Could someone tell me the pros/cons over the other please.

*also my ps3 is a slim so its not BC or even semi (whatever that means) BC

There are consoles that have ps2 backward compatibility (BC). There are full BC (hardware emulation) and semi (software emulation). So, hardware are CECHA and CECHB, and software are CECHC and CECHE.

P.S. This is what I remember, sorry if I'm not right.
