    Default PS3 Slim + Price Drop

    IGN: GC 2009: PS3 Slim and Price Drop Announced

    So the PS3 slim is confirmed and the price will drop to $299 USD. Too bad the top of the slim version is not the glossy black of the regular PS3. Otherwise the price drop is very much needed and may entice me to buy a PS3 in the fall.

    FFXIII is also going to be coming out soon, so I'm guessing this is a very strategic move for Sony.

    I like the matte black better. I mean, if that played a part of my decision.

    ^ I agree on the matte black thing, shiny just means it'll always look smudgy and/or dusty imo.

    Backwards compatible though?? That'd be my main question. And it said it's basically the same.. so that means still blu-ray DVD compatible, etc?

    ^ Isn't the playstation really hurting sony's market? I do hope that they make a 4th. Is there any talk of them already starting on the next?

    I doubt it's backwards compatible. I know for sure it has a blue-ray player though, since the PS3 games themselves come on blue-ray discs. They couldn't go back to non-blue-ray at this point even if they wanted to.

    It will be a few years still until the next generation of consoles are released. The next hardware Sony and Microsoft are talking about releasing are both motion sensitive stuff to compete with the Wii. Both intend to release their new controls for the current systems. If new game systems were going to be released soon I'd think they'd bundle the motion control stuff with that. In other words it will be a few years still. (And then a couple years after that until the next gen of consoles actually get a decent library of games.)

    PS3 Slim is NOT backwards compatible. You also cannot install Linux on it. Other than that, it preserves all other functionality. I'd get one if I didn't hate the controller so much, and didn't have an xbox 360.
