    New PS3 slim console question.

    So I know the new 12GB super slims are top loaders but are all the new slims(160gb,250gb and 500gb) also top loaders?
    Just wondered cos my old(18 months old) 160gb slim is on its way out and I was searching online for a worthy replacement and I saw an image for a 5oogb slim for 329 with 2 games and from the image it looks like a top loader and console looks really small/thin.

    The top loader mechanism is cheap and nasty.

    Keep in mind you can bang up to a 1TB HDD into the Slim and they're dead easy and relatively cheap to repair. Consider going down that path before buying a SuperSlim.

    Nice.
    Are they ok to stand on their sides with them being top loaders or should you lie them flat?

    Im sure ive heard somewhere that they are much more reliable if you don't have them on the side so Ive always kept mine flat. Ive had no issues at all with my slim so its staying down flat.
