You guys who already have PS3s realize that you don't have to buy this, right? It's okay not to.

Yup! That's the one.

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.

I think this thing is ugly. I also hate that they changed how discs go in/out. That was always such a classy part of the PS3. Why take it away? I think now is the time to go buy the nice slim, while they are still out there.

Don't mind the re-design, not a fan of sliding door but wouldn't mind picking one up as a back up down the line, whenever GS decide to clearance them out just like the PS2 Slims.

The only reason why I might get it is for 500 gb plus assassins creed 3 for only $299. That is a steal. To bad the top loader is really stupid and takes a way the classy part of a ps3!

I jokingly, JOKINGLY, thought the same thing. This new slim is ugly in every possible way. Both previous models of the PS3 have been very classy. This looks cheap, and of a lower build quality. The only thing it has going for it is a massive amount of HD space.

They have already announced that the old slim will not be discontinued and will not drop in price. I'm not sure why its still being discussed.


Partially correct. They are going to keep selling the old slim until stocks are exhausted and there will not be an official MSRP drop. Having said that, this new slim will be the only design available within a matter of months as no new versions of the old slim are going to be produced going forward. Here is the quote from the Engadget article -

"Koller says the new model is Sony's new standard, with previous models going the way of the Puerto Rican shrew (poor little guy is totally extinct)."

Who announced it and when? Everything I read suggests it is. They will sell out what they produced and that's it, they will only produce the new top loading ones.

He clearly accidentally pushed the front switch with his middle finger that releases the lid because he didn't know it had a button to do that. Guess you're not very good at visual processing. Now go back into your hole, troll.

I think the system looks pretty good, at least from the shots. Looks like a sports car or something. :P

The price baffles me, though. Guess it's selling well enough?

So whens the release date on both? Not seeing it anywhere.


Also, any reason why a GameStop employee would tell me the slimmer isn't coming out til Late november and that it's $350?


Yes, probably many reasons, but the main one is that none of them know anything.

I would have been all over this if Sony would have included PS2 backwards compatibility. But, yeah that's never gonna happen.

It's like Sony is trying to tell me not to bother buying any PS3.

I thought the BF 2011 prices/packages was just a bit too high (price of games and all considered) and decided to wait until this year or later...wait, the BF 2012 deal is going to be pretty much the same and there's no telling if it will get better until long after the PS4 is out.

Once again Sony shoves the price of its product on the consumers and adds tons of spin. This is fucking something else - just looking at that "want is value" line makes me :applause: out of sheer stupidity.

BTW, thank you all for the good information replies. MrBubbles, I did not know that and that is very helpful.

I think to please all of those who don't get the value in the playstation 3 sony should release a model with 4GB flash memory (only upgradeable with expensive propetiary memory) no WiFi, no bluetooth, no blu-ray and price it at $150. They should also remove the rechargeable battery pack in the DS3 and make sure they run on AA's.

Then we'll see who has balls to complain

You misunderstand the complaints. What they want is a model with 500GB space, WiFi, Bluetooth, Blu-Ray, at least 4 USB slots, and full PS2 B/C for $150, all while keeping the same "classy" expensive parts from previous systems.

Granted, there would still be some complaints about something, but that would hit most of them. It would also drive Sony out of business, but who cares about small shit like that?

A PS3 + 2 games for $199 was too high for you? Oh boy

The price should not baffle you in the slightest. Sony had a price drop a year ago and it didn't really help much. Sony is in serious financial trouble and the Vita isn't doing that well despite being a great system with some great games. It's no more simple than the fact that they cannot afford to lower the price of the Vita yet and they need PS3 to be profitable for the rest of the company and for PS4.

So whens the release date on both? Not seeing it anywhere.


Also, any reason why a GameStop employee would tell me the slimmer isn't coming out til Late november and that it's $350?


250 gb bundle
- $269.99 Sept 25 that includes:
- Uncharted 3 GOTY Edition
- $30 of DLC for Dust 514
Older PS3 Slims will still be available for $249.99 possibly with games/giftcards until they sell out. Then when the 250gb bundle sells out, the new Slim will be sold standalone for $249.99.

500 gb bundle
$299.99 Oct 30
- includes Assassin's Creed III

Then probably better bundles on Black Friday. While a price drop would've been nice, they've found a great way to clear out the current Slim without having to lower it's price and pay retailers. Helping Sony to survive while also giving some great value with the bundles for core gamers.

If only they would do that. I already had to toss a sixaxis because it would no longer hold a charge. I love that I can use cheap Eneloop batteries in my 360 controllers and would love this option for the PS3. No more charging it with a short USB cord while trying to play a game. Just swap the AA's and keep on rolling.

I'm going to pick this bundle up on Tuesday, too impatient to wait for the AC3 bundle in October/black friday. I hope the build quality isn't as terrible as others are making it seem.

I hadnt been following this too close because the thing looks bad and is at a bad price imo but if that 500GB w/ Assassins Creed 3 is really $299.99 thats really not bad.

Any black friday/Amazon Warehouse type deals on these things will make them great buys.
