    Final Fantasy 13 has came out and I am thinking about buying a ps3 just for that game.

    The deciding factor: I have read posts about a year or two ago that they have created a method for loading ps2 games via USB using an HDD. If I can do this with a new ps3, I will buy a ps3. There is no way I am buying a PS3 if I can't play my Ps2 games.

    I read a million posts, all dating almost a year ago about Ps2 iso loading which are not all up to date. Google has failed me to find a site that is up to date with ps3 mods. Can someone give me an answer that is up to date or direct me to a location in which I can use to find my answer (please god an answer that is within a month)

    Thanks in advance,
    Z


    In a nutshell, I found the other consoles discussion on GBA temp... [​IMG]

    Today, I spent a couple hours looking at various websites for PS3 information. When I just about gave up hope I went to the GBAtemp boards for one last fight. As soon as I posted a topic in regards to my question, I found a whole forum on the same GBAtemp boards with all the answers I had. Knowing the GBAtemp community, I am going to get cooked by its users. FML

    The PS3 isn't hackable just yet, stick with a PS2 for ISO loading and use the PS3 genuinely. Or just hack a Xbox360.

    Fail, you need a backwards compatible PS3 for that (any 20,60, and the 4usb port 80GB - 2 usb port 80gb doesn't play ps2), none of the 2USB Port Phat PS3's or any of the Slim PS3s are backwards compatible with PS2 games.

    How do we know he won't get a backwards compatible model?
