The normal PS3 package does not include any game.
Only with a "special" purchase it will include a game and blu ray disk.

No. Even the models that at one time supported ps2 titles, recent firmware upgrades all but totally make the idea of backwards compatability useless.

It still does play ps1 games but current firmware no longer supports making back up copies of ps1 disks to the ps3's hard drive. You can d/l ps1 classic games from the playstation network for a nominal price for each game and they will also run on your psp portable.

Different models of the Sony PS3 support different levels of backwards compatability with Sony PS2 games.

Sony PS3 - 20GB and 60GB NTSC Model

The 20 gig and 60 gig NTSC models of the Sony PS3 are the absolute best models for backwards compatibility with the Sony PS2.

These models contain PS2 circuitry in hardware. Each of these units contains a full PS2 Emotion Engine (EE).

Unfortunately, this hardware-based approach was very expensive and Sony discontinued the 60 gig PS3 after a very short time.
Sony PS3 - 40 Gig Model

The 40 gig model of the Sony PS3 does not support any backwards compatibility with the PS2.

However, the 40 gig model still maintains full backwards compatibility with the Sony PS1.
Sony PS3 - 80 Gig Model and 60GB PAL Model

The 80 gig Sony PS3 supports PS2 games through software emulation.

The success of this emulation was poor at first, but Sony has improved it with several generations of firmware upgrades.

If you are experiencing difficulties with PS2 emulation, it is recommended that you upgrade to the latest firmware.

The 60GB PAL model also utilizes software emulation.

Check PS2 Game Compatability

Sony provides a Playstation 3 Backwards Compatibility Status database which enables you to find the current status of backwards compatibility for specific video games:

Yes.

This can be done using the red/white/yellow cables or an HDMI.

HDMI is preferred due to better sound quality.

Yes, you can use a laptop SATA hard drive. There are videos on YouTube on how to do it. Back up your save data and anything else to a portable hard drive, then you can retore it after you have formatted the new drive.

The PS3 should use any laptop (2.5") SATA disk drive. Understand upon replacing the drive you will have to format the disk using the format tool in the settings.

Yes, fully 1080p for both game and Blu-ray content. Make sure you purchase an HDMI cable that supports full 1080p and transfers at leats 10.2 GBps if you want the best experience. You don't have to go Monster, but you do have to pay a little.

They're largely sold out, everywhere. I'm running into the same problem. I've heard estimates for delivery anywhere from a week to a month, depending on where you're looking. I do think that you can buy directly from the Sony Style website, but I was less than impressed with their shipping costs. There are also mutiple bidding sites advertising PS3 120gb Slim for auction...if you're waiting out Best Buy, though, they're usually pretty quick. I'd bet on about a week in your area.

Via the USB connection. I believe the Rock Band PS2 equipment is USB equipped and if so it will connect to the PS3 as well.

Yes, start by simply creating a user account on your new ps3.
(this user can be named anything).

when creating the playstation network username to be used with that account, instead of choosing "create new" - simply choose "use existing account".

enter your account information that you have used in the past on modern warfare.

lastly, start up the game, choose online, and when it connects to the infinity ward servers, your previous stats and unlocks will be given to you.

You need to save your profile/game data to a USB flash drive (USB ports on front of counsel) and then copy them into your saved game data folder on your new PS3. I believe COD MW will let you copy saved data. Killzone won't. It depends on the game permissions.
