PS3 Super Slim unboxing - GamesRadar and PlayStation The Official Magazine look at the new PS3

Sony sent us a shiny, new, super slim PlayStation 3, so we did what we always do when we get new things: Set up a camera and ripped the box apart. Check out GamesRadar and PlayStation The Official Magazine's unboxing of the new PS3 redesign. 

So, slim enough for you? Let us know in the comments if you're planning on picking one up, or if you're current Slim (or fat) PS3 is good enough.

    That was such a charming video and damn, that slider on the super slim looked so fun!

    I love you, Wikiparez! Also, Anne Lewis I guess.

    Mikel tore that shit apart

    I'll take my old "fat" PS3 with the backwards compatibility over the slim models any day.

    Most of the "good" games got HD Remixes, so who cares about backwards compatibility at this point?

    Probably people with "good" games in their collection that either weren't mainstream or bro-gamer enough to get an HD remake and don't have the real estate to keep their PS2 plugged in all the time? Or those who don't really care about HD who already own perfectly good copies of their favorite games. Who again don't have the floorspace for a PS2. If Backwards compatibility doesn't matter to you, that's perfectly fine just don't go trying to write it off for the rest of the world because you don't care.

    17 years worth of games you don't have to repurchase or keep other consoles connected for is pretty appealing to me.

    You're not alone, I also prefer the slot loaded disc drive. Especially since I keep my PS3 on it's side (vertical). I can just see the clips that hold that little door in place breaking and gravity taking over, thus leading to an always exposed spinning disc.
  • BladedFalcon - September 28, 2012 2:16 p.m.

    Am I the only one who doesn't actually prefer the new "sliding" disc tray? I mean... isn't that a bit of a step backwards? With the current one, the inner reader is completely safe from any kind of tampering. With this model, you're back to the PSone Era in which you're in danger of any stranger (or worse, little sibling,s or in my case little nephews)accidentally opening it, or worse, getting the laser lens scratched. Of course, it's not really that HUGE deal overall because as long as you take care of the console, it's really the same thing, but i wouldn't really consider it a "plus"

    There's probably some kind of lock on it so you can't open while it's in use.

    You are not the only one, when I got my slim PS3, I thought the only thing that would now get released by Sony and not leave me behind (although this has not) would be the PS4, the sliding disk cover is more of a step backwards, rather than ahead. But these are the last days of this console, the first time I saw a slim PS2 was towards the end of the PS2
  • CountRichtertoffen - September 28, 2012 1:48 p.m.

    The new PS3 is so great that it needs two boxes to fully harness its power.
  • Daruniah - September 28, 2012 12:33 p.m.

    This it it. This is the time I finally get a PS3. P.S. Lazzer Thyme!!

    My first guess when they released that blank picture was "PS3 Mini." Holy shit, I was almost completely right except for the name.
  • Freshieb - September 28, 2012 11:20 a.m.

    This was announced literally a month after I got the first slim, otherwise I'd have been all over that sexy ass sliding disk tray.
