I just had a few questions about the PS3 slim model and super slim model. I'm currently debating on whether or not I should buy a PS3. I already own one but I basically gave it to my mother to use for Netflix and I'm not going to take it away from her. I live near New Hampshire so I was thinking about driving up and getting it there (no sales tax :)). I wanted to ask people which PS3 I should get.
I personally hate the new design of the super slim and really like the older slim model because it has physical buttons for the power and disc eject. I guess one of my main concerns is the "ylod" or "yellow light of death". Now I already know that the ylod is not nearly as bad as the 360's rrod, but I still don't want to have to deal with it, if at all possible. Does anyone know how reliable the older slim model is and if it can get the ylod? I know there really isn't any advantage of getting the super slim model but I was curious to know if Sony tinkered with the components to fix that ylod issue?
I have a slim 360 and pre-ordered GTA 5 for it but I grew up playing GTA on the PS2 controller and GTA 4 I got originally for the PS3. So I wanted to stick with the dual shock controller for the next GTA.
So just wanted to know, if I wanted to get the older slim model is there is any reason that I shouldn't? Maybe known hardware issues that I don't know about.
