    Yeahhhh, I was wondering when they'd release something like this. I had a 7" one that attached to the back of my PS2 slim. Man, I loved that thing. Great for road trips.

    I'm considering picking up a Slim PS3 next month off of NewEgg but can't decide.

    Would like to enjoy a few of the exclusive titles and also FIFA, NHL, etc on a console.

    I can't decide as I already have a great desktop setup, but miss the lack of some of the great sport games available.

    I currently have a HTPC on my 47 inch SAMSUNG, but am thinking about using the PS3 for movies and then giving the HTPC to my mom as an upgrade.

    So who owns a Slim PS3 and has comments for me? :p

    Do it. The sports games and exclusives alone are worth it. I game on PC, Wii, PS3, and I had the 360. The PS3 slim took all of my time.

    What more do you want to know? The great thing about the exclusives on the PS3 is how long they are. Most are well over 14 hours with some going over 30 or 40. Sports games are sports games regardless of console. I game on Madden NFL 10 a lot.

    Is there a solid list of exclusives coming out in the future for PS3? Trying to surf through here and google a little, keep getting crap.

    How about some people recommend their top games as well.. Please? :D

    Uncharted: Drakes Fortune
    Resistance: Fall of Man
    Metal Gear Solid 4

    Those are my top exclusives so far. Still going to get Killzone 2, Resistance 2, and Uncharted 2.

    On a side note, I just beat Resistance: Fall of man. That end level is in the top 5 most difficult end levels ever. Nothing will ever top Breakdown for an end level, but this one came close.

    I'd also recommend the one's JC pointed out along with their sequels. KZ2 is an alright game but I didn't find it very fun. My personal favorite exclusives are LittleBigPlanet and InFamous. I can't think of a single exclusive that isn't a quality game.

    On a side note, I picked up a white controller off of the Egg today so I'll finally be able to play some LBP with real life friends. I was very tempted to get Street Fighter IV with it, but saw that SSF4 was coming out soon so I just left it alone. Do you guys think that SSF4 will be worth the wait and 10 extra bucks? You'll be getting more characters, better online play, along with some other stuff..

    Yeah SSIV would be worth $10 extra I think. SFIV kicks ass anyway, I have it on PC though.

    *Sigh* I hate the downloading patches. I finally finish up work, I get my brand new copy of Uncharted 2 out, I have a few hours free, I pop the disc in and............ There is an update required to play... Yeah, 6 of them to be exact. First one 20MB, no biggie. Second one 118MB!!!!

    Ah dude I'm on chapter 25/26. I don't want it to end ;_;
    I'm surprised at how tough this game can be even on easy.

    If you have a kid, download PAIN. My 5 year old son LOVES chucking people into destructible settings with a slingshot. It's hilarious watching him play that game.

    I can't see price drops on the console happening anytime soon. They're having a hard enough time keeping up with demand as it is, plus I heard that they're not making much profit off console sales right now anyways. They're selling like hotcakes at $300 now, so why cut profits by lowering the price right now? You only drop the price when you're competing against something or when there's a drop in sales.

    OK, the train sequence on uncharted 2 sucks monkey balls. First they have the super chopper, then they give you a mini boss that can stop a grenade with his balls and come back for more. Then you get to the lovely snowy area where you have to kill everyone because if you try to escape, even if you stealth killed the ground troops and no one has seen you, two guys appear out of nowhere and kill your ass.

    Believe me, I am very vague on the details. You will know it when you get there and you will agree with me.

    that is odd JC, that was one of the few games I was able to play through on hard no problem. I know what area you are talking about and it did take me more than once to get through - but i would say 3 times at the most.

    i just sat back and headshot* as much as possible. always use cover and take your time. this is very surprising for me as normally games are soo much more frustrating for me than most people. almost makes me wanna smile ;) lol sry...

    I didnt find that level any different than the others really. The end boss took me a few times to figure out how to kill him, definitly the most unrealistic, unplausable peice of fictional story i've seen in a while but still a pretty decent and fun game.

    The AI tactic was bum rush with shotguns and pistoles. Only when I found some grenades did it become easy.
