    And still keep your current fat (whatever HD size) PS3? Or is it just a waste of money? I might pick up a slim just for the hell of it use that for say blurays only (since it runs quieter and the fat PS3 can get kinda loud at times) and my fat for games :naughty: Other than that, is there any other benefit of owning 2 PS3s on one TV setup?

    Its not bad looking, looks a lot like the PS2 slim.

    Will pick up one later on when they are even cheaper for the main room. Move the fat to the bedroom for PS1/2, upscale dvd, and media center purposes.

    i was thinking about getting one for the bedroom just because of the media center purpose. All my movies are know located on my main computer and I just stream everything wirelessly to ps3/xbox. My dvd collection has since been sold off so picking one up would be nice for the bedroom.

    I say if you dont yet have a bluray player and want one but hated the bulky look of the fat PS3 to use as a standalone...well the slim changes that. Its sleek enoough to be used as a standalone player as well. Plus it can be a backup in case your fat dies and has to be sent out.

    Thats why im thinking about getting a slim just to use for movies and the fat for games.

    If you already have a ps3 and you aren't trading it in, why would you give up backwards compatibility?

    My fat ps3 is perfect and nice and quite. I actually like the look of it too. The fact that theres no linux and it will likely be harder to hack the slim is crappy too. So no slim jims for me

    If they are 16:9 capable it's not that bad. Progressive scan helps a lot too, GOW 2 looked great on my HD screen.
