You know sony is still losing around $40 to $50 per console, but of course they anticipate more sales with the price reduction.

Nice pics man. I think I'll stick with my Hulk PS3 for now.
sony makes 47$ per ps3 profit :) it is on gamespot main page if you are interested!

Last I heard Sony and Microsoft have been losing money with each sale of their consoles but that is made up from game's sales and royalties etc. The only real winners are the hardware manufacturers.

Thanks ;)

One thing i can say that i really like about the PS3 slim is the white lights when you turn the ps3 on. its a very nice look, and instead of that green and blue light stuff, its just nicer to look at.

Don't do it with the 60g it's one of the originals with hardware backwards compatibility. If you want just toss in a bigger hard drive and you won't notice the difference between it and the slim.

lol TPU is going to be famous :p

Talk about me being out of the loop :eek: Last time I only HEARD about ps3 slim rumors... Now they are at the GS I drove by Friday o_O Nice pics :p And ANOTHER pricecut? At least I'll feel better about making a good deal when I bought it... it was a special at dell... PS3 40gb (don't need more) + extra controller (total of two) + HDMI cable for 360$ after tax and ship... a PS3 Slim would cost me 321$ after tax at NJ... right?

I'm not trying to be a fanboy here but I find the PS3 is pretttty good and at an attracting price!

P.S: Woot 2500th post o_O

My 60gb fat PS3 isn't loud at all or hot. Got mine the day it came out. The size of the slim appeals to me, but not the loss of backwards compatibility, extra usb ports, card reader, etc.

I looked on eBay for a 60GB original PS3, and they are selling for much larger amounts then the 80GB and 40GB models that are newer and lack backwards compatibility. Seems you can buy an 80GB PS3 for about $150 to $200 on eBay used. An original 60GB is going for $250 to $350 USED. Brand new still in box going for around $400+ up to $800 (with a few games and controllers thrown in).

So the main difference (except the obvious ones :rolleyes:) between my 40gb PS3 and the Slim is linux compatibility right?

The other main difference was the 45nm cpu so they could cut more costs.

Oh yea... that was an obvious part for me though :p btw off-topic but I just came back from Myrtle Beach... North and South Carolina is a pretty nice place :D I used to live other there (SC) :p

So the PS3 slim is a pretty good buy! but how does linux compatibility cut PS3 costs?

The Linux compatibility wasn't cut for costs was cut so everyone would be using a Uniform OS from here on out. At least from what I understood.

Homebrew is what makes the DS and PSP, everyone I know who has either one of these, either has an R4 or has modded their PSP.

Any chance you could look on the psu for the speccs, it it only handles 110v or if it's like the phat and it goes 100-240v. Thinking about importing one.
