its software i believe thats on the 60gb hard drive.they have to pay a license too use it so thats why they didnt put it on the 40gb version.the american versions have an emulator rather than software.

Its stupid that the american ps3 play all ps2 games via the hardware
whereas ours play like 30% of ps2 games via emu which isnt as good

oh dear, don't do it.

Its not the hard drive, its software rendered.

i know its just stuppid. they get the ps3 4 months before us then when we get ours its a step down. and we pay 100 pounds more than how much it costs over there.

I was thinking about getting one but it seems some games i want to play will only work on the ps2
I know im buying the ps3 to play ps3 games but i wouldnt mean playing some ps2 games

And now they are taking off bc on the 40gb it makes me undecisive

Best bet dandoc is eBay - no chance in shops.

for a 60GB that is.
#9
get a 40gb for 250 and buy a ps2 for 30 pounds making the ps3 280 with full bc. you can also mod the ps2.

saw some in tesco today.they are out there.check local argos`s online using 6ogb cat number.other option is get a ps2 to play the old ps2 games

if you know anyone coming from the states ask them to get you a 60gb or 80gb. there like $499 there with a pad or something. = around 250 pounds.

arent they region locked ?
#16
Games are Region 0 basially.
Bluray's are region locked, so only North american ones will work on USA PS3's


PS3 60GB is also discontinued in America..
PS3 80GB only has 90% of the 60GB's backwards compatability.
#17
Software emu isn't half as bad as it could be...

Lol, the 60GB PS3s play over 85% of PS2 games and all the big game releases should work with no problems, the software emulation is not as bad as you think!
#20
Bear in mind the US PS3 will only play US PS2 games, I had thought about buying one to get backwards compatibility but it would have been pointless as it wouldn't have played any of my PAL PS2 games.

I believe the PAL 60GB consoles have a component of the Graphics Synthesizer onboard (but not the emotion engine chip) which the 40GB PS3 lacks which is why it has no backwards compatibility.

the hard drive is basically just storage. the firmware and software for the ps2 playback is held separately within the ps3, so shoving the hdd from a 60gb ps3 into a 40gb will not allow it to play ps2 games :)

if there is a 40gb at 250 and a 120gb at 330 then i would buy 40gb and then get an external 500gb for about £50 that would make more sense in the longterm.i have a 60gb and its only got 20gb spare now and i aint uploaded many pics or cd`s on it either
#24
Since when was a 120GB even considered? proof please.

And sony have said nothing about another price drop, i doubt theyll implement one until at least Q2 of 2008.


Even if the 120 was considered we wouldnt be getting it any time soon, we have Japan + USA to release to first.
#25
120gb? lol there will only be 40gb ps3 left.
#26
was aimed at dandoc :)

that is so cool. i want a psp now lol.
#30
thats why there will be only one sized internal hard dive. some people have put 120gb internal hard drive but i dont see point when you can just plug a larger one in

Yeh sony are going to be releasing a 120gb with full ps2 back compat and all the stuff the 60gb had
#32
Dandoc, can you show proof of where this is please. [[link]]

no proof just rumour
#34
Then why say 'sony are going to be'
Sony have claimed they wont release anything higher then the 40GB in the UK.
They have no need to sell a 120GB.
#35
And if they do release a 120gb PS3, it won't be sold for under £350. Will probably be £350, with one rumble controller.
