Ok by now... everyone probably has seen the new PS3 Slim. Is it just me or it looks cheap compared to the Fat PS3? LOL I'll be keeping mine.

As will I my friend. Hopefully this will entice some of my 360 friends over to the PS3 side, that's why the Slim is a good thing imo...

I like the little curve around the disc insert, but beyond that, not a huge fan of the re-design.

I kinda like it but I'd never have bothered to switch even if it was beautiful.

That is the whole idea i think-So Sony can start making a decent return on the Ps3.And after all-If it were a mobile phone,which would you pick-One made like a house brick or one like nowadays mobiles?

I like the no gloss plastic. it looks rugged. It would easily fit into a suit case or carry on for a plane trip.

I never thought someone would trade-in a good working PS3 for a re-design anyway. And if you don't have a PS3 already I doubt how the console looks would factor into your descision making process. If my PS3 breaks and I have to get a new one I'm not gonna complain about outside appearances. I just want it to play games.

The majority of people who picked "Fat PS3 FTW..." just don't want to admit that a slimmer (and more silent?) PS3 would be better because they already spent 300-400-500 or even 600$ on the fat thing.....whatever. I chose second.

I sold my fat (on ebay, didn't give it away to gamestop) one and i am going to buy the slim.. but i have reasons for it... 1.My warranty ran up on my old one and it started to get louder, so i am going to buy the slim at bestbuy with a 2 year extended warranty.. (main reason) 2. itwill be smaller, which will be better for college.. .. 3. Bigger hardrive.

Well, the good thing is, for the next month or so, you'll still be able to pick up a Fat for the same price as what the Slim will sell.

Same for some reason I like how the original console look, and the slim looks like if it falls itll break in half, Im going to look for a chubby one once I get the money for one.

i really don't like the look of it, i mean i'm glad that more people will be able to afford the ps3, but personally i love my original 80gb. But the psone and ps2 went slim, wasn't this inevitable? maybe sony should just start with a slim machine to save the reproduction and reintroduction

the only good thing about the slim is that more people will be able to buy PS3s and more development will happen because of this. Guess it's good overall but... the original looks best this time around. Best Buy has 250gig Sata drives for $64.00. I now have a 250gig PS3 so I'm happy lol

I would trade in my PS3 Fat for the Slim if there wasn't any hassle.

The Slim will never have marks from fingerprints, and I wouldn't have to clean it on a regular basis, so that's what I voted for. But, I still love my fatty. Mainly because "PLAYSTATION 3" I fully spelled out. Seriously, they could have fit the entire word, so why just have "PS3"? It seems like a weird decision...

I have to go with the fat PS3. The slim looks too dull and cheap in my opinion.

The original PS3 looks better with glossy and chrome finish IMO. Even non-gamers in my family think it looks beautiful. So they thinkthe PS3 isnot a totally waste of money.

The original PS3 looks like an expensive piece of equipment to me. The Slim PS3 looks cheap (maybe better for sales?) and like a toy.

I also like how I can set my PS3 vertical.
