WHICH IS THE BEST PS3 CONSOLE ?

45 Replies 27,635 Views Created 13-06-2009

i`m thinking of getting a ps3 within the next month or so,but have reservations on which model to get i really fancied the 60gb model because of the backwards compatability & extra ports,but i would be doing a lot of gaming (minimum of at least 8 hours a day)but with the overheating issue on that model it has put me off slightly plus my mate had the 60gb model worked fine for 16months then ylod happened,are these models subject to problems around the 2 year mark ?,

are there any known problems that effect  the 40 gb or 80 gb models ?,

only before i splash the cash i would like to get some insight on these consoles any views are appreciated.

They havn't sold the 60gb's since late 07 early 08, you'd have trouble finding a brand new one of them still around.. only the 80gb is the one being sold at the moment.

Get a 80gb or a limited edition 160gb PS3 they are more reliable and run quieter,if you really want to play PS2 games get a cheap PS2,the backwards compatibility was never perfect on the 60gb.
