The new PS3 models are coming our way soon, and we wanted to know how Sony fans felt about the new machine.

Although a few said they plan to immediately upgrade their old PS3 console, the majority said that while the fresh consoles are good enough, they'll be sticking with their system for at least a while. Sounds logical.

It's also interesting to note that a fair amount said they would've rather seen a lower price tag, and just about the same number of participants said they didn't care at all; they just want the PS4. We usually see new hardware models toward the end of a generation; as the technology gets better, they can manufacture smaller, more efficient machines. But at the same time, a lot of hardcore gamers are already looking forward to the new consoles on the horizon. Therefore, the new models may appeal more to the casual audience who might finally pick up a PS3 because it's at the right price, and there are a ton of games for it.

This week, some might say the fall rush officially starts with Resident Evil 6 . So are you getting it? Will you be one of the first people in line? Are you going to wait for reviews? Or are you just passing on it altogether?

New and cheaper models are nice. I tend to keep my stuff for years until they break, but at least when they do break the replacements are cheaper.

I'm going to wait on reviews first. Look at how Operation Raccoon City turned out so I'm not so sure on this one. Even if reviews are good, I'll wait for a significant price drop since it's more action oriented. I'm going to pay full retail for Dead Space 3 though.
I like the newer designed consoles but if it isn't broke, why fix it? When mine dies then I'll consider a new model but ONLY is the PS4 isn't on the horizon first assuming it's going to be backwards compatible.

I liked the RE6 demo, though I've only played Leon's campaign. There is a little classic RE to it even if it's not in the gameplay, but yeah since it is clearly going for intense shooter and not horror I think I'll wait. Maybe it's just me but the graphics look like a downgrade for some reason too. Looks to be worth about $20.

Since I already have a Phat & a Slim, I've really no need for a Super Slim ATM.

And I agree with those good words that my Mama always said….

"Waste not, want not"

I love my original slim PS3, and I just upgraded my hard drive to an 750 GB, so I don't plan on upgrading. Besides I think the new model is ugly. Also Resident Evil 6 D1P!

I really haven't liked any of the RE for some time, so I will probably skip this one. I'm going to be tied up with other games anyway.

unles your ps3 is on the way out like mine there really is no reason to get the new ps3.
i prefer it to the slim just because its smaller its allot easier to transport around, but while in use i wish they would of stuck with the slot load drive.
since its top load the drive is allot closer to the top and my god does it make a racket!
i cant use it at night because people are constantly complaining its keeping them up!
think ill have to sell it on ebay and try track down a quieter normal slim model.
ūüôĀ

another think is the build quality, i mean $ony is not exactly known for making high quality systems but my god the plastic on this thing feels like it came out of a tim tam wrapper!
especially the wrippled plastic it feels so wafer thin a freaking 2 day old baby could rip it off!
i wish $ony would take some leassons from apple!
they make some nice looking hardware, but when it comes to build quality, well, you get the point.

as for RE6 had it since last thursday and am hating every second of it!
as i said yesterday, whole point of this game, whole point of the seperate campaigns, was so they could differentiate the gameplay styles.
then they go and make every campaign mindless action!
i mean seriously, why am i racing through the woods with zombies on my car playing as leon?
why is leon falling down a swewr being chased by a massive monster?
chrisses campaign i could understand, but if this is crapcoms idea of action horror than i cant wait to see what their idea of mindless action is!

never thought id be saying this, but RE6 is actually WORSE than RE5!
at least that had the inventory, looting, puzzles, tense boss battles the series is known for.
it still had some really suspenceful moments, especially the boss battles with the executioner and chainsaw dude.
RE6 though has none of those!
its taken everything good about RE5 and thrown them out the window!
everything bad about it, just that much worse!
sigh.
and i thought id be impossible to make a RE worse than 5!
well, at least crapcom is proving me wrong.
but in the wrong way……….

I'd like to retire my launch PS3 in the near future. I plan to wait and see what kind of Boxing Day specials they have on either the Slim's or Super Slim's.

I'm thinking about upgrading to the new Slim once I get enough money.

I was looking forward to an improved model, not the other way around. With a noisier top-loading dust magnet disc drive, why go with the new model??
