I guess my 3 year old slim couldn't have picked a better time to crap out on me.

Just called GS, they said they don't have the SKU for the new ps3 yet but to keep calling back because they'll most likely have a trade in promo for it. So is it possible if/when they do the trade-in promo, to just cancel the preorder and then flip enough games with the credit to get the new PS3 or do they not let you get the credit back that you would get once you cancel?



I do not understand this....

Scenario, they give $120 for your PS3 (with promo) for the new PS3. You put the pre-order in and put $120 down. You then cancel the pre-order, get $120 on a gift card. Trade in $150 worth of games and put that on a gift card. So $270 total. You then use that for the new PS3 Uber-Slim. Why not just leave the $120 on the PS3 and when you trade in the games...add them to the pre-order?

Repetition in a game is NOT a bad thing, almost all games are repetitive. What matters is if YOU enjoy the game, then the repetition becomes enjoyable and doesn't feel monotonous or boring.

I don't see a 500GB AC3 bundle. Only the pre-order for the original Slim "SONY PS3 320GB Assassin's Creed 3 System Bundle" for $299.

EDIT: nevermind. Looks like Newegg's info on that item is mislabeled. The banner descriptions says 320GB and the picture shows the original-Slim, but the "Memory/Storage" description states 500 GB

Mmm the new PS3 Slim wouldn't go where I have my current gen Slim is located. I have it in a little nook so the sliding top wouldn't work for me.

I might pick it up for the living room though if there is a black friday deal on it though.

This new Slim version will also do away with the front-loading disc drive in favor of the old school top-loading disc drive.

I still have my 60GB BC PS3 and the current 160GB Slim model...so no need for this model anytime soon. Maybe when they start selling for $100.


I'm in the exact same boat. Only reason I'm even thinking of the new model is that my original 60 GB PS3 (with flash card readers and 4 USB ports) is kind of loud compared to the slim. It used to be quieter, but when it came back from Sony after a repair on the optical drive it seemed to run hotter than it had before the repair, causing he fans to go into turbo mode under lighter loads.

Concerned about the slide disc thing, looks like it might break so on the line about it

You must have missed the part about a $30 voucher that lets you download paid content for the game.

PS3 Super Slim Unboxing


Saw their pathetic sound test? All they did was put the game in. Any idiot knows that unless a game or just cd period is being used it makes very little sound. Do a loudness test with Skyrim lol

PS3 Super Cheap?

Hehe ... dunno, I'm on the fence about this now ... that sliding cover looks like something that's guaranteed to break in 5 years or less

Dookie ass prices + fake value = up

Pretty sure they just farted in my mouth with this bundle, and that's a price hike if I ever tasted one.


This is the funniest comment i've seen in a while:applause::applause::applause::applause:

And I agree. It would've been better to just release a non-bundle for 200.

Talking about xbox 360 aren't you?
PS2 was loud. I don't remember what my dreamcast sounded like.

My launch 60GB PS3 that still works gets just as loud as a 360 after being on for about 20 minutes, maybe even louder.

It's a piece of plastic, there are no moving parts, it won't break unless you sit on it.

Did they announce a price drop of the current Slim model?

Looks a lot more cheaply made than the previous slim, fortunately I won't need another PS3 (I have a few backups), because this just looks too cheap.

You randomly have boxes of consoles laying around just in case? What?

And I agree with most people, this does look smaller and cheaply made yet somehow isn't a reduction in price. Sometimes I just don't understand Sony's logic at all.

I'm passing on this thing. I'll take the current one instead and hopefully there will be a nice price drop for the 320 GB slim on Black Friday. I'm thinking $150-200.

its well known that when the zombies rise up they will accept ps3's instead of human brains.

Its a spring loaded slider. With my luck the first thing that happens is the little plastic clip breaks and I have to tape it shut anytime I want to play something.

My 60GB is still kicking, but its nice to know that when it YLODs some day this is the junk I will have to replace it with.

Im assuming that the normal slims will see a price drop? Hopefully the 160 hits 200
