Sony PS3 slim review

 

The PS3 is dead, long live the PS4. Except the PS3 is so far from dead it's almost ridiculous. For one thing, there is a persistent rumour that when the PS4 launches, it will not be backwards compatible with PS3 games. That's not a hardship for most,...

Much more affordable, brilliant gaming, second-to-none video and media player

A bit loud, drive cover is a bit cheap and flimsy, still not quite "cheap

Ignore the fact that the PS4 is imminent, this is still a blinding good console and one that will serve you for years to come with second-hand games and even new releases. Without doubt, if you don't have a PS3, this is the time to buy, but do consider...

Sony PlayStation 3 Slim 120GB

 

How does Sony's new svelte PS3 measure up?

HDMI 1.3a, S/PDIF and standard PlayStation A/V connections on the rear still handle output to your TV and sound system, while we get Gigabit Ethernet and 802.11g Wi-Fi for connecting to your router and on to the Internet. On the front we're down to two...

Sony PlayStation 3 Slim review

 

The new PlayStation 3 (PS3) is an amazing piece of technology.

The Slim is an amazingly powerful media centre, game console and web client, with great format support - all in all, a superb buy.

Sony PlayStation 3 Slim review

 

The slim-line Sony PlayStation 3 Slim (120GB) bundles the top-notch features of the earlier PlayStation 3 into a smarter, sleeker package.

As Blu-ray players go, the original PS3 was competitively priced. With a slimmer profile, lower price and lower power consumption, the PlayStation 3 Slim (120GB) is arguably the one to beat. Factor in games, social networking features such as...

The Sony PS3 Slim's got more hard drive, for less money. Time to trade in your old PS3?

The price is right, and so is the size, hard drive and Blu-ray playback. Time for late adopters to buy a PS3

Sony PS3 Slim

 

Leaner and fitter for the fight, this is the best PS3 yet, and a decent alternative to a standalone BD player

As impressively flexible as ever, but now sleeker and quieter than before; more storage space than older models; now outputs bitstream HD audio

Still not quite the equal of a dedicated BD player

Sony PS3 Slim

 

A quiet and compact powerhouse of a console, hampered by a limited range of quality titles and no backward compatibility with PS2 games.

Has Sony redeemed the PS3 brand? Regardless of the previously stated drawbacks, and the triumph of image over substance, the fact is that the PS3 Slim costs half of what the original PS3 cost when it first launched. It is also smaller, quieter and...
