I gave up debating wether to get my red ring of death XBOX360 mended and bought a PS3 instead. And now I just wonder if anyone knows if PS2 games run on it?

Btw, I'm so happy with it I'm never going to look back.... and the kids got one just in case I get an urge for some Oblivion laugh.gif

I believe it does, if your eggbox is under 3 years old it can get fixed for free.

Or buy an arcade for £99 and bolt on your old hard drive.

Hm. I think I remember them at first being backward compatible with the playstation 2, but that it was later removed from new-made consoles. I'm not 100% sure though. So if you bought it new, it's probably not backwards compatible with the PS2 sad.gif

The first models hat a complete PS2 inside smile.gif EmotionEngine (Main CPU) and Graphic Synthesizer (GPU) were included smile.gif

Then they cut out the PS2 CPU and with the next revision the PS2 GPU, so as far as i know, i would not guarantee that a "modern" PS3 is backwards compatible...

New PS3s don't play PS2 games. I don't miss them anyways smile.gif

Funny you should mention Oblivion, I ordered it a month ago but it never arrived in the mail sad.gif
I'm bussy with MW2 though, and a friend lent me Fallout 3, which also seems nice though I just played a couple hours.

Ah ok, probably not then. smile.gif

I've been glaring at Fallout 3 for a bit too.. I used to play Fallout when it came out like 10 years ago. Liked it a lot so it might be my next title to get.

About the 360, they won't fix it for free. Story is that I bought one when it first came out, sent it to MS via UPS when it broke. FoC. They sent me a new one back instead. This one broke and it's happened after the withdraw so they claim about 80-100 Euro to have it mended. Can't recall exactly but I think it was 80 excl shipping.
The arcade is available at 150 Euro for a "refurbished" model. Same warranty, someone elses old junk. A brand cost 170-180 Euro.

But judging from the bad experience with broken Xbox's I hope I found a great gaming machine and Blu ray player in one. Was on the look for a blu ray anyway.

Like everyone said, newer ones don't. I have one of the originals, I got the MGS4 Bundle, and it is BC with my PS2 games. If you manage to buy one that is BC you shouldn't have any problems. It also is BC with PS1 games as well, I still play all my final fantasy's on it with no problem. It is more sensitive though, Scratches that you could get away with on PS1 or PS2 might not fly on PS3. My FFIX disc 3 has some scratches on it and during one video it skips and pauses, and eventually flys through the entire cinema on that part. Other than that though, it is amazing.

If you get it, then you HAVE to get Heavy Rain, I swear, you will be blown away. The game is 100% original and 100% OMG laugh.gif
