Associated Content: "So is the new Playstation 3 model worth buying for prospective buyers?"
Because it only does EVERYTHING.
just having the name "Sony" on it thats more than enough for me because in Sony i trust because i know Sony = quality
I wonder how many of you actually bought 1,im pretty sure most users here have the PS3 FAT... and i still think the 60gig is the best!
And the slim :)
daaaammmm you got both, im tempted to get the slim but i know the 60gig has all the bells and whistles...
I bought the slim after my 80GB with backward compatability received a YLOD late July. While I agree the 60 and 80 GBs are better, I like the slim more due to its design and the fact it's mostly whisper silent and doesn't heat up my room like a low-end heater (my 80GB was loud and HOT, even though I have a big, open-back shelf dedicated to the system alone and constantly kept it dust free). I miss the 2 extra USB, media card readers and ability to play my PS2 games, though. Still, a great price and value that I hope everyone will appreciate.
I bought one. I already had my 60GB and and 80 and still picked up a Slim. Definitely worth. Sony makes consoles tough.
BC 80 gig (just re-bought) and 120 gig slim! and i like the slim better, i think it looks better(in person, not just pics) and its a whole lot quieter(can barely tell its even on most of the time)
Even though its missing alot of features that my 60gb has. At least it runs quieter (my 60gb was loud!). When I got my slim, I cleaned & shined up the ol 60gb, boxed it up, and put it in my closet. Maybe if I ever get an extra lcd for my bedroom I'll hook it up in there.
I already have a 60 GB PS3, and I have to say it's the best investment I had when I payed $600. The slim owners are getting an incredible deal with a 120 GB and only $299. If it weren't for school I would had gotten a PS3 slim for my living room because it is worth soo much for so little
was gonna sell my 60gb to get the cash for it, but noone on craigslist would buy it.
Gabe why are you always the first poster with the same line? lol Anyways I saw the "it only does everything" commercial today during the Broncos game, it was really funny and good marketing! It was one where it shows some fat gamer nerd (thanks Sony for that btw I workout almost as much as I play games lol) but the kid keeps asking about the "299 price" and their is all the banners and signs saying "299" while some sony rep is denying the price. lol it was funny and a good way to make it OBVIOUS it's 299. Thank you Sony, the first time I saw your commercial and it was with a crying baby at the end all I could say was "what in the FUC* was that!?"
Sony just convince me dropping the price a little more this xmas... come on a little more. ----------------------------- @ morganfell 1.6 - I bought one. I already had my 60GB and and 80 and still picked up a Slim. Yeah morganfell this is proof that many Fanatic Sony wh0r3s like you bought a PS3 Slim and also keep or trade the old one. I wonder how many of those 500,000 are from gamers like you that trade a Fat PS3 for a New PS3 Slim? Remember those sales dont count like new Sony Defense Force Gamers on your Private Video Game UnReal ARMY.
I bought a slim two days ago as an early birthday present.. btw its september 28th.. But I have my slim networked with my 60 gig.. All of my extra content gets saved to my slim. Movies, music, games from the psn store and so on. I primarily use my 60 gig for my games because it has nearly 3 years worth of gaming saved to the hard drive... Is there any way to copy my save game and trophy data onto my slim? If so I will store my 60gig, I dare not think of losing it... Its nice to know that so many phat owners are buying slims... I'm excited about the future of the ps3.....
Well well, aren't we the one bubble jealous type... ha ha. Go back to your trailer and play wrestling on your 360.
Because it "Only does everything" and is the greatest console this gen in terms of quality and games.
real gamers buy all consoles including wii
Because the slim is full of win and does full 1080p with only the best exclusives, and does not flop like the failbox
The only thing is can't do is Red Ring.
No but it does YLOD.
yah it is true it dose do everything but it dosent work as a heater
it doesn't burn houses either
yeh trust me no one will want it to red ring, unless they have become so attached to xboxes that's all they expect a console to do (just joking)
I got your reason to buy a PS3 slim right here http://www.jp.playstation.c... just look at that beauty...
stealthy and understated it really is rather slim and cool.
I can't think of one single reason WHY i should buy a ps3 slim and thats being honest.
Because it comes bundled with insanity? It makes you create multiple accounts on N4G and turns you into a mindless drone. Teh Sony we obey!
Insanity is Multiplat :P
The price has been slashed in half and it`s been re-designed. Yet, it still needs justification...hence why I won`t waste my time.
N4G = Cheerleading 4 PS3
^^^ and they will defend the PS3 with ferocity like a piss off bunch of fire ants...
It only does everything!It has the exclusives for everyone and its quality.
What a silly article. "While many consumers may be disappointed with the lack of Playstation 2 backwards compatibility, that feature may return in the future via a software firmware update." And Sony says... "It's not coming back, so let me put that on the table," Sony's John Koller said. And despite the seemingly neverending chorus of demand for the feature, Koller says it's really not as big a deal as it looks like. "It's not as big as a purchase intent driver as you may be hearing." http://www.escapistmagazine... "It is no secret that the Playstation 3 is struggling to sell on the market. The main reason for this has to do with the high price tag...Fortunately, Sony was able to close the gap quickly, going from $599.99 to $499.99, from $499.99 to $399.99 and now from $399.99 to $299.99." Ok... "In addition to playing video games, the Playstation 3 is also a multimedia device that can play Blu-Ray movies along with other mediums." The old PS3 has been able to do that all along. Now, do your job and disagree with me =)
1. It does do that, but people weren't buying them as much as they are now because it was more expensive. People forget (you give them more credit than you should). 2. If you really think that they are going to say "yes, BC is coming back, so hold off on giving us more PS2 sales", then you have something wrong with you. It's obvious that they just want to milk PS2 sales until they can't get anything else out of it before bringing it back into the PS3. If it's selling, then why kill it (though I think it's time they SHOULD phase the PS2 out so more people will adopt the PS3).
