    It still has 2 USB ports (as opposed to 4 in older PS3 models). And you can hook up a USB hub to it for more ports.

    Well, the stable thing can just be fixed with a bookstand (is that the name of it?) and a shelf type thing. Not hard.

    Thanks for the all-together, Prinny. I'll be getting one Sep.5th/6th.
    Hope you find the money for it, Prinny.

    Not worth it if you already have one, imo. Plus, it's uglier than the large one (purely opinion, but I think a lot of people will feel this way).
    If you already have a fat ps3, the only thing you'd be missing by not having the slim is a 120gb hard drive, which you can easily get for around $35.

    Why anybody would buy another one is beyond me in the first place really. Replacing the other one sure, but like you said it's really isn't worth the effort.

    I'm going to need to wait on more Kindgom Hearts 3 news, assuming it comes out on PS3. Other than that, I really see no other reason to buy one for myself..

    It can be fixed by putting it the way nearly all my classic consoles go and the way that its shown in the pics

    I didn't know it couldn't stand up by itself, but besides that, this review could have been more in-depth compared to other reviews out there (IGN has a good one). I guess there is no + for being quieter, the best blu-ray player value, and $100 cheaper, huh?

    Oh geez, SHUT UP, you idiot. This isn't freaking 2006.

    lol I'm no fanboy, but it seems to me that Sony has been cranking out the exclusives since late '08.

    PS3 slim did not remove any USB ports, as it still has two. I don't know why this review threw in the USB blurb in that negative when the current fat PS3 models also have only 2 USB ports. I think he meant that the PS3 has removed USB ports over its lifetime (there were 4 in the launch models).

    The ps3 slim doesn't have any backwards capability. It is better to stick with the old ps3, much better in other terms.

    The launch 3s are the only ones with backwards capabilities. Good luck finding one now.
