Because the playstation has huge updates that are about 300-400mb also the game demos and downloadable games are about the same. Also the movies you may download of the PSN are about 2gb. So in other words you need all of this space. 1Gb isn't enough these days.

No the new PS3's are not backwords compatible with PS2 games. All hardware and software emulation of the PS2 hardware has been removed for sometime now. a good site for PS3 info is http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Ps3

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.

It has a larger hard drive (120 gb or 240 gb). This allows you to store more information on it, making it "better" when compared to the original ps3.

I have been told that the heat output of the slim version is reduced? If this is true it would be an improvement - you could fit it in a more compact location without worrying as much about overheating. That being said, my 'fat' ps3 has never had overheating issues to begin with.

Downsides to slim ps3:

Not backwards compatible with ps2 games. 80 gb 4 usb slot 'fat' ps3 is.

2 usb slots.
some fat models have 4 usb slots.

No the ps3 has it's own internet connection, so as long as you have wireless at home or you hook it to your router with a network cable, netflix will come direct to the ps3.

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.
