As more people have a PlayStation 3 now, I figured this would be more useful now than it was at the time, so I reposted it. The compatibility issue only applies to people with backwards compatible PS3s that don’t include the Emotion Engine.
Also, a few people asked about it anyway.
Sony recently put up a website for people to check the compatibility of PlayStation 1 and PlayStation 2 games with PlayStation 3:
Your version of Kingdom Hearts may result in problems but Kingdom Hearts II shouldn’t. You need to check your product code (found on the spine of the box or on the disk) first. Click to enlarge:
Riku Edit: Apparently if you have the latest software update, codes SCES-50968 and SCES-50969 now run without problems. SCES-50967, previously unlisted, has minor issues. SCES-50970 still has major noticeable issues, and apparently SCES-50971 also does now too. Any codes beginning SLUS should work without issues.
A friend of mine from Japan working for MediaWorks Inc. that creates the Japanese Magazine “Dengeki PlayStation” recently interviewed Yoko Shimomura for an article for the June edition. I’ll post that at the time, but she also gave him a short sample of the theme she has planned for the new member of the Organization in Kingdom Hearts: 358/2 Days!
So he emailed me the new track, temporarily entitled “The XIVth Member”, which is just over a minute long and sounds absolutely fantastic! Feel free to download it yourselves from either FileFactory or MegaUpload below:
Update: The song you were actually downloading is the second section of the song “April Fool no Uta” – Hope you enjoyed it and didn’t mind the April Fool! I don’t know anyone that works for MediaWorks Inc. and I have no idea what will be in the June edition of Dengeki Playstation, but I wouldn’t be surprised if something about Kingdom Hearts will be in it. I got the music from this YouTube video:
