The super slim is cheaper to manufacture, yes, but the quality of the product could not be defined as cheap. It works just as well as any other PS3. Just get the newer one.

Personally I'd go with the refurbished Slim. It is a bit higher quality, and the slot drive is way better than the sliding tray in the Super Slim. And I don't know if it's the one you're looking at, but the basic model Super Slim only has 12gb of storage, which is practically worthless and would be taken up by GTAV's mandatory install.

The GTA V bundle has a 500 gig HD, more than enough for your needs. Some stores still have the Uncharted 3 bundle for 50 bucks cheaper. It has a 250 gig HD and one year playstation plus.

Get this one unless you REALLY want to play GTA V. I say this only because I have heard reports from here and other sites that the 500GB Hitachi hard drive has had some problems. I have the mentioned bundle(as shown below in my sig) and have had no problems. If you save $50 on this bundle, the savings pays for a new GTA V game.
