PlayStation 3 is the industry's most advanced next-generation home console hardware, realised through the combination of Cell and RSX processors.

With the Giga-bit Ethernet and a pre-installed 80GB Hard Disk Drive (HDD) as standard in PS3, PlayStation 3 gamers will be able to download a variety of contents as well as access on-line games and services over the Playstation Network.

Equipped with basic input/output ports, PlayStation 3 supports a broad range of displays from conventional NTSC/PAL standard TVs to the latest full HD (1080i/1080p) flat panel displays, offering PS3 owners the joy of the most advanced computer home entertainment content. For use in living rooms, maximum heat and noise reduction has been achieved with a noise level equivalent to that of the current slim-line PlayStation 2.

With the overwhelming computational power of the Cell processor, PlayStation 3 is capable of playing back content from Blu-ray (BD) disc at a bit rate of multiplex 48Mbps with ease, the maximum bit rate defined in BD standards.

Comes with the new DualShock 3 Controller! The PlayStation 3 80GB model does NOT feature:

* Backwards Compatibility with PS2 Games
* Memory Stick Card Readers
* SACD Playback
* Ethernet Cable
* 4 USB Ports, (The PS3 80GB model features 2 USB ports)

Thanks for the clear description. I am hoping that backwards compatibility will return to the ps3 at some point in the future. I just enjoy playing my ps2 games too much at the moment - would love to play them in upscaled mode...

how only in harrogate

why there

m8 you put up the American 80gb specs this model will only have the same setup as the 40gb but obviously with a bigger hard drive. I might get one these are excellent streamers and you can watch net tv also. top price

Because this is 60 quid cheaper?

I've been surprised at the lack of deals for the PS3 this year.... typical since Im after one!!!

Nationwide at £179.97 but stock is very limited.

the history of PS3 backwards compatibility

launch,hardware BD is so much better than xbox's software BC
then change to software BC,well its the best solution
drop BC all together as nobody wants to play their PS2 games :thinking:

i dont get it and Sony have said they have no plans to reintroduce it!



(PS3/360 owner before i get fanboyed)

The 60gb is the only backward compatability console.

Sorry, no sku number of receipt because I don't bought it.

I don't need it - I have PS3 60gb console already.

is this nationwide?? i know someone asked.. but is it true?

Worth noting that as far as I know, the wireless adaptor built into the slims is of G standard, whereas it's N standard in the older models.

Nearly true! The uk 60gb has the hardware playstation 2 graphics chip, so it's not completely software emulation!
