Sony recently rolled out its latest games console – the Sony PlayStation 3 Super Slim. Compared to its PS3 counterpart, the new model boasts of a slimmer look and lighter weight compared to the PS3 Slim which was released in 2009. There are a number of things to watch out for before deciding to change your current gaming console. Here are some details on the redesign of the popular device.

Basic Specifications

The Sony PlayStation 3 Super Slim is 20% lighter compared to the PS3 Slim. It is 20% smaller as well. The device weighs only 2.1 kg. There are two main changes in the new device compared to its predecessor. First is the lighter and slimmer design. Second is the increased storage capacity. The SSD model has 12GB of storage space. You can opt to get the 250GB dedicated HDD to increase your total storage space. There is also the 500GB version. The price of the product will differ depending on the storage capacity although models will start at around $300 to $350.

You will find a couple of USB ports in front. Other connective capabilities include the component video interface and HDMI video interface, Ethernet and optical (SPDIF) audio. The package does not come with an HDMI cable, however. The disc tray is one of the biggest changes in the design. The top of the drive will slide open. This is controlled by a button in front. The former mechanism of the PS3 used touch control. Many users might be surprised with how the drive slides over the top of the console.

Using the Device

Sony PlayStation 3 Super SlimThe XMB or cross-media bar is still used in the operating system since most users are already familiar with it. Many experts speculate that the visual interface has a lot to do with the ease-of-navigation and popularity of Windows phones and Xbox 360 interface. When it comes to categorizing your files, everything works the same way. You can arrange the downloadable minis from the home cinema settings and games for PS One.

The Sony PlayStation 3 Super Slim is also a Blu-ray player. When it comes to gaming, expect to play the latest releases without any problems. The graphics is supported by Nvidia RSX GPU and the Cell processor with a speed of 3.2 GHz. Loading time is generally faster if you get the dedicated storage space. Compared to other powerful consoles in the market, the PS3 Super Slim still needs more improvement. Players, however, can expect great visuals and fluid images when gaming.

The Conclusion

The Sony PlayStation 3 Super Slim did not change much from the PS3 Slim. Those who own a PS3, however, might like to upgrade. It’s best to get the dedicated storage at 250GB or 500GB to enjoy faster loading time. Overall, the Sony PlayStation 3 Super Slim seems more like a conclusion to the PS3 series as more talks surface regarding the release of the PS4, which will be more powerful and aesthetic than the other top-selling consoles in the market today.
