I think any PS3 will play PS1 games. I've had the 80 gb PS3 for years now, and it plays PS1 games just fine.

All PS3's will play PS1 games, but I'd advise that you do not buy a refurbished 60 GB model. I bought my first PS3 as a used one off of eBay (it appears to have been repaired at some point) and it died after 3 months. I regretted buying it as soon as I did, but I was stuck with a dead PS3. I'm now on a slim at it works just fine for PS1 games. I've played them via remote play on my Vita

if your trying to save money, buy a 160gb slim, as they are good, and since they are not huge, they wont costs a lot.

100% wrong.  ONLY the first generation Fat PS3s with 4 USB ports on the front of it will play PS2 games.  Slims and Super Slims will 100% not play PS2 discs at all.  

 

PS1 is natively supported in ALL models of the PS3.

No problem.  Just didnt want the uninformed masses reading that and then posting a wall of grammatically atrocious "leet-speak" crying about how they are Sony's most loyal customer and they deserve to be able to play any game they want on their PS3.  Hehe.  That just gets old after one time.  :smileytongue:
