"I'm sexy and I know it.."
Definitely looks nicer than the old slim
I strongly disagree with it looking better than the old slim. I have the 'old' slim and i'd much rather have the front loading drive and 'non' corregated top. I think this new model, in comparison to my 'old' slim, looks cheap. That drive lid is paper thin and this new model doesn't even have an wireless network led indicator? What's up with that? I'm sure it'll work great and make Sony some big profits because of it's cheaper construction but nicer than the 'old' slim it is not.
it reminds me of an old console style record player. You slide the top to the side and there is the turntable (yeah I know, i'm old). As to the style, i really like it. I have the 80gb fat and have been toying with the idea of getting another in the slim design. Now this one is making me consider it more and more but now the tough part of, do I get an existing slim or this one. I sure would like more information on if these new units are user changeable on the hdd or if these are now closed to a specific size. It really wouldnt matter in my decision, I would just like to know.
Looks nicer, but id rather they decreased the overall footprint than thickness.
@mewhy32 I completely agree. The new model looks cheap. No thanks.
that's what people said about the first slim when compared to the original. not saying that it will change your mind but it shouldnt matter what it looks like so long as it plays the games that you enjoy. Genesis went through 5 official changes from the model 1 to the model 2 to the model 3 and the cdx and even the nomad. They all still played the same games. If you are worried about the look then that is really petty.
Indeed. Can't say if it's the piano black like finish, but this is the classiest design for any console I've seen to date. It reminds me the most some of the well designed hi-end speaker manufacturers. It's like something coming from a Bang & Olufsen or Bose catalog!
I still think the most important part is the guts not the looks, and since old Fat PS3 had most guts, its the best forever! ;)
"no shoes no shirt and I still get service watch!"
What's next? The super-duper slim? -__-
it goes old school and becomes like the sony disc-man portable. It could happen. Or better yet. Like they did with the PSOne being small enough to attach a screen to it. I just got one for $30 and that thing is sweet (even if its just a PS1).
you're probably to young to remember but Sony has done the with every one of their home consoles. Also I'm alot more interested in the price point of the 12gb model that EU is getting. I'm thinking that's coming in at about $199.99. The smaller you can make something the more efficient it performs while consuming less power. You are performing a discredit to Irish people when you spout things like that.
Looks like garbage can from 90s...Seriously, this looks good to you guys? Wow...
They should have canned the george foreman grill look with the first slim, now the second slim looks even more like a grill. If you want to make a grill Sony, just friggin make one. Leave your console design to someone who is not hungry all the time.
It doesn't matter it was the best looking piece of hardware ever because of the four letter word on it. We get it Shaman, you hate anything Sony. But there must be something drawing you back again and again to SONY articles.
So find those posts of me "hating on Sony". I liked fatty and FF13 slim is to me finest looking console this gen, but this, outside of render images, looks like cheap garbage can from 90s. The whole internet is disgusted except couple of hardcore fanboys who can't deal with the fact that console released 6 years ago got ugly redesign.
Someone needs to post a pic of the disc slot opened
Yes I want to see it too. do anyone have an idea who it works.
go to IGN, they have an unboxing
Saw it and it looks so damn cheap. Glossy plastic is just ugh. The cover for the disc is ugh! Guys do check the IGN video unboxing. The ONLY thing I like is the smaller foot print.
seems very small. i'm looking forward to see it for real. Definitely better looking than the slim one.
Doesn't look very small in these pics. http://www.engadget.com/pho...
if u compare it to the vita next to it it is small. i'd prefer them to make it even smaller by putting the electric box out like PStwo. The only thing that is annoying is that it looks pretty "cheap" made of plastic.
"Super HD" is an accurate representation of said article and pictures 5/5.
I like it but it is a bit depressing. I was hoping to see next-gen consoles soon. I love my current consoles and all but... As someone who's had it since launch, it feels like its been forever. I'm ready to see a new console. I was thinking PS4 and Xbox 720 were getting close to becoming a reality, but then I see remodels like this? That says to me they're not planning to do anything about a PS4 for a while yet, not if they're still putting out new console models. Maybe at the end of next year we'll hear some news about new consoles.
The original PlayStation was remodeled one year before the ps2 came out. Same scenario here. Expect next gen systems holiday 2013, no later than early 2014. They won't stop selling ps3s after the new one comes out. Sales will pick up in 3rd world countries where it becomes more affordable.
Some of us are already on next-gen ... yup, its the PC!
With the same control system you've been using for every console generation! That sounds fun!
Its fine that you're a PC gamer and all, totally, that's cool. You get mods and all that fun stuff, great stuff yeah... but I wonder if you realize just how unnecessarily jerkish this comment makes you sound given the context. It isn't like I didn't specifically say console generation. Infact, here is the quote. "I was hoping to see next-gen consoles soon." Next-gen. Consoles. I made a point to express that I was looking forward to the new console generation, not just next-generation in general sense. A point I tried to express clearly to avoid having a bunch of PC-Elitist come in and start their preaching about how they already have 'next-gen.' Apparently that defense was flawed. I put way too much faith into common sense and decency. Naive, I know.
Your not wrong for wanting next gen. I just think with games like Halo 4, The Last of Us, Beyond 2 Souls, Metal Gear Ground Zero, GTA, God of War Ascension, New Gears of War game, BF4, etc. The current system proves they still have legs to stand on. But I welcome ps4 and xbox 720 just like you maybe e3 2013! psn: cedaridge
Looks pretty slick with that gloss. Ridges are not that bad looking
i like everything EXCEPT the stupid disc trey?.. srsly?.. isn't it cheap to go the other route and stay a slot loading?.. so lame,its like android phones that are super powerful and nice and have quad core CPU's only to be stuck with capactive buttons... no on screen buttons UGH! lol
stop crying no one is telling you to buy it.
He is expressing his opinion...
I guess this means no ps4 for a long time. They're gearing up for a long haul with this machine, even though developers hate it.
No it doesn't. They can bring the PS4 in 2013 and have the PS3 sold next to it for a long time to come. They did the same with PS2, they didn't stop production and sales when the PS3 was released. Its just saving costs, being able to reduce prices. Says nothing about a new console.
Your ignorance is astounding, but your determination is admirable. On topic: It looks better than I thought it would, it's super tiny, and it comes in white! ... but all my other systems are black... To hell with it! If I get a new one- my 80GB fat still works fine, after all- it'll be white!
i might have to get one of these. hopefully somewhere like gamestop offers a promotion giving you bonus credit if you trade in one of your older consoles.
I like how most of the 360 people are commenting here and saying it ugly or its a grill
I think I'll always prefer the George Foreman Grill version of the PS3 even if I currently own the first PS3 slim. I like the slimness of this new model though! Not exactly diggin' the top of it though. It takes away and element of sleekness.
where does the HDD go
