That is sexy!
Nice.
This thing just came out - and they are already doing limited editions? Oh well. Love capitalism...
Yay, nearly 250notes for a console with a life less than 12months.
looks tacky imo

Well, they only just stopped making the PS2, so even if the PS4 is released they will still continue to support the PS3.
I'm not sure about the 360 though, Microsoft dropped the original Xbox like a bad habit

Maybe so, but try trading one in when ps4 comes out. Love to see how much Cex will give you for them. They are to be announced in next 6months, possibly released, shirley people would be better buying a preowned if they never had a ps3 and take a lesser hit on it come next gen.

I doubt you will see the new PlayStation this year, they may announce it but it's still going to be at least 12 months from launch especially since Sony have a reputation for shafting Europe on console launches.
And nobody is forcing you to buy this expensive limited edition one. I got my regular black super slim for just over £100 before Christmas.
too bad the white hasn't been released in the UK

are you nostradamus?
Personally I will hold back on console buying. Esp a new one over £100. Its true you won't see a new console this year. Earliest you are looking at is next summer. But like I said if you really want one buy second hand. Because when the new console comes no new games will be developed for ps3 platform. But if you waitied and brought the ps4 you can keep that for a decade. My advice buy a cheap second hand PS3 and save your dough for ps4. Not hot from me but not cold

I don't buy any news. Is there a different optical unit that can provide better quality for games?NO. Are the TV's over FULL HD and cheap enough that people will buy it?NO. Are there any games unplayable on the PS3?NO. If there will be a PS4 it will have the same playback capabilities as PS3 and games will look the same.
PS1-CD
PS2-DVD
PS3-BLURAY
PS4-BLURAY?I don't think so.

In my opinion a PS4 is out of the question.

EDIT: Not to mention every PS3 game except the exclusive ones have worse graphics due to the limitation of a DVD(Xbox) I'd say an xbox is more likely to appear on the market sooner than a PS4.
Just imagine every PS3 game that you playusing a full ~40gb blu ray...

Wasn't that because Microsoft were still losing money for every console sold?

Not the case with the 360.
I expect them to stop updating the system after a short while, but not abandon it completely.

Not sure where to begin...

I take it you have not seen any recent PC games in action?
"Are there any games unplayable on the PS3?NO."
Well that's because they're downgraded to run on the system.

The current gen console cannot even do action packed 720p games at a good framerate. Many are running below that resolution.
So there is one hardware limitation that can easily be improved upon.

Also, a new console generation has nothing to do with a format coming out. It's just that Sony push things that way. It's how they get that new technology into homes quicker.

Can you honestly say that 5 year old hardware is still able to keep up with current high end game technology?
my ps3 was shockin, yellow light ov death after 14 months n hardly played on it (hour or two a week)..would never buy another. xbox is where its at.

Same I've had 4 of my PS3 60gb break got a yellow light or blu-ray stopped working I won't be buying another as I've had a 360 from 2008 and never had any problems

Except that isn't true, is it?
Unless you have some fascination with the colour blue, I see no reason to spend 236 bones on this.

The Playstation Slim is almost 100 bones cheaper and is much better quality than the Super Slim.
And to be fair, the Playstation's failure rate is well within the industry standard of 3-5% for consumer electronics. The Xbox 360's failure rate is around 30-50%.

My 360 didn't break but it was ridiculously loud so I just stopped playing it. Whenever I see an Xbox 360, I just do a 360 and walk the other way.

at this price you can get the superior (in build quality and design) slim model instead,super slim is the budget cheap model they made so they can eventually sell it for £99.

It's most likely, but if I was in charge of a release date, I'd release it Christmas 2013, PS2 sales were still very high after the PS3 release so selling PS3s while a PS4 is out is not a problem. Sony need to release this console before the Xbox, otherwise they will have the same problem all over again with PS3 vs 360.
I've owned 2 PS3's (60Gb and upgraded to slim 320gb), 6 friends have had them, 3 of which upgraded too. Out of 11 PS3's, none ever broke.

5 friends with 360's, and they're all on at least their 2nd after RROD's.
And it's funny how the Xbox fanbois have YLOD with their PS3s while like stated above the 360 had 10x fail rate than the PS3.

I've never had a console fail, all the way back to NES. I know of a friend who had 2 PS3s fail on him but he used to keep it on for weeks on end in a badly vented room

That is the only reason Sony have for leaving the gate first this time around. They were extremely arrogant with the ps3 and expected the industry to wait for them and Microsoft took massive advantage of that. Of the three consoles out at the moment though Sony have by far the most promising line up this year IMHO.
Vote hot if you are actually planing to buy PS3 when new consoles are just behind the door.
Yes, they will likely cost more £300 to £400 but at least you won't be using 6 years old hardware anymore.
It kinda reminds me of the 6 year old Apple laptop posted recently : hotukdeals.com/dea…e=6
