    and a price increase

    What does everyone reckon to the price of £250 which is being touted around? I was hoping it would be closer to £200.:|

    Will probably be more than £250.
    Perhaps as much as £270.

    £249.99 according to the bbc

    Two of the ugliest designs in the history of consoles.

    The new one is even deeper than the old one so if your console just fits in, this new one will stick out.

    yeah and 360 is soooo beautiful...

    i think microsoft are still trying to make a working 360 before they make a slim one.

    Supermod

    Slim or fat. Does it really matter?! Certainly isnt worth arguing over.

    They have also removed the ability to install linux on these ones.

    omg man its really true, the ps3 slim... the slim version looks really cheaply made.. they have to cut the cost somewhere. Think i will stick to my 80gb version considering there are no changes.

    i am sure the power consumption difference isn't gonna be massive in the long run.

    youd be suprised how much these things use tbh, the 60gb is the worst culprit and for co2
    have a look here, pretty interesting reading

    Anyone seen any price drops in the 80gb yet?

    Hmmm, no bc, no Linux option, no thank you Sony! Still at least it's ugly enough not to look out of place next to my 360.

    Some of the stupid arguments in this thread are just laughable. People who can't afford to buy a new slim PS3 so **** off it looks even though the original is no looker itself.

    Oh, but there's no Linux install option - really not a big deal for 99% of users.

    Fanboys:roll:

    They're all pretty legitimate arguments as far as I can see, and mostly made be PS3 owners by the looks of it, so hardly anti-Sony fanboys now are they.

    I know it's a pretty subjective thing, but most folks seem to think it is pretty ugly - but then so is the 360, I mean really who thought it was a good idea to stick the HDD on the outside.......

    Lack of Linux support, well I don't actually know a single PS3 owner who hasn't got Linux installed. Although I'm certain this isn't true across the board your 99% figure is way off the mark, I'd hire a new researcher if I were you - or did you just make up that figure?

    For me the real kicker is that Sony refuse to re-introduce backwards compatibility, despite PS2 hardware being cheap as chips and despite the PS3 being more than capable of software emulation without that anyway. The only reason that they refuse to do it is to keep selling PS2's, and frankly I have enough boxes under my TV without having multiple Playstation's. Plus I love the excuse they give for it, "most consumers that are purchasing the PS3 cite PS3 games as a primary reason" (from eurogamer.net/art…lim)
