Another useless product from Sony. They shouldn't be worried about how big the system is. I couldn't care less of the size, shape or color of it. If it plays games, movies and music, its fine the way it is.
I'm sure one of the main reasons was to cut console manufacturing costs.



Yeah that's true. But they could've made it look a bit cooler in terms of shape. It just looks like they dropped an anvil on a normal ps3 and thought YES, THAT'S THE PS3 SLIM RIGHT THERE, DO THAT TO THE REST!

I'm sure one of the main reasons was to cut console manufacturing costs.

that's exactly the reason... and all that does is benefit you and me because, it's price much lower... how is this useless? this is now on par to compete with the xbox... i'd love to see the numbers from here on out on who sells the most consoles... and it's not like there was a big gap between the two before anyways... only a few million...

but, offering a system at the same price with all the bells and whistles included (where you have to buy them separately with the xbox) and throw in the fact that it is actually a very reasonably priced blu-ray player as well, just tells you what system is the logical choice...


What's the logical choice? The one that has more games for it? I bet most PS3's were bought as Blu-Ray players, but if you're sensible You'd just pay around 60 for a Blu-Ray Drive, fit it into your PC and then bam, a Blu-Ray player.

Sony spent way too long making it affordable when the 360 has been making an affordable console for a while. Heck the basic 360 is cheaper than a Wii now.

YES I don't play Xbox 360 anymore.

i'm sorry but, the PS3 has more games... i'm not talking total numbers, i'm talking about more quality titles... and there used to be this gap in multi-plat titles where they looked better on the xbox but, that's just not true anymore...

the blu-ray player is a nice incentive to getting a PS3 because you get a gaming system with blue-ray capabilities... if you have an HDTV, you'll want to get a blu-ray player to watch your movies in high-def... and more and more people are getting HDTV's because of their own price drop... might as well purchase an entertainment system to go with it instead of spending $200 on a stand-alone player...

yea the games part i mentioned is my own opinion... when it comes to games, your own opinion is what matters... i just think the exclusives lineup looks killer this fall and winter for the PS3...

Oh, good one. The "you're on the internet so you must have no life" insult isn't moronic or unoriginal at all. You must, without a doubt, be a very important member of society, not at all a waste of the already barely valuable gift of life.

As is the case for everyone who takes issue with people who make them sad on the internet, you are one of two kinds of people:

You are exactly what you claim I am, and that is a lonely, pathetic basement dweller. You life is spent eating eight pounds of junk food per day, masturbating to anything you find online that's even remotely feminine, and wishing you had good looks and social skills. You continue to live with your mother until she dies of a combination of lung cancer and liver failure brought on by the chain-smoking and heavy drinking she used to cope with what a failure you are. Your mother mercifully dead and free of the living embodiment of failure she regretfully thrust from her loins, the bills start to pile up and you, unemployed and unable to pay these bills (of course), lose the house and everything in it. Somehow even more of a failure than you already were, you wander from place to place eating out of dumpsters and sleeping in your own filth until you finally die of AIDS, which you contracted from a diseased whore you scrounged up enough money to pay for, so you could finally lose your virginity while at the same time pretending that your mother was back in your life.

Or:

You are the type who was an athlete in high school, who was genetically doomed to be an idiot but managed to finish school and even get a college scholarship because you were so good at a worthless children's game. You went off to college with a suitcase full of polo shirts and condoms, the polo shirts, because you're a douche, and the condoms to prevent you from impregnating the dim-witted young college girls whom you could never touch without the aid of Rohypnol, a drug you refer to as "roofies" because you can neither spell or pronounce Rohypnol. You scrape by with borderline D's for the next four years, and leave the campus to go out into the real world where your realize you're not intelligent or talented enough to do anything of value with your life. Misery and minimum wage ensues for thirty years, then you blow your brains out, and your corpse, alone and forgotten, is not discovered until the smell of rotting flesh seeps under your door and your bodily fluids finally soak through the floor of your studio apartment and into the room below you. Your body is cremated, the ashes scraped into a garbage bin because there was no one in your life who valued you enough to pay for a casket, funeral, or burial plot.

You're undoubtedly one of the two, otherwise you would have better things to do than complain about the theme of a forum that doesn't care about anything you have to say.

This is not a fabnboyish comment (at least I don't mean it to be) but I bought the PS3 because PS1 & 2 is what I'd had in the past and I just like to stick with what I know, like the controller, but I thought it was a decent deal with having BluRay and being able to use the internet just like a PC.
I still think my purchase was a good deal and if I didn't have the one I own now I would naturally buy the slim version. It's what's inside that appeals to me not the 'box'.

Fair comment. I feel the same to be honest. I just thought they'd try and make it look a little nicer.

I'm holding off on the slim for a little while, just in case there are any 360-like faults on release. That's probably unlikely, but i like making excuses for not being able to pay $494 for anything atm. Not GFC related. I'm just stingy.
