12GB PlayStation 3 Slim Emerges for $200, Half the Price of a PS4

Maximum PC: If you have the money and patience to wait until this holiday shopping season, you can score Sony's upcoming PlayStation 4 (PS4) console and rock some next-generation gaming into 2014 and beyond. Alternately, you could spend half as much on Sony's new flash-based 12GB PlayStation 3 (PS3) Slim system. Sony isn't making a big fuss over its low(er) cost console option, though it's not difficult to find. (PS3, Sony)

Hm, getting a 1 TB 2.5 hard drive is not very expensive, so that is most likely what i'll do because my 320 GB is almost up.

Good for hobbyists or people just getting into gaming.

Good thing the hard drive is removeable :D

You don't need to remove anything in the 12GB version. The HDD bay is empty so it's just a simple matter of buying a HDD and slotting it into the empty bay.

I just think it's weak that if you add an HDD, the 12GB of flash mem is disabled and just goes to waste. They should have figured a way to at least keep the OS on the flash... keeping non-game apps like Netflix and YouTube on the flash would have been nice as well.

Having the hard drive easily upgradable makes this a good purchase for most anyone. Going straight to a 1TB doesn't leave you with a wasted HDD now. Such a better option than 360's 4GB worthless edition.

But still I hope they can get this to $149 soon for the sake of continued sales. I mean I just bought the 500GB PS3 Slim Assassin's Creed 3 bundle for $230 through Newegg's Ebay sale. Not much more money for a whole lot better package.

Imo $149.99 is way better price point...

Well, half the price but not the power.
So that makes the PS4 more attainable.

I'll just have to hope my Nyko media hub slim fits on the super slim.

people are ALWAYS going to have something to bitch about when sony does anything. bu bu but the 12gb is disabled when you put in a hardrive. bu bu but 149.99 would be a better price point. bu bu...shut up already.
kreate  +   678d ago
When the price is dropped to $149, bu bu but $99 is better :)

Why the "half the price of the ps4" thing. I can do math. I passed the 5th grade.
