Thanks for showing us, I do like the idea of the new 45nm chip in it, but I dont know if it is worth getting rid of my old one for this yet.

I have never owned a PS3. And if the 60GB fat PS3's have the backwards compatibility, there really is no reason to sell it.
I would love to have a PS3 with backwards compatibility, but if I can't get one, I might as well buy the slim.
Also, Best Buy is offering free games for people to keep their fat PS3's they recently purchased within the last
30 days or so.
It appears there is another rumor going around of a GT5 bundle as well. Only time will tell if that happens.

GT5 bundle wouldn't be happening until after Christmas this year anyway. There have been confirmed dates that gets pushed back. I wouldn't plan on the bundle before 2010 at this moment.

not to sure about the PSU, but it does say 120V AC, 60Hz

Also noted the battery is 180 grams vs 193 grams from the original DS3 controller, but the battery still is 610 mAh.

Plastic is thicker on the controller also but for some reason the controller feels slightly lighter and i doubt .4oz would make that big of a difference hmmm.

Hm, really starting to think that they took the linux support out to hide the CPU speed. which is kind of bothering me..

Remember with the Fat ps3, you can see its 3.2ghz power pc.

But since you can't install linux how can you tell what it is than?

JUST to clarify i saw a few threads on gametrailer forums and they were talking about the toe ring, lmao, that is my girlfriends foot, obviously you can see both my legs in the picture and i don't have 3 legs.

And another thing by "Waist Money" i didn't mean i cant put it back together, i ment it as if something where to happen (as in it shits out within a year), than i just have to get a new one and bite the bullet.

Sorry this is just for the people who are that naive.

it is really a lot more heat efficient just got done playing a blu-ray movie (The Thing ;)) and than 2 hours of Street Fighter 4, and it was really just warm, the hottest part was where the power supply was but the air was still nothing more than warm.

it is slimmer than its counterpart, but i haven't had any problems with games or movies so far and i have played things on it since i bought it at 10a.m this morning.

i mean i wouldn't try and MOVE the console while playing a game, i suppose i can do it with madden 07 since i have a couple of copies ha.

that would be funny huh

Ok changed the Domain so its not on photobucket anymore.

I mean i have both, and i really like the "sumo" i like how big it is, makes me feel like it was worth every bit of 500 dollars i spent when i got it, but the slim is a nice addition. i mean if you have the Sumo, and its not anything better than the slim keep it until it dies and than bury it and buy the slim.

:rockout:

EDIT:

You know if they didn't have the power supply internally and made the motherboard a little bit smaller (and by the looks of it they could've) and i think it would've looked a lot more attractive.

So i took it apart again to check this for all the UK guys

according to the bottom of the psu the volts are (for those who cant read it)

AC Input 100v-240v~
2.7A-1.2A 50/60Hz

so im assuming that means you can import it

I still dont know what I think about this new model :eek:

If it runs cooler, thats great news. But I think I still like the piano black style of the 'old' model.

Am I the only one that thinks this version looks like a PS3 for kids?

If the UK price is good enough I may pick one up myself (and sell the Bluray player that I already have) ;)
