If this is true I'll get rid of my PS3 and pick this one up. This probably won't have any BC right?

No you can't. :)

I have the 80 GB. I don't like the current PS3 model. It's too damn big and gets dirty way too easily. It's purely personal preference.

Okay, and now I think it's real, there's just so much good evidence that either it's a very elaborate hoax (so elaborate that you really can't blame anyone for thinking it's real) or it is indeed real.

There's two features I'd want to see that would make me consider selling my old backwards compatable PS3 for a new system. Turns out I don't use the BC all that much so I can do without.

First is the ability to use the Bluetooth 2 (or was that 3) feature that allows you to output all audio to a headset, not just voice comms, at high quality. This is already being used in portable media players like the Samsung P2 and P3, and there's already some good headphones/headsets out there that make use of this.

The second feature is for powered USB ports while the system is shut down (but not off via the back switch). It was seriously bad design to require the PS3 controllers to be recharged seperately via another USB device while there's 2 perfect good USB ports on the system.

I think many others here would also consider an upgrade if functionality was improved somehow.

Sony should just make PS3s and give Blu ray players the ability to play PS3 games. Make it so that no matter what you buy you get a game playing device.

Yeah, make all Blu-ray players be PS3s... That makes perfect sense...:dunce:




the only real difference is the casing... what is the difference between a 300 dollar PS3 and a 300 dollar blu ray player. Its clearly better for Sony to sell PS3s so make a Blu Ray player in a blu ray player case that has the extra feature to play ps3 games.

Isn't there more difference than just the casing? Do bluray players have a Cell processor?

that's why I'm suggesting that they just add the chip to some of the blu ray player models and sell them as Blu ray players, but with PS3 gaming capability. Same blu ray casing, just an added chip for gaming functions - along w/ blue tooth and whatever else is needed. Like the Panasonic Q (which is the best example of what I'm thinking of... or rather the Sega CDX - which was like a regular CD player but it was also a Sega CD ) THe purpose of this is just to sell PS3s to those customers who may be looking for a Blu ray player only. Honestly, I like the blu ray player model designs better than I like the ps3 model design.

you mean to tell me that a new model of PS3 can't be made using a more standard blu ray casing... of course there would be some differences.

you what makes you such a queef is that instead of trying to understand what I'm saying (assuming I'm saying it wrong) you try to make a joke of the situation. Its like you think you might be cool.. like Dilian from 91210.


or 90210.. you seem like the person that would like that type of garbage, probably have that game for your DS... Beverly Hills 90210 Touch

Thomas96, what you say wouldn't work because you can't just use a "chip" to add ps3 functionality to a blu ray player. It has special circuitry, including Input/Output functions, a graphics processing unit, and the cell processor. To make a blu-ray player be able to play ps3 games would for all intents and purposes, be a PS3 in a different casing. There's no cost-cutting going to come of it. And it wouldn't be a way to pander game capability to blu-ray owners, as that's what the ps3 already did early in its life. Now players can be had below 200 dollars. That market is gone for the ps3.

Er, back OT: 1UP made a good point about the engadget cease-and-desist. The "leak" could be for a "knockoff" system sold only in China, and the company responsible simply doesn't want Sony to sic their legal team on them.

I heard it wasnt Sony (at least in Kotaku's case), but the factory that the photos are from...or something like that...so thats why there is still some speculation and what not.

Source:

Late last week, we posted what appeared to be the first pictures of the PLAYSTATION 3 "Slim". Taiwan-based attorney Li Mo & Associates contacted us, potentially giving credence to the validity of the pictures. In their email, the firm stated that these "trade secrets" had been posted online and demanded that the images be taken down "immediately" in a cease-and-desist. However, this legal notice did not come from Sony, who still has yet to comment on the images.

And so that bother's you so much you feel the need to respond back.. you're in the PS3 forums, my area. Go back and talk shit in the Lifestyle & Off Topic area, like you normally do. I don't whose ovaries you borrowed, but I'm surprised you're bold enough to even talk trash to me directly. And give those ovaries back to their owner.

I understand that it would require more than just adding a chip.. the main issue is that is it even worth it do it. Like you said players can be had for under 200 dollars. It doesn't matter, its not like changing the PS3 casing to look more like a regular blu ray player is going to make an increase in sales.

This is the slimmer, cheaper PS3 for Sony, not for the consumers. I just don't think that any PS3 w/ a 120gb hd will be 300 dollars, or anything under 400. HOwever, if I'm wrong and this 120gb PS3 is 300 then I think its a good deal. Its important that Sony has a product that's not only cheap, but makes consumers feel like they're getting a good deal.

Well, hopefully if its cheaper to make, they will lower the price. However, I think they may keep it at the $399 price point and just hope demand goes up. I imagine that may work as well...
