Unboxing video of the PS3 Slim.
The real buttons seem odd for some reason on the PS3 after having gotten used to the heat-sensitive ones on the current PS3.
I know what you mean phat's bottons are really slick, but I'm sure the new one will feel very nice as well. Sony is awesome delivering hq hardware.
every type of stereotypical nerd is present in this video! lmao
Now I gotta get $300 to get one of these! This seems like a great deal. $299 with a 120 Gb HDD... gotta get it! Sales for the Ps3 should increase dramatically when this hits! Also, this price shows that Sony is aggressively trying to take marketshare away from MS and Nintendo! With this new model costing $50 more than the Wii and offering more tech that the Wii has, and being at about the same price as the 360... it's clear that Sony are planning to battle this holiday season! This should be good for all gamers!
They (the heat sensitive ones) cost more so, poof! Regular buttons.
The one in the donkey kong shirt reminds me of a buddy of mine. Serious wearer of gaming shirts. On topic, I want to see this thing ripped open to show the insides. Maybe ben heck will now make a portable version like he has done with several 360's. It should have fw 3.0 on it right? Strange that so many outlets are getting theirs and making posts about opening the boxes. Did they hand one out to every attendee at the show or something?
I'm not as impressed as I was with the ps2 slim, probably because we saw it such a long time ago. I wonder will it have heat problems like the ps2 slim? Guess I'm wrong. *disagrees
@darthv72 I'm not sure, but I dont think it will ship with 3.0. I'd have to look though.... The reason I'm not sure is cuz I saw it on wikipedia, so I took it with a couple pinches of salt lol
"Compare it to this giant [email protected]" That made me laugh
a 120 gb ps3 for $299? is that true?
Black Chrome ftw b!tches and buttons too b!tches
That was sexual And no power brick
If thats the case I'm defo sold - that was the only sticking point for me about the slim. Disappointed about the lack of otheros, but to be honest, the linux scene really hasn't taken to the ps3 as much as I expected.
The PS3 linux scene would of picked up more if they were given access to the GPU too. It seems they were going the right way by giving YDL access to the GPU memory too, just need the actual processer now.
I had forgotten about it but yeah it looks like they shrunk the power supply.
ist because there not het sensetive its a electrical switch between the on sign and the / reset and yout finger completes the circuit , test it ese a piece of metal to conect them and it starts
umm BUTTONS???? OH come on!! WHY?? WHY SONY??!! The touch sensitive gloss over was MUCH more better I was under the impression that those round things over the power and eject signs were just stickers...Bu BUT NOOOOOOO
they are cheaper, besides the 360 has buttons too and no one is complaining.
the reason i could actualy see why buttons is because some people have had issues with the touch buttons where it would stop working. lol at the disagree
The heat sensitive ones were so coooool though. Very futuristic.
i lold at the unboxers hair... WTFFFFFFF
Haha me too. What a douchebag haircut.
Looks like a mushroom. Hahaha.
im with you.. wtf.
They all look like geeks.
lol i know, i laugh at the person who is smiling at the camera, he is trying not to
Cool revision. But I'd rather stick with my 60gig EU BC PS3 Phat.
I'm jealous >.< But look good, not more fingertips at my PS3 :)
You know what i'm not seeing, unless its just blended in really well.. is the compartment door for upgrading the hard drive..
You know...as sexy as the fat PS3 is, I never thought of that: "Noooo fingerprints". That's a pretty good pro/con argument. It looks better than I though after seeing this video, and the guy was handling it easily. You can't carry the PS3 with one hand unless you're Lou Ferrigno.
Where are the comparison shots of the 360 and PS3's sizes? On topic: No brick = Epic Edit: Engadget has pictures of comparions of the 360 and regular PS3. :O
on video than pics.
Indeed. Its great that you can now rub your console with out worry of prints.
Man you must REALLY love your console to want to RUB it...lol. Does it squeeze one off in satisfaction as you do so?
I had my eyes on the girl at the back lol
lol, me too.
