so im at *insert popular game store here* and im telling the guy about ps3 paying ps2 games, and he claims the only model that does is the 60gb model.. well i tell him i have an 80gb model that does from a motorstorm bundle and he never heard of it and didnt believe me that they ever released such a thing. so it got me wondering.. is the 80gb that plays ps2 games a rare find?

Is it true or false that the only backwards compatible PS3 are the PS3s that have the flip up front panel with the SD Card Slots??

false. 20gb launch ps3s didn't have card slots. but yeah, if it has card slots its got backwards compatability.

I think there is one more way to look at it. As when store recruits knowledgeable people, they lose touch with specs and game titles. so they are not always updated with games. so it happens.

It depends on the store. Never trust big box employees for anything. Smaller stores the guy might know but things like the backwards compatibility of PS3's I wouldn't expect from a guy at the store that probably owns a 360.

yes that is also one way to look. small store keeps stuff they know and for sure how to sell it but not like big shops who just oversells it.
