I thought this new slim model was going to come out with a 16 flash memory at $200. Now it looks like only europe will get it and it will cost 229 euros witch is basically $300. I just don't get it. Plus with it being a top loader and having flash memory I think that the risk of hardware failure would drop dramatically.


Yeah, I've seen European commenters pissed off. This model will cost as much as the 160GB model! This is a price hike! Sony can't be that stupid... can they? They must have some aggresive holiday pricing in mind. Last BF they had the 160GB for $200 + 2 games and most retailers were giving a $50 gift card. I'd say hang tight until then. I agree with some of the posters, they should have had a $200 MSRP for one SKU. And I'm thinking it should be a 160GB model at least not a 16GB one. The unit is cheaper to make! And no slick front loading disc drive!

It's not until the 2 minute mark that you get a solid look at the end where the HDD used to be. I say "used to be" since I'm not seeing it on this new console. Wonder what that means :-s

Also, I predict the new Disc top will be the bane of this new console's existence.

Also, will UC3:GOTY be available separately? Withe release set for 5 days away, you would think there would be pre-order options available. Or will this just be an exclusive with the bundle


The PS BLog said the title would be available separately for $39.99. It might take a day or two for the pre-order syndrome to occur.

I'm gonna assume this will be $200 for BF based on last year. I still have both LBP2 & R&C sealed from that bundle lol.

I still have a backlog of Win 98 games sealed, at least I'm done w/ my floppies! :lol:

Thanks to whoever linked to that IGN unboxing video. Man, that lid sliding across and then having to be manually moved back into the lock position so it "clicks" into place looks like it'll break sooner rather than later. As with the Sony 3D monitors I'd advise anyone thinking about purchasing one of these to also consider adding in an extended warranty.

That thing looks incredibly cheap. If my fat ever yellow lights, I'll be digging through ebay and craigslist for the previous model.

Cost. They probably shaved a few dollars in component cost by moving to a manual loading mechanism for the disc rather than the previous motorized feed in both earlier models.

I watched a video of that top door and its some weird spring loaded thing. Looks like it will be the first thing that breaks on that console.

It's got to be somewhere considering they're selling these in Europe without any HDD but can be added in the future. I can't imagine buying one without one though unless you score a cheap hard drive because some of the game installs would wipe out most of the free space on the flash memory.

Definitely hoping for a sale on the current model in case my 120gb breaks. The super slim looks cheap and I hate the new disc drive. Sony can't possibly have done any market research on these as most of the opinions I've seen have been negative

I can't believe the price went UP. Yes, you get a pack-in game now, but still... price increases at this stage of the product life? Very strange.

Yep. Not feeling it at all and easily made my non buying decision easier. It just looks like a future nightmare.

Agreed. If it were a flip up lid like PS1 I'd be ok with that, but I definitely see this thing breaking and them wanting $150 to replace it. What a joke.

A top loader? I understand why they did it but i thought we left the top loader behind last gen. Didn't think i would ever see one on future consoles again But sony proved me wrong. Also, This console is just unappealing. My current slim is far superior.

Wow we may have some great news coming up.

The new PS3 model has been unveiled today, there will be two models, a 500GB HDD and a 12GB Flash drive.

Heres the kicker. "Gamers who plump for the 12GB Flash Drive model will also be able to expand the storage capacity by connecting a dedicated HDD (250GB) to be released concurrently with the new PS3. !"

Lets pray this new external HDD is compatible with all PS3 and we can store PSN games on it.

(quoted from a different thread here on CAG)

Anyone heard this before? I haven't & can't find anything one way or the other. This could explain the lack of accessible HDD. But would an external HDD use 1 of the 2 USB's? That'd suck balls.

EDIT: just found this. Must be what my quote was referring to:

Even w/ the price increase of the the new slim & WiiU coming out, the PS3 is still the best deal.

From what I understand you have to remove the SSD to install a normal HDD, you can't have both.

Tremendous value, if I didn't already have a PS3, I'd probably get this.

It didn't, its just the base PS3 Slim model in the US is the 250 GB which is $269, which is $20 more than the previous base 160 GB PS3.

If I hadn't just bought a 320 gb slim bundle like 6 months ago I wouldn't even hesitate to buy this full price.
