    Looking for a good condition PS3 60 gig (any size upgraded drive). Must be able to play PS2 games.

    Prefer Brisbane area pickup.

    Hi mate,

    I think you will have a hard time prying one of those out of the guys here ;)

    I will keep my ear to the ground though and if I come across one I will let you know.

    What price range were you looking at for purchase?

    I have been scanning Ebay at around the $300+ range. I am also taking a trip to a few second hand stores over the weekend. As a last resort I will be buying another PS2 to replace my dead one :)

    I have a few good leads already :) There is one for $100 pick up, plus a few other possibles on E-bay.

    Good luck finding an original 60Gb for $300 unless it has a YLoD.

    Having said that, I *may* have a lead on one that could be coming up for sale. I don't know whether it will be for certain, nor how much, but I'll keep you posted. Bump this thread in a week or so's time to remind me...

    $300 for an original release PS3 60GB. Mate that's highway robbers. God luck with it.

    Me I would be selling mine for around $500 - $600 if at all.

    I really hope they do this, though it seems more likely they'll just put PS2 games on the store like they did with the PSone classics as it will make a lot more money.

    That said we'll probably see more HD remake packs like the GoW collection. It's pretty much confirmed that Team Ico have one with Ico and Shadow of the Colossus due out in January, a few months before The Last Guardian's release.

    I read these original 2 articles from Sept 2009 which indicate the existence and planning for the release of backward compatibility for PS2 games on PS3 machines by the use of an emulator.

    They were not sure it would be for PSN released games only or disks or both.

    Leaked: Sony's Motion Control Plans, PS2 Emulator For PS3

    PS2 emulator may mean you can play your existing games on the PS3

    Nothing else has been leaked so far but it's interesting to note Bayonetta was listed in the report which might go so far as to make that leaked document legit.
