@VariantAEC "Sony could possibly release some sort of app that can be used to launch PS2 games on PS3s that have no backwards compatibility.
That is pretty much the only possible option I can see."

that would be better than nothing.

@kickerconspiracy i don't have a PC.
@FuzzyDuck well 6 PS2s over 10 years basically. about 4 of them were phats and 2 slims.
@lolercopter i've actually purchased Max Payne PS2 from PSN which is the EU version and it is really terrible. its one of the worst ports i've ever played and issues such as crippling framerate really do ruin the gameplay.

Rockstar should be ashamed of themselves not only for their porting of the game in 2001 but also re-releasing the game in its original state. would it really have been hard for Rockstar to put up the PC version instead.

@sfp_noodle the slims are just as unreliable. my first one i got around 2006 pretty much died out due to a laser issue were the power would just die out regularly so had got another around 2007 but to be fair the second slim has lasted for 5 years now since only last month broke.

but i refuse to buy it again as i'm running out of space so don't be rude retard you don't know my situation so hush your mouth. ta.

@Farzlepot @kickerconspiracy i'm not buying another PS2. this is what i'm getting at. i've had like 6 PS2s break on me including my current one and i refuse to get another.

why should i get another PS2 when PS3 is capable of being 2 consoles in one saving me space.

hope this bites Sony in the backside next gen. backwards compatibility is a reason for people to upgrade to your next console.

@Farzlepot this is what pisses me off. people saying it was done because for costs. it wasn't. it was because people were playing games like MGS3 and Vice City on the PS3 instead of the overhyped launch PS3 games.

if it was too expensive for them they shouldn't have put it in the first place. if they wanted to cut costs they should have removed the blu ray drive or teh CELL instead.

now i have a broken PS2 slim and around 50 PS2 games that are worthless now.

@Farzlepot so its hardware right ? so Sony have no excuse to put the PS2 BC chip into the rumoured new PS3 slim.

@jabberwoky "And thats why I have row upon row upon row upon row of 360 games, and not a single ps3 game. And thats why it makes sense if there is bc, to by 720 and not ps4. And thats how you lose market share. Have a nice day sony."

you pretty much nailed it. removing PS2 backwards compatibility was the biggest mistake Sony ever did. people with stacks of PS2 games at the start of the gen were looking at the PS3 but realised PS3 wouldn't play PS2 games so upgrading to PS3 would be pointless so most jumped ship to the 360 and Wii.

keeping PS2 BC would have meant they could have sold the PS2 games on the store which would have helped Sony out big time as PS3 was first very expensive but Sony didn't look at the bigger picture.

@FuzzyDuck i know enough. the so called almighty TEH CELL could emulate the PS2 games i'm sure. i don't really give a shit how this stuff works. ffs i just want to replay my PS2 games as another PS2 has just crapped out on me.

what's the point in having PS1 emulation but not PS2 ? totally pointless but this is Sony. they pretty much handed their 70% of their market to MS and Nintendo.

@Farzlepot okay the DVD comment was wrong but i still think PS2 games are capable of being run on any PS3. look at the 360. the 360 has no components from the original Xbox yet some Xbox1 games work. okay most run like crap but some work pretty well like the GTA games which even look better on the 360.

@Thedaus well that would be alot better wouldn't it as it would mean we wouldn't have to rebuy games we already own. sort of like the 360 used to do with emulation and give updates to games that weren't compatible.

@Farzlepot theres no difference from the download off the store to the actual PS2 disc. they are running the same data and any BS that its special programming needed is just that. BS.

@sfp_noodle what i'm saying is its funny how PS3 recognises and plays DVDs but can't play PS2 games which are made from DVD.

any PS3 is capable of playing PS2 games as the PS3 even recognises it is PS2 games. Sony just need to stop being greedy and release a firmware update to allow the PS3 to read the disc or at the very least sell it on PSN so we can use our bloody discs.

i honestly don't know how anyone can defend the lack of backwards compatibility. it doesn't affect you in anyway.

some of the best PS2 games are unknown games that will never get a HD remake.

its funny how easily Sony have tricked gamers to think full PS2 emulation isn't possible.

how ironic DVDs work on PS3 but PS2 games which were on DVD don't work.

work it out. Sony can make a firmware update right now to enable backwards compatibility for all PS3s right this second but want you to buy them all over again dispite paying 40 for them a decade ago.

i'm getting sick of you Vita owners acting so entitled. " i want this" " i want that" blah blah.

its like in every game announcement article theres at least a few people begging for a Vita version. just stfu. Vita is a flop thats why no one is porting their games accross.

How is PS Vita doing in Japan?

spacewarrior

6 years ago

@Dismiss how is the 3DS not a good handheld ? if we go by power than the original Xbox would be better than the PS2 but PS2 is actually better because of the games.

the 3DS has Mario 3D land which is similar to Galaxy. then you have DS backwards compatibility not like the Vita where all your PSP games are turned worthless and you have to rebuy or only have a digital version. the 3DS actually lets you use a DS copy not a download.

@electrolite wrong. for the first few years it wasn't even selling well but after a few years it exploded into massive sales everyone had to have one all during the iphone era.

its because 3DS is a mix of hardcore and pick up and play gameplay that it can survive.

no one has time to play full console experiences on a handheld. people play handhelds for experiences they can't get on a console. Vita is essentially a PS3 with toned down PS3 ports whereas games for 3DS are built from the ground up taking advantage of the 3DS hardware.
