do not know too much but looked online last night and it has only 2 usb ports where the 60gb has 4. 40gb is also not backward compatible, can not play ps2 games. might be more but if i get 1 wil be the 60gb thanks
60GB only cost £50 more which is great to say you get so much more 4 USB ports (40GB = 2) get to play PS2 games which is great if still love your PS2 games (40GB = doesnt allow you) you get 2OGB more memory obviously and you dont have the shiny paint like you do on the 60GB it just plain black paint on 40GB no shine! lol and it does not have any card slots so you can not put photos from digital cameras on your PS3 etc
Mr H. Just bought a "shiny" black 40gb PS3 and it's fab. Interestingly, I heard that they are about to stop making the 60gb and will be making a 80gb instead so you have to ask yourself at what point will you go into a shop and walk out with something. The 80 will undoubtedly be able to store more memory but it depends on what you will be using the machine for. Gaming is perfect with the 40.
well i think having a 40gb and a ps2 is a stupid reaction to have... 60gb will play/store your ps2 games and also improve graphics on the ps2 titles some what aswell. for example would you buy a impreza wrx running 240bhp with enough money to tune it up to 280bhp? or would you buy the top model impreza wrx sti already having 280bhp and tune it up so it runs faster when you can afford it? what im trying to say is... if you can afford the top model then buy it. you wont benafit from buying the lower model. you will just regret it in near future. HIGHLY RECOMEND A 60GB PS3 OVER THE 40GB. just as i recomend a wrx sti over a normal wrx haha
I would recommend the 40GB. The cell chip has been reduced making the machine less power hungry and thus less noisy. A friend has just bought one and it is incredibly quiet and runs at a much cooler temperature.
60gb is better cos if you can get online you can download game demos, PS3 themes and wallpapers. Also you can actually download full games and movies on the harddrive, and with game saves on top of that youll be suprised how quick the space can go.
RE: E. Bowers Thats a bit silly. I think you should let a land rover does what it does best and let a porsche have its fun on a race track.
I bought the 40GB model, it looks nice, its quiet, it plays PS3 games and its a bluray player. 20GB disk space is hardly worth paying extra for, and getting a sperate PS2 seems like a good idea. I bet they are going for egg and chips money on ebay
It still has the black shine, HDD upgradable, just swap the USB when you need to use them, get a ps2, get a pc with memory slot reader then a memory stick to transfer them to ps3, or media server, or get adaptors for memory slots. The 40gb has better cooling than the 60gb aswell, seems theres more benefits having the 40gb than 60gb.. Just my opinion
got the 40gig and just got it chipped so can play all playstation 1,2 and 3 games and also copied games, and as for memory i just bourght and external harddrive and pluged it in the usb port , works out alot cheaper. lol
