    Sweet! Now I hate myself more for not having a downgradable PS3. >_<

    By the way, ANY PS3? Can the hardware of the slims handle this?

    • freeeeeeeeeeeeeeeee says:

      yes it will work (if these models are ever hacked) because the ps3 recognizes these files as ps2 classics downloaded from the PSN

      • kuagelo says:

        I see. But are PS2 classics somehow “dumbed down” in terms of content/quality?

        • deciuz says:

          Not all games run well with this method. Some games don’t run at all because they need the original hardware, but from posts of users it runs obviously more than what the PSN Offers. Pretty sure they do 480P, only Gran Turismo 4/Tourists Trophy can do 1080i.

    MEANS: WHO CARES? until downgrade for OFW or CFW installs on 3.56 to 4.40 or higher!!!

    • RedHawk02 says:

      Means: Stop bitching, you’re fault you missed the CFW. It took 5 years so you had all the time to be actively following the PS3 scene. Just go on ebay or craigslist and buy a PS3 that is modded.

    Not anyone can just rip these games. My computer I got 2 years ago won’t read ps1 or ps2 discs. My older computer that died did though. It’s not gonna be as bad as the few drives that read Wii and Gamecube disc. With GC, PS1 and below, I’d just download from emuparadise.

    What happens when you run PS2 games on a non PS2 model, like the PS3 Slim and Super Slim? Does it boot but some games just lag hard and what not?

  6. JeoWay says:

    I am talking to Spewfr right now, and he said there is a problem in the GUI he made, he said for me to tell you guys he is fixing it right now. I will right a post on /talk about it.

    Kingdom Hearts!

  8. Mr. Shizzy says:

    Great news… just sucks that most people have no access to cfw for their PS3..

  9. traveller says:

    Are there any sites posting compatibility result lists?

  10. NNNRT says:

    It’s great I updated to 4.40 CFW & not OFW. :D

  11. Niceneasy92 says:

    So wait a minute… it only takes an algorithm to make ps2 games playable? The classics Sony releases hasn’t been re-coded or anything to work on ps3’s? Just the normal game and an algorithm?

  12. Alnitak says:

    My God, it’s finally happened. I have Kingdom Hearts 2 Final Mix running on my PS3. For those who try to do this, your usb flash drive needs to be in the right-hand most port when you run ReActPSN.

  13. Skars says:

    Still no news about CFW on PS3 with OFW out of the box above 3.55 ?

    Slim 3000 ?

  14. BahamutBBob says:

    This is good news. I will wait for the day when the PS3 keys are discovered (like the PSP keys) so we can launch homebrew and hopefully PS2 games without having CFW.

  15. aAa says:

    Is this real or April’s fool. Would be really good April’s fool.

  16. Skars says:

    The tool from Spewfr allows anyone even withour CFW to run PS2 games straight from XMB? In my case, CECH-3001-A OFW 4.40.

    Thanks!
