IS it the new PS3? if so there are four factors I can think of either your video cable is bad, or you dont have it plugged in all the way. Or the video output is bad or the tv video input is bad

The normal PS3 package does not include any game.
Only with a "special" purchase it will include a game and blu ray disk.

I don't know if any games come with it. I bought a PS3 without a game bundle, but you could probably find a bundle in stores or online.

Question

Is there a way to know what bundles will be available in the future?

MAG is one of my reasons for wanting to buy a PS3 (most games I like are available on both systems or just the XBox) and after the Beta, I'm hooked. It would be nice to have a bundle w/ MAG included.

No. Even the models that at one time supported ps2 titles, recent firmware upgrades all but totally make the idea of backwards compatability useless.

It still does play ps1 games but current firmware no longer supports making back up copies of ps1 disks to the ps3's hard drive. You can d/l ps1 classic games from the playstation network for a nominal price for each game and they will also run on your psp portable.

Different models of the Sony PS3 support different levels of backwards compatability with Sony PS2 games.

Sony PS3 - 20GB and 60GB NTSC Model

The 20 gig and 60 gig NTSC models of the Sony PS3 are the absolute best models for backwards compatibility with the Sony PS2.

These models contain PS2 circuitry in hardware. Each of these units contains a full PS2 Emotion Engine (EE).

Unfortunately, this hardware-based approach was very expensive and Sony discontinued the 60 gig PS3 after a very short time.
Sony PS3 - 40 Gig Model

The 40 gig model of the Sony PS3 does not support any backwards compatibility with the PS2.

However, the 40 gig model still maintains full backwards compatibility with the Sony PS1.
Sony PS3 - 80 Gig Model and 60GB PAL Model

The 80 gig Sony PS3 supports PS2 games through software emulation.

The success of this emulation was poor at first, but Sony has improved it with several generations of firmware upgrades.

If you are experiencing difficulties with PS2 emulation, it is recommended that you upgrade to the latest firmware.

The 60GB PAL model also utilizes software emulation.

Check PS2 Game Compatability

Sony provides a Playstation 3 Backwards Compatibility Status database which enables you to find the current status of backwards compatibility for specific video games:

Yes.

This can be done using the red/white/yellow cables or an HDMI.

HDMI is preferred due to better sound quality.
