"The PLAYSTATION®3 40GB model does NOT feature: Backwards compatibility with PS2 games, Memory Stick card readers, SACD playback, Ethernet cable"

Only reason I wouldn't buy at that price.
Upgrading the hard drives not to pricey and won't voide your warranty.

Neither does the new 80GB model though...for all those features you need the old 60GB model I think

Exactly. Dont understand the cold votes for this.

The 60GB version uses the actual PS1/PS2 hardware to play their respective games. The 80GB version used software emulation to play PS1/PS2 games. While both are capable of playing old games, using hardware is more effective than software emulation. The 60GB version will have nearly full backwards compatability while the 80GB version will have somewhere between 65%-85% compatability (which can improve with software updates but don't expect a whole lot as they are more focused on making new games than letting you play old ones, i.e. 40GB version with no backwards compatibility).

so if you are really in need of backwards compatability, and don't want to just buy a PS2slim, go for the 60GB (or even the 20GB if you can find one still floating around somewhere). If you just want to play an old ps2 game for nostalga purposes once in awhile (and want an extra 20GB, and a copy of motorstorm) go for the 80GB.

Excellent!!

The price keeps dropping!!!!!!!
#12
80GB on the site is £259.. only a tenner more and you get dualshock 3... i'm still gonna hold off for a better bundle to get my moneys worth..

BUT LOOK

These are the lowest prices for new PS3 consoles i've seen so far (no bundle,no offers/discounts) ... and from an Official SONY Dealer ... "CRUNCH"... lets hope the rest follow
#13
You're getting PAL and NTSC models mixed up.

We never had a PS3 sku with full hardware backwards compatibility, our 60gb was the equivalent 80gb NTSC model until that too had b/c stripped out.
