PS3 Slim brings a new logo brand to PlayStation. The old PS3 branding: PLAYSTATION, in uppercase will change to unify Sony's PlayStation consoles under the same look. A matte black effect finish was unexpected, though works well for practicality (not being a dust magnet).
Three years of PS3 and three major console changes. First was the 60GB PS3 with backwards compatibility on Play Station games. Then an 80GB and 120GB limited edition PS3 entered retailer departments last summer. And now a new chapter is about to start with the pre-ordering of PS3 Slim.
Many gamers are spectacle about buying a Slim for two mainly understandable reasons. The debate about whether it is worth existing PS3 gamers upgrading to stay credible in the kudos community and those undecided on PS3 Vs Xbox 360. A majority of gamers have sat tight waiting for the PS3 price to drop, to be rewarded recently with £30 being discounted from a console price this week. PS3 80GB: previous cheapest online price £279.99, current price £249.99. When talking about PS3 prices it is essential to include the gigabyte model to quote the correct console. Now the full name and gigabytes will serve to distinguish which console. Just this year 40GB PS3 prices entered clearance at only £199, spotted by GameStock.co.uk stock checking systems. Inevitably, those console prices didn't last long; even being in the midst of the UK officially announcing that the country was entering recession back in February 09.
One major advantage the PS3 Slim has over older PS3 is hinted in the new name, that's being 36% lighter in weight. PS3 80GB box weight was 7kg and bigger all round.
