Our new Indie Games subforum is now open for business in G&T. Go and check it out, you might land a code for a free game. If you're developing an indie game and want to post about it, follow these directions. If you don't, he'll break your legs! Hahaha! Seriously though.
Our rules have been updated and given their own forum. Go and look at them! They are nice, and there may be new ones that you didn't know about! Hooray for rules! Hooray for The System! Hooray for Conforming!
I have a 60 GB North American PS3 with hardware PS2 backwards compatibility. When I put in a PS2 disc and try to play it, the PS2 logo shows up, but then it goes to a black screen (sometimes with artifacting on it, like a strip of white snow/pixels at the bottom). If I play around with the controller, it sounds like I'm moving through a menu (clicky menu select noises) on both games I tried (Okami and Yakuza 2). When I hit the home button, nothing happens. I have to shut down the PS3 and restart it to get back to the XMB.
It plays PS3 games, Blu-rays and DVD movies fine. A while back (close to a year) I had it sent in to be repaired for the YLOD, and after that I hadn't tried any PS2 games until now, but this is the first time I've noticed any sort of problem with it since I got it back.
Is there anything I can do on my end before I beg Sony to try and fix it again?
