uhm... a slim helped PS1 and PS2 in sales A LOT more than any other game did. The game may move hardware for 2 weeks or 1 month maximum, but price cut boost can last for more than a year

Again, software sells hardware.

Playstation 1 and 2 were successful only because of their powerful lineup, to begin with. A console with 0 good games worths $0.

Maybe a single sytem seller game's effect is more subtle, but it is there for many years, while the price cut is there until the counterpricecut.

By innovating the experience & gameplay, offering and promising more and better software.

 

A Slim version's only selling point would be new price.



Ugh. More PS3 Slim talk. It's still an unfounded rumor until further notice. We might as well be discussing RE5 coming to the Wii while we're at it.

Please. It's all but confirmed. Pics of the motherboard, increased parts orders from China, various retail rumors (which are easily fakable, i'll grant, but they're all over the place), retailers being told to not expect more PS3 shipments in the immediate future, and the fact that Sony won't flat-out deny it (which companies almost always do, even if the thing definitely happens)

One of my guys on staff has a contact within Sony.  The slim is coming.   No verification if it is any of the mock ups we've seen thus far (though our contact did refute some of them outright) but the 18th will have its debut.   I didn't believe it until last week when our contact confirmed it.
