PS3 super-slim 500GB experiences anyone??

6 replies 806 views Edited Oct 14, 2012

HI, I'm wondering if anyone knows how the new PS3 super-slim works!?

 

Any noise, heat, etc? And does anyone know how it affect it to leave it on for 12 or more hours?

 

And is it possible to get it in Europe, or for instance get the PS3 Assassin's creed 3 bundle shipped over to Europe, if you buy it from ps3??

 

-Thanks

There are plenty of reviews on the internet on the superslim that you can look up and read. I don't think there would be an issue leaving it on for that long.

Europe should be getting its own version of the 500GB PS3, soon for 299 Euros...

i have been reading several reports on different sites about this thing having heating issues which i predicted would happen since this machine has absolutely no heatsink coverage on the GPU ram chips and i suspect that to be a real problem...

Got the AC Superslim bundle not too long ago. You will hear it a little louder since the disc drive isn't as built in to the console, but it runs cool for me. I went to a friends house and left it on because I thought I'd be right back. I ended up crashing the night and left it on for well over 12 hours. I came home and unpaused my game and it was running no issues.

Don't know if this matters much, but that's been my experience with it so far.

I bought a 500GB super slim PS3 on December 15th. Everything seems fine except that it's noticablly louder than my previous PS3 which was a 120GB PS3 slim.
