Engadget did a review of the slim and the only knock was slightly slower load times but it now includes the ability to bitstream the HD audio formats and is much quieter (10 dB) than it's predecessor during BD playback.

Over at benheck.com he has bought and disassembled one. I always like his site because he does some cool custom jobs.

I didn't think the slim was available yet, but apparently they hit earlier than the 9/1 date at the top of this thread.

I picked up the PS3 Slim Bundle this morning from Amazon. Sorry about bumping an old thread but I didn't see a separate one for Black Friday type stuff.

I wish they'd just make ONE system, and you pay Nintendo $200 to unlock their portion of it (Play their games), pay Sony $300 for their portion, and Microsoft however much they charge. And they're transferable in case the system dies, or you just want to replace it.
Unfortunately for me, the 2 main series I play are on 2 different systems (Final Fantasy and Zelda).

Wow, old thread. Kevin, I certainly see where you're coming from. Unfortunately won't happen. Now, one thing I'm really looking forward to seeing if it will work is OnLive. That looks really cool. But you still won't see Nintendo or Sony exclusive content.

James, I don't think I've seen anyone as excited about owning a Wii as you are. I have one, but just haven't seen compelling games other than some first party stuff.

Built-in Blu-ray, Netflix streaming, free on-line gaming, superb graphics...

That being said I do have a Wii myself and not a PS3 at this time, but there are definitely things I wish it could do that it can't.

It will get netflix at least. Odd that you can stream movies but not play a DVD movie (licensing I know.)

Problem on some of the other stuff, at least HD graphics, if it had that they'd lose the low cost benefit. But that's eroded a bit over time. A slim is what, about $100 more? Big difference from when it was about $500 in the US.

Don't get me wrong. I think the Wii is a great deal and when it gets Netflix that will only add to its value. However, the PS3 is a great bargain right now at $299.
