It just doesn't sound like a smart business plan. I mean think about it, they offer something that isn't fantastic, improve it, and resell it back. Couldn't they have offered it like this at launch, instead of that giant?

That's pretty awesome sauce. Though...I prefer 360 over PS3, and having both of them at the same price seems pretty fail. XD I'd pay less for the PS3. Maybe $200, or $150. But not $300. I'd probably change my mind once PS3 had a better selection of games; the ones I love on PS3 are on other systems as well.

Now if I could only convince them to put The Last Guardian on 360...

how is it bad business?  That's just smart business.  They probably had the designs the whole time, and were just waiting for the sales to decrease to release the "New" version.  They did it with the original Playstation when they made the PSONE, they did it with the PS2, and now with the PS3.  They're bloody brilliant.  This is how they make their money.

Xbox and Wii should've taken a page outta their playbook and released improved versions

I just think it's a dick move for the people who bought the first.

Not really. Consoles move onto the next generation when technology has advanced enough.

You forgot one Teeny, Tiny thing about the Slim PS3.
IT DOESN'T HAVE BACKWARDS COMPATIBILITY WITH PS2 GAMES.
Also, I don't see why Sony doesn't make their shit slim to begin with.
PS1? Made a slim of that. PS2, that too. PSP, yup, TWICE, and now PS3.
I'm happy with my Chunky, original PS3.

Well that is a sad fact Sad It would be easier for me if i could keep PS2 at home and PS3 at my dorm. BUT my PS2 is still working so it ain't so big deal yet...i guess

Like, if I didn't have a PS3, and I wasn't interested in buying any PS2 games, then yeah, I would get it, but I have my PS3, and I still find myself buying PS2 games, such as MGS2 and 3, and I hope to get Shadow of the Colossus soon...
On that note, if they're gonna remove PS2 Compatibility from the slim, they should at least add a store where you can buy PS2 games.
