    Could someone please advise me, I'm buying my son who's 11, a PS3 for Xmas, is the only difference between the 40 and 60gb is that the 60 plays the PS2 games that he will probably trade in and buy PS3 games

    no, the other difference is that it doesnt have the memory card readers, and also it doesnt have as many USBS, but if ur sons 11 then this probably isnt a problem

    Memory card readers are the slots on the front of the 60 and 80 gig units that read sd cards, memory stick, and compact flash. There is no ps2 memory card slots on any ps3 they make an adapter for that.

    The 80 gig unit has emulated backwards compatibility. The 40 gig has no backwards compatibility. The 60 has the emotion engine with roughly 98% backwards compatibilty.
