The Sony PlayStation 3 Slim 360GB console comes with a fingerprint, scratch resistant matte finish unlike the original. Although much emphasis was placed on weight and size reduction, it still packs some bulk; however, it’s much easier to carry about than its predecessor. Its reduction in weight and size also meant that some things like extra USB ports had to be sacrificed. There is also a decrease in the number of vents, which means that the Sony PlayStation 3 Slim is a lot quieter and cooler than the original. The Sony PlayStation 3 Slim also comes with a BD-ROM drive that helps to protect your disc even when it’s moved about. Unlike the original that featured the onetime touch buttons for power and eject, the Playstation 3 Slim features real, clickable matte buttons, which are more responsive and easier to handle.
You can easily control your PS3 using your Sony TV remote, but first you’d have to adjust the HDMI control settings. Once done, you would be able to monitor easily video playback as well as navigate the XMB menu. The 320 GB hard disk allows users to store more movies, video games, music files than older models.
