What we're trying to understand is why Sony say you need to buy a PS3 Slim for it.

HDMI CEC? What is that exactly, hardware related?

Wow, I can't believe the PSP Go is only ?25 less expensive then the new PS3. How on earth can they possibly spin that one?

EDIT: Then again, the DSi is only ?30 less expensive then the Wii... so I suppose they'll get away with it ?_?;

I think that they will be doing a price drop during TGS. It's $250 U.S., so I think they might drop it to $200 to distinguish it away from the PS3.

I also hope that when things get even smaller in the PS3 (CPU, etc.) I hope that they release another slim. Imagine a PS3 as small as the PS2 Slim with a Blu-Ray drive and all that good stuff:D; :D

I don't think you can send those kind of signals over HDMI. The reason it doesn't work with a fat PS3 is no IR. Otherwise it could've been done in a firmware update.

ya you can :p that's the way Sony's Bravia sync system works.

The slim price is ok, but the pspGO price is some kind of messed up joke.

Ah crap, guess I won't be getting Bravia Sync then, sucks :(

Check out this comparison pic, it's actually slightly smaller than the PS2

The worst footprint for most people is height/width, most TV units tend to have a fairly generous depth.

You'll never get anything as small as the PS2 Slim due to these consoles having hard drives/Ethernet built in. The PS2 slim was pretty ridiculous, could almost fit it in your mouth :p I would love to have something that small though :(

I wish they would use the same boxes as Blu Rays. The blue is sexy :drool:

All PS3s have HMDI 1.3a included so Bravia Synch should be completely possible on older models.

I want a Bravia myself tbh :p

I like the design. It's only the top that looks a bit crap - it looks bare. But I'm not going to be seeing the top - I'll just be seeing the front.

congrats and good move. also, now they look even more like Atari 7800's, just like the PS2 looked like an upside down 2600...

The more I see it the more i like it.

I might actually sell my 40GB PS3 for this, cause I hate the glossy finish. It's so scratched. :p

You know the more I think about the PS3 Slim, the more I think about how it is the WORST kept secret. :wacko: With prototypes being found in the Philippines, leaked images, leaked information from retailers, and Sony reps spilling the secrets. :p

Out of curioristy, do we know if the power supply will work abroad? Otherwise my Canada plans are scruppered.

All I'm going to say here is check around with people who have actually DONE IT, before you leap. Some people apparently had quite a few problems going UK --> Canada/US with the other models.

Now to buy this for the family. My daughter's been waiting for Little Big Planet for ages. :)

I don't think you can send those kind of signals over HDMI.

That's the whole point of these syncing systems with HDMI, though. The TVs and the other units sync via HDMI.

Hey wait, if they can now do the Bravia sync and it IS hardware based, does that mean it will bitstream the HD audio streams also? Does this mean they changed the HDMI chip in the new model?

Veronica Bellmont has put pictures of the PS3 Slim up (not press shots, the actual physical unit).

Hehe I was going to post that.

Looks pretty cool.
