New Super Slim PS3 to be released 12th October – but only has 12GB of memory…on September 19th, 2012 at 3:00 pm
Considering that the majority of PS3 games require mandatory installs, (with some taking up as much as 4-5GB), one has to ask what’s the point as users will have to keep un-installing and re-installing their games, as those with a PS3 know is a tedious process.
Granted Sony is also releasing a separate dedicated 250GB hard drive that can be installed in the machine, although once installed the console’s internal 12GB storage will no longer be accessible.
Also at £185 it’s far too much. With only 12GB of memory, and considering you can now get a PS3 Slim for only a fraction more than that, £99-£120 would have been far more reasonable.
There will be a 500GB version of the Super Slim costing £249.99, but again it’s just far too much given that the next generation is just around the corner and that the Nintendo WiiU is only a month or so away from launch.
I guess Sony still haven’t learned anything from overpricing their products. With that in mind I’d expect the PS4 to around the £400+ price mark.
