I’m thinking of buying a PS3 but can I use my controllers and Guitar Hero guitar I have for my PS2 with it?

Also does it play PSone and PS2 games?

    The PS3 doesn’t play PS1 / PS2 games. Also you can’t use the controllers because the PS3 only has USB slots and the controllers are wireless

  2. Beep Beep Meow says:

    There’s no slots to plug in PS2 peripherals unless they use USB, which most don’t. You can use USB adapters for Playstation controllers like this: but there’s no guarantee your stuff will work perfectly or at all.

    u can if u got the old scul ps3 but u cn’t in the slim one

    The PS1 and PS2 controllers use an interface the PS3 doens’t have- it’s all wireless and possibly USB, from what I’ve seen. Also I hear tell that PS1 and 2 games, though they’ll play on a PS3, look horrible- the graphics don’t get rendered properly.Though not having been allowed near the one PS3 in the house, I can’t confirm this, only going on what I’ve read.

    If you’re looking to buy a Playstation 3 and Modern Warfare 3, then this bundle is a match made in Heaven. The stand-alone 320GB PS3 system retails for three hundred brand new, while MW3 is sixty. So it’s like getting a free game, but that’s where your benefits end. The console is your basic PS3 (not that that’s a bad thing!) and the game is the standard edition. You still get one controller and no HDMI cable. And unlike last years PlayStation 3 160GB Call of Duty: Black Ops Bundle, there is no free map pack voucher. In fact, the only thing custom is the box!
