360: 230,000
This is good news, but I think its largely due to the fact that MS has a product shortage.

But I am still rooting for Sony.

Is there any way the 40GB PS3 could get some backcompat in the near future? With some software emulation or something?

...I had to pick on the one NOT to have back compat...

You don't honestly believe that marketing bollocks about a shortage do you?

MS got beaten by absolutely every other console out there for the first month since launch and they can't face the truth that the PS3 actually is going to present a challenge.

Lets not forget that the PS3 still hasn't even been out a year in Europe.

Neither the 80GB or 40GB is good for BC. You'll need the 60GB which is basically flawless. I don't mind not having BC because I'm purchasing a TV that has a lot of composite, componenet, and HDMI hook ups so that way I can have all my consoles hooked up at the same time. You're better off not using the 80GB BC, I heard it was atrocious.

I own the 60 GB, but after watching some Youtube videos with people putting in the larger Hard drives, it makes me at least want to purchase a 120 GB.

I don't understand their reasoning behind the removal of the BC?

The 80GB BC is the same as the EU 60GB and mine works fine. Some games crash constantly (Metal Gear Solid 3), some wont run at all (Jak & Daxter) but most work fine (I've ran ICO, Final Fantasy XII, DMC, DMC2, DMC3, Black and Burnout Revenge).

Sony have information on their site for what works but I came across this more recently (LINK) and prefer it because people can actually add comments about any issues (if there any).

I'm pretty sure if it's USB, then it works on the PS3 because I know you can use any USB Hub on the PS3. I also know that you can use any mouse and keyboard so you can play UT3 as well.

Though I don't know if you can use any USB Headset, but I do know that you can use your old Socom USB headset from the PS2 on the PS3. If you still have that, you can hook it up.

Its pretty hard to ignore it when every time you walk into a major electronics store in North America and they don't have any 360 in the store.

I only hope my current model doesn't break down on me before Best Buy gets new Elite models in stock.

You can't say all over North America. Heck, in my city there are plenty of 360s all over. I can't quite believe that they're sold out everywhere. I mean at 230,000 you're going to tell me they're short on 360s when they've sold much more then that in a single month within North America?

I will modify my statement to correspond to the tristate area (New York, NJ, and Conn.) There really are no 360's in any major electronics stores in this region.

And if the PS3 outsold the 360 in January 2008, then given the fact that the 360 has a greater next gen library a supply/demand issue has to factor into this trend.

There are plenty by me [Stony Brook area]. Hell, they had a whole triangle stack of them at BestBuy the other day.

I had trouble getting an Elite in December 07 and January 08. I ended up buying the last one for 2500 miles and it wasn't the 2 free games bundle.

I would say I'm up for a game but your timing is terrible

AOL have started dicking around and randomly disconnecting at my GF's house and my router at home has started being a cunt and giving me a NAT type of 3 (which basically means any game with me in will be lagtastic).

If I manage to get a stable connection then I'll be on later. If I can't then I'll be carrying on with Mass Effect. I'm determined to get through some of these games I've got, especially as my gf didn't help by putting Devil May Cry 4 in my hands and telling me to buy it.

I played Warhawk once, though what the fook is this, and tarded it in, put a bit extra and bought Unreal Tournament. So anybody got that?

I can't believe you traded Warhawk, that's my favourite multiplayer game of last year.

It's like reliving the fun of Battlefield 1942 with better graphics.

Anywhoo, I've got UT3. But I'm currently on a 360 fixation thing. I done 1 playthrough of Mass Effect now and have gone back to Forza 2, I'm determined to finish career (77% done).

Since the backward compatability is software based, can the 40GB get it through updates or software mods?

Nope to the update. Sony wouldn't update the 40gb to be backwards compatible.

I have no idea about software mods though.

I found out from CAG - http://www.cheapassgamer.com/forums/...d.php?t=171837

That shows next weeks deals. PS2 is gonna be $99 at Target next week, and I think it's permanent too.
