Is the ps3 80gb CECHL03 backwards compatible?
NO it is not. The only PS3 80 GB model that was backward compatible was CECHE. It was the last PS3 model that was backward compatible. Even the PS3 40 GB models CECHG and CHECHH were not backward compatible.
The related link for Playstation support provides details on the different models

The original PS3's are - I have one of the original 80gb PS3's that is backwards compatible with PS2 games. You can still find refurbished ones, though they're slowly being bought up. Try online at Gamestop - they don't often have them in stock online, but they usually have the location of local stores that do.
yes No you can not turn a PS3 into a Backwards Compatible PS2 game player. That's why the demand for older Backwards Compatible PS3 models with the 4 USB ports has increased the resale value. If you could make a Backwards Compatible PS3 Slim 250 GB why would someone pay as much for an old PS3 with an unknown history that might have been repaired many times.
First Generation models ie. those that were released first were fully backwards compatible and played PS2 and PS1 games as well as PS3 games. The second generation of the PS3 also which also had 4 USB ports were also Backwards compatible with many of the PS2 games. All other PS3 models lack the backwards compatible feature and are not considered to be Backwards compatible. see related link.
The PS3 that were Backwards compatible are being refurbished and sold from places like Gamestop. Production on earlier PS3 models of all but the newest PS3 slim has stopped. I have seen new PS3s being sold on Ebay that are Backwards compatible and they are going for twice what the PS3 slim sells for,
20gb and 60gb and 80gb. If you want to know more information read below! The 20 and 60 has the most backwards compatibility. The 80 can't play all ps2 games because of (software emulation). If you want to play more ps1 games then ps2 games then buy the 250gb ps3. The ps3 slim can't play ps2 games. The ps3 slim can only play ps1 games.
You can't download it. You have to buy a PS3 with Backwards compatibility. _______________________________________________________________________ I have started a facebook group entitled, "All PS3 systems should be BACKWARDS COMPATIBLE!"

yes you can play ps2 games on a ps3 if your system is backwards compatible most are not and they stopped making them in with the 40 GB PS3 model released in 2007 and with the new 80 GB introduced in 2008 None of the new slim PS3 machines can play PS2 Games. Only the PS3 with 4 USB ports are backwards compatible
apparently, there is a free download from the PlayStation Store or something that allows the PS3 to be backwards compatible. or so my semi-reliable sources tell me. believe me, if i had a better idea... or a PS3... i'd know more. _______________________________________________________________________ That is not true, the only PS3's that are compatible are the first generations PS3's and they are no longer producing them. I personally think this is ridiculous and have started a facebook…
New remake of 80GB ps3 when my mom was returning the 60 GB cause it wasnt ps2 compatible and the guy said that there remaking the 80 GB whens is releasing?
Only the first models of PS3 consoles with 4 USB ports were Backwards compatible. see related kink They why is because it was cheaper to design the PS3 without Backwards Compatible capability and they were selling the first PS3 models at a loss. See PS3 Wikipedia related link. When the number of PS3 games increased Sony made a decision to make the PS3 more affordable and drop the Backwards compatible feature. People who want the…
Well, the only way that you will be able to play PS2 games on a PS3 is if you happen to be lucky enough to own a backwards compatible 60GB PS3. If you don't, then it is impossible, unless Sony decides to offer them as downloads via the PlayStation Store. If you do get a backwards compatible PS3 just pop the disc in and start it up.
