I have the 80gb one on the way

I heard the 60gb ones have another processor in them, which makes them prone to breaking more

But if it is the only one that plays ps2 games, might return my 80gb and buy one of egay

Thought the emulation was software based? I got a 60 and its tres bon

Lack of PS2 compatibility in current models is one of the reasons I wont be buying one just yet.

I heard the other ps3s can do ps1 games but not ps2.

Not sure though. .mines the 60gb. Only ever played 1 ps2 game on it though

The 20GB and 60GB models (in the UK) are the only PS3s at the minute that play PS2 games. All models should play PS1 games.

All ps3 models play a large range of ps1 games if not all. Only the 60gb model in the uk plays uk pal ps2 games.

The ones you are thinking about are NTSC so not UK Machines

Pretty sure PS1 games are handled entirely through software emulation, --> PSP.

60gb all the way baby. I seen some brand new ones on ebay... not extorionate prices either. Well worth the investment.... I have managed to play classics like God of War II because of the PS2 backward compatability. Also the 60GB version UPSCALES your PS2 games to glorious HD. Yeah baby!
