Take a look at the first photos of the just-confirmed new PlayStation 3 model.
im liking the new style. just wish it had a price drop
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.
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.
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.
This was designed by Aliens.
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... http://www.engadget.com/201... Looks like the disk slot will slide open. Also, in those pictures, it doesn't look that small WTF?
@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
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.
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.
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
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.
Same, something where most people will be able to afford it.
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
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
Maybe you got disagrees because they didnt like how you write .. Or you didnt put a dot in the end of your talk ;)
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.
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.
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.
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
Top selling, or just selling equally bad. Nintendo already showed that there is a much bigger potential market out there.
@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.
omg i just sold my old ps3,perfect timing :D
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.
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.
Prices are not low enough for me to justify upgrading to this from my currently broken (rlod)40gb fat ps3
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.
It's both replacing and upgrading, Mr. Semantics.
@^ It's uplacing! (or regrading, or placegrading, or gradeplacing. pick your poison)
If you haven't upgraded from a 40 gig by now, I don't think anything would have convinced you.
Keyword: broken, otherwise you are right I wouldnt buy another PS3 as it played blurays and games fine before RLOD struck.
Ummm. YLOD? RLOD implies that it still works. You know, red light means it's in standby.
