The PS3 Slim gets slimmer and slicker!

The redesigned new smaller, lighter PlayStation 3 packs all the gaming fun you’d expect from PlayStation but in a brand new case!

By redesigning the internal design architecture and removing the disc-fed tray for a sliding top-loading disk cover, the PS3 Super Slim is reduced in size by up to 25% compared to the current Slim PS3.

Packing 12GB of internal Flash Memory, you'll have plenty of space to save games so you can continue where you left off! But if you find space getting tight, then you can always upgrade the Hard Drive size later on.

You’ll still be able to play all your favourite PlayStation 3 titles such as Uncharted 3 Drakes Deception, God of War 3 and Gran Turismo 5, not to mention some of the upcoming titles like Assassins Creed III, Need for Speed Most Wanted and PlayStation All Star Battle Royale.

The PS3 Slim 12GB is more than a games console; it’s a home entertainment system that allows you to play Blu-Ray Discs, DVD’s, Music CD’s and watch TV through the BBC, ITV and Channel 4 iPlayers*.

The sleek new look will go with any household set up and thanks to the PS3 Slim stand (sold separately) you can lay the console down or have it stood up, depending on the space you have!

Included in the box you’ll find:

PS3 Slim 12GB Console
Wireless Dualshock 3 Controller
AC power cord
AV cable
USB cable

Been this price before, but went rather cold.

It did, it's all random At £10 more it went very hot as well. lol

I'm not worried about temp though, hot/cold whatever.......as long as it benefits someone then that's all that matters.

How does 12GB of storage work in a PS3? Most games want to install between 1-3GB of data, without taking into account the huge updates as well.

Whatever you do don't buy gt5!

Not 100% sure mate, but i think you need to wipe a drive before a new ps3 accepts it. As i say not 100% mind.

no you cant put your old hardrives in, you can have a usb hardrive. but it has to be formatted to FAT32, you can't have files large than 4gig and cant install games or save to it. so if you intend to get PS+ this model is next to useless.

I don't see why your old hdd won't fit unless they've designed the 12gb model differently to the 500gb model

You CAN put your old hard drive in.

BUT, you need to buy the hard drive caddy separately as it doesn't seem to be included in the new Slim 12gb model and I believe they are still very difficult to get hold of.

Also, if/when you connect your old hard drive, it will be fully formatted by the PS3 itself and ALL data WILL be lost.This is unavoidable and there's no way around it.

I was looking into this just the other day for a friend who was about to buy one and found a few YouTube videos confirming it.

what a crap deal

12gb is not nearly enough.

i have a 80gb and im having trouble managing my data.

COLD COLD COLD

Still can't believe these 12GB consoles get hot, they are not a "deal".

Presumably the more heat the more people that helps and the more money the site makes thought right ?

Err...no!

Forgive my probable ignorance, but what's the point of a 12GB PS3?

Sounds completely unusable.

So you CAN put an old hard drive from my old fat ps3 in then? Im a little confused!

Roughly 6.8 pence a day actually.

Come on HUKDers, sort yourselves out. You know this is cold! I don't think you can change the hard drive in this because the 12GB is an SSD drive.

Which is 6.8 pence a day more than the PS3.

You can

COLD COLD COLD. Complete waste of money. For another 30 quid you can but one with a 160gb HDD installed. If you buy this 12GB you will not have enough storage capacity to play many games. So you will need to upgrade it. People may argue that they are great media players. Those people should check out Cinavia............

but you can put an SSD drive in a PS3 anyway and it is faster for most games etc. The amount of people giving miss information on here is incredible, if you don't know don't say anything because you are putting people off or giving them incorrect info.

no one buy this at the moment, I can guarantee a price drop by the end of the year.

crap.... 12gb

You can buy a caddy, which seem to be currently sold out, and then you can insert a 9.5mm 2.5 inch hard drive.

For added amusement, the 12gb SSD is disabled when you install a larger hard drive.

Just put your own 500gb hard drive in?

Not available in the UK
$99 + (24 x $15) = $459
Currently a 4GB Xbox 360 with Kinect is $249.96 on Amazon.com
Not quite as great a deal as it sounds... oO

Why have Sony brought out a 12GB PS3 it is absolutely pointless ! no space for games like Fifa, COD and MOH

Eh? You've lost me. I'm talking about 12 month XBL for £24 in the UK.

The 12gb has a flash 12gb chip and an empty internal hard drive bay. This bay accepts 2.5" hard drives but you need to buy a mounting bracket for £8. A 1tb hard drive runs about £60 at the moment so £150 (this ps3) + £8 (bracket) + £60 (hd) means £218 for a 1tb super slim. That's less than most places sell the 500gb version

To clarify:

YES you CAN put your old (or any other) 2.5inch SATA hard drive in the new 12gb PS3.
BUT you NEED to buy the difficult to get hold of hard drive caddy.

Excuse me, I said "I think". It's not a straight swap - you need the caddy. This 12gb is a crap deal. Why would anyone pay £150 for this? £15-20 more and you can get the 160gb, which is a lot sturdier and very reliable. People that are promoting this are crazy, this is an awful deal. Sony are milking the stupid.

The original post by ewwaxo was referring to the "deal" in the US for $99 Xbox 360 with a 24 month Live subscription for $15 a month.
Read the full quote....
I think you misread the original posts, hence why you wrote "6.8 pence a day"

As an entry level system for someone who wants to use the media facilities and play the occasional game it might not be too bad, but it needs to be more sensibly priced. Plenty of us have got 160, 250 or even 320gb slim PS3s for this price give or take a tenner, so I can't see how this is a good buy at all.

I thought this was a typo by the original deal finder, I thought he must mean the 120GB PS3 version

but 'effing hell, the title is correct and this is a PS3 with only 12GB storage. What an absolute joke. Disgusting Sony.
