    Is your Slim in poor condition? Does the Super Slim have more HDD space? If so, you may as well do it.

    Aside from what dj said, if you go ahead and do it don't forget to back everything you care for up (be it with a USB or PS+'s cloud) and to deactivate your account, as well as deleting any important details.

    Is this a chain store or a brick and mortar? If this deal is in my area I'd do it. My 120 GB PS3 just doesn't do it for me anymore and I don't want to attempt to change the hard drive myself.
    To answer your question though, yes make the trade. Just remember to do what the others said and back up the stuff you want to hold on to.

    How old is your current console? Is the super-slim brand new?

    If your console is 3-4 years old, and the one you're exchanging for is brand new, then I'd do it.

    same with faust, whats the stats of your slim vs the super slim whats the HDD space honestly I think the slim is better then the super slim cause they went cheap on the ss so weigh your options on it

    On the topic of changing the HDD...it's a single screw, so no real way to mess it up unless you deliberately try.

    i totally agree 100% it took me 10 min tops and the only time consuming part of that is downloading all the data to/from the temp storage device
    ps4 is by far much easier to upgrade the HDD

    Ive had my slim for 4 years (120gb) and it recently started to shut off due to overheating(?) so i bought a 500gb super slim (last of us bundle) on June 2nd
    the super slim doesnt work anymore (keeps freezing and its unplayable) so i had to go back to the slim

    I wouldnt recommend the SSlim to ANYONE
