Got mine today and the thing is amazing. Have had it on almost all day since about 11AM downloading stuff, the console is barely even warm. My Slim would have been warm/hot by now

Its light as hell, and the sliding door is more sturdy than I thought. My only complaint is that the stupid formatting basically drops the available size of the 500GB down to like 410GB.

So where does the 90gb go or get used on?

Nothing lol. It took like 45GB for the usual formatting that all hard drives do, then just takes another 40 something off just for the hell of it. I assume it has something to do with how the PS3 works, still no idea why it needs so much

yeah that pissed me off too although my usable space was 415gb. I was also pissed off to do a restore from my last PS3's backup and the games didnt transfer over. WTF? It was one of the main reasons why I wasnt so upset about my old one getting a YLOD. So Ive had my super slim since Tuesday and mainly been downloading all my old stuff

Mine said 419 at first, then said 412. No idea why it changed, but whatever. Still beats my old 120GB by a mile, the thing was dying on me anyway

I recently got a 320gb ps3, but it only says 298 gb. My 120 GB ps3 only said it had like 111 gb too.

Anyway the Threadstarter came through, to be honest, i think last years deal was better. I guess it's ok for newcomers, as you get the two best franchises. But they're old and can be found cheap now, and not that enticing for ppl who already have ps3's. I thought PS All-Stars would've been a great to bundle with.

The PS3 at this price is a great deal. The games included are just icing on the cake. I cant say last year was better. The deal is comparable and the games included this time are better

From the look of things All-Stars is Sony's leading first party title, with a lot of marketing dollars behind it. They probably wouldn't be eager to give that away in a discounted BF bundle...

to be honest, when they announced the super-slim I thought the MSRP was gonna be $200. The deal is comparable, but I thought it'd be better since it's a year later and new model. The games in last year's bundle were also just newly released.

That is true, it also comes out same week I think. But last years bundle also had recently released games. And PSAllstars has a bunch of great Playstation characters, that once you'll play them, you'll be interested and buy their own game. It worked for me with Twisted Metal.

Including R&C All 4 One was a surprise, but it wasn't marketed nearly as much as I think All-Stars will. The other game, LBP 2, had already been out for a year.

I think it is unfortunate that All-Stars is the leading game from Sony. I would much rather it had been the Last of Us, but it is probably best to let AC3 and Black Ops have the holiday season...

Well the LBP2 was the GOTY edition which just came out, but you're right. I also think they could've just sold the AC3 Bundle for Black Friday instead for $200. That would've definetly excite people. A 500 GB (412GB) hard drive, and AC3 which comes with exclusive misssions. But we'll see. Like I said Uncharted & Infamous are the best franchises, it's good for newcomers but not that enticing for ppl looking for second ps3's.

Arkham City GOTY for $20? Was going to bite on the Vanilla version for about the same price, looks like I'm waiting a few weeks.

Any chance of getting the full ad posted?

Ratchet A4O was newly released nowhere near as good as Uncharted 1, Uncharted 2, Infamous 1 or Infamous 2. All games are winnrs there. Last year's bundle best title was LBP2 and that was almost a year old at that point

Nice deal. I'm still with by 160GB fat PS3, so I'm not going for it. But if I was in the market for a new one, I'd jump at this.

better games? sure, better value? no, the msrp for those two games combined are $60. and the lbp2 was the goty edition that came with $40 of DLC that came out that month, so it was still relatively new. look if this bundle is ur thing, more power to you. those are great games. i just dont think there are many ppl who have ps3's that dont already own those. if it's their first ps3 ever, than its a good deal, and id reccomend buying it. i just expected better value

Man, I was really excited for this new slim, but after watching some videos and pictures I really dont like the design of it. I get that it saves some manufacture cost and that savings is passed on, but I really dont like that top loading disc drive.

Doesn't really matter for me though as it wouldn't work in my current set up since the top of my PS3 is blocked. I would have to move it somewhere away from my TV and run a long HDMI since I dont have room on top of my TV stand.

Great deal if you dont have a PS3 yet, I'd say just save that money for the next console if you already have a normal slim. If your phat is getting old, maybe get this and transfer your stuff before it dies and lose all your saves and

This is an awesome deal! I would buy it right away but since I already bought the first slim last month, I don't need a second one. If you have never owned a PS3 then you should really get this! There are many awesome PS3 exclusives. I am currently playing Uncharted 2 right now and I am loving it (: If you get this bundle and you have never played Uncharted before, I recommend playing Uncharted 2 first. The first Uncharted is good but too much shooting :/ You could also play it on normal or easy, I played it on hard and I found it frustating instead of fun.

Still not thrilled with the pack in games since I already have them but since I need another PS3 since my died and I have $175 in GC at Target makes it a no brainer. Thankfully Halo 4 will hold me over until BF but then its ACIII and CoD for me on a new PS3.

Can't wait for the next Uncharted and Halo on my next-gen systems!

Alright, now all I need is someone to tell me what a Shopko is and how I give it my money. Wouldn't mind picking up this bundle + LBP Karting and Arkham City GOTY.

I wonder what the likely hood of the regular slims going on sale during BF. These super slims are really nice but i prefer the slot loading systems honestly. Hoping to possibly get the mw3 bundle on sale. I know they are discontinued but I see there are quite of few at gamestops around my area and Amazon even has the mw3 and uc3 bundles still.
