    I think it may be time to upgrade from my 80GB.
    500GBs sounds much better. (Only have 11GB left on my phat PS3)

    ...I think I like the top loader, actually. Less parts equal less wear-and-tear, so it's more reliable that way. They toned down the beast size-wise, which is also a big plus. Pretty cool so-far, shame that it "feels cheap" - the quality of plastic concerns me.

    I might pick one of those up. I've been wanting to pick up another PS3 anyway.

    I still don't see anything about swapping the hard drive. If I CAN swap the hard drive, then I'm all over the 250GB one. I have a 500GB hard drive I'm using on my Wii, and I simply don't need 500GBs of space for my Wii stuff, while a PS3 I would.

    I'd rather wait to check how the cooling works in this one. Jumping the bandwagon isn't my sort of thing, really...

    Plus, this means that somewhere down the line, I'll have to buy *3* PS3's for a complete collection... Damn, that's not going to be cheap. :P

    EDIT: This site happens to offer some really nice, detailed photos of the new unit.

    Wouldn't YOU like to know?
    Is this the one with the 12GB of flash memory?

    The top-loader is definitely a plus. Last year my cousin loaded a Blu-Ray movie into my PS3 slim while there was already a game disc in it. Basically, two discs were wedged into the slot, and I went ape-shit. With a top-loading setup, you'd have to be a complete moron to not know a disc was already in there.

    And the 500GB is great, especially for PS+ subscribers. Hell, if I can fit a larger hard drive into that form factor, I'll probably just get the cheaper model and swap out the 250GB for a 2TB drive.

    But I'm in no rush to get this, just yet. I'll wait for the early adopters to give their verdict on it.

    So is the US not getting the 12gb version or will it be released later?

    Feel free to give me your old one. :D

    I like the top loading feature but can't see this needed like the PSP E1000.

    The E1000 was as needed as a punch in the nose - nobody wanted it then and nobody wants it now. I still shudder at the lack of Wi-Fi, horrible built quality and even worse sound. It's the poor man's PSP.

    I don't know... I never played the PSP I owned for wi-fi games, and it wouldn't be hard to hook up my PSP to my PS3 at the time... Still, it's a non issue. What IS an issue is if I'm buying this or a regular ol slim PS3. The make or break bit for me is swapable hard drives. If yes, then yes, if no, then no. Simple as that.

    Swap Magic hack in the future? Because I notice the sliding top remind me of my slim ps2 with flip top for swap magic.

    Look at the Flag...
    I'm more curious about the motherboard than anything else.

    By the way look where the blue ray lens is located... not great especially if you have children, they'll put their finger on the lens and ruin your system within minutes.

    Proud to be Portuguese but I am in USA.
    I dont like this one thing: Slide on the top. I am glad that I have original SLIM PS3. One thing I like about this one: Its smaller. It doesnt matter. Why buy one if your original SLIM is not broken and already is hackable ? :)

    I'm pretty happy with my old phat PS3 with 1TB hard disk.
    This PS3 looks just cheap and a step back.
    The size is definetly a plus, but everything else doesn't look anything better than what I have.
