Would you buy a slimmer version of the PS3? Sony hopes your answer will be yes. Today we're going to take a look at this slimmed-down brother to the popular gaming console and see if it's lost any power along with its weight and size.
It appears as if Sony has decided that it is do or die time. While the manufacturer has many loyal and dedicated fans of its PS3 console, it has managed to lag behind in the sales race when compared with the Nintendo Wii and the Xbox 360 from Microsoft.
Rather than sitting on their hands, Sony went to work to create a slimmer, better version of the PS3 with the hopes of boosting fledgling sales and regaining a stronghold in the ever-competitive marketplace of gaming consoles.
Enter the PS3 Slim. This is not the first time Sony has done such a thing. In 2004 the electronics giant introduced a much slimmer PS2 to the market, just four years after the original launched. The end result was a boost in sales and added popularity for the brand.
Sony has to like what they have seen so far from the Slim, as in its first week it outsold competing consoles by a 3:1 ratio and boosted its sales nearly one thousand percent. We will have to see if those numbers continue or simmer down once the excitement wanes.
With the PS3 Slim, gamers can expect a slimmer and more affordable console. The PS3 Slim promises better and quieter performance, along with tons of features that make it somewhat of an all-in-one entertainment device for the home.
Besides the gaming features, you can also look forward to Blu-ray capabilities and built-in Wi-Fi. Although you won’t get to be nostalgic and play your old PS2 games on this new edition of the PS3, you can still look forward to an all-around great device. The Sony PS3 Slim 120 GB version is now on sale for a retail price of $299.
