Yes no ps2 games on a 40 gb version. And also only 2 usb ports on the front where the 60 and 80's both have 4. But also the multi memory card reader is missing. So i would recomend at least the 60gb version, but if your feeling flush then treat yourself to the 80gb version. Hope this helps you.

Can I buy anew gameboy colour today


Unfortunately game boy colors and long been discontinued. Your best bet would be to go to ebay.com and see who is selling one, and if someone is selling a brand new one. Use the link I posted to check it out.

Playstation 3 stopped working in a middle of a game light turned from green to yellow then red please help


You have the infamous YLOD, aka. Yellow Light of Death. This is the number 1 cause of pS3's dying. It is an overheating issue linked to your CPU and GPU (the processor chips) You will need to find a local PS3 repair shop who can repair this. Do not try to attempt repairs seen on the internet yourself. You could make things much worse and render the unit totally unresponsive. The repair process takes about 3 hours.



IT CAN BE FIXED





IS THERE A DISC STUCK INSIDE?



If you have a unit that is not backwards compatible, any non 60g or 80g then you can retrieve your disc.



Power off the unit using the toggle switch on the back. Hold down the 'eject' button and turn the toggle switch back from off to on. This will run a fan test and eject your disc. Remember, this will only work on the 20, 40g models. Not the backwards compatible units with the 4 usb port holes and the memory card slots.

Why cant i play ps2 game on my ps3 40 g


The 40g PS3s don't support PS2 games. Only the 80g. Possibly the 60g as well. I almost found that out the hard way.

Ps2 game not working on the ps3.


If you have the 40G model, it will not support the backwards compatability. However, the 80G and the 60G PAL models do support it. Check the model you have, and if it's a 40G, then it will not play ps2 games.

GENERAL QUESTION FOR PLAYSTATION 3 40G VRS 60 OR 80G....


No the ps3 is compatible for ps2 games NOT ALL OF THEM!
The only difference is the special editions like the spiderman one the mgs special edition ect... OR if you have a 20gb ps3 it does not have internal net or the 1080i feature!

A new hard drive and 15 minutes and you can update your ps3 to 120gb 250gb and so on!

Ps3 wont read discs


Just return your system or exchange it. I have same problem 2 times. First with 40G system only 2 weeks old. Exchanged that one with 80g system. This time it last 3 weeks. Now returned and got my refund back. Will not buy PS3 again until they solve this disc drive issue.
