  1. It has more to do with the money they save off of the build costs by removing the Emotion Engine chip on the PS3s. PS2s are still sold in stores, and they're still making games for it as well. The 80GiB and 60GiB systems also had 4 USB ports instead of 2 and included a multi-slot memory card reader under the black flap next to the disk slot (above the USB ports). The 60GiB was one of the few models that actually played PS2 games fully in hardware, with the 80GiB using a mixture of the EE and emulation.

  1. Pretty much the only thing that is different is that none of the new versions can play ps2 games. Most of the older versions can.

  2. I think they basically lose money. If game producers figure they could just put games out for 2 but not 3, then PS3 sales would go further down. Something like that.
