The slim, is an engineering beauty, so well designed. All that tech in something the same size as a DVD player.

Those Japs are good.

I have a fat, never any problems with it. Slim is the natural choice though.

i have both. slim is faster but phat looks better. they shouldn't have changed the look on the ps3. natural choice would be the slim though. my slim has the custom firmware installed. when I see people's ps3 phat installing games they are a lot slower than my slim. they don't ylod that much either so ps3 slim is the one to get imo

Only reason to buy a phat is for PS2 BC and 4 USB.
Or to pretend you're not a noob

It's been tested a thousands times that slim and fat don't differ in terms of games loading time . Actually with the same frimeware fat was a tad faster. Don't know why, but really who cares about 1 or 2 more seconds ^^.

Get the slim BTW . Be fashionable, and up to date

Slim. Less to worry about in terms of reliability.

I more or less I've kept my launch for nostalgia and PS2 (once it gets reballed).

Is it better to get an xbox360 or a PS3? I like the features of the PS3 but there is a lot of cool content only available on xbox live that I want to play. I can't decide which to get.
