We open up a 500GB super-slim PlayStation 3, and see how it compares to its bigger console siblings.
Did you enjoy this video?
Lol! Was that a nipple tweak of the controller around 1:40? :D I didn't see you buy it dinner first!
Nice to see a smaller model but I'm leery about the top loader and I'm wondering if Sony put a sufficient cooling system in it. My slim would get really hot even in a well ventilated area with a fan blowing on it. I also don't like the shiny on the super slim. My slim took a dump a few months ago and I've been without a system since the summer so I'm jonesing for a new PS3. I may stick with a slim.
i want it so bad but i already have an xbox 360
I actually use the composite AV cable to connect my ps3 to my 21" CRT tv.
I had been saving to get a 32"lcd but that plan has now gone down the drain as my ps3 YLOD and now I'll use that cash to buy a new ps3 slim.
I am perfectly fine with my slim model, thank you!
Be curious to check out the OS on the super slim PS3, the original PS3 slim shipped with extra 7.1 sound options for audio buffs.
that weirdo with the glasses has nothing better to say than "ugly, cheap, ugly, cheap". Who cares if its a bigger hdd with simpler looks outside. Buy it if u want or dont buy it if you dont want it. STFU u ugly weird looking goku wannabe with glasses dumbass.
I must remember to book the day off work when this comes out.
Yeah, that's ugly...
why did they make super slim ? wasn't that old slim good enough?
i love my ps3 slim \m/ it looks much better than this!
get these Brits off... i this America or Zionist colony?
Does anyone else think that the top disc loader looks cheap and fragile?
I will stick with my Fat version.
please send one here, me like some
I really dont like this model :( to bad
Looks fairly cheap especialy with the plastic slide disk cover. I myself would favor the slim over this one. I Wonder if this one is at least backward compatable with PS2 games aswell as the PS1 games because that could make a bit of difference in peoples buying decision. I am beginning to think that Sony is in some financial trouble either that or greed is getting to them just like many other companies around the world. We will have to wait and see how sales do, Maybe Sony will find themselves not selling to many and be forced to make changes to the console design. I Own the Fat and have since 2008 without the need to have a repair yet.
"I don't like glossy finishes" Amen to that!
It looks like my PS1.. The only reason I would get this is for reminding me of good ol' times..
No, really, I believe my PS3 slim looks much better than the super-slim version, at least when it comes to looks and the weird dvd-inserting mechanism!
- - ...$300 huh , really with that mock opening compartment they added , nope it should cost $175
Slot loading drives don't exactly instill trust in me.. I gotta say I'd much rather have a top loader for any system. Top loaders are also much more reliable in my experience.
damn...they ruined the blu-ray insertion.....sony is losing it.
I remember the days when Sony was a respected quality manufacturer, if you bought sony products you were generally buying quality goods, i dont think this is the case anymore and this iteration of the ps3 is just another example :/
I don't get why people who already own a PS3 would buy a new one. For example, the people who had the fat and then bought the slim. It seems like sheep-brain
The advantage to this model is that you can easily clean the lens.
panarama / garbage
That top loading looks so flimsy and cheap. Wth... I expected something better.
Top loading is cool as hell! Id still get the old slim though
ugliest thing in gaming history...
another slim by sony, another rip-off.
Why on earth would you want it to be portable? People play on-line in the 21st century...
As a ps3 primary user I hate this thing. Price is too high. The loading of discs is terrible... what if you need to store it on a tight shelf slot? now you won't be able to load the discs. Very bad design. If I needed a new ps3 right now I'd definitely grab the original slim version. Sony has dropped the ball on this one. Kinda embarrassing. Please don't make such dumb mistakes with the PS4.
Ok ... it's fine as long as the horsepower is the same ... BUT ... Tell me why the hell it isn't $199 yet???
I really hate the loading tray but to be honest, with most of the games going digital and with 500gb of storage, I'll only be opening it to install games or play a Blu-ray.movies anyways. (Which is rare for me) I guess it is kind of pointless for Sony to put in a super expensive disc drive in when it won't really be used or necessary. I think I'll still pass and get the slim but I love the look and the glossy finish
Is it just me, or do a lot of the Gamespot staffers bug?
I'm happy with my motorized disc loader on my slim (more convenient). This new super slim looks too cheap, and more ugly. It almost looks like an audio car amplifier.
I didn't know there was a new PS3...
How do you download games.
I want matt hardy,jeff hardy,hulk hogen , Micheal cole ,jerry the king lawrer and HBK shawn micheals.
Can you download Wwe superstars on wwe 12
I like the loading tray, it seems that has not weathering at all, looks bad but its well designed and seems very durable and that's what you should look in this kind of things, not if it is pretty or good looking...
Meh, I don't like glossy finishes and I hate that top loading tray...
@hhelljack I hear you - my slim just stopped reading BR and DVDs due to overheating. It was only 3 years old. Serious design fault in my book and I'd like to know whether the super-slim is as hot...
@SentagramFat Rules XD
@JanCarl0bc the old fats are more prone to YLOD. For example, mine just YLOD for the third time last week. Im gonna get a new system instead of repairing it again
@ronaldmcreagan so is the opposite
To be fair you shouldn't store your ps3 or xbox 360 on a tight shelf slot to begin with because of overheating. Heat is the number one enemy
@Nightrain50 they should jus keep updatin d ps3 not make a whole new system, (not like what they jus did, thou)
@slayerSS-3 wouldn't it be better if it were both durable and good looking... or maybe i'm just one of those people that just want everything... come-on Sony you do better... next time(or not).
@C-P-30 @slayerSS-3 you're not alone, i've seen plenty of people go to great lengths making their PC "look cool". sometimes even risking lost functionality lol
@C-P-30 maybe but we all know that you cant have everything and if i have to choose between durable or good looking durable will always win :)
@Kickable @C-P-30 yeah i didnt want to give that example but i know what your are talking, people that choose to buy an expensive and "good looking" case instead of putting a better cpu, motherboard, psu etc...
