    just the same really, its got a BBC iplayer tab in the main menu now but it just takes you to the iplayer website which is a bit disappoints as its hard to navigate, was hoping for a ps3 specific menu system with possible download feature....

    Also, the menu now sparkles...

    The top is obv now not shiny so it doesnt attract dust but the rest , like around the disc tray area and the sides are still made of the same stuff, buttond now instead of touch thingies, red and green lights are tiny on this one which is better, cant turn it off at the back, standby forever !

    Yes im fully aware that its the new firmware that gives you that people ! the only difference when turning it on is that is has the PS3 symbol off the top of the slims at the start instead of the playstation 3 in spiderman text

    They actually dont feel bad they arent 'deep' just a little click and they feel quite good quality

    I highly doubt youll get better frame rates, in fact im prepared to bet with my life that you wont,

    I think it's ugly and it doesn't acctually look much thinner (I haven't bothered to check comparison pictures)

    i'm happy with my "fat" ps3 anyway

    i only got it because i hate the look of the fat and the shiny horribleness, I actually quite like this one, its considerably slimmer but not much smaller in size, still very heavy , its silent as well

    I agree; from the pic, it doesnt really look much slimmer and actually looks like it has a bigger footprint.

    Neither one is that good-looking, but the piano black finish looks horrible with all the dust and smudges it shows off.

    Yes I have thanks - I've also heard of a cleaner, but it tends to pick up dust and smudges when I have neither at hand.:roll:

    Agreed with this.

    The phat one would look nice in matte.

    The slim just looks ugly.

    You don't have one of those Samsung LCDs do you? I ended up returning one because the finish was horrendous for showing up dust and smudges and for reflecting a little it too much light when trying to watch films.

    Ghastly things:w00t:

    just go to your kitchen, pick one up, rinse it out, take it to the ps3 quick wipe, back to the kitchen, put it down and hey presto your ps3 is clean in under 1 minute, hiw hard is that to do every few days:?

    Sounds unnecessary when I can get a matte black replacement thanks.

    We´re gettin ours tomorrow
    Kinda excited...which is a little weird considering we had a phat one for a year but sold it last xmas cuz of the lack of (exclusive) games lol
    Glad there are more good exclusives now than back then.
    Can´t wait for Uncharted 2 (loved the first one) and the new Ratchet & Clank (same as with Uncharted)

    that's like saying lcd or plasma screen tv looks ugly cos it attracts the dust if it has a shiny outside, silly argument, just run a duster over it everyday only takes a few seconds to do

    That's what some people said about the 'Gherkin'.

    Picked mine up this morning, cannot wait to have a play on it... been ps3less since i traded mine in Friday morning, probably missed it a bit too much if i'm honest..


    As for those saying the slim looks ugly, it seems virtually everyone that has got one has been amazed how much better they look in the flesh compared to photos...

    Phat - Breadbin.
    Slim - Sandwich Toaster.

    Best post yet, I wish I was smart enough to swap a PS3 for a PS3.

    I think you missed the point - they've swapped it for a smaller model. I'll be doing the same.
