i traded all my games in apart from all the ps2 gta's and max payne so im not as bothered about this as is used to be, plus i have a ps2, id just rather play my ps2 games on my ps3 but, for the wireless controller, the slighty improved graphics smoothing.

i only have a big bulky madcatz or some other brand controller for my ps2 and i cant stand using it lol.

but according to sonys blog: http://share.blog.us.playstation.com/

which is for ps3 users to voice their opinions on how to improve the system, BC, is the second most popular demand

sonys answer is always, "we're looking into this"

hopefully sometime soon we will have a firmware update that enables BC, or hopefully rockstar release a GTA ps2 HD collection for ps3 lol.

also when reading on sonys website about BC, it said that ps1 games are supported for BC, i wasnt aware of this apart from the ps1 classics on the store, but their site suggested you could play hard copies.

yea you can play PS1 games... i've done that numerous times... but, no PS2 games... and i don't think we'll ever see BC again... it's more of a marketing move because, the PS2 is still doing well and sony knows that they can re-release their classics in upgraded HD and add trophies... they've done it with some call of duty games, the god of war collection, and this fall the sly cooper collection...

wouldn't you pay $60 for the PS2 GTA series re-released with updated graphics and trophy support?? i know i would in a split second... sony just sees it as an opportunity to make more money... and the other side of the coin is, most PS3 users still have their PS2 with games... i don't mind breaking it out every now and then when i want to play a classic...

i pay for the ps2 gta series if it was updated with hd, not that fussed about trophy's but, its all down to rockstar, do you really think they would go through gta 3, vice, and sa and update them, it would take time and effort away from making a new gta ?

im not sure if they even bother making lcs and vcs ps2 ports into hd, but it would be nice if they did also.

i still have my ps2, id just rather play it on the ps3 lol. cause i hate the bulky controller i have for ps2 lol.

As for BC I don't see that happening with the PS3 so I'll have to buy myself a copy of GTAIII, Vice City and San Andreas together with a PS2 if I'm to ever play them again.

I have the original 60GB PS3, so i have PS1 & PS2 capabilities biggrin.gif. I still play GTA 3, VC, SA on it, on occasions. SA looks terrible when up-scaled to HD though for some reason, where-as III and VC look beautiful.

All i had to do was download some file when i bought my PS3, and it activated the PS1 & PS2 usage!
GTA5
WTF DID YOU SAY SLY COOPER THATS MY FAV. GAME ALL OF TIME [color="#FF8C00"][/color]

Also, is it worth me checking PS Store to see if the BC addon is there?

Like i said. SA looks terrible when up-scaled to HD though for some reason, where-as III and VC look beautiful. Some games look fine when upscaled, some don't. I'm not sure why. If anything i would have expected SA to look better because it was newer. But it just seems Pixelated rather than upscaled.

The upgrade wasn't on the PSN store btw. I got it from the official Playstation website. and put it on a USB stick. This was ages ago though, it might not be available any more... Have a look anyway, you should find it.

I found this btw:

man, me and a buddy were playing rally cross (free PSN+ game) for a couple of hours last night... i am actually surprised at how much fun that is with another person... the fact that we kept crashing and flipping the vehicles made for a hilarious session... it's not like we were any good but, we both had such a hard time staying on all fours that we couldn't stop laughing the whole time...

a few drinks, some good weed, and horrible driving skills on both sides made this event epic laugh.gif...
