    I also heard the slim PS3 will be cheaper as well.

    But this announcement Sony will make could also be about another hardware thingy.

    Reality is what is true/tangible, therefore a rumour (which is inherently unverified/false) can become a reality.

    Yeah the grammar is otherwise poor, but that's Americans for you.

    I don't think the lardyness of the PS3 is the thing that's costing Sony the console war..

    Make it have a gloss and it would look so much better instead of the matt black that makes it look cheap

    Same here, it does look like a P*ssies console in comparison to the old.
    Kalniel: "Nice review Tarinder - would it be possible to get a picture of the case when the components are installed (with the side off obviously)?"
    CAT-THE-FIFTH: "The Antec 300 is a case which has an understated and clean appearance which many people like. Not everyone is into e-peen looking computers which look like a cross between the imagination of a hyperactive 10 year old and a Frog."
    TKPeters: "Off to AVForum better Deal - £20+Vat for Free Shipping @ Scan"
    for all intents it seems to be the same card minus some gays name on it and a shielded cover ? with OEM added to it - GoNz0.

    No but when you've got a halo product like the PS3 in your range and it's not performing as well as you'd like a bit of rebranding to go with your price drop can seem like a very good idea....if it works for them that is.

    Why isn't it performing? From what sales figures i've seen, its selling at the same sort of levels that the 360 did at the same period of time. The 360 has 1 year of extra sales over the PS3, with FFXIII (will sell PS3's by the bucket load in Japan) and GT5 still to be released Sony will continue to keep pace with the 360.

    So question is, why do you think its not performing?

    I'm not bashing Sony... well maybe a little but I don't mean any harm, regardless of sales figures look at how quickly they've come up with the slimmer, sexier rebranded PS3. It was six or seven years before they squeezed the last of the life from the original Playstation hardware with the PSone, the PS2 got it's slimline version four years after the original hit the shelves...

    Now the PS3 get's it's slimmed down model less than three years after launch? After Sony bragged about having designed it for a much longer console generation it doesn't seem right. Whether I think the PS3 isn't performing or not is irrelevant, I think somebody at Sony thinks so or we wouldn't be seeing a PS3 Slim coming to shelves this quickly.

    I hope it works for them, I'm looking forward to GT5 and Heavy Rain myself this year, I picked up the console pretty much for those games (well them and MGS4) and I think between GT5, Heavy Rain and God of War 3 they're set for a much better year than last year.
