It was true? Wow!

I don't own a PS3, yet. But this one sounds interesting, considering the price of it! I could actually afford it.

But for now, I'll just stick to my PS2. :]

The PS3 may be cheaper now, but it's not like companies are going to want to develop for the PS3 any more than they did six months ago. PS3's install base is too small, its almost as tough to develop for as the Saturn, and the cost of development is higher. Sony should chalk PS3 up as a loss and immediately start planning their successor console.


agreed.

I sold my PS3 and pre-ordered the Slim.

Pre-ordered it on amazon.com. All together with the shipping, it came out to $314

It ships on September 1st, I can't wait


Mind if I ask why? I have the 80GB PS3, and don't see a point in trading it for a slim. The only thing it would do for me is save on electricity since my PS3 is pretty much on 24/7 (though it's off while I sleep).

1.) I like getting things the moment they come out lol
2.) I wasn't able to get the 60 gb the day it came out and actually ended up getting the 80gb, so this is my revenge lol
3.) I can buy this and sell it for a lot more due to other people like me that want things the moment they come out lol
4.) I just like it. Kinda cool to me. Uses less power, lighter, much smaller.
5.) No real super solid reasoning, I just want one lol

well if you play ps2 and ps1 games in your ps3 you might want to reconsider selling it, if you dont play ps2 or ps1 then sell away man.

i hate buying things when they come out, they are always so crappy and defective.

8P I already have a PS3
I prefer the looks of the big fat PS3 over the slim
The slim reminds me of a binder, then a DVD player

When can I get the new PS3 Slim?

It'll be widely available as of September 1 for $299.

What are the major physical differences between the new PS3 Slim and the previous versions of the PS3?

Sony has pretty much crammed the same hardware into a smaller form factor. The new chassis is thinner vertically and horizontally, but it is deeper than the previous PS3--it's almost a square. The front power and eject buttons are now actual, depressable keys (not touch-sensitive), and there's also no standby power switch on the console's rear panel.

Are there any notable feature differences?

The new model has a 120GB hard drive, up from the 80GB model on the previous entry-level model. Geeks will lament that Sony has removed the ability to install a second operating system, but that won't be missed by the vast majority of mainstream users.

Does it play PS2 games?

No dice. Like the recent PS3 models, the PS3 Slim does not offer backward compatibility with PS2 game discs. However, it can play older PS1 titles (on disc or via download from the PlayStation Store.)

Are there flash card readers?

Again, no. Ports for Compact Flash, Memory Stick, and SD cards existed on the earliest PS3 models, but they were dropped on more recent iterations. If you want to access digital media files, you'll need to put them on a USB drive, burn them to a disc, or access them over the network.

Any change to media support?

No differences that we can discern. The PS3 Slim still plays all manner of Blu-ray movies, DVDs, and CDs, and it doubles as an excellent media streamer from other PCs or DLNA-capable media servers.

What's in the box?

Just the basics: the console, a single Dual Shock 3 controller, USB cable (for charging the controller), AC power cord, and composite AV cable. There are no bundled games in this version of the PS3.

Did Sony finally add an IR port, so I can use my universal remote control?

In a word: nope. That's our biggest gripe with the new model. Owners of Logitech Harmony remotes, however, can still use the $60 adapter that will translate IR commands to Bluetooth.

Is the hard drive still user-upgradeable?

Yes--you can still do a DIY upgrade with a standard 2.5-inch laptop hard drive. We'll update our How-To video to give you a step-by-step guide for the PS3 Slim soon.

Can I stand the PS3 Slim vertically?

Out of the box, the answer is no. Ironically, it's so skinny, it'll tip over too easily. However, Sony is pledging to sell a stand separately--in other words, you'll be paying $24 for a hunk of plastic.

Is it really cheap-looking?

Opinions in the office are divided on this one. Some folks are really chafing at the textured matte finish, saying it makes the unit look cheap and plasticky--like a toy. Others (like me) prefer that to the shiny piano black finish of earlier PS3s, which was a magnet for fingerprints. Editor Jeff Bakalar, meanwhile, likens the square-ish design of the Slim to that of a record player.

Is it true that a 250GB PS3 Slim is coming soon?

Apparently so. Sony's made no official comment, but a more capacious PS3 Slim will certainly hit store shelves at some point--likely at the $399 price point.

Should I wait for the Slim, or buy one of the existing "PS3 Fat" consoles, now that they've also been cut to $299?

Unless you're particularly averse to the new design, it's definitely worth waiting a couple of weeks.

O_o lol, the system came out about two years ago. Also it's not like it's the PS4, this is just a smaller/slimer version of the PS3.

The new version is going to be faster than the previous version due to new IBM chips that are installed in them.

The 45-nm cell processors are 34 percent smaller and drain 40 percent less power from the system all while improving the overall speed of the system.
