Well if you live in the US then there is the 80GB too but if not the 60GB (bare in mind that this model has been discontinued).

Now there is the 40GB one.

If you want backward compatability, then you should go with the 60GB or the 80GB if you can manage to get your hands on!! Otherwise, the 40GB would be just fine

technically the 60gb had the backwards compatiblity hardware not the software. Which meant it had a little PS2 inside it basically. And it had 4 USB slots and the memory card slots.

Whereas the 40GB PS3 doesnt have those but it has the cooler running chip and quieter fan. I guess the 60GB is the most capable PS3 if thats what you're asking.

There is no other PS3 model.

Indeed it is. It has the most features out of all four models. I dont believe any besides the 60 have the digital card readers, Full Back ward's compatibility. Any ways, Other than that theres little or no difference left.

the 60Gb is by far the best. when it come to backwward compatibility to the PS2 and PSX it play anything and everything.

the 40Gb and i think the 80Gb (no too sure on the 80gb) have emulated backward compatibility meaning that the games are stepped up to better resolutions. on the 60gb the playback is native which means i steps upthe graphics as well as having compatibilty for all games which the other lack. plus looks wise it has had alot more detail. on the 40gb the PS3 sign is painted on while the 60Gb has a crest that stick out. quality wise and playback i would get teh 60gb

the 40gb doesn't have any backwards compatibility, the 80gb uses software emulation and the 20 and 60 use hardware emulation.
