    80GB is 499
    40GB is 399

    Neither are backwards compatible

    The 60GB is no longer in production, so if you see it in stores, grab it! It's backwards compatible!

    I am regretting being impatient and buying the non wi-fi having 20GB model.

    Neither are backwards compatible? That is so infuriating.

    WRONG. The 80 gig IS backwards compatible. The difference is that the 80 gig uses emulating software and the older 60 gig (which you can still find if you do your research) uses emulating hardware.

    Edit: Mr. I is indeed correct. I looked it up, and apparently the software emulation seems to be doing it's just just as nicely as the hardware emulation. Very good news indeed! You will of course, need regular firmware/software updates online to keep up with the master ps2 game list, so I've been told, but it hasn't been a problem for anyone as far as I can tell.

    Makes me want to sell my 20gb model and buy an 80GB model.

    *UPDATE*

    In case anyone was wondering, the 80gb model of the PS3 does have some problems emulating ps1 and ps2 games. For some games, they simply flat out don't work, though this will hopefully get better with updates.

    Check here to find the status of a particular game.

    Backwards compatibility is a bonus and shouldn't make or break a system. Yeah, it's nice, but how many times are you really going to use your PS3 to play PSone or PS2 games? Nice, sure, but if it is missing in the new units, oh well. I'm just mad that PS3 wasn't more popular so I would have gotten one of a few promised PS2 hand-me-downs from friends. :(
