Very unusual to find a supplier with these in stock now! Yes, somewhat pricier than when they were available but considering you can't get them anywhere else now, IF you must have one it may be a bargain!! Remember this version plays PS2's and of course plays Blu-ray.

im on the lookout for ps3 deal and want a 60gb model to play ps2 games, but is this worth the extra £100 or so?

or is it worth hanging on for a price drop??

will sony ever include ps2 back compat again?

is there a way of playing ps2 games on a 40gb?

its worth it im really happy with mine

What do you mean "plays Blu-ray unlike the 40gb" ????? I thought they all play Blu-ray.

Corrected!

Voted cold, because it's actually cheaper to buy a 40GB PS3 and a slimline PS2.

Voted hot - rather have just the 1 machine!

And its not Full PS2 compatiblitiy as well.Its software emulation like the XBOX. A really bad deal considering most places are doing packages for the 40GB as well to compete with the XBOX price reduction. I'm sure it will sell though because as a nation we are a bit daft when it comes to things like this. Nobody wanted it origonally at £400, but now people do. Sheer madness.I paid £303 last year for mine with 2 games and a controller, i thought prices were meant to come down not go up.

yep its because everyone was waiting for the price to come down not expecting features to be removed.
so the ps2 compatibility isn't great? is there a list of games that can be played?

Well I still think this is a good deal considering this must be the only retailer now selling it - ordered 1 for the hubby!

anyone know if it improves the graphics of ps1 & ps2 games?
how will they look on a 40" samsung 1080p lcd?

the PS1 games will look terrible, because, they were terrible. the PS3 cant make them look great, only show them as they looked at the time.

there is the option to upscale the PS2 games via the XMB, cant say that i've noticed a difference.

The 60GB one does upscale PS2 games, they look great on my 40" Sony at 720p, don't know about PS1 games

I'd wait for the new 80gb versions to come out which supposedly have the PS1/2 compatibility again !

Hot Hot Hot !:-D

Despite the feint chill, I still think this is a hot deal - if only in the context that this appears to be the ONLY retailer in the UK selling this version. Yes the price is high but that's kinda how supply and demand works

A man down the pub. :thumbsup:

i highly doubt there will be an 80gb version to come in the UK in the near future or at any point. And i dont think will be a return for backwards compatibility either.

Cheers for the big heat last few posters, I DID make it quite plain that this was expensive, but as another poster pointed out, that's what happens with supply and demand - and these still go on Ebay in excess of this price, at least with Choices you are buying brand new from a reputable retailer and get free delivery too.

Around £300 if the one that's got 3 minutes to go is any indication.

You obviously don't know much about ebay. In the last minute an item can go up £100+

So no point buying one here, and implying it's worth more if you sell it on ebay.

And......I know plenty about ebay....DH!

Well it's not source as such but it look likely this summer. I'd be suprised if the Uk didn't get the 80gb version. ]Linky

Theres loads of completed on Ebay for under this price, some around £320. Why arn't you buying up all the stock and selling them on then if there worth so much.
Down to 4 now i would have thought such a hot deal would have sold out by now. 2 in 12+ hours not really great going
Also i'm sure in October Sony announced a cut in the RRP of the PS3 to £349.99, so the RRP quoted by Choices may not be correct.
