I didn't see any duplicates so far on N4G. Feel free to report this article if there are any earlier submissions (I cannot report articles as of yet).

About the PS3, I am happy I already own a Slim with the button LED's, the silver, and the stereoscopic PS Logo. However, this new system is better under the hood. Less power consumption, more green.

^^I hope so, my 60gb is already on its last legs. It takes about 14 tries to get the disc out of my PS3 with the Eject button.

I'm not sure if I should buy this PS3 or just have Sony fix my 60gb when it breaks for $150.

DaTruth4360d ago (Edited 4360d ago )

I'm hoping if I send my broken 60 gig back to them after the pricecut, they'll give me a new CECH-3000 for next to nuthin'! I heard somewhere they give you the choice!

I prefer my 60gig with BC and card readers, but if it may just break down again in a year, I'd rather a new one!

Usually small fan = more RPM to move the same amount opf air, and this mean more noise

LOGICWINS4360d ago (Edited 4360d ago )

@Datruth- I hope thats true!

@Noob- I bought my PS3 in 2006 for $600. As a loyal Sony consumer, I don't feel I should have to pay full price for a slim. I'm hoping Sony offers me the new model for a DEEP discount when I send in my 60gb.

@BrianG- Yeah, definetly upgrading. I never use the BC feature anyways.

BrianG4360d ago (Edited 4360d ago )

I've had the eject issue a few times myself.

One trick that works some times is holding the eject button while the system is on, does a "manual eject". The "fan test" is another desperate way to remove a disc from older systems like my 40Gb.

Also I'd go for the upgrade when you send it in.

What are the new specs? The translated page doesn't say much (?)

Surfaced4360d ago

Same stuff, just more cost-cutting.

Also it consumes less energy and is much more quiet.

@ You Noob

wow, didn't figure that out. Thanks... shows how much I know about the physics behind this.

But maybe everything will balance out since this model will generate less heat to begin with.

Wow... really cutting on the manufacturing costs I see. Even the PS logo has been reduced to a printed symbol, instead of a tactile plastic one.

Looks like this model will be much quieter than existing slims, since the 120mm fan has been replaced by an 80mm fan.

Curious about the removal of LEDs, though. It's not like those are expensive.

postofficebuddy4360d ago

Every little bit helps. They're going to be shipping several million of these things. Even if removing the LEDs only saves them $0.50 (Total guess. It could be more than that) a unit, if they ship 10 million of this model that's a $5 million savings.

BakedGoods4360d ago

Removing the LED's probably saves them $0.05. Maybe even lower.

pandabear4360d ago

No LED's means no YLOD :-)

I still have 60GB fat which has been replaced by Sony already, about a year ago and offered me a slim but said no, think if I need another repair I'll get a slim now.
