Product description

Product Description

The newly redesigned PlayStation 3 is smaller and lighter than ever before; packed with all the gaming fun you'd expect from PlayStation but in a brand new case!

By redesigning the internal design architecture, and removing the disc-fed tray and replacing it with a sliding top-loading disk cover, the PS3 Super Slim is reduced in size by up to 25% compared to the current Slim PS3.

The PS3 12GB Super Slim is a home entertainment system in a discreet and sleek console that allows you to play Blu-Ray Discs, DVD's, Music CD's and watch TV through the BBC, ITV and Channel 4 iPlayer (Internet connection required).

Included in the box you'll find:

  • PS3 12GB Super Slim Console CECH-4003A
  • Wireless Dualshock 3 Controller
  • AC power cord
  • AV cable
  • USB cable
NOTE:If there is any issue with the console , please contact the PlayStation Support ( help@ukplaystation.com ) for any further assistance.

This is one of two UK models of Sony's third major version of its PS3 console. The main differences between the two models are the size of storage included (the majority of this review discusses that difference) and the price - this model's a lot cheaper, the cheapest PS3 yet.

What the two models have in common is that they are both significantly smaller and lighter than Sony's previous PS3 versions. They also have a top loading disc drive rather than a slot loading one (a button releases a catch so the cover of the drive slides aside, then you push it back in place after inserting the disc). Aside from that there are few major differences from the last generation - same number of USB ports (2), same outputs, no SACD or PS2 disc compatibility, etc . The reduction in size and weight is very welcome and although some may feel slot loading is cooler and marginally more convenient, it's not a big deal, and you can understand that by doing this they have been able to make the unit cheaper.

To deal with the differences, this model has a stated storage size of 12Gb, made up of flash memory. The other model has a stated storage size of 500Gb, this being hard drive storage. When I got my 12Gb PS3 I immediately downloaded the latest version of the system software, and after that I checked the storage size available according to the system. It said I had 9108MB left. (Why not 12Gb? Well the system software takes up some space)

So is it worth going for this model at a cheaper price? That will depend on how you want to use the PS3, and you should give it some careful thought before buying.

If you want to use your PS3 to store more than a very small amount of audio or video, this is definitely not a good choice for you. The storage space is too small for that.

I brought a used PS3 super slim in "very good condition".. there wasn't any marks or anything on the console itself and didn't have any cosmetic damage but who's cares about that.. as long as the console works.. well it doesn't! I also didn't even get a PS3 controller.. I got a Logitech remote that just about has the right buttons. It's temperamental on what it likes and doesn't.. It doesn't read half of my games? It will read battlefield 4.. but not hardline? And when loading apps the screen will just go black and I have to restart the whole system because it's frozen. Not what was offered, and I'm not happy.

Easy to set up and use, the only problem we've found so far is that it occasionally won't turn off properly, though that is a rare occurrence. Having a wireless controller makes it even better.
