Is there a way to run PSX Backups?
is there a way to run PSX Backups or even Original Games with another Region Code with a PS3?
not quite as of yet
not quite yet.. although, i think i may have read something regarding this in development.
Here are some threads on this topic, the second one may be the development he is referring to:
just a question about it : can 80gb us ps3 play ps2 games ?
Right now the only way to play ps1 backups or different region games is to open the ps3 to do a disc swap. there is also some ps1 homebrew that should work with a disc swap. thereīs the yaroze ps1 homebrew and have also heard of an NES emulator but have never tried it.
The ps1 emulator for ps2 is on standby for the time being. The author, ffgriever, is working on another project, so itīs on hold for now. there is a beta but only a few trusted people have it. the info i have is that itīs not really playable at the moment. slow framerate and no sound. usb loading is supported though which is the only way we would be able to run it on the ps3 and because itīs ps2 homebrew, you would need a PS3 with ps2 BC to run it.
