    I remember there was an 80 and 20 model and they discontinued all of them.

    I heard they discontinued the 80 model because they didnt want to stop sales on the PS2.

    Why would anyone need more than a 40 gig console?

    I still don't understand this....

    The 40 GB offered no backwards compatibility. OurSin wanted backwards compatibility as well as more drive space. Apparently only the 80 GB models had backwards compatibility and they dont make it anymore.

    And OurSin, guess what? You have to buy the HD cables seperate lol.

    Me too nigga...I was holding out on gettin a PS3 for the sole purpose of playing MGS4 and now my fucking transmission on my truck is fucked up. It's been in the shop three times since Thursday so the last thing I need to do is drop that much for a PS3 right now not knowing if I need to be getting a new vehicle or not. Shit could not have happened at a worse fucking time for me...

    you can dump divx files directly the hard drive....thats about the most use i get out of the ps3 right now but it still doesnt play most of them....the 360 plays more divx then the ps3

    and alot of new games require a 4gb install.....so if you had a 20 gb drive that wouldnt allow you to have more then 5 games installed at a time...

    and the 40gb ps3 doesnt play ps2 games....

    They stopped selling the 80G model because they don't want to discontinue selling their slimline PS2's. Or, it could easily be the reverse...they might be trying to slowly phase out the PS2. It's still outselling PS3's I think..so...Sony is just trying to milk more profit. All of these companies abuse the consumer pretty much. It sucks.

    So basically, so you can put files from your computer/hard drive on to your PS3....

    when you can just stream them instead??

    no they dont "make them"...its just whatevers left on stock...

    and they phased out the 80gb to make the mgs bundles...and because they are phasing out the backwards compatibility in general....sony doesn't wanna support it anymore...they basically said buy a ps2 if you want to play ps2 games....




    and rippy...i already told you why...installations...you install 10 games..your hard drive is full

    Same shit, If you noticed I said refurbished meaning they're taking used pieces, repairing them and reselling them. Which is why I said making refurbished because they are making them work.
