I say go for the slim. Bigger drive and sexier than the fat ps3 (just my opinion).
If it has problems within the first year you're covered. Get an extended warranty to cover your arse.
There's vents on the front and back of the slim. I don't see overheating to be a problem.
They said it everywhere I read the news . They made it so it overheats less . Buy the Slim . Its the good choice .
YOU SOUND MORE LIKE A PUSHY CAR SALES MAN.
LISTEN THE BIG BANG Q: IS WHICH IS BETTER
NOT IN MY OPINION BUT IN LOGIC. THE PLAYSTATION 3 IS BIGGER BETTER BUILT STURDY DOSE NOT NEED A STAND (PLUS I DROPPED MINE FROM 3 FEET AND IT HAD ABSOLUTELY NO DAMAGE TO IT BTW ITS A B/C LAUNCH WITH A 160 GIG VS. PS3 NOW THE PS3 HAS A CHEAP LOOK AND STILL AS HEAVY! AND THE HORRID THING THEY CALL A COVER IS A CHEAP PLASTIC THAT LOOKS LIKE CHUCK NORRIS CAN BRAKE IT JUST BY LOOKING @ IT!
NEED MORE HELP ASK YOUR GF WHAT'S BETTER SLIM OR FAT!! THEN ONLY THEN YOU WILL FINED INNER PEACE!
Thinking the slim is going to overheat ... more than the phat - is not thinking it thru very well.
Sony may be arrogant (is) but they are not stupid. Sony knows all about heat. Thinking Sony is was careless and just slapped the slim together ...... is just silly.
They tested the heck out of it .........
Ay man if you have the ps3 original already then just stay with that because you ve got kinda of an advantage with the memory card slot the sd slot and the complact flash slot. the slim dont have that. also the slim dont have 4 usb ports. those four can come in handy at times. also the fat ps3 got the looks the slim just looks like any other kind of game system and actually it look sort of like the ps2 slim. the ps3 fat looks is bold and stand out in your enertainmeant set. also thiers the switch at the back of the ps3 that not on the slim so you can fully turn off your ps3 unlike the slim where you have to unplugg it for it to be fully turned off. also the power and eject botton is touch on the fat but its actual bottons on the slim. also backward compartibility is also a big thing where the fat can play them (some of them) and the slim cannot play them (period). also it may not really matter but the ps3 fat can run OS which is pretty cool to me.
But it all come down to whats your taste.
