Example:

If I play Driv3r on PS3, do my friends see that I am playing that game?

  1. WOW, a lot of people who have no idea what they are talking about.

    Just like when you play a Blu-ray movie on your PS3, it logs you out of the PlayStation Network, so you are shown as offline when playing a PS1 or PS2 game.

    Same goes with PS2 online games. PS2 games do not use the PSN to play online, so you can play online, but you can not use your PSN account to do so.

    I have a backward compatible PS3. You can also log onto the PlayStation website and see what your friends are playing ( [url is not allowed] ) and never does it show PS1 or PS2 games.

    All PS3s play PS1 games, so tell a friend to play a PS1 game and see if you can tell what he is playing. It will show him (or her) as logged out.

  2. Yes it will show and these people above me ^^^^^^^ are wrong, unless you have a CFW (custom firmware) installed on your PS3. you can play any Playstation game that has a sharing code enabled. see I have a Playstation 3 right, I have I don’t know. here, Grand theft auto san andreas for Playstation 2. you can put it in the playstation 3 and what it should do is the screen will turn black and have a list of codes of the format the game is. give it 1 minute and 37 seconds and its going to launch the game.

  3. I don’t know.

    I do know that the PS2 is backwards compatible with PS1 games. Probably the best thing to do is buy a cheap second hand Play Station 2.

  4. i dont really know because i have 2 PS3s that are not backward compatible but i think it will show when you play it and s weezy there is not CFW on the PS3 idiot get your facts straight before you answer moron.

  5. NO IT WONT SHOW CUZ SOMETHING IT LOGS YOU OFF OF PLAYSTATION NETWORK.IF YOUR LOGGED ON IT WONT SHOW THE GAME IT WOULD JUST SHOW YOU ONLINE.THATS WHY WHEN YOU PLAY ONE YOU SHOULD PUT IT ON YOUR COMMENT.THATS WHAT I DO

  6. Noooope don’t listen to any of the other answers. You can play PS1 and PS2 games on the PS3. It would just say PS1 game or sometimes it won’t log you into the network.
