Playstation 3 Slim Announced

Playstation 3 SlimSome news today, the Playstation 3 is getting a “slim” version of the console, similar to the PS2 getting a slim version several years ago. I thought I would write a quick blog about this. In my opinion, this thing is NOT worth it. With an entry point of $300 USD and a 250GB, I don’t think it’s worth picking up. Why?

In the next year, there are rumors for the next Xbox system, code named “Durango” to come out. Also in another month the next generation Wii U console will come out (which I also do not think is worth buying and I blogged the reasons being the other day). So with the next generation of systems coming out, whatever flavor of gamer you are, why would you want to drop all that money on a current generation system? Well before judging it based on that, is there really any sell points to this thing?


Well, the new design, it is slim. It’s said to be much smaller than the current PS3. About 20% smaller and lighter. Also, a major sell point for Sony, it’s currently the only gaming system that can do Blu Ray. In fact, some people say it’s the best Blu Ray player on the market because it’s connected to the internet and can play pretty much all the Blu Ray movies out there with the necessary updates. So we can chalk that up as a sell point. But what else?

Well the real appeal of this, Sony is catering now to the general gaming market and trying to compete with the new Wii U. The new package with the slim console comes bundled with Uncharted 3. For Sony fans and gamer’s alike, this is quiet a nice package to pick up. And if you don’t already own PS3 (including myself), maybe this is finally time to get the console.


I was a huge Playstation fan back in the day. But I don’t see much in Playstation these days. The titles aren’t that great and although the online is a free, clunky online system that doesn’t compare to what Xbox Live has established. ┬áPersonally, for the next generation of consoles coming out, I’m going to pass. But will you pick it up?
