VIDEO: PS3 Slim unboxing!

Does it exist? Yes! Do we have one? Hell yes! A sleek new PS3 Slim was hand-delivered to our office just hours after it was announced today at Sony's gamescom conference. That's right, the slimmer, lighter, awesomer, $300 PS3 Slim is sexing up our previously modest offices right now. See for yourself - below is a video of the seductive device's unboxing, as well as a bunch of photos.

Above: We once laughed at how bloated the PS3 looked next to a 360 - no longer!


Above: The Wii is still the smallest console, which is no surprise, but at least the PS3 no longer looks like it just ate one


Above: The now current current-gen lineup


Above: How the PS3 Slim stacks up against the competition...cue rimshot!


Above: It's roughly the same shape, just scaled down


Above: Thinner and shorter, for sure, but it does look to be slightly wider


Above: The rear ports are pretty much unchanged - same trunk, less junk


Above: Brett compares the PS3 with the PS3 Slim, and Joe is a total Xbot

    Phantomsight, HDMI cables are only that expensive the store. Online they're only about 10 bucks, and they work just as well.

    i was saving up £300 for the old ps3 (I predicted I could get it at christmas) so im gonna get this instead, if its about the same price as the old ps3's, before these came out.

    For those who want BC, Sony just stated that it's "off the table" as in no NEW PS3s will have it out of the box via hardware ala 60gb and 20gbs. Interestingly, they've patented a way for all PS3's to emulate a PS2. So if you want to play PS2 games you may have to wait for a firmware update, but I wouldn't wait forever you'll be missing out on fantastic PS3 games. There's a hundred dollar add-on you can get though... a PS2.

    HAHA!! Nice pic of Joe!! Maybe now i can consider getting a ps3!
  • may.be.vital - August 19, 2009 1:48 p.m.

    I like the smaller design and the smaller price tag (Why couldn't you arrive 8 months ago!!!!) but IMHO the current shape sucks... I was hoping they would change it... :( and the texture looks like sandpaper haha :P Oh well this will give a boost to PS3 and in this recession sony could use it :)
  • pikachu2000 - August 19, 2009 12:52 p.m.

    Hey, I got a couple of questions. Are there any specs on it yet? Will this version be able to play PS2 games or are they still anti-PS2 as of late? This will determine weither I will buy this version or not.
