The 80GB PS3 model released in 2007 is partially compatible with PS2 games, using software emulation rather than hardware support. Still, it can run quite a few PS2 titles!

I've got a 60GB PS3 and can confirm it plays most PS2 games like a charm. Nothing beats the original hardware though for that nostalgia kick!

Only the original 20GB and 60GB models of the PS3 released in North America and Japan are fully backwards compatible with PS2 games. They have the extra hardware inside to run them!

Hot take: Get a PS2 for PS2 games. PS3 backwards compatibility is kinda overrated.
