Hello gbatemp, I'm not from US, and where I live, PS3 prices got to a place where I can afford one. But before jumping into PS3 I'd like to get advice about which model I should buy. As I understand there are 3 main models of PS3, the original FAT one, the Slim and the Super Slim. From what I gather I can instal CFW in the FAT and the Slim. More over the original one would allow me to play PS2, and that is a plus that I'd really enjoy. Because I happened to skip PS2 generation. And the wireless controllers are an extra bonus. But from my research I found that the original PS3 had heating problems and would sometimes just die. So what would you guys suggest, going to a newer PS3 model or the original PS3? Because from my research I found that you can play PS2 backups on both systems, but on the original I could play the PS2 DVDs directly. So waht you guys suggest? Moreover, I'd buy any of those systems used, so is there anything that I should be aware or that I could do to mitigate possible heating problems?
