Rumor: This Is the New PS3

 Pages PREV 1 2
 

I would ask why they would release a slim ps3 while the ps4 is upcoming in the medium term but that is exactly what happened with the ps2 slim...

Depending on the price point in comparison to the current slims this might be a pick-up for me. Of course thats only because my last PS3 died (40Gb fat model) and the repair costs are ludicrous (unless theyve recently come down at all).

Who is this for?
Unless it can play ps2 games, who cares?

.........

People who don't already have a PS3? I thought that would be fairly obvious.

Hey man, just a heads up. writing this much in a post will give you a warning for low content. Maybe write something that contributes to the topic?

FOOLS! Little do you know All electronics are powered by pipe cleaners and cheap injection-molded plastics.

The big question is... what features are they removing this time? :P

Silly Jedi you know they won't remove features until they've already advertised them.

They'll probably remove hardware support for the OtherOS feature and they might even remove the free PSN network access. The PS3 still sold well after removing it's main feature so let's see what happens when the next main feature is removed!

The PS3's main feature is to play PS3 games.

This might be what it takes to make me pick up a PS3. Not one of the new models, mind. But the price of the current model would no doubt go down under AUD $300 and then I'll nab it. Then I can play... um... I dunno, Uncharted? I'm mostly just getting it to spite my Xbox 360 and Wii sitting in the same room, if I'll be frank.

There are a few PS3 exclusives I'm interested in, just not off the top of my head. That's not a good sign, is it.

PS3, now with 100% added fugly.

The original model with the Spider-Man font wasn't exactly a looker, either... ol' George Foreman grill and all that.

Yeah, I agree with the general consensus forming that it ain't pretty. Still think I could design a better looking console.
It does make me intrigued that the older models might come down in price now though...

I like how nicely predictable the Escapist is:

Anything about a 360: When is it gonna die on its owners this time?
Anything about a PS3: What features did they remove, remember when they got hacked?
Anything about a Mac: Does Steve Jobs haunt this one, or just his ability to rip other people off?
Anything about a PC: OMG BEST THING EVAR MUST WANT!!!!!!!!

"Ya, after we removed the ability for four people to play and all backwards compatability entirely, we also decided that, since the majority of people playing on a PS3 are going to be playing games like CoD and Battlefield, we designed the PS3 specifically so that it would only play games that were immensely popular and had Multiplayer compatability. To make sure this worked, we tried Mass Effect 2 on it and, lo and behold, the PS3 incinerated the copy the minute we put it inside. We are now completely confident in this machine's success."

Anyone who has just recently had a PS3 break on them, and has yet to get a replacement?

Yeah, I have a few older consoles with backups. This might be nice if I can stick my old HDD into it and it's cheaper.

faspxina:
That's actually the new controller.
You put it on your head and dance while your brainwaves are registered and emit orders to the console, it's pretty intuitive.

Still better than Kinect XD

Consoles were so expensive this gen that I wound up going with a PC for my primary gaming machine

Or wants to get one at the end of the console generation? Like what Microsoft is doing with the $99 X360?

Pretty simple. I needed a new computer for school anyway. It wasn't too hard to add $100 or so to the cost of a base model and get something that would work for gaming. $600 for a launch PS3, or $250 + a monthly fee for a 360, on the other hand...

For Sony's sake I hope its fake as it looks hideous, with each successive console they punish any potential latecomers with a worse console each time.

Starting to wish I'd got a PS3 at launch and been done with it rather than having gone through 3 ring of deaths.

what kind of specs do you end up with?

Depending on the price, I might get it just to play the PS3 exclusives now at a lower price. InFamous, Uncharted, Heavy Rain, Motorstorm... Waiting 5 years might just pay off.

what kind of specs do you end up with?

Pretty low end by gaming standards (the primary goal was a laptop I could take notes on in class, which limited my options), but high enough that it can run pretty much anything released prior to 2008, and plenty of stuff released since. There's still new games coming out with low enough specs for me to run, thanks to the extended console cycle, which has driven the specs way down on multiplatform games.

If a desktop had been an option, I'd probably still be running everything on high.

So no one is noticing how the power plugin is smaller and as such the power supply would be less powerful and as suck this is obviously not a PS3.
Good night.

If a new model means a lower price point than what it already is now, then I might actually won't have to decide between paying my car insurance bill and gaming! WOOOHOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOobutseriouslythisisjustaspointlessastheps1'slastmodel.

hey if i can play ps2 and ps3 games on it im cool with it. dont even care about the ethstetics, as long as it works. i can put a box over and ugly ps3 not an ugly cat

It´s a cost reduced revision of the other cost reduced revision.

A Cost reduction WITHIN a Cost Reduction?
COST-CEPTION!
BWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAA

You wish, it´s more like how your girlfriend and or wife starts looking like her mum as years go by. :D

Hey! There are some girls on here! And I look nothing like my mother....... she's a migget!

OT if this is a new cheaper PS3 I can tell me mate who's always wanted, but couldn't afford

It is ugly as heck, so that seems to be about rigth for a PS3. (Not a statement about the quality of it's games ^_^)

... looks real... maybe should get it my launch PS3 is turning to poop anyhow.. Im game Sony

Looks kinda weird to be honest but taking up less space is a bonus for most people, I'm happy enough with my regular slim but if you haven't picked up a PS3 so far, why not this one.

Is it just me or does it not look any different?

So wait, if this is true, then we'll have a slim version of the slim version of the original PS3?

GAMECEPTION!