It's sad, but I said 'what girl?' after reading this and didn't see her until the second time I watched the vid. My excuse is that I'm married. Yeah, that's it. *sighs*
LOL.. I had my eyes back there too.. New PS3 Slim looks really cool.. I heard that can be heating issues... Is that true?
That video makes it look so much better than the official promo shots.
Yeh it does. I was surprised at just how much better it looks in the vid
yah def, to me in the pics it looked reallly flat and allot longer then its phaty counterpart. and another it looked like the top was really shiny like it had a pattern in the top, shiny, plain, shiny,plain and countinue. this video makes it soe much more clear
The Button thing is the Only feature that lets this down
The 360 has buttons too... that let you down?
I'm with you Dragon. I, as many will agree, love that tiny beep that accompanies the subtle action of lightly resting your finger on the surface for a split second before hearing the orchestral tune opening up. It was a nice little 'touch' to an aesthetically pleasing design.
Only problem i see from the engaget pics is the blue screw is right in the PS3 slim and i stripped the blue screw last time on my big PS3 strait away and had to get a pair of small pliers to twist it :( so im worried about getting my 320gb hard drive over
that freakn screw is locked in there hard, i striped mine also
Already got to unbox it? Wow, it is really slim. I prefer the original PS3 design because it's glossier. The slim is actually beautiful.
That is the first time I've ever watched a video unboxing, and probably the last. When I see hands undoing something, esp. male ones, it better be some breasts or ass coming out. Too weird.
It's so F'ing ugly... Still, it's not going to stop me from buying it.
F'yeah! Shaved the cost and shaved the size of the system. Prices were cut across all territories. It's time for a GT5 release date announcement to solidify the steamroll effect.
I bet we'll get the GT5 Release at TGS
i actualy like how it looks. in the pictures i thought it looked longer then the original, and was much more flat on top. but seeing this video shows me its isn't. I like the idea of no fingerprint on top. My ps3 is really scratched up cus wen i clean the fingerprints , it leaves scratch marks. I think i will buy this wen it comes out and give the old on eto my bro.
It looks much better and sleeker on real live than photos. I'm almost jealous i already own a PS3 and can't get me a slim.
HDD looks to be underneath the BD drive. Good that you'll still be able to upgrade.
i was thinking 1 of the reasons they got it that small was because it now has a extenal power brick. but i was wrong. how the hell did they get it that small.
is one of the best if not the best electronics manufacture.
wait a minute? the ps3 had heat sensors and the new slim comes with 120gb HDD? wow, didn't know that. i'm real glad that there's no longer a finger print sensitive chasis, that got annoying real fast.
i very sure the slim does has bc as on the box it reads this model of playstation 3 system is designed to play playstation 3 software and has limted backwards compatibilty http://www.engadget.com/pho... his the image zoom on the top of english and just under it read what it says
good eye, but how limited?
probably limited to playstation one games. i can still pop in some tekken 3 and it will run, just not ps2 games.
It sure does. I wonder as to how limited the backwards compatability is as I was looking to pick this up. I have a few games that I would like to play on the PS2 still, but am not going to buy last gen tech to do it.
still it was a much needed improvement for sony.
Its smaller than the x360.
show me your proof that it is or isn't. Im not sure but to me it looks allot smaller From front. http://www.xbox365.com/gdb/... http://www.xbox365.com/gdb/... if that was how it was before then you are retarded to think that the ps3 is nopt smaller then the 360 http://www.videogamesblogge... slim might(if its the same height as phat) be taller (not even by much) but it will def be slimmer http://www.videogamesblogge...
so do you think thats what it ses ?
I have the same idea. I figured it would be here or TGS. I can't WAIT to see what the Japanese have in store for us at Tokyo game Show, man. Bubbles to everyone, even the trolls. I'm happy to be going broke this holiday season
nice one. Someone must be in a good mood. Let's hope that we can all get along now..........yeah right...
I think it's looking really nice. Looks much better in this video than it did in some of the other shots I've seen so far. Looking at it in motion, in the hands of a person, it's looking good.
