Milk what?

Its common in electronics world to take something, make it cheaper to produce, smaller, quieter, use less power....

Works out well for those that wait to buy something this late in the game, they get the "best" version of the console with a massive back catalogue of cheap games.

So if you haven't played any of the say, 30-40+ TOP games of this generation by now they should just be ignored?

Doesn't everyone remember how little a library a new system has?



no they should not be ignored but the fact for the cost or a feww bucks more you geta next gen system that will have some of the same titels on it but better version of them . all the current new games coming out will be on the Wii U at launch or int e launch window ther is 50 games to be released in the launch window that is from November 18th to March .


Why pay for 7 year old console at this point in time chances are we or anyone wanting one has played most of those titles at friends house all i can say agian or so is i think it is a wast of money at that price


Wii-U lasting 7 years or more or i assume getting the latest games with higher quality version more features and getting more sequals or 1st hand orginal games because the hardware does more to what developer wants


Or


Ps3 aging console running out of leg room matter fact now down to the last toe to stand on and Developers really have pushed it to the end that it can do. it wont get ACS 4 i would imagine it wont get the next Bioshock game after the current one coming out it wont get the next need for speed after what ever new one comes out in the next half year i think ya get the idea

Instead of arguing any more with you all I'll say is I think you'll get a surprise over the next year at how decently this sells compared to your thoughts of it being 'pointless' due to Wii-U.

I don't think the 12Gb version supports an internal HDD, there is a post on NeoGAF with a 250Gb External drive that will only work on 12Gb version.

I'm glad I didn't blindly buy one, I was going to replace my slim and drop my HDD in it if the 12Gb version was cheap enough.

It is clearly marked PLAYSTATION 3, if they go out and buy it thinking its the next gen console they deserve to lose their money.


Yes it does, the 12GB simply doesn't come with the hard drive bay (the bit you screw your hard drive into on current models). You need to buy a bay then slot it in. The bay may be the same one in the current PS3s, if not, Ebay one (no point in buying it from Sony, they're selling official ones, they'll overcharge).

It's also common to make them cheaper to buy in the process too, but due to their(BOTH sony and microsoft's) desire to drag out this console gen far beyond its expiration date, that part of the plan has stagnated quite a bit.

I'm not defending them but maybe they want a little big of wiggle room cost vs profit wise so they can drop the price near PS4 launch?

From DF

Going forward, it's the ability to market the PS3 at a reduced price point that makes this model so important to Sony. At the moment, this 500GB SKU appears to be attracting a price just above a 320GB Slim bundled with a game or two. As things stand, unless we were really pressed for physical space, we'd take the hit on HDD space in exchange for the build quality and the freebie software of the older model. However, looking to the future, this new model forms the basis of Sony's ability to aggressively reduce RRPs to better take on the Xbox 360; if it genuinely cut prices and tossed in a three-month trial to PlayStation Plus, with its tremendous instant games collection, we'd have the makings of a truly competitive package.

So why would someone take a Wii U which will never get any of those games over the new super slim PS3 which is only slightly less powerful than the Wii U, £70 cheaper and will get all of the multiplatform games that the Wii U will, not to mention PS+ and the free instant game collection.

It then gives them a year or so to save up £350-450 for a true next gen console like PS4 or Next Xbox?

The only reason to go Wii U is for first party Nintendo games and they have been lacklustre of late, New Super Mario Bros Wii U is the same as NSMB Wii which was the same as NSMB DS. No 3D Mario, No 3D Zelda, No Mario Kart, etc..

If the next gen consoles are a significant leap ahead the Wii U is going to find itself in the same place the Wii has, it might get the odd 'version' of the latest titles but its not going to get the latest and greatest multiplatform games.

Why don't they take their time and make them this small from the start? Instead of rushing out the fat ones and later streamlining them.

I know. And what was the deal with ENIAC? Why didn't they just take their time and make an ultrabook from the start?

It doesn't work like that, you use the tech that's available at the time....

New processes become available, the CELL cpu that powers the PS3 for example started as a 90nm part.

The next revision was on a 65nm process which allowed the console to run cooler and use less power, the next was 45nm die shrink which enabled them to create the PS3 Slim, smaller chips means smaller console.

There are no numbers confirmed but the new slim PS3 CPU could be on 32nm process which allowed them to shrink the console even more.

They didn't intentionally make it big just so they can bring out smaller ones in the future, they were in a race against Microsoft to bring out the next generation of console first so they were limited by how much time they could put into it, but realistically the manufacturing tech that was available at the time I don't see it being much smaller.

the Wii U has 50 games for launch window first and many many 3rd party games as all developers are on board and have had nothing but praise the Wii U hardware and the power it has over the current system . and even if the next gen sony and MS consolkes come out with let say DX11 quality graphics and slightly more Vram or somthing and the same type of controils so what because the Wii U has enough more then enough innovation with the Wii U ggamepad they will still be able to produce a better version of the same game all while just giving sony and MS a slightly better looking game just nothing else more added
