Is the Super Slim PlayStation 3 worth the upgrade?
22 January 2012
Summary: The latest PS3 slims down to its smallest size ever while retaining everything we like -- and a few things we don't -- about the PlayStation 3 gaming console.
Pros: The Super Slim PlayStation 3 shrinks a powerful gaming machine into an even tinier package while maintaining the same features as its predecessors: a great gaming library and a strong array of streaming services, including Netflix, Amazon, Vudu, and NFL Sunday Ticket.
Cons: It seems Sony isn't yet able to bring down the price of the PS3, even though some cost-cutting design choices have been made. The Super Slim PS3's odd sliding disc tray and glossy plastic encasing make it appear cheap. Also, a few annoyances like not including HD cables and the lack of an infrared IR port should have been resolved by now.
Conclusion: Overall, the new Sony Playstation 3 12GB Gaming Console is warmly for those who don`t already have an older model. Its not quite the price drop many were expecting, but its still a fantastic package for the money. If you have already got a PS3 Slim, though, you have got very little to gain here but reclaiming some space under the TV.
Cons: With the Sony Playstation 3 12GB in hand, you can`t help but feel like Sony`s not passing on enough of its manufacturing cost-cutting to the customer. It feels flimsy, particularly the top-loading BD drive and toy-tastic power and eject buttons.
Conclusion: The Playstation 3 500 GB Gaming Console stands apart from the crows when it comes to multimedia functionality and overall game quality. The PS3 focuses more on action or mature game types, which works perfectly for some and not so well for others. Overall, the PS3 500 GB Gaming Console from Sony offers hardcore gamers the most intense and mature gaming experience around!
Cons: On its downside, you will locate that the device attracts finger prints easily. Also, it creates problem while Tray Loading (soon can get belt wear problems, lazer diode exposure, etc.). And, authentic spares are very expensive, so do maintain with great care.
Conclusion: All in all, this is by far the good gaming console available in the market and that too accompanied by a limited edition of two games-Granturismo and Unchartered 3 Full Version. Of course, it may not be revolutionary, but its still the impressive machine in a much smaller package.
Cons: The odd sliding disc tray and glossy plastic encasing make it appear cheap. Also, it attracts finger prints easily.
Excerpt: Spillkonsoller som kobles til TV-en er ikke hverdagsmat her på Hardware.no. Vi skriver som oftest om PC-komponenter, programvare og bærbare datamaskiner, men også om TV-er og mediabokser. De siste årene har spillkonsoller som Xbox 360 og Playstation 3 blitt stadig viktigere konkurrenter å regne med i mediaboks-segmentet. Playstation 3 kan tross alt spille av Blu-ray-filmer og en rekke video- og musikkformater fra både minnekort og over nettverket ditt.
