yes. i would like a smaller and more sleeker ps3 though i realize itll be a bit tough to do if they use movable hdd

or how about a vita+ps3 160GB bundle for $400?

i think its better than cutting the price of the vita alone this early if they are intending to do it.
thats way they sell the vita as if it was price slashed and the move one ps3 with it.

they would lose money with a bundle like that.

The PS3 will follow the PS2 progression.

PS3 will hit that $200 or £129 sweet spot soon.

He told Official PlayStation Magazine UK that “If you look back at the history on PS1, PS2 the vast majority of the business that we did on both those platforms was done at the sub £129 price points. Now we’ve only got to £199 in the UK a couple of month back so you can see there’s still a lot of PS3’s potentially to be sold.”


There is a big possibility that a slimmer smaller PS3 model will support their campaign for the younger market.

if they made a top loader. Slim and sleek like the top loading ps2.

not just the HDD but the blu-ray drive too. When you open up a PS3 80% of the space is taken only by those 2.

Cybermeerkat2394d ago (Edited 2394d ago )

The built in power supply and the Blu-ray drive take's up all the space. HDD take's hardly no space its a 2.5 HDD so it's small probably the smallist thing in the ps3. Trust me i know, I've opened up a number of fat ps3's and Slim ps3's

WTTTTFF imagine without those two it would be a fuckin very powerful machine.

If they're smart, they will.

There is no need for a new console.

Oldman1002394d ago

They should redesign it to make it look like a smaller version of the original ps3(piano black with chrome, coloured/twistable logo, touch sensitive buttons, etc). The current ps3 slim looks way too cheap.

I wouldn't mind since my current PS3 is just a little over 4 years old
