On the hunt for a 60GB PS3 🤬 SONY

Sony decides to discontinue the 60gb and 80gb models of the console, to sell the slimmer 120gb model .. Now you might be asking why settle for the 60gb ? Easy answer.. Backwards compability. I want to enjoy my ps2 games & Ps3 games. Sony loses money when people purchase ps2 games & consoles because its not its next gen .. and im thinking about copping the ps2 gta trilogy box set aswell as the metal gear solid box set. Nostalgic value feel me ? I want to enjoy that on a next gen ps3

The ps3 60gb is selling for 350-500 because of the backward compability smh at sony

    I still play PS2 games. Some games I never finished (Bully, Prince of Persia etc.). But most times I play on my PS2 instead of using my PS3. Still got the PS2 hooked up

    The 80gb MGS4 bundle is selling on ebay for about $800 its def. a gem it will be rare to find the original fatboy model of the ps3 .. I knew I should have copped a ps3 a long time ago.

    An People wont come off the older models because of the backwards comp, it has more usb ports etc its a beast machine.. An 🤬 paying for a ps2 tittle I already own, sony is just trying to 🤬 your wallets by making you download a ps2 game off the network. In an article they said that they didnt profit off of ps2 games mostly for that reason, they cant profit from ps2 games through the marketplace if people have backward compability on the consoles its pointless

    i copped my 60g during the launch too, so im good to go b!

    and they discontinued the compatibility becuz they want people to buy from the playstation store. they figure more people are going to buy the games from the ps store opposed to going out & buying actual ps2 systems & games to go with...

    so in that sense their still getting their paper cuz more people with a ps3 are likely to download games from the store then go buy new ps2 games w/ a system.

    I'd say keep ur eye open on craigslist, ebay & amazon...i saw someone in my area selling a 60g for $350 on craigslist a few weeks ago

    It had symptoms of the YYLOD again, it randomly turned off one day playing Modern Killstreak 2 and a message popped up reading, I didn't turn it off properly. It was also freezing so I made my cash and left it go. I'll be getting the slim in a few weeks. Back to busting jokes online again.

    My 60GB got the YLOD earlier this month, it sucked. Had to pay $180 to get it fixed. They offered to send me a new one (I assume a slim) for $120 but I like the look of the old model, USB, and memory slots along with BC.

    But to be real to anyone that doesn't have a PS3 or has one without BC and wants it....Once you get more and more PS3 games you won't even care about BC, you'll just be glad to know you have it. It becomes an asset.
