    Im wondering if its worth me selling my 60GB PS3 here in the UK and getting a 40GB PS3, as i could make a nice £150+ profit.

    My questions are as follows:

    1) Does 40gb PS3 still have Wireless
    2) Is it still as powerfull as the 60GB for games
    3) Can you still install Other OS?
    4) Will loss of SD ports reduce chances of a possible hack
    5) Any other thoughts or comments

    Thanks in advance.

    4) No as you could add a memory card reader via USB.
    5) The only thing that would affect you is backwards compatability.

    Other thoughts or comments: No PS2 games at all. It's not a huge deal since you have tons of dope PS3 games. However, the GTA series, Metal Gear, Gran Turismo, and a few others make it to my list of reasons to keep my 60gb.

    The only pros to moving from the 60 to the 40 would be that the 40 uses a newer processer, its not faster it just runs cooler. The other advantage is that the 40 has a bit better wifi than the 60; how much better I dont know.

    Personally id say stick with the 60 because it has full bc, and heat with the ps3's isnt really a big issue.

    I wouldn't downgrade it to a 40GB. You're in my opinion lucky you have the 60GB,one reason is because of full compatibilty all the others either have no backward-compatibility or limited,I bought a 80GB PS3 when theystopped selling the 60GB and was a little dissappointed with the limited backward-compatibility.
