Sony PlayStations PS3 vs PS3 slim
PS3 and PS3 Slim are the last two versions of Sony PlayStation. PlayStation is a gaming console from Sony that has revolutionized the way video games are played. Since its launch, there have been many versions of PS, and the last, PS3 was launched in 2006. It was loved by gamers around the world and sold millions of units. Buoyed by its success, Sony launched PS3 slim in 2009 which was not only slimmer, but had some new features as well. It presented a pleasing dilemma in front of PS lovers as to which one to choose. Here is a comparison between the two gaming consoles.
Sleek and stylish
PS3 slim is imaginative in designing and looks beautiful at the outset. While PS3 looked nice in 2006, this is the age of slimmer and thinner devices. And this is where PS3 slim scores over PS3. Slim is 32% smaller than PS3 and one third in weight also.
Faster processor, better memory
The processor used in slim was developed in collaboration between Sony, Toshiba and IBM. This cell processor is much faster than that used in its elder brother. Internal storage capacity has also been improved and there are versions of slim that have 120GB and 250GB storage capacity.
Noiseless and a miser in consumption
Well, if you thought PS3 was quiet, you have got to see and use slim to believe it. It is virtually soundless and does not distract anyone with its presence. Not just this, slim cuts down electricity bills by more than 30% making it a better gaming device than its elder sibling.
Not having backward compatibility, it is disappointing for many gamers as they cannot play the games meant for PS2. PS3 is better in this regard as it is backward compatible. The absence of an infrared port is also irritating to many.
Though most of the gamers have lapped up the new PS3 slim, there are many who say that it is slower than PS3 when it comes to system booting and Loading of Blu-ray disc movies, but all agree that it is much faster when it comes to playing games. And this is what really matters.
Since every manufacturer comes up with a better version, it is only natural that PS3 slim is thinner and lighter than PS3. It also has a faster processor and consumes less electricity. The only drawback that gamers feel disappointed about is its inability to play games of PS2.
