Ok So I have a 60 gb PS3 and my friend has a 40 gb and I was just wondering besides the backward compatibility is there any difference? Did they upgrade any important features of the PS3? Is it a better model?

  1. 1). 20GB has no chrome trim, no memory card reader and no wi-fi. Not manufactured anymore. Has the best backwards compatibility with PS2 games due to Emotion Engine (PS2’s CPU) and Graphics Synthesizer (PS2’s GPU) installed.

    2). NTSC 60GB has the same backwards compatibility as 20GB version, also has memory card reader and wi-fi. Has a chrome trim. Not manufactured anymore.

    3). 80GB – extended memory, but reduced backwards compatibility with PS2 games, it has only Graphics Synthesizer (PS2’s GPU). Around 60-70% of PS2 games can be played. Available only in NTSC regions.

    4). 40GB – can’t play PS2 games at all (all PS2 chips were removed), has 2 USBs instead of 4, no memory card reader, has wi-fi. Avalable in black, silver and white colors. White and silver versions are on sale only in Japan. Uses 65nm technology (lower power consumption, other versions use 90nm). Improved cooling system. It’s the latest version. 40GB doesn’t support SACD (Super Audio Compact Disc). Has no chrome trim. Added self-cleaning function.

    5). PAL 60GB – reduced backwards compatibility with PS2 games. it has only Graphics Synthesizer (PS2’s GPU). Around 60-70% of PS2 games can be played.

    Wi-fi included in all models, except 20GB.

    6). There is a new 80GB model coming this Fall. It’s the same as 40GB model, but with a larger HDD.

    They are all based on Blu-ray. They all play PS1 games. Apart from the differences listed above – they are the same.

  2. besides the obvious hard drive size and backwards compatibility, it only has 2 usb ports vs 4 for the 60gb. The 40gb also does NOT have the memory card slots, 60gb does.
