I've had the 80GB PS3 since Christmas.

The Web browser works fine for youtube. Other sites that have different video formats such as NASA won't play on mine. I go to wunderground and youtube but that's about it. Don't expect the browser to be all that great.

Mine is hooked up wired to Linksys WCG200 but it will go wireless (as everyone already said).

Be sure to buy an HDMI cable while you are out (or order one from monoprice.com)

I found one of the last 60 gig units on eBay last Nov.
The 60 gig units feature hardware PS2 emulation and are fully backwards compatible (I can't verify this to be honest).
The 80 gig units utilize software emulation and are not 100% backwards compatible (I am told).

Do be careful with your rack mount as the PS3s run very hot, and need good air circulation.

Its aweome


They have 60 GB units all over town here in Albuquerque....I called Toys R Us and Kmart and they both had them in stock for anyone that may be interested. I also do not have any PS2 games so that is not an issue. Excellent point on the circulation in the rack....I may not put a custom faceplate on it and place it on the bottom of the rack!

UPDATE: I ordered the 80 GB Motorstorm pack and an extra controller from Amazon yesterday and hopefully it will arrive on Thursday. As far as connectivity goes....I already have HDMI cabling so that is not an issue. I will, however, be purchasing an HDMI switcher so that I can send it to either TV I want to use it for.

Thanks for ALL the help folks!!!! Great info as always here!!!:D
