    No, it will not. You have the system that plays only ps1 & ps3 games.

    Only some PS3s are able to play PS2 games, but to a limited extent. The latest PS3 Models do not play PS2 games.

    IDK why Sony didn't implement PS2 Compatibility on all of the PS3s.

    To cut the cost on the Emotion engine. The first models either achieved compatibility by using the built in engine or by software emulation (which was shoddy at best on some games).

    Well, its being rumored that software emulation will be released for all in a firmware update next year.

    You have one of the early 80gb models; the ones that use software emulation to run PS2 games.

    I see... well not that I would actually play any PS2 games on a PS3, but just figured, it would've been nice to have.
