I'm looking at buying a PS3 and wondering if Sony will ever revise the hardware again. The easy answer is "no" since the PS4 is out, but the 2012 PS3 reviewed so poorly. Will Sony leave that hardware generation on such a low note?
That review is old, so it isn't as expensive as it used to be. If you can live with a top loader, then whats the problem? It plays ps3 games. If thats what you want out of it, it does a great job at doing just that!
And no, I doubt there will be another major revision.
Reading that review, I wonder if there's something amiss with my super-slim. They say it makes "zero noise" and "is without a doubt the quietest home console" they've heard. I only got mine a few months ago, and right from the start it was decidedly noisier than my fat 60 GB model ever was. Be it the disc drive or the fans, it's never what I'd call noiseless. I haven't had any performance issues though, so I don't know what to make of it.
