    I don't care how slim it is. No PS3 is worth that much money.

    Yeah. The Playstation 3 is still way too expensive compared to his competitors. Blu-ray playability is just a poor excuse!

    that place
    299 Euros = $462 Canadian = $424 US
    I don't think these are the actual prices for North America.

    It will be SLIM that will be the MAJOR difference! lol

    If it aint broke why fix it!? ... They are doing what they usually do make it SLIMMER and smaller and compact like they did with the psone/ps2 slim consoles but essentially keep the same functionality [​IMG]


    They may however re introduce backward compatibility for ALL PS3's including this SLIM version by software methods as they have previously mentioned is a big possibility [​IMG]

    Yes, it is cheap for Europe. I've been looking at PS3s for some time now and the cheapest new one I could find was about 400 Euros and considering that this is a new model I'd say it's pretty nice for them to have a lower price on the newer one.

    lol, what Maz said. If it isn't gonna be capable of anything new, I'm satisfied with my current PS3. Not like I'm concerned with shelf space to that extent.

    "Oh no, I can put the PS3 here, but then I can't put the DVD player here! What'm I gonna do!"

    I get what you mean but for those that don't the PS3 is a MEDIA CENTRE in its own right you don't need anything else with music cd/dvd/blu-ray/xvid/mp4/mp3 etc etc formats and capable of using USB MEM STICKS/SD CARD (not all models have SD card readers) / USB EXTERNAL HD's as well as streaming media to it from a PC [​IMG]

    So the dimensions of the actual console is irrelevant ...my view is as it is now its more ROBUST and less likely to suffer any physical damage!

    Slim or Fat, it doesn't matter to me. As long as Sony finally realizes it needs a price drop! I mean, manufacturing is down by 70% so it should cost less. The 80GB PS3 is getting pushed off the shelves which means we only have the 160GB which is like what, $400?

    I haven't really been fallowing PS3 pricing. Is this thing any cheaper or is it just slimmer for the same price?

    i dont think hacking would still be very plausible but the fact tht they are getting a slim is either
    1.) they are selling ps3 very well and hence like the ps2, want to include a new console to make it even better
    2.) Not as good as they want it to sell so a new console to impress the ppl
    I think the 1st option is more appropriate esp since i read (on gbatemp i think) that, the producers or sony are satisfied with their sales considering maybe what they were expecting due to the price but price is not as big of a factor IMO than the games that are available at the moment on the ps3
    PS2 still sells not bcz it is cheap but bcz it is the best console of all times (atleast i think it is and so do the statistics say so - sales,popularity,games and ratings)
