    This might have been asked before, no I am 100% sure this is asked before, but you never know it with Sony.

    I have a non-hacked PS3 can it play PS1 games from normal retail disks?(For example I have Finl Fantasy VII retail copy can my PS3 play that one?)

    Yes it should do so fine.

    Also you should be banned.

    PS1 - ALL PS3 models can play discs & downloads
    PS2 - ONLY 20, 60 GB models have (near?) full compability. 40 & 80 gigs have some. Slim models (regardless of hard drive) CAN NOT PLAY PS2 DISCS.

    I shouldn't have to explain what models can play PS3 games.

    If I recall NTSC models had initially better PS2 compatibility, yet remain restricted against playback of 50hz encoded DVD or bluray movies (even with correct region code and compatible TV).
