    PS2 Compatibility List (for non-backward compatible PS3)

    Postby GreeDi » Tue Sep 20, 2011 2:52 pm

    Hi everyone!
    I don't know if this is a good idea, but recently I've got a few requests about how does PS2 games work on non-backward compatible PS3 with Cobra. So here it is! May be someone will find this list useful.
    All test was performed on model CECH-2501A. And I must admit, that you can't save your progress, because emulator doesn't support memcards. And also (for slim models only) it's necessary to connect controller via usb-cord.
    Watch my channel on youtube.


    DESCRIPTION
    Game title - works fine, you can play it.
    Game title - works, but slow or/and with bugs. In most cases you can't play comfortable.
    Game title - goes in-game, but it's too-o-o luggy and buggy to play.
    Game title - goes into menu, but in-game can't be reached.
    Game title - doesn't work at all
    Image - video of this game's performance is available

    Actually, when I loaded up Minority Report on my slim it did recognize a virtual PS2 mem card. Never got a chance to fully test it as it didn't get past the first cutscene though.

    shinintendo, I can definitely say that there is no reason for you to buy Cobra specially for those games, because dongle DOES NOT support saves!!! So I can test xenosaga, but in my opinion Cobra (on non-backward compatible PS3) and PS2 jRPG are a waste of time and money.
