If you can find a 60gb, get it and sell your PS2. It will be much easier to just use one console for both.

Otherwise, go for it lol.

QFT! The 60's were the best model produced and I have had NO issues with it AT ALL! It sits on its side with the fans blowing out the top. Updated regularly through my wireless network keeps my PS3 at the top of its game

ps2 games don't look that great on an hd screen even with the upscaling. well, it differs game to game. the titles were made for an sd tv. for example ffxii looks horrible on an hdtv with the ps3, but the simpson titles look great. you won't use the ps3 for ps2 games anyway, trust me.

Well, I had a 60gb, then sold it, then bought a 40gb. I will tell you the 40gb is a LOT quieter. If you don't mind using wired controllers and playing in SD on your PS2, then get a 40gb. It runs quieter and cooler. Otherwise go for a 60gb if you want the memory card reader and the backwards compatibility.
Also, how much are you paying for the 60gb? And, what condition would the 60gb be in?

i have a ps2 and have no intention of selling it so i saved the £50 and got me the 40GB PS3. this way, my sister can use the ps2 in her room while im just playing PS3 games but I've got it in my room to play resident evil 4 this week. The 40gb is a better machine internally. Its just whether or not the extra 2 USB slots and lack of card reader bothers you. It doesnt bother me. So thats why i got it!

Ya the PS2 game and PS3 BC is not the same as XBOX and Xbox 360 BC. All the xbox games were made for high def TV's with a max resolution of 1080i or 720p. Thats why all the Xbox games looked so much better that ps2 games, i.e. halo and halo 2 or murrowind and fable. The PS2 was not designed for HD resolutions like that which is why your best option for BC with PS2 games is a PS2 on an old tv. The 40 gig is a good cheap option although I would buy a 80 gig myself.
