Default PS3 sales up to 170% in UK

...but it's the 60GB model !!!

89% of the total sales, actually.

It seems that people are more concerned about loosing BC anytime soon after the introduction of the 40GB PS3

http://www.gamespot.com/news/6181094...stnews;title;4

Is really the 40GB PS3 seen as the new "tard pack" ? This reinforces my belief that backwards compatibility, in Europe, IS seen as a substantial feature of the Playstation brand. Not to mention the better bang for the buck with two free games and an extra controller.

The 360 core is pretty retarded, and I'd feel short changed if I had it. Same goes for the new 40gig PS3. So yes. Its reeling in people who dont know any better. From a business standpoint they manufacture less costly blurays and make much more on the unit sale. From a market standpoint the customer looses a key asset after launch.

Announcing this pre-launch would have been very different.

I know I've been thinking about getting a 60gig PS3 off amazon before they are gone. I'm really going to NEED backwards compatibility. It's not even an option. There are more PS2 games that I still play than there are PS3 games that will likely ever come out.

Im gonna get a 40 GB very soon, dont care about the backwards compatibility at all and the new 40 GB should be even quiter then the older one!

But what I have read the old one sounds like a slim PS2 and that cant be heard.
Man I love Sony they know how to build consoles thats for sure.

The 360 is a jetplane,even my high end PC sounds nothing compared to that POS

The difference between the so called "retard" 360 core system and the 40GB PS3 system is that after you purchase the hard drive for the Core 360 ALL of its abilities become available (BC, Movie/TV rental, Downloadable content etc...).

Why would I want to play PS2 Games..come on guys welcome to the 21 century.
I buy PS3 for PS3 Games and not some titles from 100 years ago..or buy the more expansive version if you cant live without PS2 compitability.

Sony do a great thing here as more choises = more harware sold but that is to much for some of you to understand obviously!

because all PS3 games currently suck ass. I never owned a PS2, but there are a few games I'd like to play. So a j00-ray player + PS2 compatibility means I might actually buy it.

I guess I'll just stick with a Wii60 + HD-DVD player. Seems like the more intelligent solution to me.

Armored Core 4, Virtua Fighter 5, and Heavenly Sword don't suck ass. Flame me all you want, punk. The only current gen system I own right now is a Wii (Metroid).
