    Playstation 3

    Hi

    I am thinking of getting a PS3 and just wondering how hard are the 60GB versions to get hold of?? As I have got PS2 games!! Will it be worth me splashing out more on a 60GB than a 40GB??

    I wanna get one as wanna play GT Prolouge and when new Tekken comes out its going to be awesome!!!

    So with hard drive upgrade I can play PS2 games?

    P.S I do own a PS2 and PS1

    No, the only model ever sold in the UK that supports PS2 BC is the now … No, the only model ever sold in the UK that supports PS2 BC is the now discontinued 60GB (well not now, many months ago).What I mean to say is, don't go buying a 60GB just because you want an extra 20GB HD space.. you could replace the 40GB HD for very little, but you'll never be able to play PS2 games with a 40GB model.



    Cool!! Looks like I will have to go for a 40GB! Rumours of sumat new coming out though??

    Not desperate for one as just want it!!! As im free now wanna play games!!!

    Tekken 5 DR is great online, people take it pretty seriously, the best £15 i spent in a while def worth a download looks suprisingly good in 1080p too. Might be a while for tekken 6 tho but Sould calibur 4 will be good I hope. There are rumours about PS2 games being distributed through the PSN like ps1 games are now with software loader. That would make sense as to why BC has been completely removed from worldwide circulation. Although the upscaling features are great on the PS3 it is a shame people need to hold on to their old ps2's to play the games. Grab a cheap 40gb from choices i reckon.

    Were not like you PS3 fanboys allways turning respectable 360 threads into war zones:p. (Higher levels of respect and all that crap:whistling:)

    Anyway. Dont buy a PS3 to play your PS2 games on. The back compat is lackluster with games being bug ridden and bad graphics. Do yourself a favor and buy the 40gig version and keep your ps2. Best of both playstation worlds. Or you could wait a bit, im sure sony has a new version of the ps3 up their sleeves with all the current probs sorted.

    Just thought had the games so might be worth it?? Guess not!! Why, what are the problems with the PS3's at the mo? I would not mind a X-Box but my bro dont want it!!!

    TBH there arent really any probs other than the back compat disappearing from the 40gig model (might have exaggerated that lol). Also there aren't many games worth spending all that money to play (of course that's opinion).

    I know thats what I think as PS3 are just in a league of their own and so is X-Box! Games are easier to get on X-Box but some games I want are not available!!

    Deal or No Deal? :roll:

    its not a great deal really and it has no guarantee. no receipt = no guarantee despite what seller said about seals intact. Thats just rubbish. The games are worth £20 for both so £330 for 60gb ps3 is not great.

    Erm its actually very high quality, and this quality is reflected in the £25 - £40 you have to pay each year.

    PS3 it is the best
    Outrageous.

    So without reciept I cant get it fixed? Im sure I heard that you just send it off to Sony to get it repaired? How much would it be worth? Not really after games as dont like them ones juts that its a 60GB!! As ATM im borrowing one and like it as play mt PS2 games!!

    What would someone pay for a 60GB console with 2 Controllers?

    Aparently there will be an update somtime in the summer that will allow 40GB models to play PS2 games. Sony have already announced that some PS2 games will be avilible for download from the PSN so this rumour could be true.

    If it is true, which I belive it might be, it will be in a firmware upgrade meaning all PS3's new and old will be able to be backwards compatible.

    No chance of this happening IMO. Why would sony want to alienate all the people who paid top whack for their ps3s at launch? It would be a PR nightmare (nothing new there then with sony)

    How is it going to alienate any PS3 owners? I'm fairly confident this will happen as no backwards compatibility is what puts a lot of people off buying a PS3 in the first place. Also, this could be the reason why Sony has canceled some games recently (such as getaway 3), to put efforts into this.

    because the 40gb model was priced below the 60gb model when it arrived and it would upset people who paid the extra for the ps2 compatibilty only for sony to introduce it for the 40gb model.

    I just dont see it happening.

    Sony want the ps3 to move forward, not backwards.

    99% of internet rumours are just that - rumours!

    this site has been inundated with people saying the ps3 will be sub £200 soon for a year now. From what I have seen, its been going up in price since BR conquered all!

    I dont really think Sony are going care that much about upsetting some 60GB owners, all technology becomes cheaper and better throughout its lifespan.

    True, Sony want the PS3 to move forward but a lot of potential customers want backwards compatibility and thats more important to them.

    You're forgetting that the 40GB does not contain any PS2 hardware (GPU or EE), I'm not sure how good the compatibility would be with pure software emulation.

    I don't see it happening tbh.. but you never know what Sony are up to.
