    ps3 40GB PS3 PS2 full compatible

    The 40GB PS3 does fully support all PS2 games and plays them without any problems. It is just not unlocked for the retail consoles. One hint for the sooner or later release of a patch which allows full software emulation is the unlocked PS2 games support in the newest debug and factory firmwares.

    Here a video of a 40GB PS3 running in factory mode:

    It's fake. They don't even bother showing the model tag on the back of the PS3, which they WOULD have done for a good fake or real one. The fact they don't show it shows this to be a BAD fake.

    Even if it was a 40G PS3, we aren't shown that it was even the PS3 hooked to the monitor. The easiest way to fake this video is to have two PS3s with one just off camera. When he puts the disc in the first, someone else puts the same disc in the off-screen PS3 and TADA! The PS3 is "playing" the disc.

    As I said, a really BAD fake.

    I hope this isn't a fake so I can put up my ps2, but I don't believe it until it happens.

    If this is real, then surely this means that the latest firmware supports PS2 but has yet to be released .
    it doesnt mean the ability is restricted, but simply not yet available as an update

    if.

    this is easy to fake, the console on show is a 40GB or at least the matt trim is from a 40GB, but it is very simple to hook up another ps3 out of view

    also the setting is so poor i doubt it is reality.

    lol whats the point in sony locking it? remember what reaction they got when the European PS3 were released with 'reduced' compatibility? locking ps2 bc on a capable console?

    i seriously doubt sony would do that and i doubt the video is real.

    I already talked to Mathieulh about this before, and he said that the 40GB debug units could play PS2 games, so I see no reason why a 40GB in service mode couldn't either if the PS2 emulator is still there...

    debug units most likely have everything in them.

    there is not a chance that current 40GB consoles have the ability to play PS2 games. It makes no sense to remove a paid for feature from use.

    If it is possible via software then it will arrive in a firmware update in the short future

    Well i think that the video is fake, but the Concept and the Dream of having a PS2 emulator on all PS3 models is real in the video.

    All we need is a firmware update that "supposedly" Sony will make
