Question about PS3/ps2

Here's the deal.

I bought Metalgear solid 3, It is a ps2 game. I figured I could play it on the ps3, this morning I put it in, & it asked about setting up the memory for the game so I did, then I went into the game and it just said press start so i did. Then it goes to where you can start a new game or load a saved game or then it says snake vs.(dont remember)
settings


Well when I go to any of those selections, I tried new game I hit X and it goes back to the very first screen and says to push start.So I do and it goes back to the selection menu, & The only button that does ANYTHING is the x button on any selection, but it just keeps going back to the damn start up screen. Any ideas? I havent tried it on the ps2 yet since I had to come to work, but damn I have been a bit anxious to play it....

I figured ps2 games would play on a ps3 just fine. The game was brand spanking new, still in the wrapper too, not a single scratch.

HELP...

I hope the Sniper Elite game I ordered doesn't do the same shit.

Sniper elite (cool game BTW) shows to be good. No return on the metalgear.

I figured it out guys, it has been a LONG ass time that i've played any of the MGS games.
I called my buddy saturday after I made this thread, & like I had mentioned i tried the game in the morning before I left for work, I really didnt mess around with it much. The problem was (I KNOW circle button) on other games is the BACK button. So I assumed it was the same here, so I wasnt pressing it because obviously I was trying to go forward, but on the MSG my friend reminded me that CIRCLE to select/forward.

Thanks guys, I had a little trouble getting used to moving around again, but I got the hang of it again, and was kicking ass. Just waiting for the Sniper elite now, I heard its a great game. Im getting a DSL line hooked up this week as well so I can try some online gaming...

Thats the most ignorant comparison EVEr! They do not compare in anyway. Can you play some Blue Rays on your X-box? Can you play all your other Xbox games on your 360? NEXT!!!!!!!!!!

How many gamers care about blu ray....I count 1 so far. People buy NEXT GEN consoles for new games not old ones.
