I just called Chumleighs and they said they had an ORIGINAL ps3 with ps1,2,and 3 compatibility and the whole 4 usb ports and what not used for $274. I was thinking this sounds ok, but really i was originally looking at a slim, not the oldest ps3 model, but then again, ive never owned either so i don't know if its a great deal or not. Anyway, its only 60gb, and the slim is 120gb, so im still thinking this isn't a great deal, but if anyone disagrees, id like to know.

Unless you intend to to use it for a lot of PS2 gaming I'd leave it and get the slim version.

there's nothing that's certain... of that you can be certain

Just out of curiosity, do you live anywhere near Peterborough or Kingston? I thought there was only 3 Chumleighs in existance, and they're all in southern Ontario.

I would recommend getting the 120 GB PS3 Slim. You'll get more space for just a few dollars more. I know I am.

Considering the 60GB version with backwards compatibility sells for about $350 and upwards, yes it was a good deal. If you want backwards compatibility or even if you change your mind and want to sell it to make a slight profit.

Somebody set up us the bomb.

A Slim for $26 more. I'm assuming you have a PS2...so why do you need more backward compatibility?

well if you have a PS2 already(which has so many games compared to PS3) than get the Slim,but if you don't then getting a Slim will cost you the ability to play the awesome games on ps2

Well honestly, i think the ps3 slim being energy efficient is awesome. But I much rather my phat with all the extra features. Plus the Phat has a better processer so that means quicker loading times. So take that back i'd rather the phat. I guess for DaDun i suggest the slim because of it's 120 gig drive.
