Where is the best place to find the older PS3 model?
I am looking for some help (and advice) about getting a PS3. This is the first modern game system I will own other than the Wii and original Xbox (which is by no means modern).
I am looking for the version which will have backwards compatibility to play the older PS games - I have a few that I would still like to play from the PS2, such as Katamari Damacy and the Persona series.
I have no idea where I can find the older model for a good price, or if there is another solution to the backwards compatible issue for the newer model. Honestly, I have no idea what I should be looking for or where... I am looking at cowboom for a refurb one, but the descriptions don't tell me if it is the backwards compatible version or not. Are there any other places to check?
Also should I just dump this whole hunt and get the newer one for ~50 more ($200 for a refurbed bundle)? I could use advice from some of Woot!'s gamers :)
