    What do you have to do to make your ps3 play ps2 games?
    I know there is a way i just don't know what it is.
    Can anybody help?

    You must have the PS3 that isn't backward compatible with PS2 games then.

    I don't have a PS3 so i can't answer directly, but since they physically removed hardware from the PS3 to remove the backward compatibility, i highly doubt it can be emulated with software.

    40GB PS3 missing key components for PS2 emulation

    Yeah.
    You're not gonna be playing any ps2 games with your 3 unless its backwards compatible.
    Killer is right - they took hardware out.
    Unless you plan on moddin your ps3, you're not playing any ps2 games.

    Unless they work for Sony and have access to the removed hardware chip, i doubt it.

    There are lots of different HDD's you can use with PS3, but that's irrelevant really.

    I don't think the HDD is gonna have anything to do with allowing you to play ps2 games.
    You need the hardware taken from the ps3 to play ps2 games.
    The HDD doesn't determine what games you're gonna play.
