Now that the new ps3's are being shipped, there should hopefully be enough stock in shops to not get sold out. Just imagine what the sales are gonna be like
do you think this is the reason the ps3 is out of stock it doenst look fake will see in a couple of weeks
Shipping Units, and New Hardware for NA: http://n4g.com/news/523280/... It only does 40nm!
I don't know why but i always kinda disliked the new slogan. Implies that the only thing the PS3 does is having a 40nm GPU... (which sounds quite ridiculous.) Edit: Also @the article. Why on earth would Sony announce the new PS3 at E3? It's just a minor redesign to increase their profit. They didn't announce every revision of the 80Gb @E3 now did they? It's the same SKU after all.
Can you imagine all those people without any Sony. Tha'ts enough talk, I'm off to get me some Sony.
Can you imagine all the people without Fanboy? You couldnt.
Now Sony, Make Sure You Have Enough Supply and start making PS3s 24hs non-stop, cos Demand will be HUGE...
The demand will increase massively for PS3 after E3.
It will likely look the same as the last few months... I dont see it being that much different. I could be wrong of course
funny how morons in this site believed the " PS3 Slim sold out, limited at U.S. retail " Bullshit! ""OH THE WHOLE WORLD IS BUYING THE PS3"" OH LONG LIVE TO OUR GOD PS3!! LONG LIVE!! LOL X100 it was just the OH MY GOD HIGH DEMAND TRICK and you all just fall for it. You loyalists Gamers? nah just brainwashed idiots!
Ill have one please.
I've never understood the desire to replace a functioning system with a "slim model".
That would be the price.
i dont understand it either.... but i really want one
I'll have one too please. Waiting for Amazon.com to get a new shipment :)
Soon they will be able to drop the cooling system altigether - thats when costs and size will really drop. Or have they already done that in the Slim? Also, Blu-ray should be close to DVD prices by now, I wonder?
The current slim models still have fans in them, can't see the new one being any different. I can't see the PS3 being passively cooled for a while yet.
I have a new slim coming tomorrow. Hopefully it has the 40nm chip in it.
Jeah gonna pick one up this thing wil be quiet as shit
*throw's pokeball at it*
Do they ever? I mean, I don't think most consumers care about or know about minor hardware revisions under the hood.
They'd probably mention it along side a possible price cut. Just my guess.
I got one today 2 hours ago.
249.99 Please. :)
yes that will solve the problem with the shortages... /s
Shortages due to them wanting to clear out all the non-profitable stock. Supply will increase.
the shortages could have been due to sony producing a cheaper model.
i hope it isnt mostly all about hardware this year...like last year you know
if they want to start making profit from it why would they announce anything?
I'm still running a 60GB launch model, I can't imagine how quiet this one will be. Has anyone else PS3's taken the role of home cinema, DVD player, music system and game system? I was considering buying a new DVD player as well.
yup all of the above for me also, except music system. And i'm running the 40gb model still :)
The store near me just got some systems in after weeks of not having them. Chances are I got the 40nm one.
where did you get it?
It was from Gamestop. East Coast. Also it IS one with the chip, cause the model number has CECH 2101 on it. :D
Great news. I have a fat 40gb model. it has been 3 years since I bought it. allow me to say its a very reliable hardware.
Does anyone on this site even know what 40nm means? Probably not
I think you'll find I do, so watch it with your presumptions.
.................. . Yes, please. . ...................
New 40nm PS3 slims spotted in the wild? Oh Shi- Someone chuck a pokeball at it!
Wild 40nm PS3 used Teleport.
Hoping to save some cash for a slim soon. I really wanna replace the fat one and put it up.
Guys its runs so much quieter than my old 60gb (ylod last week getting repaired).I been playing RED DEAD for 5 hours straight no fans noise or anything its super quite. Idk if the orginal slims where this quite.
Now that's what I called SMALL PS3 SLIM. I know that my store that I worked in WE BEEN OUT OF STOCKED SINCE JANUARY. Hopefully we get our shipments in really soon. Cause the phones keep asking for ANY MORE PS3'S? Just getting sick of telling them no we don't have any. Just glad that they keep making them better and smaller.
