what are difference in phat and slim/super slim hardware?
is phat better for homebrew, emulation and backwards compatibility?

Also is better to buy phat for better ps3 games performance or are newer revisions such as slim and super slim better performance vise?

thanks

They are all good .
PHAT: Most prone to die but it survived all these years... More loud, bulkier, all models are cfw.
SLIM: Maybe 1/3 of slim models can have cfw. It's probably the model you would ideally look for for easier use and longevity.
SUPERSLIM: Hen only which is almost the same depends on what you want to do.

Controllers are more a problem they are harder to come by. You can use a mix of keyboard,ds4 and ds5 and 3rd party. I use Hori wired ps4 myself.

PS3 has been superseded for homebrewing it's only really good for playing PS3 games; And most ps3 games are on PS4...

The RCPS3 emulator has made a great deal of progress and you can probably play most games if you have a good enough computer.

I have a first gen phat that is just about ready to die. For some odd reason it plays PS2 games just fine. But with PS3 games it ylods and turns off within 10-15 minutes depending on how 3d intensive the game is. Gran Turismo kills it in like 30 seconds.

Can I salvage this PS3 to use for homebrew?

Yes and no. I would lose too much time on homebrew BUT if PS2 games work it's probably the best machines for that purpose. The compatibity is rocket high.

AND it was proven the first model PS3 chipsets was NOT FAULTY and some capacitors are responsible for most failures and those same capacitors were used in some of those years laptops and having the same problem. So I would hold on to it no matter what.

For homebrew/emulation, just use Android or PC, they are king in that domain. There is a PS3 emulator now...

Hey, I got a PS3 slim that's on 4.82. This is hackable, right?

EDIT: It appears it is, cool! Is this the best way to go about hacking it:
