    lol!

    I went to Blockbuster today and felt sooooo sorry for this guy.
    He was trying to buy a ps3 and was asking for a 60gig.

    The girl behind the counter explained that they don't make 60 gig ps3s anymore, so you can only have a 40gig one.
    The guy asked about backward compatability with ps2 games.
    The girl said it wasn't...
    And the guys wife flipped out!!
    "Your not having one then, no way... you already had one and- No way- No no."
    And dragged him out of the store..

    What topped if of was the guy looked back at me mouthing "carp"

    Ahhh,.

    And then i went and got MGS4 from currys by price promising with woolworths!

    £34 for a highstreet store.. not bad

    Out Of Interest Is There A Way To Make The 40gb Ps3 Play Ps2 Games?


    Yes trade it for a 60GB one and add cash! Plenty of people wanting to downgrade from 60gb to 40gb to raise cash!

    & can you get them in 60 GB new ?

    why cant the 40GB play ps2 games?

    hahaha

    What I Ment Was Is There A Hack Or Extra Software You Ca

    If it was as easy as installing some extra software i'm sure Sony wouldn't have removed the backwards compatibility!

    all i can say is.......

    It's missing some of the required hardware, the original NTSC PS3's had basically the chip from the slimline PS2 which allowed them to play PS2 games just as you would on a slimline PS2 itself. The original PAL PS3's were missing this chip to reduce the price however they did still have one part for the PS2 which was the graphics synthesizer which allowed software emulation.

    The PS3 40GB PAL model has neither of these chips which means it is unable to play PS2 games, only PS1.

    I didn't laugh out loud.

    It was one of those little inside laughs, you know when you see someone drive off with something on their roof.
    Or with the petrol filler, still in the tank.

    That type of thing:p

    thanks. not very clever of sony

    Why is not clever? One of the problems of the PS3 is the high cost especially when compared against the highly successful Wii which while not up to the computational power of the PS3 is very much a strong rival as a console. Sony needed to get the price of the PS3 down so with the 40GB model they used the new smaller version of the Cell processor (cheaper as you can get more chips off the wafer), took out the card readers, the extra USB ports and rearranged some of the internal hardware which meant the loss of PS2 backwards compatibility and SACD support. All this was to shave as much off the cost as possible.

    Becuase to some who have spent hundreds on their PS2 games and want to keep that collection its importand to get one that has backward compatability, to those folk it was a major selling point.

    60gb PS3 still can't play all PS2 games, it's the reason why I can't play MGS3.

    i dont honest my gamertag is Bigbob909

    i got the 360 cos all my friends had it and the ps3 was just out so it was too expensive

    ive always been a sony girl myself but i think they have punched too high too soon with the ps3 yea the capabilitys are great but 4 a lot of ppl who r only looking for standard console play but with better graphics the ps3 is very pricey and still so r the games so the 360 is better, to begin with i couldnt stand the 360 then i started playing full auto and now gta 4 and i love it, im waiting on a wii so im yet 2 give my opinion on tht but tht will b mainly 4 family play with the kids,

    Hahaha, poor guy.

    I'm not selling / trading my 60GB PS3 ever unless a new model comes out which isn't gimped like the 40GB.

    I'd trade my 360 in a heart beat if M$ ever release a silent console but that's just not happening, M$ fail... consistently.

    That's too small a portion of the market, many people here have rubbished backwards compatibility as not being needed. Personally I bought the 60GB PS3 and also as someone with a large catalogue of PS2 games, I kept the PS2 consoles rather obviously...

    John

    I never get the whole 'Sony are stupid, they've cost sales by that'. Look, how many PS1 games did you play on your PS2? Not many I'll imagine. and if you have a large collection that'd you still like to play, then use the damn PS2 you've already got!