As gay as it sounds, i want it cuz it's more energy efficient. I swear, with the amount of time I game (60g launch model), it's like I got a minifridge running all the time.
well it's not just about being green. obv the less energy u use the less u'll pay on electricity bills
My obsessive gaming on my old 80GB was nothing more than a money pit, which was obvious when the utilities bill came around. The only time it was practical was during the colder fall/winter months where the (abnormal?) amount of heat coming from my PS3 kept the temperature extremely comfortable and rely less on central heating and air. Sounds like I am exaggerating, but I'm not. lol
No, wait! I thought of a reason! If you have an immense amount of pity for Sony, then maybe you should just throw them a bone. I mean, You`ve had a superior library of games, the best online service and the strongest and longest lasting games the entire generation...would it hurt to buy a ps3 out of the kindness of your heart? I think not!
No, but since the ps3 doesnt have any of these things, sonyfans have actually start to beg people to buy the ps3. hence this being the 20th article about why you should buy a ps3.
I dont want it. so quit with silly articles like this. Its like someone is paying these people to beg other people to buy ps3's.
It's not that you don't want it's that mommy won't buy it for you.
I love it! More insecure Xbox fanboys trolling! Its just too much! Its Killing them XD Dance Puppets!!! lol look at the disagrees, Puppets do what I tell them, Now do it some more!!
Looks like Flipmode snapped because not everybody likes his ps3.
No I'm laughing my ass off because xbox fanboys claim they don't troll as much. I like when I'm proven right. =D
"Looks like Flipmode snapped because not everybody likes his ps3." lol you mean just like you snap because no one likes your forza or your halo ???
lol look at all the xbots feeling threatened and butt hurt at the same time this hole day got ZERO positive news for the 360 lol
Ps3 owners are like a young mother with an ugly child. They constantly wanna hear that their ps3 is good, and not a mistake....
I'm so sorry you had to go through that... I'm sure your mother loved you.
Yes i was so obviously talking about myself... *rolls eyes*. I dont know about you, but i usually hide things that other could use against me. Besides, i dont own a ps3, and if i would, i would surely not ask anyone whether the purchase was justified, cause it obviously isnt.
So you commented in this article just to say you don't like the PS3? Ok. That's like going into a room full of people and saying "I like pie." and then walking out. :D EDIT: But hey, you do have pizza for a face so... XD
One big reason why you shouldn't: You're a betatester for Sony's new model. Never buy the first batch of new stuff. Ever. I did hear already multiple stories about Slims not reading discs anymore shortly after they were bought. Be aware.
And yet here you are in another Sony article spreading Bullsh!t because of your fanboy jealousy... I'm sorry but don't you claim to own a PS3 how is that you can come here and justify how much Sony products suck but yet you buy 1... Can you say Hypocrite!!!! how much of a Muppet can you be you and all your little Muppet clones do nothing but troll and spread your lies about the PS3 yet deny anything is wrong with the 360 or anything that M$ does that in anyone Else's eyes who is not a delusional brainwashed idiot see is totally wrong and nothing but greed and careless about there customers.
except if you suffer from xbot-itis.
are people going so mad for the slim ? .What about the original PS3, you know the one that was released to the masses telling us this is all we need, the great super console, backward compatible,card reader,etc etc etc,It's like Sony have had a re-launch and you lot are buying it. It's NOT a patch on the original model, it's got less features , looks cheap now and your all going over the top.I'm glad ive got an original and wouldn't swap it for a slim . The real truth of the matter is the PS3 launch machine was just too expensive and now theyve made a cheap version.
many people were waiting for this price drop, a very few people who already had a ps3 will get a slim, I think.
To stick 2 fingers up at the Haters(i would LOVE to use the 'C' word)on the internet!!! ;-D + THE... .____........___...____ .____||......||.......____|| ||.........___||.......____|| DOES EVERYTHING!!! ;-P (I bet the ChatBots F-IN HATE that saying!!!) ;-D
XBOTS CRY ME A RIVER http://www.youtube.com/watc... lol
because it kicks @$$ is about time i get a ps3 right you guys
got it...... well had too since my 40gb YLOD but liking it
Why did you get a disagree? Maybe someone read it as you liking how your 40g ps3 got the yellow light?
1 of my Fattys got YLOD just a few days after the Slim was released. The warranty was up so I ran out and bought a Slim and I'm keeping my other Fatty boxed up bc you know... They dont make'em like that anymore XD
was wondering as well. for those who didnt understand i meant i love my new slim not my ylod 40gb
ummmmmm how about no!!! I keep my original 20GB model that has backwards compatability with hardware emulator. Yes, I think I will.
slow news day eh? August 25th? lol this is kinda old
Hey bots you all can still be saved. Walk the path of Playstation and see why your all embarrasing yourselves.
because unlike the 360 if you buy another ps3 your old one will still work for years to come.
I would by one if they produced a model without wifi but put backwards Compatability back in until then or it is at least $199 i will wait
Well, if you like games, there's no reason to not buy a PS3 right now
