wish I had the funds right now.

I've all but decided on the PS3 over the 360. Waited it out long enough to see what would happen with both systems.

ETA I see it does, but its up to $299.99


yeah, only drawback I've heard about it, is the backwards compatibility for PS2 games is gone.

And does anyone play PS2 games that doesn't still have a PS2 laying around?

Good riddance I say, Sony did the same to the PS2 when they made it cheaper and smaller.

Yeah I don't have a PS2 but I love a few PS2 games that could be probably had in the used bin for a few bucks.



But I don't plan on buying a PS3 to play PS2 games so that problem is solved.

If you want to play PS2 games, just get a 60GB launch PS3 that's been properly taken care of off of eBay. Probably be about as much as a Slim or maybe a little less.

My 60GB is the shit. Plays 97% of PS1 and PS2 games, plus PS3 games, and has the card readers and four USB ports and the ability to install a guest OS.

Removing b/c....whether the hardware compatibility of the first units or the software compatibility of the 80GB...wasn't about making it cheaper, it was about trying to force migration from PS2 games. I've clocked more time with PS2 games (Sniper Elite, MGS3, Front Mission 4, ect) than PS3 games on my 60GB...if they had launched the PS3 without b/c I probably would have bought a XB360 Elite then instead of later.

People like to bitch about the lack of BC, and I bet most of them would never use it if they had it. The only ps2 game I played since I my PS3 was San Andreas because I missed it when I realized how lacking GTAIV was. With my 360 I've never gone back to play an old xbox game.


Dell does the 10-15% off thing frequently for ps3, 360 and wii that with Bing cashback FTW.
