I think that even though the 60 is better because it has much more features then the 40. But i dont know the real difference other than the memory difference

In reply to an earlier post on 9 Nov 2007, 00:43:50 GMT
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

60gb is not sold anymore, but id reccomend 40gig anyway

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.

Im looking at getting a ps3 and i was wondering the 40gb one, is it shiny black, matt black or what?! and does it have the neat chrome trim and chrome writing

Dan says:
It is shiny black. It does not have the shiny metal chrome effect. But who cares, the machine is very quiet and runs much cooler. The 40Gb represents gerat value for money.

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

Please listen to me very closely. 60GB isnt really getting updated much so i would recommend and 80 GB.
80gb would be the best option or the 40 gb.

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
