TheSixthAxis: The fuse has been replaced on our time-travelling microwave and therefore Raen and I can travel to another timeline once again. This week, we asked the question: 'What If the Slim PS3 was the launch PS3?' You know the drill by now; the coat hanger was bent into shape, the tin foil was flapped with un-matched expertise by Raen; and I programmed the required 10 minute defrost into the cooking tool. Bing!
We found ourselves back in a completely fictional 2005 at the E3 Expo just as Sony took to the stage. With an atmosphere of un-rivalled anticipation, they said 'Welcome to the Playstation 3'. The product was revealed and the room clapped and cheered. But, not having any experience of the 'fat' PS3 in this dimension, the reaction was probably the same. But this time around, Sony had decided to skip the initial period and went straight to their Slim idea for the launch. This gave them the impressive 125GB HDD to boast about as well as the quietness, the tidiness and of course the Blu-Ray. But, like I said, the impact of the quietness and tidiness was probably lost due to the fact that they had nothing to reference it to.
