    I like the slide tray, it's unique, and it's not as pointlessly small as the ps2 super slim model
  • zombi3grim - September 19, 2012 2:36 p.m.

    I plan on picking up another PS3 soon so this will probably be the model I get.

    Aren't the older slim models cheaper? Or is it the tilting action you're going for?
  • zombi3grim - September 21, 2012 2:12 p.m.

    I dont care about price. When I decide to pick up a PS3, I want the newest model out.
  • KnowYourPokemon - September 19, 2012 2:08 p.m.

    It just seems... extremely pointless. The people who want a PS3 by now probably have one. Otherwise they're rereleasing an old console with a new look for practically the same price as the WiiU and expecting people to pay for the PS3 instead... don't really see that happening unless there's a ton of Sony console fans out there that were waiting for this. And hell, Nintendo is releasing their next system. Microsoft is working on their next system. Maybe Sony should take the hint it's time to start looking at the next gen and not trying to stretch this one out as much as possible, or do we need more games coming out for it like Skyrim and Mass Effect 3?

    Now that there's a disc tray maybe I should put a disc in, shake it up, and claim it ruins discs.
  • CitizenThom - September 19, 2012 11:18 a.m.

    I like the tray (when my first PS3 YLOD'd after four and a half years, I also lost the game disc that was in the system at the time) if it is basically an open tray that a user sets the disc in and then closes the cover. I'd like to see a return of PS2 backwards compatability, I loved the upconvert on my PS2 games on my original PS3.

    You know that you just needed to hold on to the eject button, plug in the playstation while still holding the button and when the fans would get really high. start tapping an the eject button dadam the disc is out. works on all ps3 models wow shocker

    "I need this!" - said no PS3 owner.
  • ultimatepunchrod - September 19, 2012 1:42 p.m.

    I doubt they're targeting current PS3 owners. That's kind of like seeing a current slim on the shelf and saying, "Man, I already have a PS3, so why would I want that." I think the new model looks nice, but I just got my slim a year ago, so there's no need for me to upgrade. I do like the HDD sizes. Those are good for new owners.

    "I need this!" - said every 360 owner.
  • ObliqueZombie - September 20, 2012 6:32 a.m.

    Hehehe, close! The fiance and I sorely want a PS3, so this one MIGHT have to be it.
  • laurenhiya21 - September 19, 2012 10:25 a.m.

    Seriously Sony? ._. Does there really need to be a new model? Honestly I like the old slim better (in terms of looks) and I know I would be worried if this is less stable/hardy than the older slim... Either way, I don't have a PS3 yet, I plan on not getting one for a while, and this certainly doesn't change my mind about that :/
  • GrandmaSlayer - September 19, 2012 10:12 a.m.

    Is it me or is this article really f*cking sarcastic? We should be trying to make current gen technology as small as possible before ditching it for a suitcased size next gen machine! look how small the ps2 slim was before the PS3
  • jameseverett - September 19, 2012 8:45 a.m.

    It sure looks ugly. Nothing like as cool as the original design.
  • Moondoggie1157 - September 19, 2012 7:56 a.m.

    It figures that they would add the Sony cheese grater AFTER I buy the first slim... Dammit...
  • jackthemenace - September 19, 2012 7:48 a.m.

    If only PS3s still had Backwards compatibility- It's the only reason I bought one of the classic models, and if that goes tits-up, I'm gonna have to find myself a new one of the same to carry on playing PS2 games. Which is a bugger, because I could really use a disc tray rather than the sucky-inny one. So far, I've had a couple of major problems with it, and they all involved the sucky-inny disk tray being balls.
  • mjgconcepts - September 19, 2012 6:45 a.m.

    I had the Fat and currently have a Slim... so im not interested in buying another PS3 model, but can Sony ever make a good looking home console? It looks like something out of a 80s Scifi flick that's supposed to take place in the "future".
