Super Slim PlayStation 3 To Be Released This Month

During today’s Tokyo Game Show session, Sony unveiled a new ultra slim PlayStation 3 that will be released later this month.

The new PS3 will be available in two different models, with 250GB and 500GB HDDs. It also features a smaller, streamlined design that is approximately 20% smaller and 25% lighter than the current PS3.

The 250GB PS3 will be available on September 25th for $269.99 (MSRP) as part of a limited edition bundle featuring UNCHARTED 3: Drake’s Deception: Game of the Year Edition and a voucher for more than $30 worth of bonus digital content for the highly acclaimed digital title, DUST 514.

Are you all really that into yourselves that you consider what something "LOOKS" like before you think about what it does, how much it costs or anything else that's actually relative?! What f'ing age are we in where form 'beats' function? I'm not saying PS3 is awesome, I'm saying take a second to assess what a company is doing in Market Strategy before you go around saying stupid shit like "I'm not putting that by my TV stand cuz it's not shiny enough". How about you guys make more constructive criticism before sounding like you're 12 with no depth of character nor personality. _*OPINION*_ Sony has made this move to suck more money out of people's pockets with something they don't 'have' to buy because other options ARE's a rip off.

Looks Like it was made in China

This new (slim) cough, console, looks like some kind of workout board. Who in there right mind could possibly have let this get past management. What an eye sore. This new redesigned console makes Quasi Moto The Hunchback of Notre-dame look somewhat handsome. No thanks. Xbox360 here I come.


Indeed it does look cheap..... I think these people who design these products for SONY need to start hiring people from Samsung or Apple and get their consoles reduces by %50 percent in size. I wouldn't want this junky looking product near my $2500 entertainment system. This is something you hide so your friends don't think you're buying cheap Chinese junk. This product was ugly and cheap looking before. It looks even cheaper and somewhat just as ugly as the previous one.


Don`t own a console. I just think this looks a black plastic radiator from the 70`s. Maybe you`re not old enough to remember Rediffusion and how hideous it looked ? I`m glad you like it but to me it`s an eyesore and cheap looking. The recessed slats just scream nasty. To each their own.

So, because it has a subtle,

So, because it has a subtle, classic, refined look instead of blue flashing LED's and hideous bulk, it's ugly? 'Ugly' is the first generation of Kindle, this is at the very most unremarkable. Saying it's outright ugly is just fanboyish trolling. And I'm pretty sure Reddifusion were a telecom brand, not a type of plastic radiator (? Could you even make a radiator out of plastic without having a horrific accident - my captcha 'science project' is relevant here).

Called It!

I called this move back when they released the first version of the PS3 slim (don't tell me you didn't think this either...). Sony didn't design the current 'slim' model with an external power source like in the previous PS2 slim. Whether or not they 'will' do this for the new slim PS3 "may" even determine another (forshadowed) move to create a 4th generation slim later on, simply to extend the PS3's lifespan to their original promise of 10 years...just sayin'. Some premium brain food! Nom Nom Nom

Can't, the whole point of

Can't, the whole point of consoles is that no matter which model people own the hardware is exactly the same(minus hdd). So devs dont have to worry about games behaving differently in each machine as they do with pcs. If it runs fine on their test box it will run fine in all consoles of that brand.

wow, someone is wrong....

wow, someone is wrong.... there are faster versions of consoles, the xbxo 360 elite was slightly faster than other xbxoes, the ps2 had several faster versions the psp 2000 and 3000 were both faster than the 100 and the first ps3 was faster than the second editon and also contained a ps2.
