PlayStation 3 Slim (2012)


More Info Sony announces a slimmer PlayStation 3, 250GB bundle launches September 25th for $269 Sony PlayStation 3 (2012) up close and personal (eyes-on) Sony explains missing PlayStation 3 price drop on old models, EU exclusivity of Flash memory...

Half the weight of the original PS3 ; Extremely quiet

More expensive than previous model ; Top-loading disc tray ; Glossy exterior attracts dust, fingerprints

The newest PlayStation 3 is a step down from its predecessor, with a higher price, illogically placed disc tray and a glossy, fingerprint-prone finish.

Review: Sony Playstation 3 Slim


The PS3 slim cuts its price, its heft, and even its size. But its abilities? Still wicked strong.

Bangin’ new compact body houses all the power of the original. A beefier 120-GB hard drive is still a breeze to swap out. Overall, runs quieter than previous PS3 iterations. Hello extra C-note! A great value, especially if you’re still sans a Blu-ray...

Like a waifish model, the Slim is too wobbly to stand on its ends: Sony requires you to purchase a plastic stand (if you want to balance the rig upright.). Sorry Captain Linux, no more support for alternate operating systems. It’s no 360 turbine, but...

Sony PlayStation 3 120GB (PS3 Slim)


To the casual observer, there's nothing particularly slim about the new Sony PlayStation 3's ($299.99 direct) sleek black housing-it's only when you compare it with its nearly three-year-old counterpart, the previous-gen PS3, that you see how much...

New compact and energy-efficient design. Terrific gaming performance. Integrated high-quality Blu-ray player. Hard drive is easily accessible for upgrades. Built-in Wi-Fi, Bluetooth. Support for HDMI CEC and DLNA

No memory card slots. Lacks support for Netflix streaming. Dedicated Blu-ray remote is not included

A long-overdue price drop, a hard-drive bump, and a compelling physical redesign make the Sony PlayStation 3 more desirable than ever.

PlayStation 3 Slim review


Even before Sony's big unveil earlier this month at Cologne GamesCom, it felt like we already knew the PlayStation 3 Slim quite intimately. A leak from back in May gave us a glimpse of every angle of the hardware's exterior, and even the final retail...

Smaller, lighter, and quieter ; More energy efficient ; Matte finish

Blu-ray playback a tad slower ; No support for OtherOS ; No PS2 legacy support

Best video game console


Reviewers say the Sony PlayStation 3 Slim is the best gaming console available, especially for those who want a console that can do more than play games. It packs a ton of features into a slim, matte-finish design, including HDMI output,...

Excellent Blu-ray Disc player, quieter and more efficient than previous PS3s, wi-Fi, good graphics

Weak online gaming network, no backward compatibility for PS2 games, no more Linux support

Sony PS3 Slim


Would you buy a slimmer version of the PS3? Sony hopes your answer will be yes. Today we're going to take a look at this slimmed-down brother to the popular gaming console and see if it's lost any power along with its weight and size.

Besides the gaming features, you can also look forward to Blu-ray capabilities and built-in Wi-Fi. Although you won?t get to be nostalgic and play your old PS2 games on this new edition of the PS3, you can still look forward to an all-around great...

PS3 Slim review


Sony has desperately needed a price cut for the PS3, which it now has received, among other things. The PS3 Slim — technically it's just called a PlayStation 3 — is about a third lighter and smaller than the previous console. The Cell CPU in the new...

PlayStation 3 Slim Review: The Same For Less


The single largest roadblock that prevents most people from picking up a PlayStation 3 is the price. Sony's just taken that roadblock and shrunk it. You're now $100 more likely to buy a PlayStation 3.

Dolby TrueHD and DTS-HD audio, which only matters if you're an audiophile with a modern sound system. You also get a new matte finish, which makes the console look less "premium", but eliminates the crazy fingerprint and dust problem the original had....

Sony 120 GB Playstation 3 Slim Review


Since its inception, Sony's Playstation 3 quickly ascended the ranks as a market leader - just not in the demographic that the electronics giant would've probably preferred. Though it's become well respected in the gaming sector, its prowess lies in...

Sony PS3 Slim


Yeah, we reviewed it when it was announced, but now we're arguing over its value. Maybe you can weigh in and settle the score.

Sony dropped a game-industry bombshell at gamescon in Germany last August when the company revealed the latest PLAYSTATION 3 model, the Slim. The PS3 Slim is lighter, consumes less energy and is cheaper. The PS3 Slim didn't only usher in a new model in...
