Can The Ps2 Read DVD+R DL Discs?

Thinking forward a bit here but does anyone know if these DL dvd+r discs can be read fine on the ps2??

Its just that its romoured that the next gta is on a dvd9, i when i get it i would like to be able to back it up, but if the ps2 cant read dvd+r dl discs then its not worth me upgrading to a dl burner anytime soon.

Not tried games but mine plays movies perfectly on the verbatim dvd+r dl disks.
Its an early (very picky) v3 machine.

Yes the Ps2 will read DL DVD disks fineā€¦
