Not true

There have been quite a number of revisions of both the original PS3 and the PS3 slim including e.g. multiple processor die shrink, cooler, quieter models, lack of PS2 chip, many many hard drive changes between different models. For xbox 360 probably similar amount of revisions.

I count 4

In the wiki the graph shows four models (which can be easily differentiated, unlike the little code that says there is like 30 models). The first two models have the PS2 capability, card reader and 4 USBs, The third and fourth don't have those and the fourth is the slim one.


It takes about 1-6 months for people to get bored of their current handhelds. When they see a new shiny model of the same handheld they go out and buy it asap, even if the games/apps/whatever are the same.
