    PS3 console

    is there any difference in the slim console and the normal ones or is it just the size, im just about to order a ps3 for my nephew and just wondered if there was much difference other than size.

    hard drive space, the slim has HDMI-CEC (control with a remote from something else(TV)) but the fat one has the option to install linux,

    I heard the slim one uses less power than the fhat one

    Slim uses less power (under 100w compared to 200w) and it is quieter

    Yes as said above regarding power. Although the original ps3 has far more sex appeal to it.

    And the new one has better sound...But the phat looks cooler!

    It doesnt have better sound. Just has the ability to bitstream audio.

    People who have the fat ones generally get laughed at.

    This.:thumbsup:

    yeah it can bitstream HD auido over HDMI to a suitable HD amp, most people won't notice this though, this could be very good or very bad, good if you have a decent amp and bad if you dont, it basically leaves the amp to decode it rather than the ps3....

    Yes, of my experience of laughing at people who own the phatty, and you can now be safe in the knowledge that someone HAS laughed at you

    Whys hould you laugh at people with the phat, they have probably been an owner longer than you, paid more than you and(imo) therefore the one who should be laughing at you!

    I've got a fat one. Whats so funny about that?

    Not really, because I had three phatties but got rid of them when they became the black sheep of the playstation family.
