We're going to see some amazing work over the next couple of years.

    As for the system blowing up from overheating, well, that's more the fault of the end user than the console itself. All electrical equipment run the risk of overheating if not stored in an open, well-ventilated place. All next-gen consoles, including Wii, suffer from this and it's not something the manufacturer can help.
    To be fair though the new slim ps3 was designed by satan himself to create the most ugly device ever thought of.

    You're always going to lose some sort of cosmetic quality when you sacrifice size but the fact it looks ugly doesn't stop it being a powerful machine. Just look at some of the games that little machine will be able to play; The Last Of Us, The Last Guardian, Two Souls, God of War, Dust 514, All-Star Battle Royale and Final Fantasy Versus XIII being just a small list of the exclusives coming to PS3 in 2012/2013.

    Exactly. Anyone who complains about the PS3 having 'too many games' is stupid and shouldn't be playing games, and instead be smacking their head against the walls of a padded room.

    Yeah GOW and TLOU are definitely on my PS3 radar for 2013. Beyond will propably be a rental for me though. But GOW and TLOU for PS3 and Gears Judgement for 360 will get plenty of play during that time (plus 3rd party).

    Fair enough Ive personally never had an issue with my controllers, but all my friends who have both Xbox and PS3 if their controllers have died it has nt been for a battery issue, its been just from over use or something

    Some people also abuse their controllers. Throwing them when they can't beat a boss and/or punching it when they die in some level.

    I think I seen the video on Youtube, where some guy stomped his controller because he spent 1 hour on a boss he just couldn't beat.
    Gaming on all platforms right now.

    When I was young, 13ish, I lived near this kid that was the only one to have a Nintendo at that time in our neighborhood. We would go over there and play Mario Bro's like a cult lol. The worst thing was when he would die, he would just toss his controller for the NES lol. He'd have an attitude towards the game, and a really bad demeanor. Same thing would happen in Mike Tyson's Punchout! lol. Lol

    I've spent over an hour on something I just couldn't do in a game, but I could never imagine throwing or taking frustration out on my controller!

    I did once with Modern Warfare 2. It was a really bad day that day I guess and I wanted to release some steam on something.

    switched on PS3 this morning after not having used it for a while.

    first up is a system update (4.21 i think), time passes and i then look on PSN to see if there is anything i want.

    InFamous 2, LBP2 and Motorstorm are the free games i think i'll have, add to that Jak trilogy along with Journey.

    5 hours later and i have Journey, Jak 1 and 2 downloaded with Jak 2 taking 12 minutes to install after its overly long download. shall see if the rest download during the night

    even when I bought the PS3, while I like it I thought it was ugly. I would rather have a bland style of a system that is boxy looking like a receiver or DVD player then this ugly looking PS3. it's ugly and there is no denying it. I mean, even the PS4 rumor picture looks better then the PS3. LOL

    Infamous 2 = 8 hours to download and 1 and a half hours to install and a further 10 mins to download and install 3 updates that the game needed before i could play.

    all that to find out it's not as good as InFamous
