Yes, you can run them in an emulator such as ePSXe. Typically emulators require rather powerful machines to run at the kind of FPS you'd expect from the console, however you're unlikely to experience issues with a Playstation emulator and a half-decent PC. For more information on Playstation emulation, plus a list of emulators, check out the Emulation ...

All PS3s are capable of playing PS1 games, whether they are on disc or downloaded from the PSN. Only some earlier fat PS3 models can play PS2 disc-based games. Recently though, Sony have begun adding "PS2 classics" to the PSN store, which are playable on all PS3s. They appear to be using a full software emulation to play these games. Presumably they have ...

Yes, all models of the PS3 are backwards compatible with the PS1. Only some models are backwards compatible with the PS2. You can save your games to the PS3 HDD, or (if you need to import old saved games) you can buy an adapter. The adapter costs about $30 and is available on Amazon: http://www.amazon.com/PlayStation-3-Memory-Card-Adaptor/dp/B000K1GZIU

The pocketstation is simply a special Playstation One memory card with a screen and a few buttons. A few select Playstation titles could send special data to the Pocketstation where you could play a game on the Pocketstation itself, independent of the Playstation, and sometimes send data back to the game for in-game rewards. A notable user of this system was ...

No, it isn't. The PSX emulator's save is one of two things: A savestate - a dump of the emulated PS1's RAM. A virtual memory card - A file representing a PS1 memory card. Understandably, neither of these are readable by a PC game. On top of that, even if it was possible to extract the game's save from a virtual memory card, there is absolutely no ...

AFAIK it's the same with better graphics, picture gallery and the ability to share fishing minigames with friends. EDIT: Someone made a list of the differences: The title screen is different Some slowdown before attacks until you've had the game on for a bit. The electric room with the machine soldier in the "Factory" has permanent slowdown which actually ...

PS1 games are region locked, so you won't be able to play them on your PAL PS3. Sources: http://answers.yahoo.com/question/index?qid=20090515104048AA4nkOp http://www.eurogamer.net/forum_thread_posts.php?thread_id=140751

As long as the game is available for the Vita then it should be fine. I purchased Final Fantasy VII as a ps1 classic before the vita, and I'm able to play it on the vita. The thing is not all ps1 classics are one the vita, but most of them are, so if the classic you want to play includes the vita you can play it, even if it was purchased before the vita ...

PS2 of any version is compatible with all PS1 games (there are rare exceptions). Most probably it's just a technical problem with either disk and/or console itself. The PS2 is also known for it's disk error problem, quote: A class action lawsuit was filed against Sony Computer Entertainment America Inc. on July 16, 2002, in the Superior Court of ...

To run a game from a disk image in a supported format (.BIN, .ISO, .IMG, .CCD, .MDS, .PBP, .ECM), click on File -> Run ISO in the main program window and select the image. To run a disk image in an unsupported format, you will need to mount it with a separate program and configure ePSXe to use the virtual drive which the image is mounted to (Config -> Cdrom ...

This guide explains how to convert .MCR PSX memcard images to PS3 format. PSXGE can handle conversion between most popular PSX memcard image formats, including .GME to .MCR (the format you're looking for in PSXGE is .MC, just rename it to .MCR).

Yes, all PS1 games (with very few exceptions) can be played on the PS3. If you want to save, you can buy an adapter which allows the PS1 memory cards to be used, or you can create virtual memory cards on the PS3 Hard drive.

I don't recall any PS1 games being particularly noisy in my PS2. Generally the drive speed is slower for PS1 games unless you change the settings in the menu.

Picking between PS1 and PS2 will ultimately come down to whatever it costs you to buy either, while the PS2 has some filters to make PS1 look smoother and load a bit faster, it won't make too much of a difference, in my opinion. PS1 Compatibility with PS2 is almost flawless, with the exception of some games. Looking over this compatibility list it looks like ...

Most, if not all, PSX games discs only have a single data track, which makes .cue files totally pointless for PSX game images. If your .cue files contain only the following, then you are free to delete them; if they contain more than a single track record, or the index is not 00:00:00, then you should keep them. FILE "whatever.bin" BINARY TRACK 01 ...

That light gun was designed to work with TVs in the 1990's. It works by timing how long it takes for the electrons fired by the cathode ray tube to illuminate the place on screen being pointed to by the sensor, from which it can determine the location on the screen being pointed to. Unfortunately, modern televisions (the majority sold from roughly 2004 ...

You can just use something like Daemon Tools, and mount the .cue file to a virtual drive. Then, configure ePSXE to use the virtual drive. The other method would be to Daemon Tools, and use the .cue file to burn to a disk. Then use Daemon Tools program to create an ISO of the disk. In this method it's best to get a CD-RW disk so you're not wasting disks. ...

Yes, but you need to check the CD drive part number first. Take out the CD drive assembly and flip it over. There is a square label on the underside with text in the format "KSM-440xxx". If the "xxx" is the same on both drives you can exchange them directly. For example if both are KSM-440ACM you can exchange them. If they are different, then I can tell ...

If I remember correctly; The Slim version supports only the PS/X(1995-1999)version memory cards, not the PSOne(2000-2500) version ones. This could be your problem. (I used to have 2 memory cards, the "hard edged" PS/X one and "round edged" PSOne card, and only the older blocky card worked on my slim.)

Not in-game no. The very first game was pretty barebones compared to what it is today. There's no move listing, gap listing, trick editing... nothing. You had to find out what the tricks were yourself (per skater) or refer to a guide.

I may be wrong in assuming this, or your disc may be scratched to all holy hell, but... Have you tried running this game from your disc? I could just be underthinking the problem but some emulators can do this, I was able to play my old scratched Tekken 3 from disc. I also cleaned mine and did the peanut butter trick to do so.

As kotekzot stated, you might have a faulty ROM. If the games doesn't work for you on both these very fine emulators, and it does work for other people, my first guess is a bad ROM as well. That said, here are some things to try out: Obviously, you can try downloading a new ROM from somewhere (sorry, I can't post any links) Try running the emulator ...

As far as I know (coming from a guy that has probably 50+ PSN PS1 games downloaded on my PS3), there is no default way to change the controller setup like so. I always adjust my graphics (smoothing and full screen) every time I launch a game. I know it's annoying... but hey, I'm glad we can still play some of our favorite games.

Only the Classics downloads from the PSN are region-free, so if you create a USA account on your PAL PSN, the PS1/PS2 games from the USA PSN will work, same goes for Japanese games.
