When it first launched a couple of years back, the Sony Playstation 3 offered unprecedented power and gaming performance. In a bid to keep it fresh, Sony launched a new, slimmer Playstation 3. The components are pretty similar, but read on to find if i...
Good The styling of the Sony PS3 Slim is a 100 per cent improvement on the original PS3. The original console may have been powerful, but it was also big and bloated, and looked out of place when sat alongside the latest slimline HD TVs. The slim Playstation 3 features a much thinner chassis, and also gets a smarter matt black finish. Gaming was always an issue for the original PS3, and this is anothe...
Bad The biggest drawback on the Sony PS3 Slim is the lack of support for older Sony PS2 games. It seems to be completely unnecessary, and fails to take into account the thousands of PS2 owners who plan on upgrading while still wanting to play some of their older games.
Bottom line That said, the Sony PS3 Slim is still an impressive achievement, and it easily ranks among the best gaming consoles ever. Slimmer, neater and packed with features, it's definitely a must have. Best offers for the Sony Playstation 3 SlimMarks and Spence...

Bad Only two USB ports instead of four, still no backwards compatibility for PS2 games...
Bottom line With its slicker body and reduced price point, the PlayStation 3 Slim is vastly more enticing than its costly predecessor. As Blu-ray players go, it’s pretty hard to beat -- and that’s before you even factor in the games. If Microsoft claims i...
Product Code: 00711719183044 The slim-line Sony PlayStation 3 Slim console (120GB model) bundles the top-notch features of the earlier PlayStation 3 into a smarter, sleeker package. Sony's remodeled PlayStation 3 (120GB) dropped a couple of dress si...
Bottom line 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 PlayStat...
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...
Good Much more affordable, brilliant gaming, second-to-none video and media player...
Bad A bit loud, drive cover is a bit cheap and flimsy, still not quite "cheap"...
Bottom line 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...
Say hello to Sony's newest games console. Not ready to shepherd in the next generation with PS4 quite yet, the Japanese tech giant instead opts for a trimmed-down take on the PlayStation 3 - a 'super slim' model that makes even the last iteration of th...
Good SSD storage option, Tiny dimensions, Great media capability, Perfect for newcomers...
Bad Flimsy exterior, Cheap drive mechanism, Tough price point...
Bottom line Where it does offer food for thought, though, is in the 12GB model's SSD. We think the 500GB model of super-slim is overpriced at £240/$300, in that all it really offers to the existing user base is more gigabytes to fill up. If you're struggling to mana...
With built-in Blu-ray, Wi-Fi and a 120GB hard drive, the £249 Sony PS3 Slim seems set to become one of the best console deals on the market. It is amazing what a long-awaited price cut and reconfigured hardware setup can do for a system, but with the PS3...
The PS3 Slim sees Sony hoping to invigorate sales of the Playstation 3 with a lighter and much less expensive model. No doubt the company views this as a chance to redeem the brand before it starts to look like a fat old aunt in the console war. For th...
Bottom line 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 con...
The slim PS3 aims to do away with the reputation of the original chubby PS3. No more is it gargantuan, garish and glossier than an iPod nano wearing lipstick. But is the mini, matte and streamlined version an improvement? Read our slim PS3 review: d...
Good Smaller and cheaper than ever before...
Bad No PS2 compatibility...
Bottom line Ticks all the right boxes for an upgrade, but there's no reason to shell out again if you have a first gen PS3...
Call it drab, call it dull, call it penny pinching and conservative, but releasing the PS3 Slim is easily the most sensible move Sony has made in donkeys' years. Where it cuts down on the feature set of the original PS3 it does so in ways that don't reall...
Bottom line A more focussed, more affordable, surprisingly quiet PS3. This is the hardware Sony needs to win mainstream hearts and minds. All it needs now is the software...
Despite its actual performance, its lineup of games, the extra tricks it does, no console in history has been as maligned as Sonys PlayStation 3. Too big, too loud, too expensive - the list of perceived wrongs is long and shrilly declaimed by a surpr...
Good More compact and understated; Runs much quieter; Cheaper than many full-spec Blu-ray players...
Bad 120GB HDD seems ungenerous; Still no remote or HDMI cable...
If the original PlayStation 3 was a big glossy testament to Sony's arrogance and excess, the new Slim offers a refreshing (if not particularly sexy) act of contrition.Virtually everything about this machine is scaled back. The price has dropped to arou...
