revealed. They tried to test a wide variety of games and it's possible that they missed some of the game errors, so this guide isn't necessarily highly reflective of the full gameplay experience with a given title.
SCES-51719 AFL Premiership 2006:
What Sony Says: Will not work at all.
What our tests reveal: They lie! "AFL Premiership 2005" appears on the list of compatible titles, but AFL Premiership 2006 plays without issues at all.
SCES-53950 F1 06:
What Sony Says: No known issues
What our tests reveal: This game runs fine without any problems at all.
SLES-54002 FlatOut 2:
What Sony Says: Should play with noticable issues.
What our tests reveal: There are two versions of FlatOut 2 listed on the backwards compatibility website and unfortunately we've been stuck with the version that is supposed to play with noticable issues. It's recommended that all PlayStation 2 titles are played in 50hz but with FlatOut 2 we decided to take a gamble and run the game in 60hz. Despite reportedly having issues we didn't encounter any at all, the game ran at full speed.
SLES-54623 Grand Theft Auto Vice City Stories:
What Sony Says: Works with noticable issues
What our tests reveal:We didn't encounter anything out of the ordinary, the FMV's all displayed fine and we didn't encounter any slowdown.
