  1. If you get a PS3 make sure you don’t get duped into buying an obsolete Sixaxis as a second controller.

    Get one of these: [url is not allowed]

    Upon checkout use the code: RE-XMA-SAB

    for $5 off.

    They come out in the US Spring ’08 but are available now in the link from Japan.

    Sony is trying to clear out Sixaxis overstock in the US.

  2. 20gb- has no wifi and flash card reader, but have 100% backward compatible by using emotion engine.

    40gb- has wifi and only play ps1 games, but don’t have flash card reader and ps2 backward compatible.

    60gb- has wifi, flash card reader, and 100% backward compatible by using emotion engine.

    80gb- has wifi, flash card reader, and not 100% backward compatible because they are using software emulation.

    the 60gb or 80gb is worth your money. 20gb is also worth if you don’t care wifi and flash card reader. 40gb is only use for ps1 and ps3 games and movies.

  3. I’m not entirely sure about this, but I think they’re exactly the same except they hold more data. That’s why one is 20gb, the other 40gb, then 60gb, then 80gb. Also they cost different amounts of cash.

  5. This question is an often one, so that’s my cut & paste answer:

    1). 20GB has no chrome trim, no memory card reader and no wi-fi. Not manufactured anymore. Has the best backwards compatibility with PS2 games due to Emotion Engine (PS2’s CPU) and Graphics Synthesizer (PS2’s GPU) installed.

    2). NTSC 60GB has the same backwards compatibility as 20GB version, also has memory card reader and wi-fi. Has a chrome trim.

    3). 80GB – extended memory, but reduced backwards compatibility with PS2 games, it has only Graphics Synthesizer (PS2’s GPU). Around 80% of PS2 games can be played. Available only in NTSC regions.

    4). 40GB – can’t play PS2 games at all (all PS2 chips were removed), has 2 USBs instead of 4, no memory card reader, has wi-fi. Avalable in black and white colors. White is on sale only in Japan. Uses 65nm technology (lower power consumption). Improved cooling system. It’s the latest version.

    5). PAL 60GB – reduced backwards compatibility with PS2 games. it has only Graphics Synthesizer (PS2’s GPU). Around 80% of PS2 games can be played.

    Wi-fi included in all models, except 20GB.
