The Sony PlayStation 3 (PS3) is similar to other seventh-generation consoles in that it can play the games of the systems that preceded it. The PS3 can play both PlayStation 1 (PS1) and PlayStation 2(PS2) games. However, the PS2 games cannot be played from a PS2 disc. They must be downloaded from the PlayStation Store and installed on the PS3's hard drive. With enough funds, downloading these PS2 games from the PlayStation Store is an easy process.

Skill level:


  1. 1

    Turn on your PS3. Select the "PlayStation Store" option on the PS3's main menu.

  2. 2

    Select "Browse Games." You'll see a list of both PS1 and PS2 games, among others.

  3. 3

    Select the game you would like to download with the "X" button, then select the "Confirm Download" option to begin the download. If you do not have sufficient funds in your PlayStation wallet, you will be asked to add more. Use the information from your debit or credit card to add funds and continue the download.

  4. 4

    Exit the PlayStation Store once the download is complete. You can find your game under the "Games" section of the PS3's main menu. Select the game with the "X" button to begin playing.
