I wonder why they're remodeling it again. Trying to grab the last of the crowd that they can before the new generation? Will they be able to sell enough this late in the generation to cover the cost of producing all these?
PS2 sold over 50 Million after the Xbox 360 came out.

No, it's the perfect time. Make it as cheap as possible and sell the PS3 right along side of the PS4.
Yeah and if the PS4 is not compelling out of the gate just like the PS3 wasn't, this PS3 will hinder the growth of the PS4, just like the PS2 did the PS3. Also could substitute the PSP/PSV example in there as well. But hey if Sony wants to keep repeating history after 2 horrible console launches, they can be my guest. I love the Playstation as I own nearly 10 different pieces of hardware from the PS1 to now, so I would hate to see another poor console launch. I think that would be the end of Sony in the console business.

Not saying this should never come out, just that its way WAY too late.

But remember, that's bad because Microsoft did it with the so-called "tard pack". So this is still bad right?
It's less bad because you can use normal HDDs. Too bad their prices will be inflated for the foreseeable future.

It's also less bad because this is the end of the generation, so the existence of this model won't retard game development in any way.

It's still kind of a stupid time to do it, though, because Sony is currently expanding their full game downloads/PSN plus trials, etc.

Still, gotta hit that low price point.

I said the same thing about the PS3 slim but it turned out alright in terms of design.

Not a fan of this right now, but i'll hold on until I see the model in good quality.

The only people who thought the Arcade was a bad idea were kids who didn't understand business principles or kids who received the actual consoles and had parents who refused to buy them a harddrive.

I don't know anyone reasonable who thought that was a bad idea for MS's business. Mass public doesn't easily understand feature disparity, but they can easily understand price disparity. The Arcade made it look like the 360 was way more affordable than the PS3 to the majority of people and I think that public perception has persisted regardless of the actual reality. Brilliant move on MS's part.

Thought it looked good until I scrolled down and saw the top. Ugh. I actually want to buy a new PS3 but the Slim is ugly as well as the disk drive being loud and that thing looks even worse. Come on Sony, give me a reason to give you my money again.
