I like the top loading because if my system happens to get the YLOD I will be able to get my game out. I don't have to wait to get my game out of the system (Not that I have to wait long now,but still).

What I am worried about is, will the game get easily scratched due to the system being moved, similar to what happens to the 360 disc?

The price is not to much, in a way its cheaper without the price drop. You get more space and for 20 dollars more you get 2 games or 70 dollars worth of extra stuff (depends on how you see it).

If the disc needs to be clicked into place like in the PS2 slim, I doubt you'll need to worry about scratched discs. Blu Ray is very durable anyway.

This might be the Sony's answer to steal Nintendo Wii U's thunder. IF you're looking for great library of exclusive games, you can't go wrong with the slimmer $250 PS3.

IF you're looking for a new fresh gaming experience, you may opt for the $300 Wii U. Fortunately, the PS3 will be able to mimic what the Wii U can do via new firmwares, but you may need to add $250 PS Vita in your purchase list too (especilly for new PS3 gamers.)

For the 2 crappy games that will use the PS3 + PS Vita control setup. Such a groundbreaking technology.

it needs wireless N! wtf sony? switching to this has no benefit over the current models. the 360 slim got it right with wireless N and a MUCH quieter system. but this? i dont see it, the current model is quiet, has slot loading, and the same wireless your not getting quicker downloads, your not getting anthing with the super slim really. who would buy this over the wii u at the same price? -__-

Who is it actually for?

Anybody who wants a Ps3.. It's all about reducing the costs of manufacturing, not about building something to compete with WiiU.

DarkHeroZX2221d ago

true but this will actually cause all other existing models to go way down in price as well. So this may be the boost Sony needed.

Only problem I see is pricing, which will be fixed soon enough with the holiday season.

Oh my god so many doom and gllom articles when anything sony appears it is crazy this like the 4th negative thing I have read about the super slim.

Price is fine for a great looking console which is 500gb and in europe the 12gb upgradable flash console for a tiny bit cheaper is also reasonable.

A part from maybe the price the super slim looks fantastic.

Oh em gee i know right? Why is sony always getting picked on... like fur realz IM CEREAL

Why not nintendo? No one ever picks on nintendo!

TheLyonKing2221d ago

why are you even mentioning nintendo in a Sony Article, My point am trying to make is sony have a great product that's priced perfectly for each model one which undercuts the wii U price.

Don't see why you had to comment on mine just to winge that the nintendo gets picked on cause like I have said before this is a SONY article.

Just incase you didnt see what I wrote S.O.N.Y article there is no need to bring N.I.N.T.E.N.D.O in it.

In the words of Axel got it memorized?

Seems people are warming up for the next-gen console war, that's all.
