PlayStation 3 GameStop Exclusive Azurite Blue 250GB System with The Last of Us Bundle
Great system, stunning game
The system runs very smoothly and I love the radiant navy color, even though I thought it was going to be much lighter in real life. It's small and portable, so I don't have to carry a heavy load if I want to take it with me somewhere. It does heat up sometimes though, if I'm playing for longer than an hour, but it's nothing serious. The only thing I wish it had is backwards compatibility, but I'm not too upset about that. The Last of Us is an outstanding game, and I must say it's one of my absolute favorites. It pulls on your heartstrings, and it's definitely worth playing. This is a great bundle, and I would recommend it to anyone, especially beginner gamers.
I think the color looks great and what better game for it to come with then the Last of Us. I can't wait to get my hands on this bundle. :D
Great color variation
I did want a ps3 system for my collection, not the regular one but a special edition one. Unfortunately, unlike Nintendo and MS, Sony does not make real special editions of ps3, just different colors and bundles. I kept my eye on this azurite gamestop exclusive one and when I saw this great bundle became available - purchased it right away. Pros: 1. great color; 2. Physical copy of the game (labeled not for resale); 3. Does not overheat; Cons: nothing I can think of, the glossy finish attracts fingerprints, but it is minor issue. Overall it is just ps3 system, never had one, but since they moved to ps4 I figured it will be unavailable pretty soon so now it the time to buy one.
It's a good system, but it shouldn't be called the last of us bundle. I ordered it for pick up at store, and they gave me a completely different game. If I would have known that I would have gotten a different bundle or just the system itself.
Got this system as an early Christmas present and I love it!! The game is amazing and i couldn't ask for more. The color is awesome and the system overall is a must have.. (:
My Fat 40GB PS3 in piano black was beautiful. It lasted me a whole 5+ years before I had to retire it. When I was looking for a replacement, I came across this bundle and it seems like the best deal out there (this particular moment anyway). The best part is the limited edition color and the fact that it was readily available at my local Gamestop. Everywhere else was sold out and I really didn't want to wait 4-6 days to get it in the mail.
I don't like the styling of this slim model at all. The BD drive is a lot noisier than the original. But i guess it's not so bad since it will be sitting behind glass most of the time anyway.
Oh, one cool overlooked feature that this model (as of CECH-2000) is the HDMI Control feature. Now when i turn this baby on, my TV automatically switches on. Woo!
Great bundle and amazing blue console!
My slim PS3 died on me while playing GTA5 and I decided to purchase this bundle since I wanted the game it came with and an amazing color console of choice. I chose to buy this bundle and wait on a PS4 since the 1st generations machines tend to have issues with bugs/crashes. Plus the PS3 is lacking titles at the moment.
Love the blue console!
Sad to see my fat PS3 go, but I have been happy with this console so far. While the design isn't as nice as the original, the blue color makes up for it. Set up and game play both very good. It is so quiet while running you almost can't tell it is on. I would give it a 10 if it were backwards compatible...
