Playstation 2 - backward compatible?

Not my area at all but I was asked the question so am here to find an answer!

Can Playstation 1 games be played on a Playstation 2?

Thanks all. Dio

Yes they can

yes - as all PS1 devices (controllers etc) will work with a PS2

Yes, but they won't benefit from the greater power of the PS2, as they were written for the PS1. So if they had naff graphics to start with, they still will have on the PS2.

Thanks for that! Good to get such emphatic answers.
