The 20gb and 60gb were discontinued due to their high production costs.

I think the Very best deal out there right now is the MGS bundle PS3 (If your a PS2 Fan).

40GB PS3 - Roughly 20% compatability with PS2 Games

$399.00 80GB - Roughly 20% Compatability with PS2 Games
$499.00 80GB - Roughly 80% Compatability with PS2 Games (Includes the "mature" PS2 emulator)

The 20GB & 60GB PS3 are the only ones with Full PS2 Compatability because it had the PS2 Hardware inside. The Models without this added hardware are able to play PS3 games much faster .

All models are compatable with PSOne Games.

Sony Press Event: $400 80 GB PS3 Announced
Posted by Stephen Johnson - Tuesday, July 15, 2008 1:18 PM
At Sony's E3 press conference today, the company revealed that the a $399 PlayStation 3 with a 80GB harddrive will take the place of the 40GB model at the middle of the PS3 pack.

The new PS3 will apparently have the same functionality as the 40GB model currently on sale.

The last paragraph says it all. So it will not be able to emulate the ps2 games.

Yeah, as near as I can find, there's a 40 gig model which does not have PS2 compatibility, and an 80 gig model which has emulated PS2 compatibility. As far as I know, the original 60 gig model has full hardware supported PS2 compatibility.

I though they were taking away the compatibility with the price drop. They have lost like 6 billions dollars on the system already. I could not imagine them losing more money by keeping it on the systme with the price drops.

How's the PS2 compatibility on the model that's being reduced?

As a side note, Final Fantasy XIII is going to be multiplatform.
