Default The forgotten, beloved 60GB PS3: why it's still so popular

The PlayStation 3 launched on November 17, 2006, and the 60GB models were sold for the scandalous price of $600. Sony had set expectations so high that a backlash was almost inevitable. Now you can get a newly redesigned PlayStation 3 for $300, half the launch price of the premiere console, but along the way features have been lost. Ports have been removed. Logos have changed.

What a difference a few years makes. The 60GB consoles have been discontinued and there is no longer any way to play PlayStation 2 games on PlayStation 3 hardware. Even though the price has been halved, there is a small but vocal group of gamers who jealously hoard their 60GB model, and wouldn't trade it in for the new and "improved" system if their lives depended on it. I should know, I'm one of them.
