PS2 on PS3 (PAL backward compatibility)


C Nut!

Recommended Posts

I had previously noted some of the offically listed 'emulation ratings' for PS2 games running on the european 1.60 PS3 firmware, and so decided to compare them to what is now listed for the 1.70 one. Here's it typed up. Basically, it has three sections for unchanged, regressed, and improved titles. Some stuff may be slighty off/missing, but there you go:

there's a uniquely Sony reduction in compatability with certain titles.

Is that fair? New builds of MAME [amongst other emulators] often break some titles in the process of adding/improving other games. It's often the case of 'two steps forward, one backward'. Of course over time, the trend should be fewer and fewer broken games, and more and more perfectly-emulated releases.

Doesn't bode well for the alleged upscaled PS2 experience, does it?

As I understand things, all PS2 and PS1 games already output progressive, if your PS3 output is set to allow it. It's not all bad. And there's not that many broken games there, either. On a lot of 1-star games, they seem to work fine. It's obviously not as good, but it's not that bad. And there's a few other additions, too - some of the Ratchet and Clank games now work, Amplitude works, Gradius V works, etc.

Okay, so it's not like it's something Sony have just discovered to annoy me. However the 360 manages to boot games with different emulation profiles in order to avoid these sorts of problems, it's surprising Sony didn't think of including a similar mode which allowed a 1.7 PS3 to boot as a 1.6 PS2 where necessary to get a game to run.

With Sony counting so much on MGS4 being a success I would have thought they'd want to keep all the prequels running without problems. Doesnt bode well.

I'm going to rashly assume that they'll get it fixed for shortly before MGS4 is released, or put a Metal Gear compatibility patch on the MGS4 disc. I also still believe MGS4 is coming out in October in Europe and will have a full Japanese dub option...

Rez at 3 stars along with Canis Canem Edit, God Hand and all the Prince Of Persia's. This has been a good update.

It's a real shame that the Metal Gear Solid games are out of luck though, but as I've said before, if they can get stuff like God Of War 1 & 2 running perfectly, it should only be a matter of tweaking to get eventual full compatibility, and I'm sure that's what they're aiming for by the time it's used on NTSC machines.

Just a question for anyone out there with a PS3, when Sony say a game runs with "no notable issues", have you noticed the list is fairly accurate, or does every game have a few minor glitches. Also, have you noticed any issues with running games through 60htz mode, and FMV sequences screwing up?

I've noticed a glitch along the left-hand edge of an FMV in Spider-Man 2, and some inside out models on avatars in Amplitude (both on 1.7.) I tried God Hand on 1.6, and saw nothing wrong at all, although I think 60Hz might have been a disaster. That's the extent of my experience.

well i've been playing okami, and metal slugs' 3 & 5 on my ps3 and they work fine apart from some stuttery fmv. played the first 7 hours or so of okami.

can't quite see why they'd warrant a 1* unless something nasty happens some way into them

PES6 is now at **/minor issues; I'm guessing that's related to network play, as I've found nothing wrong at all since the update.

San Andreas is playable, with the only issue I've found is that at certain junctions (and particularly the drive-thru near Grove St) the cars fly by in procession at the speed of sound, and then disappear. Although if you're in the way, you don't seem to get hit.

MS and Sony are tackling emulation in different ways. MS release game specific emulation, targeting high profile games. This has a side effect that the same emulator for one title will work on several others, which increases the BC list slightly each time and is the reason their BC list is a mixture of AAA and shite. This method guarantees certain games work, but it doesn't aim to emulate the Xbox chipset, so there is no chance that all Xbox games will play on the 360 in the future.

Sony are aiming to emulate the hardware, not individual games. Their goal would be to emulate the EE as closely as possible, which would give a very high compatibility rate. And unlike MS who only update the BC every 3 quarter, hopefully each (monthly?) firmware update from Sony will increase the emulation accuracy.

BC via emulation looked to be a disaster for Sony prior to the PAL launch, and although the 1.60 compatibility rate was higher than many expected, was still disappointing. But with 1.70, only 3 of my 15 PS2 games don't run on the PS3, and of the 12 that work, only a couple have really noticeable issues. I've still got a few Xbox games that I doubt will ever work on the 360.

The systems aren't as different as you make out, IMO. The only difference is that Microsoft focusses on making sure that each version of the emulator provides as close to the original experience of a particular game as possible (hence the "profiles" metaphor) while Sony focusses on making each version of the emulator as general as possible. I don't think there's anything technical stopping Sony from having multiple versions of the emulator on there, except perhaps some system to check the disk it's trying to load. With luck it's something they'll try in future, because it should allow them more total compatability than a single emulator alone.

I mean, it may be that the most general emulator would - for some technical reason - have inescapable emulation difficulties when it came to the MGS franchise. Maybe they wrote the renderer in such a strange way that emulating the PS2 effectively would simply be impossible. In such a situation it would be madness to step back and start searching for a more compatable emulator which may not exist - they would be better off patching the hole with a game-specific emulator.

I also wonder about the 3* compatability.

I tried playing Midway arcade collection 3 yesterday (I really like stun runner) and the game plays too fast. Way to fast to be controllable. yet this is a game that apparently has no known issues.

I reckon they just went down the list and made up the star ratings as they went along.

I tried playing Midway arcade collection 3 yesterday (I really like stun runner) and the game plays too fast. Way to fast to be controllable. yet this is a game that apparently has no known issues.

I reckon they just went down the list and made up the star ratings as they went along.

Well that's the thing - surely this star ratings bollocks is subjective. To me a game is either emulated with no known issues, or it isn't emulated - there is no middleground.

That's true, I was talking about its visuals though. Maybe they'll support the trance vibrator in a future firmware upgrade?

It does support the trance vibrater even the PAL copy which never supported it on the PS2 (apparently). also if you het an adapter to turn PS2 into USB you can get rumble on PS2 games.
