  1. It means it could play PS2 disc games. That’s all. There were older Fat PS3 models with 4 USB ports — specifically 20, 60 and certain 80 GB — that could play PS2 games. No other model is PS2 disc compatible. The 20 and 60 GB models had the PS2 hardware built into them while the 80 GB model was emulated. They removed the backwards compatibility due to production costs and to lower the price of the system.

    However, there are PS2 games in the PS Store to download and play on ANY PS3.

    Also note that ALL PS3s can play PS1/PSX games.
