Having waited for the price of the 80GB unit to drop, I just purchased a new 80GB PS3. I wanted this unit as according to Sony's Website, only the 80GB will play PS2 games as well. What a nasty surprise to find that it will not play PS2 games! Is there some type of firm ware I need to down load to allow it to play older games or am I screwed? Anyone else with this "exciting" sitiuation???
