    Sorry Rube-star, but sometimes when you buy expensive electronics, you want them to look nice. I personally loved the fatty, but had to get a slim. I jazzed it up a bit because it was cheaply made IMO. If they do have plans of pumping out another, the least they could do is go back to having 4 USB ports.

    Oh, and this model looks horrid.

    Comparing a car to a video game system is not exactly a balanced comparison. Cars also have a bit more purpose than video game systems. If somebody's reasoning for buying an Xbox 360 over a PlayStation 3 is because of what it looks like - they seriously have their priorities mixed up. The NES was never the prettiest system on the market, and the Gamecube might have been the ugliest all-around system in a while. A video game system's aesthetics aren't even comparable to something like a cellphone, in which a phone could be used as an accessory or accessorized to a person's desired look. The closest thing to a video game system that I could see being adequate would be another electronic device, such as a toaster, DVD player, or electric toothbrush - all of which the visual appeal should fall somewhere below on the list of cost, effectiveness, and features.

    I don't know if anybody has ever got further on a date because they were sporting a newer model of a gaming system, or particular skin on the model. I do know many people who's car's visual state (or model) has been a bit of help in getting a girl to say yes to a date, or allow them to get further on the "base track" because of it.

    I think the FAT was the prettiest of all PS3s released. But this isn't ugly tho...I'm waiting for official revealing But the point is, I can't really see the Blu-Ray doors/opening, I hope it'll be done like in the case of PS2. Hope they won't tell "yes, it costs 150$, but you have to pay for games online".

    Soooooo why did so many people say one of the HD sizes was going to be 16gb? Like 3 or 4 people kept saying 16gb. Should't the lowest HD size be 160gb?

    Maybe they're trying to market it similar to the arcade versions of 360's? Make the price lower but cut out a lot of storage. 16gb would probably be fine for your casual gamers who don't venture outside of COD and FIFA titles.

    It is the best looking Ps3 I have seen but if something happened to my slim and this is going to be as cheap as they say then I would snatch one up.

    I have also thought about getting a second ps3 anyway so this could be my answer.

    LOL! Couldn't agree more. It kind of looks like a hybrid of the 'fat' and 'slim' models. By that I mean shiny top from the fat, thin like the Slim.

    Did anyone see the letter on the portuguese website that was (I think incorrectly) Linked to in the OP? HERE it is. Seems weird to have 3 sizes... A 16, 250 and 500GB model? 16 seems a bit too little. I have a 500GB HDD in my PS3 because I have countless TV episodes on there to watch and download almost every game I play, and I still have about 200GB free, so that one seems excessive. To me anyway.

    It's alright, I don't see why we need another slim.. slim. I think the current slims are perfect.. I hope they don't get overruled & tossed aside like the old phat boys.

    Okay so maybe comparing it to a car wasn't the best example. However, look at something like the Nintendo DS or 3DS. They have several different colors which sell differently according to ones preference. A lot of girls for example like the purple and red models while guys typically like the back and blue models.

    If Sony had of made another model with the exact same features, I doubt that one would even sell very good. I know if my slim breaks, I'll be looking for another one rather than going out and getting the one shown in this thread as I hate how it looks. That;s the same reason as to why I bought a black Wii instead of a white one and also why when I ordered my Aperion Audio speakers, I went with the black gloss finish instead of cherry wood. It matches my TV, Playstation, and receiver. Cosmetic appeal is a factor which I think Sony may have forgotten about in this new model or they didn't do a very good job of achieving it at least.

    Im already happy with the current slim version, having a more slimmer version of the PS3 is not that great anymore.

    Looks interesting. I remember when they released the "modified slim" version of the PS2 a year or so after the PS3 came out. I had the original fatty (80gb w/backward compat) until the lens on it burnt out (gave it to a friend). My current PS3 is the 120gb slim, which I love to death even though it is uglier than the fatty. I hope they didn't dumbed down the "slimmer", like they did when they first released the slims (probably so, but one can hope).

    Looks like you need my help--Again...
