    Re: A new Playstation 3 ?

    Looks good, I might need a new PS3 at some point as mine doesn't sound too happy when discs spin up at the start. I've no idea how much hard disk space I've used (only got the couple of game downloads due to the PSN issues) so 16GB would probably suit me fine.

    The 16 gigs would be pushing it, with game installs alone, never mind how mahoosive some of the patches for games are in comparison to 360 games

    I think they are going down the Xbox $99 console route !!

    Re: A new Playstation 3 ?

    They should make it bigger instead of smaller. So they can put some decent cooling in it.
    Same goes for 360. No idea why they keep making stuff slimmer, same with tv sets. Maybe to make it cheaper to ship them?

    Agree with the decent cooling. Had to buy a PS3 slim after my original PS3 died. I really miss the backwards compatibility for my PS2 games.

    Re: A new Playstation 3 ?

    Still running an original 60GB (although now has 320GB) PS3 Phat here. Not put a fan wrong on it. I'd probably replace it when the PS4 comes out ... if it breaks probably try and fix the thing. It is useful having the 4 USB ports, although WHY can't they stick one on the back?

    Having to have my PlayTV hanging out of the front was ridiculous.

    The whole thing feels cheap and the sliding cover will inevitably break. I can also confirm the BD drive is louder as there's nothing but that cheap flimsy bit of plastic between the drive and the outside world (no noise dampening whatsoever!)... The 2nd gen PS3 slim (with 40nm RSX chip) is still the best option imo .

    Re: A new Playstation 3 ?

    Pricing of these new PS3s seem a bit bizarre as well. The 12GB has some nice discounts, but for a non-gimped version you're still paying what you paid two years ago.
