Games "So, to summarise this buyer's guide to next gen consoles: don't." Yahtzee, as usual, nails it. I particularly like the apt description of how you used to buy a console because it had the specific games you wanted, whereas now it feels like you're buying a console because it's holding the games you want hostage.

My original Phat version still does play PS2 games, I just tried it! I take your point about the Other OS, although with the original 40Gb HDD there wasn't a lot of room for media storage, never mind an install of Linux as well!

You could always just swap the HDD out to a bigger one. It's a standard SATA-I interface and if you leave the metallic caddy out and just stuff the HDD as-is in there you can fit a 2.5" one just fine there. I've got a 750GB one on mine.
