Completely  redesigning the internal design architecture,  the internal volume and weight of the new PS3 is reduced by more than half compared to the very first PS3 model with a 60GB HDD, and by 20 % and 25% respectively compared to the current PS3. By adopting a sliding disk cover, the new PS3 continues with the characteristic sleek curved simple body design, which fits various places in the home and enables users to enjoy an array of entertainment content.

With the extra HDD capacity which has been extended from 320GB and 160GB, users can store and enjoy more and more entertainment content including games, music, photos, and video on the new PS3.  In addition, the new PS3 with 12GB flash memory offers opportunities to experience the world of PlayStation® at an affordable price point.  Users can also expand the storage capacity of the new PS3 with 12GB flash memory by connecting a dedicated HDD (250GB) to be released concurrently with the new PS3.

Noisy and less nice than previous models

Bought this with a bundle (GTA V) and was at first very happy with how small and sleek the design was, it looks really nice. When i started playing though, the first impression was blown away by the sound this little machine makes. Every time the game loads from disc it makes a noise and in GTA V (and many other games) the sound becomes unbearable. Other than the noise it scratches very easily when cleaning it and the lid is very annoying to get dust off. I recommend buying an older version of the Playstation 3 (ive exchanged mine to a regular PS3 Slim 320gb) because its better built, less noisy, easier to clean and works just the same.

Having just retired, never had time for games machines before, thought it was time to see what all the fuss was about. A bit apprehensive with regards to setting up but found it so easy, even for an old codger like me. delighted with the blue ray playing and connectivity with the internet etc. Once I master the control pad look out you gamers out there. Excellent.

The right choice.

Despite the fact that PS4 is launching soon enough, I would take such an offer as soon as possible, and start gaming with my new console! Playstation 3 Slim is already light weighted and and simple, gives you a feeling of easy accessibility and comfort while using, and its 500 GB, which is extremely good enough to handle 95% of your gaming needs for PS3. Price is mind-blowing, I would take it if I haven't bought the PS3 a couple of years ago with a higher price and 75 GB only, it really sets the gamer's hope to a high level. So if you haven't bought it yet , then you should now, this product will be worth every cent you pay.

It has been a pleasure to deal with Zavvi.com.I found the PS3 was delivered next day. It arrived packaged really well, and the model I chose the 500Gb. It was the best price I have seen anywhere. Thank you for your excellent service, I really am impressed all round.

Amazing Console

The PS3: New Sony Playstation 3 Slim Console (500 GB) is the best console out there now and I've searched everywhere for the cheapest new console and Zavvi is the place. This console will not let you down as it is smaller and cheaper than the original PS3 slim. I have ordered games from Zavvi before and they have never let me down.

Still plenty of life left in it

I've only just picked up a PS3, but I'm glad I did as there is still a healthy future ahead for the platform, despite the imminent release of the PS4. Not only does the system have a strong backlog of games, but it also has the PS+ service (bundled with the console deal I got, but also available as a free trial) that gives subscribers access to free games every month. While the new Super Slim model has received criticism over its build quality, I haven't found this to be an issue. The sliding disc tray isn't quite as snazzy as the auto disc feeder in previous models, but it does the job well enough. Otherwise the console looks nice and trim, adding a very functional, yet fairly discreet black box to your media setup.

The setup of the PS is very straight forward and in no time my son was up and running with it. I was glad to see there parental controls and found this very straight forward to set. The only criticism I would have is that it is so good my son doesn't want to come off it!

PS3 new model

Zavvi was excellent in dealing with the delivery of the PS3: New Sony Playstation 3 Slim Console (500 GB) - Black. I have been a little disappointed with the new look of the 500GB PS3. The new machine has a sliding door at the top right to left to open, and is very flimsy and seems that no care was put into the design.

Playstation 3 500gb, wow what a great console, unlike the previous ps2 the ps3 uses hdmi connection or av depending on what your tv has. It doesn't come with a hdmi lead so you will need to purchase one however if you wish to connect via, av the ps3 comes with a av cable. The controller is more advanced and is wireless and added bonus. Ps3 comes with a controller, USB cable, av cable, power cable, definitely worth the proce and with free 3 selected games. 500gb storage will store your many games and downloads. If you like your football, fifa 13 is a must its a great game with great graphics.

Better than I expected

I kept reading that the latest PS3 felt flimsy and cheaply made. To me it seems well made and the famous sliding cover for the disc works nicely. Only real criticism is that (so far as I can tell) there is absolutely no indication of whether the PS3 has finished loading its software and is ready to use, or not. Why not just use an egg timer symbol like everybody else?

PS3 and Zavvi - an excellent pairing!

My original 60GB PS3 gave up after 5 years of usage, so this was a replacement. It is so much smaller...and quieter....than the old 'fax machine'. Large capacity drive is great too. I don't mind the new top-loading design, but whether or not it is sturdy enough to last for years remains to be seen. A really pleasant experience.

Playstation 3 500gb

I previously owned a Nintendo Wii. My new requirements were a gamer with a load of storage and good motion ability as I enjoy playing sport and fitness games. The Ps3 has a mass of storage and for an extra few pounds I bought the Move and Eye. The whole system is so easy to set up. There is so much you can do such as streaming movies, creating photos and music librarys, browsing the web. There is a large supply of games to try before you buy. Comes with catch up TV which is great and you can play dvd and blu ray discs. Fantastic entertainment all in one place for a very reasonable price.

Just gets better

I bought the new super Sony Playstation 3 Slim Console to replace my launch day 60gb Ps3 "fat one" which decided to get the yellow light of death!! The super slim if far superior to my old "fat one" in every way. More storage for a start, it's a lot quieter, less power hungry and massively more compact! Great service from Zavvi, I ordered during the Christmas holidays and it arrived three days later. Can't ask better than that.
