PlayStation 3 250GB System Uncharted 3: Game of the Year Bundle
I Love my ps3 super slime bundle
I pick up the last PlayStation bundle yesterday at best buy with a media remote and I Love the super slim ps3 its very quit and fast also I love the blu ray player too its play all my movie and I just love it
The slim I owned was better
Don't get me wrong, this is still the PS3 in all its glory, but I have to say that I enjoyed owning my slim model a lot better than this one. This is the model that has the sliding top where you can place the disc into the system similar to the PS2. While it runs fine, I do notice that this model freezes more often and takes longer to read the disc at times (which I find funny because that was supposed to be what this system did better than the slim at). As for its pros, I would say that it's nice to have more space with these models, and it doesn't crash as much as my slim did. And, yes, I'm talking about two different things when I say crashing versus freezing. Having your game freeze is different from the system beeping and restarting itself. You can't really go wrong with either model, but those are just the little differences I've noticed. The sliding top took a little while to get used to, and I still personally prefer the slim, but this still runs about as well as past models of the PS3.
Super Slim Excels
New Top Loader - A lot of people have complained but I think its a great feature, I've had the sliding trays get stuck in the past which is a pain.
Blu-ray Player - If you've been living in the past with DVD prepare to be amazed.
Game Selection - 6 years into its life and your provided with dozens of hit titles. The Uncharted series, InFamous series, Gran Turismo 5 & Metal Gear Solid 4 are a few must plays!
Free Online Service - Sony has it right here, play online with your friends at no charge.
No Non-Bundle - Super Slim is great but it would be nice to be able to get just the console by itself, I'd rather they got rid of the "$70+" of bonus content and just mark it $199.99.
No HDMI Cable - Seriously?
I traded in my whole 360 set up and games, and walked out with a brand new PS3, and 6 games. Everyone is complaining about the disc tray, mine sits on my dresser next to my tv and I've had no problems with it. I absolutely LOVE my PS3 and this bundle was a great deal, especially after GameStop gave me such great prices for my trade ins. I think I only ended up spending about 50 bucks out of pocket for 2 games. Amazing deal, thanks GAMESTOP! :)
Cant wait! the smaller the better!
cant wait to buy this i was going to buy another hard drive for my current ps3 and also wanted to get another ps3 for multiple online play and this is coming out just in time for a new fresh look and style for the ps3 much easy for traveling not looking forward the ps4 after hearing the rumors about not being able to use used games or ps3 games and being a manly downloaded game console. but who knows until its out in 1-2-3-4 years for now its ps3!
Still a great system but getting long in the tooth
I bought this system after my 5 old 80GB 'Fat' PS3 finally died. The more attractive 'Slim' models were actually going for a higher price which I found odd so it made the choice between this bundle or the soon to be released Assassins Creed 3 bundle. I've always enjoyed the Uncharted series & the only real attraction to the higher priced AC3 bundle was the larger HDD. I also liked the included extras of 1 month of PlayStation + (I have since went ahead & bought a full year, it's a pretty good value) & the Dust 514 game voucher. Now a few words about the hardware. Sony has managed to shrink it down even further than the Slim & reduced the weight. I'm not really a fan of the new look as it feels somewhat cheap & plasticky to the touch. My main concern is the new sliding door on the top that covers the Blu Ray drive. I'll have to wait & see how it holds up under repeated open/close cycles. The unit is very quiet. Much more so than the 'Slim' model I also have & the now retired 'Fat' model. Other than the omission of the trusty WiFi LED if you are familiar with the PS3 then you know what you are getting. Do you buy it or wait? I guess my answer is to ask what are you waiting for? The PS4 is not officially announced yet nor is the timeline for any successor to the PS console family. Xbox & Wii gamers could certainly do worse than this bundle at this price. Unless you are holding out for the Wii U. There are some great games to play now & the library of Sony exclusives is top shelf with names like Uncharted, God Of War, Killzone, Resistance, MGS4 (still an amazing game) & of course Blu Ray functionality right out of the box. The HD remakes of some classic PS2 franchises is also icing on an already pretty tasty cake. If you already have a working PS3 'Slim' there is little need to invest here. If you have an older 'Fat' PS3 that could use some much needed rest or is on its last legs this could be a great option for replacement. Enjoy whichever route you go.
BEST PS3 EVER DOESN'T LET ME DOWN
I got this ps3 after my fat PS3 died because of the YLOD so instead of selling it a guy at gamestop gave me a awesome deal and I only had to pay $75 for the new PS3 which was pretty much great cuz I already have BO2 and I need another game so I don't get bored and Uncharted 3 is the best game ever I've played Uncharted 2 which was pretty good but I haven't played it in a while so this is a awesome PS3 you can not hear the fan at all all you can hear is the disc moving and that's about it and the top hatch for the disc is pretty cool because what happens if this PS3 got the YLOD you don't need to open the whole ps3 up and break open the Blu ray player trying to get your game and you got 50 / 50 chance of not getting it scratched so the top tray thing is a really great idea and the 2 things I don't like about the PS3 is: It doesnt come with a HDMI cable which is stupid and the Vertical stand even though it shows it right on the picture. So yeah I recommend this to anyone who has a PS3 fat or slim and get the superslim this is a awesome deal!
Good but I still prefer other platforms
I bought this as my first PS3. I got it to play the exclusive franchises like "Uncharted", "Infamous", and "LittlebigPlanet." All of which are some of the best games out there. However after the first two months of owning it, it just turned into just my BluRay player. Even though I'm trading it in it was worth the money I put into it. The only thing I don't like is psn, I can't stand the interface. Plus the download speeds and having to install the newer games takes a ridiculous amount of time compared to xbl and steam. Btw, the BluRay dvd watching is amazing, I hate how my actual BluRay player is unresponsive and pain in the neck, the ps3 makes movie watching great. And if you watch tv shows on it it has a continuous play throughout multiple discs.
Seems like A good deal
Our 80GB backwards compatible PS3 after 6 years of dependable service died this spring. We used it for everything Gaming, Movies, Netflix and Music. I'm excited to see that there is a disc tray, hopefuly there is a manual release. Our PS3 died with a game in it and we had to disassemble it to get the game out. We can't wait for our NEW PS3 now I can finish Assasians Creed 2.
Considering Sony released a new PS3, this one is actually cheaper than their 320GB Uncharted 3 pack, and this includes Uncharted 3 Game of the Year edition. The overall design is very sleek, and attractive looking, and it stands vertical perfectally. The PS Plus feature is excellent, for less than $4 a month, you get around $1,200 of free games, and early beta access and a lot more. I recommend this product to you, or to anyone, it's a great value.
