Default Difference in 3 ps3 models?

Besides hard drive, what is the difference between the 160, 250, and 320gb ps3? I know old ones had 4 Ian vs 2 usb for the cheaper ones.

Getting one for Christmas along with GT5. Will be the first console I've owned since the Sega Genesis/CD

all the new ps3 slims are the same, like you say the harddrive size is the only differance, i know they did a 320 gb ps3 with the move starter kit a while ago not shure if they still do but with that you got the playstation eye move controler and the sub controler.
i would with a bigger harddrive as there are some cool games on playstation store for download, i have a 250 gb slim and the original 60 gb but i have swaped out the 60 gb harddrive to a 500 gb to store my films and games on lol

Is there a way to replace the wireless g card with a wireless n card in the PS3?

What?

My PS3 only came with one Ian and he wasn't happy when I took him out of the box.

Crap. Man I posted this from my phone and the built in dictionary changed the word. It is supposed to be USB!


I'm not worried about storage space much. Can't download games on dialup.
Looks like I'm getting the 160 then.

Thanks y'all.

Be careful with firmware updates, some of them can be huge.
