Hey there is there a way to hook a ps3 to an old tv that doesn't have the yellow, red, white entries? I've looked up online and there's seems to be adapters similar to the ps1/ps2 ones but the reviews said it didn't work with the ps3's I have 2 really good contidion old tv's that do not have the entries so I was wondering if there was a way to hook the ps3 to them?

Depends on the inputs that TV has. By “old” do you mean CRT? You can also check for component inputs (red, green, blue).

If you have a VHS (or DVD) player, you could try hooking it up through that.

The official PS1 RFU adapter might work on PS3. I did a quick google search and at least a couple of people have confirmed it works on PS3, so you could give it a try.

By old I mean the tv's that only have the hole for the Antenna, they are so old they don't have any yellow,white,red entries only the hole for the antenna my uncle was going to throw them away but I rescued them and wondered if they can be played with the ps3 since there's many ps3 titles that play good in old tv's

PS3 has the same multi-AV port the PS1 and PS2 have, and is compatible with all the old cables, including the RF cable. Note that RF is the worst possible TV connection for a game console, and the system will only be able to put out 480i, which makes the text super small in a bunch of PS3 games. Many PS3 games were not built to run on old SDTVs and do not scale their graphics well to the resolution.

I have a ps2 adapted I used for years but I don't know where I put it so was thinking getting a new one to try with the tv's and yes I don't care much about the graphics as long as the game is playable right now I'm having issues with some games cause It's hard to read the text I have a 32inch fat tv for my ps3 but this tv is more modern and has the yellow,red,white entries unlike the smaller tv's I explained in my post but I understand your point I'm 100% sure a ps2 runs fine cause I played like that for years but if the ps3 works too then they won't be wasted if hook a backup ps3 to one of those
