Since the 160GB is $20 less than the 250GB UC3 superslim bundle, that is probably why that hasn't yet had a price reduction.

if you can find it. Its sold out in alot of places, which was the point. I dont see that getting an official price drop bc it doesnt need it

PS3 is better. Vita needs more improvements (namely more games)...

The Vita should have allowed us to use our own 64 GB micro SDXC cards instead of that propriety , SLOW 32 GB card that I had to pay over $45 for.


i already have a ps3, but it'd be nice to have an extra in case someone else is playing it and i want to play a game. but i could do that with a vita too. i guess i'll see what the prices and bonuses are going to be come black friday, then make my choice accordingly.

it wouldn't be a big deal if i didn't have a wii u pre-ordered since i burned all of my gs credit on that already.

I still see the 160GB model at a few places around me, but for $20 more you get ~90GB more HDD space, a $40 UC3 GOTY, $30 in Dust DLC, and a month of PS+; makes the superslim bundle a better deal IMO...

This article suggests that there is no universal price cut on the PS3, because Sony is trying to maximize profits minimize losses for the fiscal year.


Fixed.

Seriously, as a corporation they've been losing money for four years.

It's not a car stereo. Does the PS3 actually protect the disc in the drive from damage due to moving the console (.i.e bumps on the road)? Or do you only plan to play while stopped?


It's a good question, but the double screen is designed to be used with an external DVD player or game console, according to the owner's manual. I would guess it worked okay. If not, at least the HDD should work, right? I've got a lot of digital content mostly thanks to PS Plus.

I meant the PlayStation division, that part is profitable, and apparently they are trying to maximize profits for the fiscal year...

Incorrect. The Playstation part of the Consumer Products Division lost 45 million dollars in Q1 of this fiscal year and the Q2 results should be released within the next two weeks. They have had a few profitable quarters in the last few years but mostly not profitable ones.

You're right, I had been thinking about how for the last few years that Sony was making a profit on the manufacture of the PS3, and that profit margin has probably increased with this new superslim model...

Good for them, they deserve to make a lot of money. I wish they brought the white superslim to the us and they would've gotten even more from me.

Interesting - although I spend the first minute or so thinking 'these boys have more money than sense', I have to confess it dis-proved my gut reaction that the new model was less sturdy. I've seen some other tests that say the slim is still slightly quieter (because you can't hear the disk spinning as close to the outer case), but if I am visited by the YLOD on Halloween I'd be ok with the new superslim (especially with my friends who own hammers)

Wow...add me to the list of people who are shocked at how sturdy the Super Slim's slide tray actually is. I really thought it was be cheaply made (based on appearance) and break easily via standard wear and tear.

Still have my original 60GB & a 160GB Slim. If either one ever crap out, I now wouldn't mind getting one of these.

Wonder if Gamestop would charge a refurb fee for a hammer tested console?

All joking aside I'm surprised at how sturdy the super slim is. I thought for sure that by the third drop it would be finished.

That was like SAW for electronics. Pieces of other electronics lying all over the floor, the 360 on the side being forced to watch... the guys foreign accent taking pleasure in the beatings... hilarious.

I was also pleasantly surprised how sturdy it is. Glad I actually got something from this "deal".

No matter how you guys try to justify this PS3's cheapness With hammers and jumping on it like a maniac this is still a crappy looking ps3... Ill stick to my Phat upgraded 1TB WD Scorpio PS3.. It's old but works like a charm and it shines like a ps3 is suppose to. I only use it for exclusives and ps+ anyways .... For those who don't have a ps3 this deal is a steal though. To each it's own

I hope the Vita or PS3 super slim will be on sale at Gamestop because I have a $50 gift card(from trading in my Wii) and a $25 gift card(for doing e-reward surveys).
