Great video.
I don’t know which looks better,Maya or the new PS3 :)
I actually like the new design.The disc tray reminds me of the original Playstation.
I’ll definitely be picking this up next month.

Who did those songs in the video? MonoPrice has some really good deals on HDMI cables. If anyone was wondering.

The disc tray design on it’s own is enough for me to not purchase this. In fact… the fact that you used this cheap disk tray, then still did not add more USB ports even though they are pennies a piece, you refuse to undo the software change for the wireless headset that turned it into junk because you can hear what is in the room you are sitting in is enough that regardless of the free internet play and you increase the price?!? I will be moving over to the XBOX where most DLC is available a month before it is available on the PSN.

I had been considering purchasing another 2 PS3’s after I heard that you were redesigning it and this is a FAIL of EPIC proportions. Give your head a shake Sony.

I was actually hoping for an upgrade. I don’t find where there has been much of a change other then a fancy design on top and a tray. Neither is appealing to me, I’m looking for upgrades where they count. As far as lighter, well mine has a permanent home so whoopee. I already have a PS3 slim model, Uncharted 3 and a membership so I’m disappointed. What I am disappointed the most in is that Sony is not releasing a better move system. In my opinion, graphics wise PS3 blows xbox out of the water with their Blu-ray but when it comes to Xbox’s Kinect PS3 is seriously lacking. Please Sony, get on the ball and release products with upgrades where it matters. They will get bigger sales by giving gamers a reason to abandon their old systems to gobble up your new one. They need to keep up with the new industry standards.

Like the new look. Looking forward to the 500 gb bundle.

Another note. Complaints on the disk tray really? Come on, the ps3 is by far the best gaming system today. Why are people so anxious to compete with the WIi U ? That fad will die down as fast as the original Wii did. And the XBox is an inferior product that only sells in NA.

@PlayStation – beside 500 gb and the design ,
does it read pen drive’s over 40 gb , does it read external disc’s over 1 tb , is it faster on web browsing then a turttle ??????”

I would LOVE to get this sucker… if it came in white or grey, I’d go out and get one immediately. It would be a terrific blend of old and new!

Dear, Sony and playstation.
My 2nd ps3 just broke and i want to get the new uncharted ps3 bundle. You dont have it in any stores yet so i am forced to buy an older model with uncharted 3 that isnt the goty edition. Now that isnt a big deal but the fact that i am paying more money for an older model that doesnt come with the goty ediont uncharted, ps plus or dust 514. You guys really need to redcue the pricing on old models or at least get the new models in stores so people can buy them without ordering them online. – from: concerned customer

@Chainclutch they most likely did that so when the system breaks you can actaully get the disk out easier

When will the console be available without the bundle?

Oops! Not that I need a new ps3 right now but I couldnt use the new version because you have to put in the disc from the top. Well, hopefully I never need to buy a new one (even though my first ps3 died on me).

Lol i still have my old one ps3 (the fat model) and i changed my hdd from 80GB to 500GB and still works good. If you remove frequently the dust your ps3 will work for a long time !
