PS3 slim feels like a toy

After a brief mourning period for the untimely demise of my “fat” 80GB PS3, I decided to get the new 120GB PS3 slim. A gamer has to game, right? I found that there is a good reason why the “slims” are cheaper than the early “fat” PS3 versions. My 80GB felt, ran and looked like a machine rather than a sleek-looking videogame toy.

Gone are my Flash and SD cardslots that were useful in transfering digital pictures and files. The harddrive cover is a flimsy, thin, cheap-looking plastic. I miss the power switch in the back to cut power without pulling the plug. The power and eject buttons on the PS3 Slim doesn’t have the cool-factor of the older 80GB model. Wow. This sucks. I’m going to have store my old 80GB PS3. It trully has become a piece of gaming history in my opinion.  File this under: “They don’t make ’em like they use to.”

    Thanks for posting! I wondered whether or not to upgrade when my PS3 (seemingly) bit the dust. Now I can get an idea of why they would rather me take the new one than fix my old one. Very interesting.

    I’m hoping that these slim ones don’t have the problems the old fat ones did. It had something to do with the motherboards. I was thinking of selling my old 80GB for parts but I decided to keep it for nostalgia’s sake. hehhehe
