The price went up because it includes more storage space. People are acting as if they are the same exact thing.

We all know the storage size went up; it's still odd to be effectively raising the price this late in the device's life.

As someone who can't wait for the non-bundled $249 version of the slimmer, I'm trying to decide between waiting to buy the new one next week vs. paying an extra $30 to buy one of the 320 GB bundles (probably Madden). My BC 60 GB ps3 died last week & I have games to finish before the new fall games hit.

One advantage of the slimmer, it won't swallow the disc when it dies like my ps3 did (power light flashes red at startup and shuts off right away).

My main concern is when this Super Slim PS3 is standing vertically how secure the game disc will be. Up to now the PS3 some how "sucked" the game disc; which is one reason we never suffered disc scratches like the Xbox360 owners. Yes I know blue ray discs are coated with a very tough protective layer. That's not what I'm focusing on =) This new layout looks like the game disc is merely pressed onto a spindle.

My secondary concern is the durability of new "sliding door" mechanism. It might be just fine. Hell, I have a 15 year old IBM PC tower that has a similar sliding door & it still works. But what happens if the door starts to catch on the body of the console? That won't look pretty in short order.

Looks like I should pick up one of the current slims now as a "backup" in case my 80GB YLOD's again.

Though, if it YLOD's again, I'm screwed out of my content anyway, so maybe I should retire her....But he was built so well.....


You could always just get a PS+ subscription and use the cloud save to make sure you don't lose your game files and whatnot if you do get YLOD. The cloud limit has been upped to 1 GB.

I don't understand how there is so much complaining in this thread but MS continually releases $300-400 bundles with nothing more than Kinect or some other garbage that no one wants. Plus 360 is just a vastly inferior machine to the PS3.

I don't understand your confusion. We're not talking about Microsoft Xbox360's, we're talking about Sony PS3 systems. Apples and Oranges.

Saw an unboxing of the Super Slim. To me, I imagine a lot of those game lids/covers on the Super Slim will be broken.

The confusion arises from all the complaining in this thread but not nearly as much as in the Xbox 360 thread which has more expensive bundles.

But it's easy to understand, it's Sony. Everything Sony does is wrong. I don't know when this happened, but Sony is now always wrong with whatever they do.

Let's be honest, guys, if this model came with a free foot rub, people would complain that they don't get a back rub too.

I preordered a Wii U deluxe, but if this BF there is an epic deal on a PS3, I'm all over it.

Irregardless this is a nice bundle.

I think you're in the wrong thread. This thread is for the SONY PS3(PlayStation 3) Super Slim which has a door that, to me, seems like it's going to stop sliding back and forth and looks cheaply made.

Looks stronger than any other door or hinge on a previous system, and I can't recall a single system to have any of their doors or hinges break. In 10 years when your Slim dies you will be running around trying to find a used Slimmest, just like people did with the PS2.

Yes, this is going to replace the older models. I'm hoping I can eventually get the current slim version at a good discount before they stop producing it and stores no longer carry it.


Besides the cost cutting measures, I'm not aware of any functionality being added or removed in this new model.


Damn. Just checked with Best Buy and Gamestop to see if theyd heard anything about the older models being discontinued and they hadn't yet, so im still gonna hope this isn't the case, but im starting to think it is. I REALLY hope they dont ditch the old model. This new model looks unbelivably cheap. I still regret not getting a backup PS2 fat when they switched over. I dont want to be in the same boat again with this


Looks like I should pick up one of the current slims now as a "backup" in case my 80GB YLOD's again.

Though, if it YLOD's again, I'm screwed out of my content anyway, so maybe I should retire her....But he was built so well.....


I'm in the same boat as you. I have an older model with almost no HD space. It stopped reading disks so i bought a newer slim, but id really like to have a backup in case this slim dies on me.

Anyone have any guesses on when they may start dropping the older models on sale? Im not even sure what models would be the best to get. I think the only 320gb ones were the Uncharted 3 bundle, and the Modern warfare bundle, right? The Uncharted 3 bundle is actually the one i bought last year. Id actually prefer a cheap 320gb core model, but im pretty sure there aren't any of those out there anymore.

Ungh.. seriously, am i the only one thats amazed at how cheap and terrible that looks? Honestly this thing looks more like a cheap Chinese knock off PS3 than a real actual model Sony is dumping on people. Seriously.. wtf Sony? I cant belive some of you are actually defending that crap.

So it would be better if they had a more expensive shiny looking console and went out of business? Obviously you don't realize the state of the company. They need to make cost cutting measures like this. You should be happy they're so that PS4 has a great chance of being all it can be. In regards to your question, there were other 320gb models like the Infamous 2 bundle and they sold the 320gb standalone.

Actually, I like the ridges on it. And, I'd get it if I can get it like I did my 160gb slim...$300 at Target with $160 back in gift cards.

I agree with all you guys on the sliding, plastic lid being cheaply made. I just saw a Youtube IGN's unwrapping video of the new slim PS3, and half-way through the video when IGN was talking about the new sliding lid, it snapped open and startled both reviewers. And this is a brand new machine that the lid just snapped open from. That hinge/spring that's holding that lid is not going to hold up long at all. Can't wait to see in a few months after these new slimmer PS3 are released before people start crying foul all over the net. Can't wait to see the teardown people dissect this new PS3.

Saw this video. I don't mind the cheap sliding door. I'll probably have to put tape on it to hold down in about 10 years if I get this on release day.

$30 difference from my PS3's MSRP isn't going to get me to own 2 PS3s at the moment. For now, I'll keep my 160 gb slim and probably invest in a larger hard drive though.
