OK! so after much deliberation I am deciding to keep my Wii (instead of trading it in for a PS3). However I do still intend on owning a PS3 one day aswell, but can someone explain to me the benefits of the new model. Here are the facts as I understand them: 1. The new 40GB model has (obviously) 20 GB less memory than the 60GB model. 2. The new model has only 2 USB ports to the 60GB 4 USB ports. 3. The new model is not backwards compatible (the 60GB is). 4. The new model with one controller costs £299.99 or with 2 games costs £349.97. A 60GB model costs £349.95 with 2 games. These prices are from Argos, but as far as I can tell they are pretty standard for UK retailers. So based on those facts why on earth would anyone in their right minds opt for the lower spec "new" model. I'm very confused!
