    I heard the 80G ones play PS2 games, or was I misled. Anyway, 360's are cheaper than ever, so I'd go that way for only that reason, would buy a PS3 if I had the cash to spare.

    I got an 80Gb one recently and it doesn't play PS2 games. None since the first batch have, I don't think.
    The one, the only CW Black
    Code:
    47.3 W Coppinger to Heads 
        Smacked the ball straight into the groin of Iwuajoku who has fallen over, 
        miraculously with the ball still caught in his scrotal area! Out!

    Hmm, then must say my friend dodged a bullet. He loves his collection of PS2 games and was all set to buy a PS3 (80GB) until I gave him my PS2.

    MMORPG is pretty much the devil in my books, WoW is anyway. I played FFXI for a while and enjoyed a little bit of Guild Wars when I played it but never really got into either.

    I don't really enjoy FPS. The only FPS I have actually enjoyed in my life were Quake (original), Perfect Dark and strangely enough, Bioshock of recent times. I enjoyed Hexen, Wolfenstein and Doom as a kid, as did everyone really, so I'm not counting them. If you're a big FPS player then there's no doubt a good PC is the way to go. Console FPS is pretty crap if you heavily into it, it's not too bad if you're just bumming around.

    RTS is strictly a PC genre and any foray into console based RTS games have been woeful, and rightly so. PC hands down.

    I don't really like wRPG's that much, they dominate the PC market though. Elder Scrolls, Fallout & Baldur's Gate among others. Quality games most of them and most of them don't translate well to consoles. Oblivion was especially poor when I played it on PS3, but was much more enjoyable on PC.

    I'd personally say that hardcore gamers use both PC and Console anyway, emulation is a massive part of PC gaming for mine and I enjoy it the most about PC gaming. That's mainly more due to the fact that I don't really enjoy the most prominent genre's on the PC.

    I believe you can download patches which enable you to play any PS2 game you like.

    Really? That's not what I heard, read it's to do with the laser being too expensive to produce.

    Will look into it.

    Was going to make a comment about rubbing it out, but that's even better.

    It depends.. the original PS3 consoles did play the older games, not too sure about the compatibility level but they did. You can probably remember when they dropped the prices on the 60GB PS3s.. this was so that they could sell them out quickly and stop production on them. They were too expesive to manufacture so the newer lines of PS3 such as the 80GB ones no longer use hardware but instead rely on software emulation for the older PS2 games. Which basically means it sucks at it.. they should release more and more patches in the future to help with this.

    I don't care that I can't play my PS2 games on my PS3. I didn't have that many anyway. PS3 is just so gun. Love how you can update your game with the downloads.

    The color of immortality, nature and envy - you are truly a unique person. While clearly the color of nature, you also symbolize rebirth, fertility and hope in the world. On the other side of the spectrum, a natural aptitude to money with green coming to signify money and possibly even *********!

    "Sony PS3 - 80 Gig Model and 60GB PAL Model

    The 80 gig Sony PS3 supports PS2 games through software emulation.

    The success of this emulation was poor at first, but Sony has improved it with several generations of firmware upgrades.

    If you are experiencing difficulties with PS2 emulation, it is recommended that you upgrade to the latest firmware.

    The 60GB PAL model also utilizes software emulation."

    just got a Xbox 360 yesterday and I am now addicted to Fifa 09. I got it for $250 aussie dollars from EB, it was about $600 at the beginning of the year so I was pretty wrapped with the bargain. If I had the cash i wouldve preffered a PS3 because it has all the ea sports games including cricket 09 when it comes out which I dont think comes out on 360.
