Cheaper Sony PlayStation 3 Slim announced

The original PlayStation 3 was way too expensive when it first came out. That’s probably one of the main reasons why it lagged behind the Nintendo Wii and the XBox 360 in sales. So Sony has come up with a newer but cheaper one — the PlayStation 3 Slim.

My guess is that it won’t be officially released in the Philippines (just like its predecessor) but that should not stop anybody from getting one in the grey market when it comes out this September.

The new PlayStation 3 Slim is 36% lighter and 33% smaller and best of all it will retail for just $299. Comes with a 120GB HDD and WiFi. Will be out worldwide on September 1.

In the Philippines, the success of a gaming console highly depends on how much *cough* *hacked* titles are available in the market. Most of the consoles are already unlocked when you buy them in stores (GreenHills).

    ung new ps3 slim walang card reader, at wala ng bckward comptibility, pero if you still have your ps2 why use ps3??besides gas gas lng sa lens un pg gnmit mo ps2 games sa ps3 phat. ps3 slim costs around 16k – 18k bundled p, besides, the slim eats lower electricity so its energy saving, tska dual lens n lhat ng models ngyn ng ps3, one for blu-ray games and one for blue ray dvd movies, saves the lens life. problm lng tlga is the cost of the games, but then again if youre resourceful enough you can get better games at the right price if you just know where to look. at first i prefer the phat ones coz i know everytime, since time ng ps1, pag lumiliit ung unit laging may tintnggal n spec o feature, good thing sa ps2 you no longer need a video adapter o video card that you have to attach on its back just like in the phat one, sa ps2 slim you just have to push the power button 3 times to activate the dvd movie mode but it has its limitations though, the lens. Xbox 360 i think is a thing of the past, its cooler coz of the availability of the games and all that stuff, but it has its own contagious disease that literally can strip your pockets and wallets, lhat ng kilala kong may xbox 360 ung mga unit nila nkatiwangwang nln or nbenta n coz of its short life span, besides, the disease im talking about is the 3 red lights or the 3rl sickness ng mga xbox360 units, if youre gonna have them fixed it’ll cost 7k-10k, so why not buy a new unit instead,or better yet buy a better console db? i have a ps2 and i neither have ps3 nor xbox360 and im thinking of which one to buy that’s why i researched first.

    My daughter working in Dubai,gave her youngest brother a PS3 which she bought there in Dubai, after a year of playing it can read but don’t play anymore, I ask Sony Service Station but said they are not authorized to check it,much more to repair it.

    Question – were do I go from here, is there any repair station I can go?

    Thank you,
