I JUST WANNA PLAY BUDOKAI 3
I JUST WANNA PLAY BUDOKAI 3 –
alright so I bought my ps3 awhile back thinking its backwards compatible and its not. (tough) I tried to emulate a ps2 on my laptops none of them can run it. so now I'm trynna figure out what ways I can play my ps2 games on my ps3 through jailbreak that multiman stuff whatever. I'm not too much of a noob I've been jailbreaking my phones and I hacking my psp just never anything on my ps3. so first what kinds of ps3's can do anything to play my old games and which ones have no hope.
I'm assuming that your PS3 has firmware above 3.55, otherwise you can skip this paragraph. You will need to look up your model number here to see if you can downgrade here: SKU Models - PS3 Development Wiki. If the right most column has a red background then you cannot downgrade, and you can't install CFW. If you can downgrade, then follow this guide to downgrade to 3.55 http://psx-scene.com/forums/f263/ult...rading-104398/ (The Ultimate Fool Proof Guide - PS3 Hardware Downgrading).
Once you are on 3.55, you will need to install the latest custom firmware. I suggest you go with Rebug. You have two options to play PS2 back ups. You can either convert them to PS2 classics, or if you have a fully backward compatible PS3 you can buy a Cobra dongle and use it's custom firmware.
I'm at work right now and my little brother isnt responding so I'll check when I can and go through those steps and reply to this thread when I'm done
the downgrading process seems like a hassle. I'm thinking of just selling my current ps3 and buying a backwards compatible one. but I'm still intersted in "jailbreaking" it; what are the perks of having a custom firmware?
The downgrade process is indeed a ball of wax. It's something I've never had to do and I'm glad.
The primary benefits to jailbreaking it the ability to play game back ups and emulators. You also have the freedom to apply mods to games. There's a huge Grand Theft Auto IV modding community on this site.
thanks alot for your help.
