I am just teasing you man.

I am glad there are some pretty smart people on OCN in which to have a nice debate

i have only 2 questions.

will this be available in the UK alongside the 40gb?

what sort of backwards compatibility does it have?

that is all.

I don't really see the validity in this post, considering the emulation on the ps3 is software based, I can't really see how this affects the hardware in anyway. The 60gb basically had a ps2 built into it, so again I'm not really sure how you construe either of these to be factors to contribute to slowing the advance of any sort of hardware.

you do know that the 80gb already has BC. the only thing with that they could change is adding the emotion engine chip for full bc(unlikely) or removing the emulation software for bc(also very unlikely since they keep pushing the 80gb as the bc solution.)

Also where is all this news of no more 80gb? In the recent EGM they were talking about the 80gb like it is here to stay for atleast this year, which if they have already stopped production, would make it really hard for it not to sell out well before 2009.

it's software based, so it will be a hit and miss with what games work.

the 80gb is discontinued in the UK, but still available in North America. I think the only thing they'll change with the 80gb is use the more efficient cpus and different cooling, I can't see them changing anything with the ps2 compatibility since having multiple 80gb versions is just asking for

the 80gb version was never available in the UK. it was only the 60gb version until last summer. Since then it's been 40gb only.

If they introduce the same chipset as the 40gb into the 'new' 80gb then itll be the perfect SKU.

yes it has BC but they will prolly do something with it. Whether make it better or just end up removing it is the question.
