    Good question - I shall fire up the Quattro and check!

    Ps. how do I check . . . . system details bit I assume?

    Doesnt matter about firmware as they can be downgraded.

    The newest firmware can't be downgraded - Firmware 3.55

    3.50 and below can

    Is definitely 3.50 and has 55gb free space??!?!?

    Damn i've under used this thing

    Get rid, just got rid of mine and got a slim after it got the ylod. While I was in the repair shop to collect it there were 2 people in the shop with the same 60gb model both with the same fault. I was informed by the staff that it is a common problem with the model.

    As the games for the PS3 are in abundance, and relatively cheap, the backwards compatibility has lost its edge.

    The only thing I really miss is the extra USB ports.
    I wish they'd put one or two in the rear of the console too.

    Some people don't want the hassle of doing it though so they will happily pay if it is done for them

    Downgrading does not always go as planned. Numerous reports that it can knock out the BD drive... so do it at your own risk ;-)
