I upgraded my Playstation 3 to a Playstaion slim on release,only difference for me is that they have done away with the multi media card reader,there are only 2 usb ports and not the 4 like the old one.
On the plus side its less power hungry ,has a updated cell processer and graphics chip and i have a 120 gig harddrive which like you say can now be purchased with 250 gig.
Its a sexy bit of kit and i much prefer it to the older model,but saying that it does exactly the same as the previous version.
As for playstation 2 games well thats something i dont care for anyway,my personal point and reason being why buy a next so called generation playstation 3 console to play last generation games.
Apart from ico,shadow of colossus and the god of war titles i see very little point
Also playstation 2 games are not all available as playstation 3 games,there are games coming to the play3 that first appeared on the older play 2 but these are new titles.
As for eternal harddrive device then its something i dont use so i would not know the answer.If you got a 250 gig version then i dont see much of a reason to be honest.
