I personally prefer the new logo. It looks more slim & sleeker. Plus you get more cover artwork since you don't have the vertical "Playstation 3" on the left side.

I prefer the new one overall. More real estate for the cover art.

I fucking hate the new one. Doesn't the old have more space for art? Look at Uncharted 2, the covers are identical except Drake's hand is missing in the new art. Lame.

Poll seems 50/50 right now. I really like the new box art style. They kept the more old school PS2/PSP look with it. I wish Tekken 6 came with the cover style.

dammit i didn't know they changed it. I hate the new covers especially the bar on top, feels like it shrinks the picture... greatest hits covers look better than the new, atlest it has a thinner bar up top.

I hate the new spine, only because now my games are going to look all mismatched on my shelves. Plus, I've always liked the Spiderman font... it's sad to see it go. :(

I do it like this: (From Right to Left)

Old PS3 boxes
New PS3 boxes
GH boxes (I have none of these)

But the new Spine is really dumb because of the drop down.

I actually like the layout of the new ones, but I could go without either (new or old) font. Horrible.

I don't mind it I just wish they at least kept the little red box on the spine so that everything matches up

was never a fan of the old version's spine (red was too conspicuous), but I prefer the layout on the front to the new one. Or maybe I just prefer the font, I'm not sure. Neither was/is spectacular.

That's pretty much what I do, organize my PS3 boxes that way.

I prefer the newer ones overall. The front and back of the PS3 cases, I'm mixed. However, the new spine on the side is WAY better IMO.

The new ones. The Spiderman font was a terrible choice and it looked incredibly tacky. The new covers are an improvement but there is too much on the top of the box art. The new logo is much better, it has more of a Wii look to it (which I'm sure is not a coincidence).

The new looks better, but it sucks that they changed it a couple of years into the console's life cycle.

Money comes and goes, but deals don't last forever ;)


If anime was mainstream, would it be as satisfying?

Sony changed PS1 cases and Sega changed DC cases. That's why I see no problem. Sony pretty much had to change the PS3 cases because Sony needed to completely re-brand PS3. What they did seems to be working very well.

Yeah, and it fits in with the other changes going on with the PS3. Like the Slim & the price cut.

I prefer the old one, but the new one isn't terrible. The spine actually looks better to me and I understand the need for the placement and the use of PS3 as it stands out more to consumers. As others have said, unfortunately it doesn't merge well with the previous purchases games in my collection.

I think the way Sony has launched the Slim has been impressive. Excellent marketing campaign and a nice redesign of the console and box art.

Yeah, they finally are using commercials that are focused to the mainstream. Not just people with good video game backgrounds.

The old, just becuase I seriously fucking hate that new PS3 slim bubble font. I really, REALLY hate that font. My gut actually twisted when I upgraded my firmfare and realized I'd have to look at that during startup now, then though it's only for a few seconds. Never minded the spidey font.

(And yes, I realize it's a stupid thing to get worked up over... but for some reason,as far as systems go, the little details set me off more than anything that really matters.)

I had forgotten that one. The long boxes were already gone by the time I had gotten a Playstation though. That one WAS a good change.

The Dreamcast one was annoying. This one is less so.

I hate it when they redesign boxes mid-generation.


This with a caveat.

The Sega Genesis switch to the red borders was awesome. It really made the whole Sega section in stores stand out in the mid 90s with purple borders for Game Gear games, red borders for Genesis games, yellow borders for 32x games, and blue borders for Sega CD games.

:( <----- Still sad about Sega dying out. No company that made Crazy Taxi should ever be reduced to Sonic Unleashed.

As many of you know, black ops 2 is plaid with bugs, lag etc which many people have been suffering including me.
