Way to revive a dead thread, but you are right. My buddy won one as a prize and it died the 3rd time he turned it on. took it back to BestBuy for a replacement. It's cheap and I'd buy a slim if you can.
The PS3 Slim is a lot better than the Super Slim. And you are not going to carry it around then why make it small, I mean that is so stupid! My Gaming PC blows both the Consoles out of the plane of existence and my PC also blows away the rumored PS4. My PC beats the hell out of even the Mac PRO, I was just saying the real power of a good PC.
