Cnet: Sony shrinks down new PS3 -- except for the price

Sony still hasn't confirmed when we'll see a PlayStation 4 -- bet on late 2013 as the earliest. In the meantime, though, the venerable PlayStation 3 has gotten a face-lift. Cnet have dubbed it the "Super Slim PlayStation 3," since this third iteration of the console is the thinnest and smallest yet. It's logical to assume that this will probably be the last PlayStation 3 design change before its successor, so it allows us to take a look at the console as a whole to see how far it really has come.

A price cut is coming. They have to. It will probably be in mid november. They just want to reap the rewards of those who want to upgrade right away.

Im waiting because my sons are tired of paying for xbl so we traded their 360 in. They dont like the new one so i gotta try to get them a slim like mine.

(Conspiracy theory) btw... we think ms are banning xbl accounts to make people open new ones so it looks like more new ppl are joining. They had a few accounts banned for no reason. They dont mod and dont hack... so why else would they get banned? They arent those winey lil shitheads either that we all usually complain about.

That seems to always be the case "they dont mod or anything" weird.

Most store i've seen locally made a cut of their own anyway

Why the fuck people disagree from the truth?!

Baka-akaB4161d ago (Edited 4161d ago )

because some probably feel i'm making an excuse and agree with Sony not cutting prices .

i dont . Just saying that i've never seen the ultra slim being sold at the price of the older versions .

Here it was 555 US dollars for a 320gb console + a game pack (or one of those trilogy discs) . And those were the only models available for the last 4 months btw (no single 160 gb or 320gb , except the limited silver and red editions)

Now the the ultra slim PS3 is sold at 478 US dollars WITH a 500gb drive instead .

Square Enix Terminates 10,000 FFXIV Accounts Due to RMT

ESTNN writes: "On the eve of FFXIV's highly-anticipated Final Fantasy 15 collaboration event, the developers issued a statement on the game's official forum about the latest wave of player bans."

RMT ruins the economy for people who aren’t paying for in game money. Prices sky rocket for items. They really need to come up with a system that prevents in game money/item sales and still be able to trade items. I’m sure it can be done but the cost to do it is the issue.

One thing I do to combat this is not play.

Will There Ever Be A New Rayman Game?

Ubisoft barely have a leg to stand on lately, so do they need to crack open the vaults and return platforming royalty to glory for some goodwill?

We need Rayman 4, they could make a great platformer game if they wanted. With the open hub levels and the like.

Better than relying on Rabbids and Assassins Creed all the time

Profchaos2d ago

Yeah agree id love a Rayman 2 style 3d platform game over another 2d platformer I know people loved legends but it never gelled with me same as Rayman 1 back in the day on PS it just felt like a average platformer with sonic and Mario offering something better on what was then last gen hardware

Terry_B2d ago

Yes..but I am sure it won't be the Rayman game fans want. Not from the company that is Ubisoft today.

mastershredder2d ago (Edited 2d ago )

Ancel is retired from games. His hoodlum/rabbid team are doing their own thing. It would not be the same if Ubisoft did.

Profchaos2d ago

Probably far more profitable to make low effort Rabbids games aimed at kids over a next Rayman

Chocoburger2d ago

Experience points, skill trees to fill up, level gating, endless menial tasks and side quests, constantly scrounging for resources. Always having to upgrade your gear. A.KA. "The Ubisoft effect".

No thanks, don't ruin Rayman's legacy.

Profchaos2d ago

Sure there will be it'll launch right alongside the next splinter cell
