PS3 Slim Eh? Tempting…

With Sony still handily losing the console race by a wide margin, they finally figured that enough was enough, and so we have the PS3 slim.

It’s sleeker, it’s smaller, and more importantly, it’s cheaper, knocking the price down to $300. Now, that amount of money is a very good deal for a Blu-ray player AND a video game system, but I still believe that if Blu-ray hasn’t really been adopted by the masses now, it never will. It’s like bundling a SNES with a Betamax or something. Alright, maybe not that extreme, but it isn’t as significant as the DVD playing PS2 was.

So is it worth it? This is primarily aimed at consumers like me, who have an Xbox 360 and like it (when it works), but also want to play games like Uncharted 2 and God of War 3. But other than that? I literally can’t see another reason to buy it. I’m not going to start spending $30 a pop on Blu-rays, and the graphics difference is just not significant whatsoever. I’m not trying to be an Xbox fanboy here, I just don’t see the system being worth an additional $300 purchase. If I was someone without any system, or only a Wii, I might start considering a PS3 more. But I guess at that point it really depends on your franchise tastes.  Halo and Gears vs. Uncharted and GOW are really the only significant battles left now that Metal Gear Solid and Final Fantasy are cross-platform.

Will you buy one now?
