The new slim Ps3's can't play ps1 or ps2 games, the older fatter looking models can... I have the older model and can play ps1 and ps2 games - although some of them look a bit pixelly

The first playstation 3 could play PS2 games but they got rid of that function for the "Slim" version & expect the same would apply for the new "super slim" version.

I have the Slim version, so in theory cant play PS2 games but then I havent got any PS2 games to try in it. I can however confirm the "Slim" version does play PS1 games with no problems at all. You can also create "Memory Card" slots on the PS3 which the machine saves PS1 game data to which saves the need for the oldskool hardware Memory Cards (Below).
