(New guy here) I am thinking about eventually getting a CFW PS3. But there are a few questions I have and I hope someone can clear these up for me.
1) I really want to be able to play PS2 games on my PS3. In fact I want all my PS games on my PS3. I just want to play ISO files straight off the hard drive. I have not kept up with the scene, so can someone tell me if this is possible? Is there a PS2 ISO loader? I know about the recently cracked PS2 classic emu but I plan on waiting for a full backwards compatible model so I really don't want to use the classic emu. So is there a loader that will allow me to use the old PS3 superior hardware emulation? Also, are there any disadvantages in getting an older 2006 model as opposed to a newer 80 gig model? Is there any homebrew that is specific to newer models?
2) I am really interested in remote play. I need to know if I can play PS2 and PS1 ISO files with remote play. I know PS2 does not normally work, but does it on a CFW PS3? Also, does the Vita have to be modified, or can it be on official FW?
