What is the difference between an 80 gig and a 60 gig playstation 3?

I mean, will I be able to tell the difference while I am playing?

Aside from the obvious 20 gigabyte hard drive differences, these models vary in other specifications. Depending on the model, it may have differing amounts of backwards compatibility (ability to play PS2/PS1 games). Old 80GB models have limited compatibility, and old 60GB models have full backwards compatibility. New PS3 systems no longer have the feature; Sony removed it.

Well, to tell you the truth, there is no difference at all between an 80 gig and a 60 gig Playstation 3. The only reason you would need an extra 20 gigs, is if say, you were going to buy alot of games online, and store then on your system. So no, you would not see any differnce at all.

If you like to play a lot of games around the same time then you will notice a difference when your PlayStation tells you that you have insufficient space to save a game file. For the most part, I do not think that you will have a problem with space, unless of course you like to hoard old save files.

You probably won't be able to notice any difference. The bigger hard drive just means you can have more things on the console at once, like demos you've downloaded, music, or the preloaded games. You may be able to have more games preloaded onto the system at once however, speeding up switching if you play many different games.

The difference is in the hard drive space. The 80 gig is slightly faster but not noticeable. It's great advantage comes when saving music, movies, games, photos and other accessories on your playstation 3. Some games that are coming out take up more memory as technology advances, this could be another benefit of getting the 80 gig system.

I think the main difference is that the 60gig might not play older games. Other than that and the storage space they are the same.


Answer by  diva25 (4016)

The only difference is the amount of storage that is found in them. A gig is how much space is found on something. As far as playing them, there will be no difference in how they play out.
