YOUR RECOMMENDATION - Buying a new PS3

13 replies 183 views Edited Jul 14, 2013

So... after 5 years, finally mi 60gb kicked the bucket.

 

What PS3 do you recommend me to buy?

 

I'm looking forward a PS3 Slim... since I've heard that people dislikes the small door thing for the discs on the Super Slim one...

 

What do you guys recommend? 160 gb is enough? 

 

Sigh... will have to buy a PS2 as well Smiley Sad

The SuperSlim 250 Gb inFamous Collection Limited Edition bundle is a nice deal, if you can find the now Year-old Console bundle at retail, that is. It comes with Uncharted 1 and 2, inFamous 1 and 2 as well as some DLC Codes for the second games of those franchises. It Also comes bundled with a PS Plus 3-month code, but from experience, those have expired by now. 

When in doubt ask yourself;" What would Daryl Dixon do?"

I've owned my unit for all of two weeks and it hasn't given me any issues yet (aside from an audio problem caused by a substandard HDMI cable, but that was an external problem, not one with the PS3 itself) The Sliding door is a neat little thing whose saving grace is the fact that it isn't mechanically driven (It's Spring-driven) so it WON'T fail like a Disc Tray would. 

I would much prefer this over the FAT unit's Mechanically driven Disc-slot which I've heard can be accidentally loaded with more discs than should be possible.

The Super slim isn't a bad option. It runs cooler and quieter than the other two models. It does get somewhat loud during loading times, but after that you can barely hear anything, It's also extremely light so it's easy to carry around.

I reccommend, since it appears you have some PS2 games you want to play, buying a used 80 or 60 gig that is backwards compatable.

 

The slim will NOT play PS2 games.   

 

160gb is 250% more than the 60 gig you have now.
