PS3 Super Slim Review


The PS3 Super Slim is the third major redesign amongst many generations of minor hardware updates to the PlayStation 3 console. You may even call it the seven year old itch of sorts, but then, you'd be wrong because that would involve replacing the...

Irrespective of it chronology, the Super Slim offers nothing over the much better looking Slim console. The bottomline: if you are in the market for a new PS3, or just upgrading from the first gen fat PS3, opting for the PS3 Slim 320GB Medieval Moves...

Sony's older PS3 is still a contender


Sony unleashed the PlayStation 3 to the world in 2006. Over the next few years we would see the console go through a number of design changes, although hardware features have largely remained the same. It started with the original PS3 (now referred to...

The PlayStation 3 still offers palpable gaming and entertainment value, with a nearly unrivaled library of games, strong array of streaming services (including Netflix, Amazon, Hulu Plus, HBO Go and Vudu) and the fact that it doubles as a great...

Sliding-top disc door feels downmarket; no IR port limits universal remote compatibility; PS4 will pick up momentum in 2015 and beyond as it gains more exclusive next-gen titles

While it will begin to cede its position to the PS4 in 2015, the PlayStation 3 still delivers impressively strong value for gaming and video entertainment.

PS3 Superslim Review


The new PlayStation 3 Superslim sports a retro look. The matte black finish on the grooved panel running across the top of the console reminds us of the Atari 2600, while the top loading disc drive brings back memories of playing Sonic CD on the...

The performance of the Superslim is as good as any PS3 model and there's a mass of games to now choose from ; Smaller size means you'll have more space in your TV cabinet ; Large 500GB harddrive is perfect for the mass of games, movies and music that...

Top loading tray is flimsy and feels clunky to use ; It's more expensive than the Slim, yet feels like you're getting less value for money

The hardware is as good as ever and the software library is now comprehensive, but when you can pick up a Slim for less than this new model, it's hard to recommend it just for a few styling changes.

Sony PS3 Super Slim


Say hello to the Sony PS3 Super Slim, Sony's third generation model of its hit PS3 games console. There's absolutely no change to the software: it's still a games machine with smart TV skills and a 3D Blu-ray drive. But this time round it's smaller and...

While we love the Sony PS3, and how it’s evolved to become so much more than a games machine, we’re not too impressed with this model, which is cheaper without Sony really passing on the savings.
