    The PS2 is the greatest selling console in history with over 110 million units sold worldwide. It's still outselling all current next gen consoles. I don't know about you guys, but my PS2 is dying. I don't like the idea of buying a new PS2 because the PS3 doesn't do BC. I'm going to hang around the stores and see how this 40gb PS3 fairs for X-mas.

    I know it sounds cruel, but if Sony wants to sell more PS3's they need to cancel the PS2. Microsoft did that with the Xbox, when they launched the 360. If people can still buy the PS2, they will, in fact according to current sales they still are.

    But only PSP and PS2 are making money for SONY, the profit from them offset the loss from PS3. If SONY stop PS2, they will be in deeper $hit, becasue loss of PS2 sales is far greater than the increase of "loss" on PS3. xD

    You have to wait until Nov 2.

    Prediction:

    40GB = $399

    80GB = $499

    Why is 80GB better?

    The backward compatibility for the 80GB is done by software emulation, it will take a smart hacker a few month to clone it onto the 40GB version.

    I agree with Tails. The 80gb has more going for it. A person once asked me if you would rather buy a console with everything for $1000 or a console with almost nothing for half the price. What would you choose? I prefer everything. If they offered the Wii at $125 with no flash drive, and no BC, I wouldn't buy it.

    80GB only make sense if you store a lot of songs and videos on your PS3. For everyday game play and Blu-ray DVD watching, even 20GB is enough.

    Now, Sony should make the PS3 part of their LocationFree strategy. Imagine a 250GB PS3 LocationFree media server.

    The playstation crowd has attracted a lot of very very very smart modders. Not hackers. The difference with the PS3 is that sony saw what the modders did to the PSP, making it an amazing piece of technology, and thus encourage homebrew and other such changes to the PS3.

    The psp and ps3 use the same OS, only that the OS for the psp is the lite version.

    Eventually modding will do wonders for the PS3. As for anyone trying to get one, look for the older version that does not rely solely on software emulation, in my opinion it is better though does generate slightly more heat.

    The Hard Drive space really doesnt matter though because you can always hook up an external HD or add your own at any time. I spent 100 bucks and got a 300 gig in mine. The emulation is great for keeping your playstation library going.
