Why the PS3 Slim has a slim chance

Craig from Tech Olive writes, "Sony Entertainment's newest creation has come as no surprise to most Sony gaming console "fanboys," as the PlayStation 2 received a newer, slimmer face lift a couple of years after its initial release. It's now the PlayStation 3's turn on the surgery bed, but don't get your hopes up when the September 1st release date rolls around. Just like the PS2 Slim, the new PS3 Slim has its major flaws. Yeah sure, this newer revision is – according to Sony – 32 percent smaller, 36 percent lighter and consumes 34 percent less power, but it's really not all roses."

Because the media has allready decided the PS3 will fail so that means the PS3slim will also fail despite not letting it even selling.

They will all be eating there words (words coming from scared people)

The PS3 is doing fine now and is easily going to be doing better with this new price drop.

The PS3 was selling better world wide after its first price reduction to $399.99 and it was still $50.00 dollars more than the Xbox 360 pro and around $120.00 more than the arcade. Now that the pricing is on equal footing with the Xbox 360 it will be selling better than the Xbox 360 yet again.

Even when the PS3 was selling at $399.99 the Xbox 360 was still not making any head way over the sales lead they had by releasing more than a year ahead of the PS3.

Blog site like this one are not real media sites, sites like this one are making all the stupid comments and dumb articles that have no base in reality.

"One of the biggest problems you’ll encounter with the PS3 Slim will be overheating, no doubt about it. The PS2 Slim overheated and so will this next generation. Smaller space equals less cooling fans and smaller heat sinks. Prepare to put this baby on an ice block."

If the uninformed read this article they would be under the impression that the PS3 is the most unreliable and featureless console on the market.

Funny, I know quite a few people that have a PS2 slim and never had a problem with overheating. the PS2 wasn't a powerhouse, I just cannot see it.
This article is trying to lead the reader to the conclusion that the PS3 slim will "obviously" be unreliable. (like the 360)

The writer can say all day long that he is not a 360 "fanboy" but the article reeks of it.

PS3 SLim has indeed a slimmer chance, we dare to say it because we SONY are God - the CREATOR! Below us just hopeless fans or fangirls who don't want to believe it. But it's OK, at least they spend money for us, not you gamers!

Stuck on 3rd place this gen is much more butt hurting! We NOW must sell PS3 with low-cost materials and hope our fanbase who already purchased old PS3 to "downgrade" to the SLIM! that way we can DOUBLING sales number quicker than we just expecting sales from new buyers.

You can tell the anti-PS3 media aren't gettin' any sleep and have
bunch of gray hairs since the slim's announcement.
