    PS3 for my wii

    So a friend of mind happened to see my softmodded wii and most of my burn games. He offered to trade me his 60GB ps3 with Time Crisis and Grand Theft Auto 4. I have no need for the game. I want a ps3 mainly for Blue-Ray and Metal Gear Solid. My wii has about 30+ Back-up and a couple of wii-ware title, SD card, and an extra controller. Is this worth the trade? Should i just do it and just mod another wii from a local gamestop. Also can the backup be copy with no problems, without re-downloading all the files again?

    I'd trade. That 60GB PS3 is the most rare / treasured of any version. It has an extra core inside of it known as the "emotion chip". The EC is the primary piece of hardware which made PS2 playback nearly flawless on the first versions of the PS3.

    $450+

    considering you can get an 80GB off of Dell for sub $350, you can see the pulling power of the 60GB.

    At new, these are now hitting $900.

    IT all depends. How often do you play your Wii? If often and you enjoy the games, then don't do it. I have a Wii, PS3 60Gb version, and Xbox360. Since Christmas when we got the Wii, I haven't touched the PS3 that much for games, as the Wii has my attention right now. It's good family fun. However, Blu-ray is sweet and if you have a HD TV will use the PS3 more, then take the PS3. It's all what you think you will get more use out of. As it is right now for me, I'm liking the Wii.

    Is it the 60gig version? I'd send it in and have it fixed if it's the 60gig version, due to it's success with backward compatibility.
