People Ignore Others, My PS3 Is a 160 GB Fat Model which I bought Refurbished, I have had it a couple of years now.

If you do not need a lot of Space get 60 GB, so you know 60 GB is also Backwards with PS2 games unlike my 160 GB Model which isn't.

40, 60, 80 Gigs are the only PS3 Models to be BC with PS2 games.


I have had no issues with my PS3 which is now about 5 to 6 years old, But I may Upgrade to a Slim or Super Slim.

For that Price is excellent for 60 GB + You can BC PS2 Games so really you get 2 Consoles for 1 Console. But it sucks that Sony didn't make Every PS3 Console Type Full BC such as 40 to 80s where.

Get the 60 You will not Regret it. I say you more than likely bought this from

No Way you get a 60 GB for 100 bucks not even Gamestop sells them that Cheap.

I got one of the fat PS3s with BC bundled with MGS4 back in 2008 and it's still working fine.
