  1. My Fat PS3 is still going strong after five+ years (*knocks on wood*), but I wouldn’t mind giving it the Old Yeller treatment and picking up this slimmer model.


  2. I really don’t see the point if they aren’t at least going to cut the price. In my oppinion, it’s not looking any better than the SLIM so what’s the point then?
