They're all (I think) backward compatible in regards to the PS1, but it's the PS2 that they are not compatible (most aren't anyways).

Get the PS3 Slim 320GB with NHL 13.

Better deal, 320GB will go a long way. Especially if you're going to download movies or a bunch of demos.

if you don't want the memory, go for the super slim. PS3 SS is $270. If you want NHL 13 instead of uncharted, trade it in and get NHL 13. you don't save the $20, 'cause Uncharted is only $40., plus get $30 of Dust 514.

its $300 for PS3 Super Slim, 250GB, NHL 13, $30 Dust 514
its $300 for PS3 Slim, 320 GB, and NHL 13

compare those deals

in the end, after evening it all out, practically you get 70 GB for $30. (or trading the DUST 514 for 70 GB)

if you want more memory, get Slim.
If you want Dust 514, get super slim.(you could always get a portable drive if your low on memory)

I would but the Slim version ;)

320gb doesn't go too far with ps3. When you include psn material plus game data those gigs get eaten up fast. I went looking through my list and game data I found that Dc universe installed 12gb. I have about 170gb of hard drive space and being a plus member and free games popping up all the time I am constantly deleting games and game data to fit the next free game. Whenever I get unlazy I'm going to install a 1tb drive.

That's me, the main reason I got the 320GB PS3 was because of this.

Uncharted 3 is the best game PS3 has to offer, so I'd go with Super Slim.

Sonys thinking on the subject makes perfect business sense. They arent here to make you happy, they are here to make money and when they sell you the PS3 or PS4 they would rather force you to buy new games for it than to let you play your old games on it. They dont get money of you are too happy playing old games on their system to bother buying as many new games as they would like. Also why they will be going to a no used game format for the PS4. They dont make any money when a used game gets sold and they lose that customer as a potential buyer of a new version of that game.
