    I am pretty sure I remember them stating that you can, they mentioned on the 12GB model that once you install a hard drive the 12GB portion that is built in is no longer usable as long as there is a drive installed, so there has to be a way...

    Ok good, I just don't see anyway of doing it in the pictures that's all. Seems odd.

    Just saying that's Walmart's Anniversary bundle and that sale ends tomorrow. Meaning that the PS3 Bundle in your link is only available from September 14th to September 20th and then it will be gone. I wondering if Walmart/Best Buy/etc will lower the PS3 160GB slims now to move them out of stock.

    Based on the unboxing video, I say the new disc load system sucks. Long live slots.

    And the price went up by $20.

    The video shows that you can open it manually or mechanically, the eject button also opens it.
    I quite like the look of it... Minus the glossy sections (gross fingerprint magnets), but the disk open tray thing does look a bit flimsy..

    Good thing you can open it manually in case opening it mechanically doesn't work anymore.

    I'm pretty sure the current slims will see a price drop or various "value added" inclusions to unload whatever is left of the old stocks when the SS hits retail

    I like it, I want one My slim looks like a fat boy in comparison.
    Going off what we know, there is nothing to suggest the super slim being prone to failure? So for the size alone I should upgrade?

    new disc load system could be problematic.

    The one thing I give the original Wii props on is how smooth and quiet its disc loading slot is compared to the PlayStation's, I hope with the PS4 (or Orbis or what every they call it) they put nicer mechanics inside if they stick with the disc loading slot (which I hope they do!).

    I love it. I think my ONLY complaint is the stupid grill looking thing. I wish they would've kept the glossy look all the way around and it would've been perfect.

    Remember that i'm going to die is the best way I know to avoid trap of thinking you have something to lose, you're already naked, there's no reason not to follow your heart.

    I ordered the Walmart bundle yesterday...honestly am quiet disappointed that North America is not getting the cheaper 12GB option, I really do not understand that logic at all.

    The Walmart deal was too good to pass up seeing as my 80GB Motorstorm fat died last month. I already own all 3 Uncharted games so can turn around and sell them for 10-15 a piece. I will end up with a $175 taxes in PS3 which is damn hard to beat

    Good deal. I was hoping for a 12gb for the ss ps3 @ 149.99 so I can use it primarily as a blu ray for my bedroom

    Hope my slim doesn't decide to kick the can ANY time soon. Also feel like they could have stuck with the same HDD sizes they have now and up the wireless to N, and up the BD drive speed. But what can you do? Still regret not having the original beast
