i just got a ps3 and my ps2 games don't work on it. I put the disc in and it comes up on the home page. I click on it and the screen is just black with flickering white flashes. Then it says it is not compatable on ps3! How do i resolve this? Thanks

If you have the US version of the PS3 you have to download the PS2 Format from the PS store it is free.

Any other version of the PS3 i dont know

Maybe it's one of the many PS2 games that dont work?

Remember, European PS3's dont have the PS2 emotion engine, therefore cannot play every PS2 game.

This will be resolved in future firware updates

There are compatibility issues with GTA, but seemingly only on the FMV sequences where it can get a bit fuzzy.

I'm guessing they may sort a lot of these issues through firmware updates.
