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. n4g.com/ps3…spx 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.

oh im trying to find somewhere were they sell ntsc-j ps2 games coz my ps3 is ntsc-j.

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

thanks john. but 30 pounds for a ps2 game! ill be mad to pay that.

As someone pointed out, it's far better than anything on the PS3...

I finally bought a PS3 60GB last week, but took it back, I didnt think it was anything special.

i finally had a go on one last night, and was quite impressed. it does quite abit and looks better made. Blue ray looks awsome. it just needs more games to come out and it'll be great
