Comment:brand new 250gb hard drive PS3 slim console. I will include two free games Fifa 10 and FIFA 2010 World Cup both pre-owned but good condition.

The internal design architecture of the PS3 Slim, from the main semiconductors and power supply unit to the cooling mechanism, has been completely redesigned, achieving a much slimmer and lighter body. Compared to the very first PS3 model with 60GB HDD, the internal volume as well as its thickness and weight are trimmed down to approximately two-thirds.

Furthermore, power consumption is also cut to two-thirds, helping to reduce fan noise. While inheriting the sleek curved body design of the original model, the form factor of the PS3 Slim features a new meticulous design with textured surface finish, giving an all-new impression and a casual look.

PS3 Slim continues to offer the cutting-edge features and functions of the original models, such as the ability to enjoy high-definition Blu-ray disc movies and games, as well as various content and services downloadable through the network. PS3 Slim's storage size has increased from 80GB to 250GB, and with the extra capacity users will be able to store more games, music, photos, videos as well as various content and services available through PlayStation Network.

Having more than 27 million registered accounts around the world, PlayStation Network offers more than 15,000 pieces of digital content, ranging from game titles, trailers, and demos to more than 15,000 movies and TV shows via PlayStation Store. PlayStation Network members can also download free applications, such as PlayStation Home, a ground-breaking 3D social gaming community available on PS3 that allows users to interact, communicate and share gaming experiences, as well as Life with PlayStation, which offers users various news and information on a TV monitor in the living room by connecting the PS3 to the network.

PS3 system software update version 3.00

  • The updated system software adds various user-friendly features such as the "What's New" screen, where users can quickly browse the new items available in PlayStation Store as well as their recently played games directly on the XMB (XrossMediaBar), with shortcuts to each piece of content. PS3 will evolve continuously with the system software updates, further improving the operability and enhancing the user experience available through the network. PS3 owners will be able to enjoy new features by simply updating the PS3 system software to version 3.00 via the "System Update" function on the XMB.
  • BRAVIA Sync feature

    • The PS3 Slim is also equipped with the BRAVIA Sync feature. By connecting the PS3 Slim and a BRAVIA TV with the HDMI cable, users are able to directly operate the XMB on PS3 using the TV remote control. Other functions include "System Standby" that will automatically turn off the PS3 when the BRAVIA TV is turned off.

    Vertical Stand for PS3 Slim (CECH-2000 series)

    • By utilising the Vertical Stand (sold separately), users will be able to set the PS3 Slim in vertical position, making it easier to place the PS3 anywhere at home.

    I was lucky enough to have a ps3 60 gb on launch day in the uk, I thought it was a really good console and as a blue ray player it would match any other top end blue ray player on the market. I never thought much about the slim because I was happy with my big power house but then right out of the blue it died on me R.I.P So I could either send it away and get a referb for over 100 pounds or go get a new one. I decided on the 250gb slim and I have to say I love it if the 60gb was 4 stars the slim is 5 out of 5. Its quieter smaller and a lot lighter it uses less power to run, apparently its loading times can be a little quicker and it comes with a 250gb hard drive so no need to replace it. In my view it is the best consol on the market. *****

     Best Console ever - 360 and Wii dont come close

    Overall this is the best entertainment for your money...It only does everything:

    (1)Browse Internet fast and securely
    (2)Watch freeview tv (Play tv add-on needed and best freeview box around its like sky plus and very cheap)
    (3)BBC Iplayer
    (4)Vidzone (regularly updated music videos streamed directly to ps3)
    (5)Picture gallery (With very detailed slide-shows which you can customise completely to your specs-including music saved on HDD)
    (6)Music can be saved too HDD and easily download from your laptop through a wireless network
    (7)Buy or Rent movies from the playstation video store saved to HDD
    (8)Download full games (PS1,PS2,PS3,PSP) and demo from Playstation store - updated every thursday with new content including above and game/movie trailers....as well as various dynamic themes to customise your ps3 menu and much much more)
    (9)Change settings to exactly how you want your console to act and perform from sound to visuals to automatic updates and downloads etc etc....
    (10)OHHH and it plays games too lol...and PS3 exclusives like Uncharted 1/2 and Killzone 2 are the best graphically and immersive you will ever play Xbox 360 cant come close to the superior graphics and quality the ps3 can deliver.
    (11)Plays Bluray Movies which is the best Picture and sound quality you will ever watch other than the cinema (The Dark Knight on Bluray is immense)
    (12)Firmware Updates allow the ps3 to be improved all the time and whats to come in the future...............3D Gaming, Premium service (for a yearly fee get alot of amazing features)

    I have stated 12 reasons why the ps3 is amazing and a must buy,...and i bet I could think of at least 10 more but that will do for now.....YouCanTrustMe

    Apart from the torture of the game I ordered turning up 7 days after the console, very impressed. I was a die hard 360 user but now the PS3 has blown me away.

     Gets a bit warm, but what a console !!!!!!

    I was going to buy a Blue Ray DVD player, but instead i got this, which not only plays games, Blue Ray, normal DVD's, BUT i can also watch BBC Iplayer, stream movies on WiFi from my PC to this and when watch on TV. Upscales my old DVD's. Excellent graphics, oh, and it does play PS2 games !! 250HD is more than enougth, I can store my pics and movies on it.

    Only thing is it only comes with 1 controller, for this price, it should have 2.

    After a while, it does get quite warm, so this is something to keep an eye on. I have also noticed, that it has frozen up, not whilst playing a game, but whilst moving across the menu. This is annoying, as you have to switch the power off to restart it.

    The kids love it also.

    I am really happy i got this and stronly recommend it. !!!

    Top 100 Games Reviewer

    I have reviewed the xbox 360, now i will give an honset review on the PS3. This really is a great console, that can do a great deal, and is reasonably cheap compared to how much they were when they first came out. I think they were 400 pound or close to. You basically have a machine that can play games, can surf the internet, store music etc. Oh and is a blu ray player.
    One thing i have noticed with the ps3 slim, is yes its really quiet, but it seems to get a little warm, and this causes it to make a crack sound maybe after its been on for an hour or so, and after you have switched it off. The console seems fine though.
    Now if there are any of you out there that are looking for a console for online gaming, i'd say xbox 360 has the edge. You see the playstation network is free of charge, and is great for anyone who wants to play games online. But what i have noticed is, the only games that play with no problem what so ever are the ps3 exclusives. Where as games like modern warfare 2 or anything that you can get for the 360 too, play ok on the ps3 online, but the headset can cut off when talking sometimes, or the servers can be a little temperamental. The ps3 exclusives don't get this, they are always fine. If that doesn't bother any of you, then a ps3 is a good choice for online gaming as it is free, and you don't need to purchase any wireless adapters because it has wifi built into it.
    Now onto graphics. The ps3 has more power, and the use of blu ray discs can make games look amazing. The ps3 exclusives are superb quality. But games you can get for both systems, there is really no difference at all. You would have to put the 360 and ps3 on 2 tvs side by side to spot the difference... if any.
    So in a nut shell, if you want a console that has reasonable online gameplay, then the ps3 is a great choice. But if you want an online service that has more features, then a 360 is for you.
    The ps3 works out cheaper in the end as you dont require any extras to take it online ie network adapter, online subscription etc..
    And it has a blu ray player built into it too.
    So have a read of both my console reviews, to help make up your own mind. Thank you for taking the time to read. And enjoy your console.
