I would like to point out that I've gotten some games to run this way.

If you have a PSX2USB adapter (they used to sell these at radioshack, afaik they are now unattainable), you can use a PS2 controller on the ps3. (The ps3 sees the controller, and the adapter supports dualshock 2.)

The games I tried were:
Odin Sphere (Slowdown, graphical glitches)
Silent Hill 2 (Slowdown)
DDR MAX (Major Slowdown)
DDR MAX2 (Major Slowdown)

Once I get out of class today, I will test more games.

that would be awesome. if they could get a psp emu working, there's a few games on that i'd like to play, namely thug2 remix (if you can't tell, i'm a tony hawk fan)

Any chance of emulating PSP, like the Cobra dongle? or is that a totally different thing/method? Sadly Cobra doesn't support the new PSP games, only old ones, I wonder if this could be improved with a more "open-source" project.

if you can do this without FSM i'd definitely try it! I think somehow, someone has to merge old and new together, the old to force it to play and the new for better compatibility. I will one day play thps3 to thaw on ps2... thps3 and 4 on psx/gba bite

I mean, thps4 on psx is surprisingly playable for it being a game ported to psx.

I'll give it a try. First I need to find a PS2 game disk. Finally I'll be able to play my Burnout games again.

I tried loading PS2 games without Factory mode but it just shower me that "unknown data" logo and said PS2 games couldn't work with my PS3. I also tried using the controller with the USB charger in both slots but that didn't work either. Thanks for the tips though,

You don't need FSM take Boot_PS2 and it will work. Controller only work if you connect it direct with USB cable.

i have tray FFX FFX-2 and FFXII and don't work really....

so maybe there is a way using the new PS2 Emu from 3.6+ and the then it works better.

Will try it. But have to retract from dongle CFW for now, then.

Its good but if you have to put it into Service Mode just to get PS2 games working I would be waiting for a better fix.

Yeah, only original ones.

Well I've tried playing playing 3 games and they all can't detect my PS3 controller even though it worked fine in factory mode.
