im liking the new style. just wish it had a price drop

Chitown712911472d ago (Edited 1472d ago )

Yea that wouldve been killer.....What the hell is Sony waiting on? People will be buying those things like crazy at that price

@Omar : Haha yup ! I feel ya dude.

Omar911472d ago

yea I mean they kind of dropped it there in my opinion. I just wanted them to drop the price so that my friend buys a ps3 lol. lets see what he says when he hears about this.

pixelsword1472d ago

Sony hardly ever drops something until it's way too late to be something convenient; just like other price drops, this one will probably come after christmas.

BattleAxe1472d ago

This was designed by Aliens.

zeeshan1472d ago (Edited 1472d ago )

Hmm... how do you insert the disc? Those pictures are on white background so a few details get lost in the contrast. Would love to see some sort of video or something.

Amazingly, they didn't drop the price! I was expecting to see a sub-$200 PS3 this TGS. Maybe around holidays we'll see some great bundle deals. There is indeed a "slim" chance for that :)

Edit: Found better pictures guys. Take a look...

Looks like the disk slot will slide open. Also, in those pictures, it doesn't look that small WTF?

mdkgod431472d ago

@BattleAxe i agree with you dude, sony is the only company that can do this does anyone wonder why? because they use alien tech point blank

darthv721472d ago

the white one please. No need to gift wrap it, I will play it here.

I will say this though. To the collectors out there that like to buy up all the variants, sony has made it really hard to keep up with all the systems they release.

I agree the new style is very sleek and nice in design. Shame no price drop though. But hey at least they added more HD space.

kneon1472d ago

But it also appears that you can't upgrade the hard drive anymore. The wording of the announcement sort of implied this and now looking at the photos I don't see any access panel for the drive.

IRetrouk1472d ago (Edited 1472d ago )

They say you can use any 2.5" sata hardrive in the 12 gig one, but that you have to buy some sort of adaptor or you could buy the dedicated 250 gig drive Sony is bringing out, I'm gonna get a white 500 gig one for my bedroom

kneon1472d ago

That's good to hear, they didn't make it clear that you could still upgrade the HDD and the fact that they are selling a separate HDD for the first time got me skeptical.

WeskerChildReborned1472d ago

Same, something where most people will be able to afford it.

BrunoM1472d ago

Damn I'm loving the look .. One thing I think all of us can agree be Xbox or Nintendo fans Sony does put out some sexy looking hardware ...

I like it .. If my ps3 ever dies (b4 a ps4 is given a date) I will for sure be picking one of these up

BrunoM1472d ago

Lol I was wrong about us agreeing that Sony makes some sexy looking hardware (ps3s tvs bluerays etc) atlest from the disagrees looks that way ...

Well in any case I like the look of the new disine ..

And kool ps plus coming to vita on November

SAE1472d ago

Maybe you got disagrees because they didnt like how you write ..

Or you didnt put a dot in the end of your talk ;)

linkratos1472d ago

I disagree about their home consoles (other than this model), but the Vita looks amazing.

Although I did not disagree with your comment, just to be clear.

BrunoM1472d ago

I have no problem with people disagree with what I said it would be nice tho if people would comment and make their point so it would be a discussion ..

But then again I been on n4g for many year don't Coment at all and don't know why I would be expecting actual debate/talk ...

Any who in my opinion looks good ..

Oo ya these twiter user on jun6 had already tweeted te new ps3 look @PsVGeneration

So now that there are PICTURES of a slim and small ps3, I wonder if fanboys would still take a dump on me for saying that slim was disappointing because of how freaking wide it was, like they did 3 days ago.

Kurt Russell1472d ago

I just wish they made a stackable version... I have the slim and because it has a curved top everything slides right off it! :D - Hardly a real problem I know, it just would have been nice.

showtimefolks1472d ago

i don't know why y'all think its time for a price drop but when both ps3 and xbox360 are still top selling consoles why would they drop the price?

500GB
a slimmer version

an instant win. I think if there is any price drop it will be at GDC for sony and E3 for MS.

