PS3 remodel to be released this year?

I'm really tempted to buy a PS3 but have been put off by the fact the new 40GB can't play old PS2 games.
I've heard rumours that another one would be released this year that would be backwards compatible - anyone know if this is true?

No, no one knows. Close thread. :)

A bit unfair to close it, but yes no one really know. Keep an eye on engadget website or gizmondo, they seem to be quickest at knowing stuff like this. As far as the rumours go, i think the new one is the same as 40gb except it's 80gb and BC.

theres suppose to be a ps3 slim and lite out soon

There was a rumor that they were gonna bring out an update to make the 40gb and others backward compatable soon because they intending to put a lot of PS2 games on the PSN for download, dont know if there is any truth in it. It would have to be done with software because there is a chip missing in the newer PS3's.

My prediction will not rival any DanDoc can make, but I believe Sony will release a newer version of the PS3 that will come with a shoebox and a can of paint, this will be named the PS3 Elite.

I don't think a new version of the PS3 will come out any time soon.

The only thing Sony might do is release different coloured PS3s.

The 40 gig sku is making profit which means sony is doing really really well, there are no announced plans for a new sku but they have plans to put ps2 titles on the psn whether that will be with each one having its own "loader" or through a general firmware BC update i dont know.

sony released the 80Gb BC ps3 in US then pulled it a few months later, god knows what's going on in their minds, lol - and the ps3 is around £180 for the 40Gb in Japan, we are getting decked pricewise!

They wont release another ps3 tis year let alone next year - this model atm will be sold until id say 2010 then there will be a slimmer model

They will be keeping costs down so that this ps3 is cheap to make and then sell to make a tidy sum of profit

and btw theyve taken out back compatability completely - the simple solution remains - if you want to play ps2 games get a ps2 and dont start with the bs about oh it takes up space its the same thickness as a dvd box and a tad longer
