One of my friends wanted to buy a PS3 that could play older PS2 games(wish I could afford one ), thankfully since the PS3 hardly sells here in Egypt, few units of the old stock was still available. So after my friend and I went tracking a unit down, he asked me if there's any downside to getting an older unit. Sony must be really stupid to discontinue PS2 support from all models, they should've kept it with the highest priced model at least or something.. So is there any disadvantages? Just making sure before we go and buy it for him. Thanks!