Sony usually show few surprises at GDC or TGS

andibandit1472d ago

Top selling, or just selling equally bad. Nintendo already showed that there is a much bigger potential market out there.

DragonKnight1472d ago

@andibandit: Nintendo showed that people will follow celebrity endorsements and fads. Look at the state of the Wii's 3rd party support and core offerings. Look at the fact that the casual market is very fickle and the Wii fad will likely not be reproduced for a very long time. Casual gamers won't see the need to upgrade. Why would they if they have a console that still works and plays the games they already own? They'll simply migrate to facebook games and more cellphone games. Nintendo knows that the reliable money comes from the core market.

Muffins12231472d ago

omg i just sold my old ps3,perfect timing :D

Bloodraid1472d ago

Eh, I'm not really digging it, personally.

I loved the design of the original PS3, and thought the slim looked alright (though I still prefer the fat). This design just looks terrible.

Hopefully the PS4 doesn't follow Sony's recent trend of making their consoles look uglier.

auen11472d ago

what they might do instead is drop the price on the current ps3 slim. after that inventory has cleared, they'll probably drop the price on this one.

AO1JMM1472d ago (Edited 1472d ago )

Prices are not low enough for me to justify upgrading to this from my currently broken (rlod)40gb fat ps3

MobyRoyale1472d ago

I'm not sure if that's technically upgrading. That sounds more like replacing.

Don't misconstrue what I am saying though. I am not arguing your decision to do without a PS3. I am simply pointing it out my friend.

SilentNegotiator1472d ago

It's both replacing and upgrading, Mr. Semantics.

ExCest1472d ago

@^ It's uplacing! (or regrading, or placegrading, or gradeplacing. pick your poison)

KwietStorm1472d ago

If you haven't upgraded from a 40 gig by now, I don't think anything would have convinced you.

AO1JMM1472d ago

Keyword: broken, otherwise you are right I wouldnt buy another PS3 as it played blurays and games fine before RLOD struck.

DragonKnight1472d ago

Ummm. YLOD? RLOD implies that it still works. You know, red light means it's in standby.

LOL_WUT1472d ago

I don't think he ever had one! Ha

Xof1472d ago (Edited 1472d ago )

Nice! When's it coming? Is it the speculated flash-memory thing, or will it take a 500GB 2.5" SATA drive like the older models? North American release when?

This isn't idle curiosity: my PS3 went all YLOD-happy on me a couple of weeks ago and I've been -waiting- for news of this new model.

NeotheGamer1472d ago

and the point of this is?

DwightOwen1472d ago

To distract you from the fact that there are STILL no significant new games coming to Vita and that the PS4 is NOT coming for the 2nd straight year.

MasterCornholio1472d ago (Edited 1472d ago )

Oh wow so Assasins Creed Liberation isn't a significant new game. I would have mentioned Little Big Planet Vita but since it's out I guess it doesn't count. And Soul Sacrifice doesn't count either because it's only comming out in Japan.

Anyways doesnt seem like a more logical reason that Sony is releasing this new model to combat the Wii U?

XperiaRay

NeotheGamer1472d ago

Maybe i could see a point if they lowered the price to around 199$ but as is, no one except morons will say "Hey, look at this! a new PS3 model..lets get this over the Wii U even though its the same price and 6 years older"

Xenomorph1472d ago

Killzone vita, the last of us, disagree

ExCest1472d ago

I think Persona 4 is significant, even for a remake.

sikbeta1472d ago

@NeotheGamer

Duh, to selling at higher price? :/

They have completely lost it, 6 years after original release and the best idea they had was to actually Increase the price of the new model, as far as I can rememeber the last PS2 redesign was cheaper and not the other way around...

CBaoth1472d ago

Sony will follow what MS has done the past two years. At Xmas, they'll put it on sale for $50 less. It's a strategy that's worked wonders for MS the past 2 Xmas, keep the price the same, but do a temporary price drop at the holidays. Remember last year's $99 Kinect? Sony did it on a smaller scale last year; 250gb PS3 with 2 games for $249 and we sold all 25 units in 2hrs.

DaThreats1472d ago

Looks like the PS2 slim
