Thinking of finally buying ps3...whats the best version of the system?/questions on system.

post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 
hello i have been putting off in buying a new console since release of ps3 where i was unhappy with a lot of things, mostly games where not that good and money at the time.

anyways i missed out on potentially the best version because i thought.... hey if this is this good i can probably buy it cheaper and better later...

boy was i wrong.


fast foward to today i feel every single new version of the ps3 keeps getting gutted and made from the cheapest materials they can scavenge around.

this new super slim version is the worst of all please correct me if i am wrong.
-besides being lighter it does not get any new features of any kind just a more gutted version of the already gutted slim version.
-a manual disk tray @.@ this thing looks like my old VHS.
-no included HDMI cables this is a sad joke lol.

what do you guys recommend? to me a new ps3 of the ugly slim looks like the best it at least has lower power consumption lower heat dispersion and also 45nm cpu? correct any of this if its wrong.

can any list pros and cons or link to place that compares version.(including internal parts or atleast upgrades in cpu/etc)

i wish i had bought the MGS4 bundle back a few years ago that oen had backwards compatibility with software ( why don't all new systems have this anyways),
it also had all 4 usb ports/linux option and the same 45 nm cpu.

now this version in like new or brand new impossible to find unless you want to pay 1k on ripoffebay.


P.S- why couldn't this years black friday be the slim ps3 and not the gigantic crap aka VHS ps3?

am i alone on the new super slim hate? I think this one looks extremely cheap made and ugly and a huge step backwards.
really why do people even care for the size of system which wasn't that exaggerated big to begin with? it usually sits in one spot almost 24/7 who really cares for the change in size?

I would just go with a older slim unless you're looking for BC in a fat one, The slims will be more power efficient as well.

And just a FYI, once you update the older ps3's The Linux support is removed on them as well.

bc is not worth it..if you wana play ps2 games buy a 30 dollar ps2..they look better on it anyway..but i love my gen 3 slim 320gb...i got the battlefield 3 vault on it...and it looks gangster! i bought the new one just because i have a great job and a wife that supports my gameing habit.so why not..il just put one of my others in my daughters room..and good luck finding a 3.55 firmare or older ps3..if you do .you will be paying for it!
