ProductReviews: After Microsoft’s eventful E3 keynote speech, many PS3 owners are probably wondering whether or not to buy the new Xbox 360 Slim. How many of you are prepared to give the new console a run out?
HELL NO!!! A PS3 Slim has built-in Wi-fi, Blu-ray player, Blu-ray games, Internet Browser, free online, recharagable controller, Home, unlimited accounts opens the door to unlimited friends, 160 gigs, arguably the best exclusives and certainly the greatest variety in exclusives compared to the 360, IMO the best motion controller out there and its already been confirmed to be under 100 bucks with everything you need to get started included. And guess what..its only getting better with firmware updates. Sidenote- Internet Browser opens the door to free movies, tv shows, music, porn, and free PPV...if u know where to look that is :)
saw the headline and i literally burst out laughing. The slim 360 looks really nice but not at that dumb price and natal didnt really convince me if im being honest lol "wait till e3"
"wait till e3" HAHAHA "is it still dvd9- check still battery operated controllers-check slide out disc tray- check pay for live-check LACK OF EXCLUSIVES AT E3- check " ^^ exactly, how can you compare that to a machine that has bluray, free online, First party exclusives and rechargable controllers all for the SAME price?
No! No Blu Ray? same price? Are they mad?!!
"PS3 Owners: Will you buy New Xbox 360 Slim?" Whats the use of asking such a question on N4G ? The most fanboyish site on the world wide web. People on this site would kill their mom if Sony asked them too. Of course the fangirls in here are going to say no...but for some weird reason their voices dont have any impact whatsoever in the real world. The 360 will keep on selling and the Sony fanboys in here are going to keep on being angry at MS for making a console that is actually as successful as the PS3.
is it still dvd9?-check pay to play online?-check proprietary hdd?-check yet still same price as a ps3?-check and more importantly...that e3 conference done nothing but showed A LACK OF EXCLUSIVES and KINECT has put me right off
'looks at title again' ROTFLMFAO!
way too many games coming out from Sony 1st party devs to even think about buying a 360 later this year...
I need to wait and see of the reliability of the Hardware before hand mind..
like the six axis and eye toy!! wiiiiiiiiii. unlimited friends!! sony sony sony!!! porn yeaaaaahhh!! opens the doooor!! yeaaaaHHHH!! go try tbagging yerself
I already have a 360, so I won't be getting the slim... although I wish the slim was available when I bought my 360.
when i saw the amount of comments, i just knew i would be able to count all the yesses on one hand!! xbox and n4g just dont mix for some strange reason..... i wonder why that could be??? lol
Even with the side by side comparison, you can clearly see that the ps3 still have much to offer.
I have all 3 consoles, but if I didn't have a 360 the only reason in my case for not buying one would be having to pay to play online. I know that most people are going to say that xbox live is waaay better than psn, everyone is entitled to his opinion but I don't think so, sure it may have a few options here and there than ps3 is missing right now but to charge 50 bucks for a gold membership? no thank you. I play with my xbox offline because, seriously.. why would you pay to play online if you can do it for free on other console. This is in my case, because I own all 3 consoles, I would understand if you only had an xbox but if you have a ps3 it just doesn't make sense to me.
Do you actually think that with the many games coming out for the PS3 I'd have the time? lol Plus it cost the same as a PS3 and it has no blu-ray? That's a rip-off man. 0_o
I m afraid no. Sony offers all that the 360 does and even more, some free as well. Plus Blu-ray..and the most important, a shit load of 1st party AAA games... Not to mention a soon to be a fact better motion control experience...
Hell NO! I'm gonna dance like this:
H E L L to the NO! Why buy something that is trying to play catch up with my launch 60gb or any other PS3? Why buy it when it has no substance? Why? So I can buy it for it's looks? NO. I need games to back it up. I'm not going to be playing Halo for years.
ill be too busy with killzone 3 grand turismo 5 socom 4 infamous 2 and well.. i wouldn't be able to play with kinect because the floors are weak in my apartment building and it's packed with nosey old farts that would probably call the cops once they hear continuous stomping =]
ms has shown nothing since launch that i want so no this redesign doesnt make me interested no deal
Also with all the jumping about while playing Kinect on weak floors, wouldn't that cause disc scratching.
I already own an xbox
Although I like the looks and the features more than my Elite, that doesn't change the fact that I already own a functioning Xbox 360 (knocks on wood).
same here, I have all 3 consoles so there's no need, and either way my ps3 is the main console in the house. although I gotta admit, even though I'm not digging kinect nor the ps move, my inner fatty was kinda excited with the exercise game :D but there's no way I'm spending more than 70 bucks on kinect or ps move, I'd rather spend my cash on awesome games.
$300 vs a $300 console. Nope, the PS3 still packs more punch for the dollar.
LOL before i clicked the link i could imagine all the no's but they should of lowered the price as well as redesign to be honest
Yeah, the redesign really doesn't change anything until the price drops. Like how Sony dropped the price when Slim hit, I was hoping MS would drop the price. I was holding on till the end of the press conf. for them to confirm it >.< My 360 is begining to stop reading discs, and it's super annoying to try the game 10 games to get it to read. When i heard the announcement, got excited for a price drop. Guess I'mma be playing w/ my barely alive 360 for abit longer.
'Handing speeding tickets at the Indy 500'
I might have considered it if there had been a price drop (sorry but my PS3 already has wi-fi and we here in the Playstation camp have been updating to 500GB drives for pennies since launch) in addition to the redesign. 802.11n is NOT deal maker for me. Another problem I have is that Move (despite my distaste for motion controls) is beginning to look very promising. All of that being said however, the biggest hurdle keeping me from making the jump are the titles Sony has lined up starting in Q3 2010. $300 is five games and I can easily think of 20 or so titles whether they're exclusives or great multiplats that I'd love to pick up instead.
Are they kidding...at the same price point I can get a Blu Ray player???.... No thanks. I think I would rather have a real tiger then to buy Kinect and play with it's tiger.... lol do with that last sentence as you must =P
@$300.00 you can pick up 2 players if you so desired. :p
i wouldnt mind the plushy tiger from the media pack but thats it... hey i collect tigers
Fat chance. What good is a redesign with no games to play?
