    Has anyone actually bought a 120GB and filled it up or bought a 250GB and used enough of the memory that they are glad they got the 250? I want to get one, and it seems stores can't keep the 250GB's in but have plenty of the 120GB's. Is the extra memory actually worth it, or just a waste?

    I can get a 250GB at an out of the way EB that a lot of people don't know about, or I can go 2 miles down the road to Wal Mart and get the 120GB. What should I do?

    I still have lots of room on my 60 gig one, but then again I normally don't save all of the demos and crap that I download after I get bored with playing them.

    Just as a rule with computer storage: More is never enough. Now I don't have, or want, any game consoles but that would be my guide.

    Do you plan on buying and playing that many games?

    Get the 250. It's only $50 more for more than double the space. There is a LOT of content to download and more is coming all the time. For instance, I just downloaded the Bad Company 2 demo and am loving it. It's about 1 Gig in size. When one demo takes up that much space, not to mention movies, etc., why not get the bigger size?

    According to my son the 250GB PS3's are also downward compatible with the PS2 games while the 120GB version is not.

    Negative, according to their website. Neither are backwards compatible.

    That is incorrect. The only model that was backward compatible was the original 80 GB version.

    The new slim models, though, run very quietly and don't have the heat buildup. I can hardly hear mine at all, even with my ear down near it.
