This is pretty sweet actually. I like the whole idea behind the new thin design. Lower power, lower price, smaller size... everything was enhanced. Screw PS2 compatibility... GET A PS2!

Why do people still play PS2 games? Maybe I am in the minority but when the PS3 came out I started playing PS3 games. The PS2 hasn't seen the light of day in almost two years and I have no desire to bust out any old games to play.

Bringing out a new generation would be a great time for them to bust out a new GPU also, instead of the pathetic excuse they have in the last 2 generations.

And yes, I still occasionally play PS2 games.

Now is the time to buy. Sony should have done this two years ago.

Let the console wars (re-)start! No way Nintendo will just sit by and watch, nor will Microsoft. Again, the consumers win! Car companies take note, this is how the game should be played! Give us better, cleaner and cheaper and we'll buy your cars. Anyway I digress.

I told my friend about this same thing with the new design and he says, "Awww man, that blows... I liked the fact the original was backwards compatible EVEN THOUGH I DONT USE IT!" I was like dude, it's people like you that screw everything up.

If they would've added a few GB's of RAM, and a new GPU, keeping almost everyother component. They would've had a console that could walk over everything

Hardware-wise, maybe true. That doesn't help the fact that companies still have to put in 10 times more effort to make their games work with the cell processor.

Why do people still complain about PS2 backwards compatibility but never Xbox? Overall the PS3 has had more b/c than Xbox 360 has ever had, and now that the PS3 software library has roughly equaled the 360's as far as multi plats go, and surpassed it as far as exclusives go, people still want to play PS2 games? The PS2 has been around for 9 years... if you still don't have one it's your own fault.

I think the release pictures are wrong, because I just saw an overview video and the depth is almost the same.

[citation][nom]Sushi Warrior[/nom]I still can't understand why they made it deeper, why make a "slim" console that's bigger in one dimension? It's not small enough.[/citation]

That would be making a new console, not just a process upgrade.

Because the Xbox has only ever stepped up compatibility. You can even buy and download some Xbox 1 games now. The PS3 has gradually stopped having any.

Because the PS2 actually had games worth playing.

I still like my first gen PS3 better, due to the feature like having 4 usb ports, data ports, backwards capability, Linux installation, upgradable hdd, and I think it looks better. But yes it runs hot as hell, hotter then my Pc fully loaded, and its loud. Maybe in time, once the slim comes out and the price drops, I'll have enough confidence to mod my Ps3 into a water-cooled and thermostat on the system.

You can still upgrade the hdd on the ps3 slim.

I hope everyone realized I was saying that the Xbox had no games and not the usual "LOL PS3 SUX", but probably not since I didn't make it too clear.
