Depends of some Ebay jerk jumps in line and buys 50 of them to try and flip on Ebay.....

The same people that make these sales so limited now a days. (if you are going to go to that effort to cheat people out of money, why not just shell out to get a business license and buy things in bulk?)

I've thought about picking up another slim just because I hate the Ultra slim that much...
Seraphim  +   990d ago
yeah because of the Ultra Slim I've thought about finally retiring my 60GB w/ a Slim. that ultra slim is just awful.

I think it's mainly a design choice. A lot of people are quite happy with the new super slim design. I actually prefer the slim myself.

The good thing about the super/ultra slim is the small size.

The bad thing about it is the cheap look.
Seraphim  +   989d ago
there's nothing bad about it. I just don't personally care for it. Especially but not limited to the sliding plastic top... Mind you I still have a 60GB [160GB] Dinosaur that I finally capped the hard drive space on... And honestly I've never been all that thrilled w/ the 2nd gen, especially when compared the OR. The 60GB might be a monster but it's a beautiful machine....

Ya pick one of these up if your looking to buy a new ps3. I recently picked up a super slim. And it seems to run good, and pretty quiet but it feels cheap. It feels very un Sony like. I just have this bad feeling about the disc cover, like a year from now ill have to tape it shut just to get it to work. Who knows maybe it will last.

DivineAssault  +   990d ago
i want the red super slim w the red vita to match... smh, i also want the money to just waste on re buying stuff i have.. Crimson red is such a sexy color on those PS machines

I think people are starting to realize that the current 2nd gen ps3 is quickly becoming a hot item.

1 It's known to be more stable.
2 It run's really quite.
3 It run's really cool.
4 It has a really neat slot loader.
5 It's currently cheaper than the super slim.

Heck if I had money to throw around, I'd buy one, stuff a TB HDD in one and transfer to it.
