>>2926624 >PS3 can output games from 480i - 1080p, but not 240p. Component video supports all of those resolutions (expect 1080p), so you can still use the PS3 on analog displays, such as HD CRT's. In fact, using a PS3 via 720p component on a widescreen BVM monitor looks great! As an FYI, if you use an RGB cable with a PS3, you'll only get 480i, so this is not a good solution.
The longevity of the PS2's optical unit is utter shit. Your lens will burn out in a matter of a few short years. No questions about it. Loading PS1 games or audio CDs only hastens its demise.
Personally, I'd consider investing in a PSOne, or attempt to soft-mod your PS2 and use the POPStation loader to emulate PS1 games. The latter method has pretty good compatibility, but it's a pain in the ass to set up. Good luck deciphering some underage anime faggot's vaguely detailed instructions in broken English, because those are the only installation details Google will yield.
There are a small handful of games that don't work on the PS2 - I'm pretty sure that hdd loading ps1 games onto a ps2 is not possible because the way backwards compatibility works on the ps2 is that the IO controller for the ps2 is the cpu used in the ps1 - really clever move on sonys part, but what that means is everything shuts down when the ps2 is in ps1 mode
I personally have not had an issue with ps1 games on a ps3, same goes for psp - I'm not a playback snob though.
If you're into that shit I recommend a modded ps1 or playing burned discs on a ps2.
>>2926868 http://www.gamasutra.com/php-bin/news_index.php?story=7139 and why the fuck are you so bitter about this? in the end most of the stuff here is anecdotal, why are you getting so worked up about your anecdotes being better than mine?
>>2926548 Any PS2 except some early slim models. When Sony started producing the CPU and GPU on a MCM process they fucked with particular timings that certain PS1 games rely on.
All models have hardware driven emulation, not software, so extremely accurate.
Also early PS2s do not have their lens 'burn out', this is a fundamental misunderstanding of how optical drives work. The problem is either that the lens got dirty (short term issue) due to optical drive enclosure being a trap for dust and dirt, or that the lens carriage got misaligned over time (long term issue).
I just fixed my PS2 with the latter issue which is 15 years old this month by opening it up and slightly adjusting the gear that controls the distance between the laser and the disk. My PS2 works like new again.
>>2926679 Because you need to have a real PS1 disc in to trigger the softmod
Also because of the point of this whole thread, to play PS1 games in native mode in a PS2 you have to play them off a disc.
>>2926658 I'm not the seller but you better believe I ordered one while they were available. These aren't produced anymore I'm sure it will become an important piece of my collection, being moved from PS2 to PS2. Also the goyim are the buyers not the sellers.
>>2926940 >Launch PS3 60Gb is the best Playstation. Just make sure its still working lol I know what you meant but you gotta admit that's a pretty funny thing to say. I actually gave up on searching for that unicorn and then fearing that it might give up the ghost any moment and just bought a cheap PS3 and refurbed my PS2 real good.
>>2927225 done that same trick many times back when. it could be tricky to get it to read ps1-blue ps2-silver ps2 and dvds. i used to tune it with a silver disc then a blue and it seemed to work good after that.
Replacing the phatps2's laser is really easy, and the part is cheap. The slim requires basic solder skills and is a little more effective. If you're experiencing disc read errors, make certain your laser's lens is clean before attempting a replacement.
>>2927549 I think the trick is to gradually try them with increasing difficulty...PS1 black first, DVD movie silver, PS2 silver, PS2 dual layer silver and finally PS2 blue. If it fails at any stage you need to keep adjusting...once a stage passes you don't need to try it again except at the end.
No idea why blue PS2 are so damn finicky.
I think people have too readily replaced their lasers though, you can often do miracles trying to fix so called burnt out ones.
>>2927842 >Why repair anything just throw it away if it breaks Also you're fucking retarded OEM KHS-400s are definitely available they just cost ten times what the Chinese ones cost. I'll stick with the Chinese ones thanks.
