Interesting as I read some reviews that claimed the Super Slim is the quietest PS3 yet.
And perhaps you're not crazy about the controller, because some people posting about the Killzone controller bundle say the controller isn't as rugged as before. Completely believable that Sony would sacrifice something while cost-reducing the DS3. Just look at the Super Slim.
I don't want to have to pay more for a Slim that, on paper, has inferior specs. But I will, as I have paid more to get previous generations of several Sony products that they've ruined.

This might sound crazy, but even the controller that comes with this bundle feels cheaper than my original ds3.
If I could trade this model for a slim, I would, but given that this is the cheapest way to get a ps3, I wouldn't pay more for a slim ... just wish the bundle was higher quality ... in this case, it's a good value but you are definitely getting what you pay for.
