Got a sudden urge to play this again, and hopefully this might revive this board as well.
I totally would (coincidentally I came across this thread while listening to some songs from its soundtrack) if my PS3 slim did PS2 games.
So, you might just be out of luck.
Out of curiosity, did you have a PS2 when you bought a PS3?
Well I'm already at the seraphic gate now, so I'm basically finished really. Say how about VP1 instead?
