Playstation 3 can play old Playstation games, but Playstation 2 games are not compatible. You can load some playstation 2 games using the hard drive and an emulator, but not all.

Convert PlayStation games to Xbox games?

it is simple impossible Games are not converted they are designed to be exclusively used for the system they are designed for.

Are Playstation games compatible with Playstation 3?

Some of the titles work, and the PS3 is advertised as able to play PS1 games Yes! EVERY PS3 is capable of playing PSX games, while only some can play PS2 games. Your manual will be able to tell you if this is possible. The original model of the PS3 does but the later models do not. The PS3 plays select PS1 game titles. That is there way of saying it plays them, but don't sue us for false advertising if a certain game does not play. All PS3 are supposed to be able to play select titles of the PlayStation games, while only the 4 USB port early PS3s were supposed to play PS2 games No, you can only play Ps2 and Ps3 games on the PlayStation 3. That depends on what sort of PS3 system you have. If you have the 60GB version, yes. If 40BG, no. the above answer is correct about PS2 games only; for the PS or original PlayStation games, the games of many titles play without a problem on all PS3 models Yes...they will..but some ps1 games will tend to freeze if your ps1 games are scratched. Some PS1 titles can be played on all PS3 according too Sony PlayStation Yes the PS3 was designed to play PS1 game titles
