I've fixed an xbox 360 before. I don't care for the 360 exclusives so much, I like the PS3 ones a lot more.

I don't understand why the first generation PS3s were and now they are not. GG Sony!
The PS3 is backwards compatible with PS1 games, just not PS2 games. All my PS1 games seem to work with my PS3 slim.
