Gameplayer has got wind from local Aussie retailers that the 40GB PS3 will be on sale next week, at an attractive price point, too.
1. Is it backward compatible 2. Is it Wi-Fi 3. will it play regular DVD's
Yes Yes And yes
Take a look at this video and laugh... http://www.youtube.com/watc...
Backwards compatible.........no ps2 games run on this at all...no download.....nothing That is why I bought a 60gb PS3 it has the hardwear built in for old games.
1. Yes, No, Yes, hehe
considering the fact its wifi options were tested with the FCC it will have wifi built in
let the games begin.
1. No 2. Yes 2. Yes
Backward Compatibility, although not as extensive or effective, can be run by software emulation. The North American consoles use hardware emulation but just because this new SKU will not have it, e.g. like the European consoles, does not mean it won't have BC. It will. My console runs on software emulation and I can play PS2 games on it. Why wouldn't Sony do the same for the new SKU?
Does Sony regularly update their BC list?
They'd better get started. When these puppies start rolling out everyone will want one. Hell, I'm getting my wife her own.
That is how they can sell it at this price. Not as many USB ports also.
There are only 2 USB ports on this new PS3.
For the $600 we paid. I love the flash card readers. They make it so convenient for watching tv shows in linux off SD cards and memory sticks. I guess the 40 gigers can buy usb card readers but it will suck up 1 of the 2 precious usb ports.
that card reader totally rocks.. ANY TYPE of card works, any digital camera can pop in and download or view the pics.. mans its a cool thing to have
my sources tell me this new PS3 has no flash card reader, either.
damn if i wait 6 more months i should be able to get a ps3 for $250 - $300 slash it up baby. wolverine works for sony.
let the sony domiation begin.i mean we all know thats what its coming down to
Is this model the same as the old 60gb one but with just less gigas?
better shouldn't be.lol. If it will then people who bought the 60 or 80GB were being ripped off.
