    OK, i dont have a PS3 but i do have an idea on how to run PS2 backups on a PS3 without a MOD chip

    1. Download Linux (Fedora Core 5) and install it in the PS3 HD (or whatever you do to run Linux on a PS3)

    2. Download a PS2 Linux base Emulator called PS2emu

    3. Upload the backup to the PS3 HD and save it in the OS

    4. Then you should be able run the backup games using PS2emu

    In theory it sould work, you run Linux, then open PS2emu, then open the Game

    ** give me some feed back please **

    i dont think that would work. from linux they limit your access to the video ram.

    ok, if thats the case, Linux is a Open OS, so couldnt someone just re-program the OS to be more compatible with the hardware.

    Also the PS3 only has 256megs of ram. Once you run linux and an emulator I doubt there would be enough memory left to run the game. Plus I dont think there is PS2 emulator that complete works right. Most games dont work and PS2emu was last updated in 2004 so newer games wouldnt work on it

    it would never work even if u would recode linux, cuz the ps3's hypervisor blocks the access to the more powerful parts of the system.

    And the best known ps2 emu is pcsx2 by the way and even that is still not enjoyable.

    well, it doesnt matter when the EMU was released for the compatibility issues and maybe you still could play the classic SNES EMUS or even GBC EMUS

    does the PS3 have enought RAM for that?

    No, PS3 has 512 megs of RAM. That can be run together if need be. They just need to get the OS to use both. I still don't get why people can't see that while the PS3 RAM is seperated, it can still be used jointly.

    The main memory is 256meg of XDR ram running at 3.2ghz. The other 256 is GDDR3 Vram (video ram) running at 700mhz.

    Heres what I think, if some would rip the swap magic program from the swap magic disc, or figure out how that works and then convert that to something to you can put on the hard drive to work kind of like an .exe file, the you run that program while you have your ps2 game in the playstation, then hit X and it should run the game. I think that would be the easiest way to play PS2 back-ups on the PS3.
