    The Phat can run Linux and as such emulators etc.

    The original 60gb ps3 has:
    ps2 Backwards comp
    Linux capability
    4 usb ports
    card readers
    Extra weight
    Chrome
    Touch sensitivity buttons
    SACD playback

    Slim:
    Slightly Quieter
    Lighter
    Smaller
    2 usb
    Less power draw, cooler (temp)

    so would everyone say the phat is better? dads thinking of getting one thats all. will be used for gaming, possibly online gaming and maybe to watch the odd blu ray.

    You cannot get an original ps3 for new anymore.

    I would say if he plays ps2 games then yes. If not get a new slim with warranty.

    he does have some ps2 games he hasnt played yet but he could always keep hold of the ps2 aswell as you dont get much for trade ins on them now.

    The phat isn't "better", you need to quantify the meaning of "better".

    It depends what he wants. I think he'd be fine with a 2nd hand 80GB console for about £150.
    A new slim will knock him back about £240

    most of the fatties dont play ps2 anyway, the slim is far better, its slimmer, quieter and not obselete

    My chunky ps3 would like a word with you, "Want to play shadow of the colossus"
    p.s obsolete not obselete.

    You are correct , I was eating my tea and made a little faux pas. The fatty is obsolete.
