I was wondering about this.

I have a 40 gig PS3. I am wanting to get Fire Pro Wrestling Returns (which is on the PS2). Does anyone know if it works on the 40 gig PS3?

Well...also, how do I know what, if any, games works on the PS3?

Thanks

No, none of the 40GB versions have backward compatibility.  The 60GB version has hardware BC, and the old 80GB version has software BC (which supports less games than hardware BC).  The 80GB version that is now being released has no BC. It's very frustrating for people contemplating a purchase in the near future (like myself) who want BC.

I'm cranky today, so you get my English lesson, Teggy.

Less is used when you're talking about an unquantifiable amount.  For example, "Less Filling."

Fewer is used when the quantity can be defined with a number.  For example, "Fewer calories"  or "Fewer games."

There is a site to check compatibility (http://www.us.playstation.com/Support/CompatibleStatus), but, yeah, you're out of luck with the 40GB.

Dragon Quest 8 has sound problems, Metal Gear 2 has sound issues sometimes as well. Those were the first two I tried and both had minor issues which didn't exactly instill me with a lot of confidence in it. If you go to the compatabilty chart thingy you will see tons of minor glitches for a most games that you type in. I'm also having issues with it displaying PS2 games correctly on my screen. Apparently this is tied to me having a CRT HDTV as opposed to a LCD.
