  2. 3 models of PlayStation 3 supported the playing of PlayStation 2 games, the original 20GB and 60GB models and the 80GB North American MotorStorm or Metal Gear Solid 4 bundle consoles. All of these consoles though are long discontinued and the price to get one used is above the cost to buy a 120GB Slim PlayStation 3 brand new that doesn’t support the playing of PlayStation 2 games.

    They are also easy to identify as the three models that supported playing PlayStation 2 games all had 4 USB ports on the front, all other models only have 2 USB ports and are incompatible with PlayStation 2 games and even it the 3 models that did support playing back PS2 games, the 80GB MotorStorm/Metal Gear console could only play back 70-80% of PS2 games due to emulation being used to simulate the PS2 CPU where the 20GB and 60GB had the PS2 CPU inside them, hence they had over 95% compatibility with PS2 games.

    My advice would be to just buy another PlayStation 2, as it’s far more safe than buying a used PlayStation 3 without a warranty whatsoever.
