40GB is not backwards compatable, so no ps2/ps1 games will work on there and i heard that the 40GB version doesn't have a shiny effect/look like the 60GB version, o yeh and i think theres an extra 2 USB slots on the 40GB

60gb is the one to go for, for backwards compatability.

40gb is more than enough i have a 60gb ps3. but depends if you want the extras and whether you just want it for the ps3 games or u want the full system with b/c.

backward compatability is a big factor in the decision, will wait a while till the price comes down on the 60gb version again. hopefully its soon.

turns out that its compatible with only ps1 games and some ps2 games. http://www.n4g.com/ps3/NewsCom-72559.aspx#Comments and future updates will allow ps2 games to work

Having a flick through that site, my god, is there a sadder bunch of fanboys on this earth?? I don't think so.

As for backwards compatibility, they're only really speculating. Sony are marketing the new PS3 as having no backwards compatibilty.

Ive had my ps3 for a month now and i havnt even been tempted to stick a ps2 game in

Wrong I'm afraid. In fact, it's the other way with 2 less. And it doesn't just end there:

40GB PlayStation 3 model does NOT feature:

* Backwards Compatibility with PS2 Games
* Memory Stick Card Readers
* SACD Playback
* Ethernet Cable
* 4 USB Ports, this model features 2.

If it was the original hardware bc I would pay the extra. The software bc sucks though.

God of War 1/2, Shadow of the colossus, Ico and Devil Cry are all classic games worth getting.

They aren't expensive, donno the cost of a NTSC-J copy. The Pal version is about £20.
#14
oh im trying to find somewhere were they sell ntsc-j ps2 games coz my ps3 is ntsc-j.
#15
NTSC-J here but not cheap:

I would have picked up a PS3 early if it had hardware backwards compatibility but none of the Eu ones ever did and as the feature was region locked I wouldn't have been able to play any of my PAL games on a US/Jap PS3
