Manufacturer’s Description

However, before everything else, the PS3 Slim is a powerful video game system.

The PlayStation-3 Slim comes equipped with the Nvidia graphics processor and IBM’s cell processor, giving the system the capability to perform over 2 trillion calculations every single second. This results in the PS3 Slim being nearly 40 times faster than its predecessor, the PS2. The PS3 Slim is an integrated with a high definition multimedia interface (HDMI) port, which gives the system the ability to deliver unconverted, uncompressed, high quality sound and digital picture via compatible high-definition projectors and TV’s.

Blu-Ray Is The Future

The games that are developed for the PS3 Slim are made in the Blue-Ray format, and are capable of holding 6 times the data of regular DVD’s. This increase in storage capacity, coupled with the incredible power of the graphics card and processor, results in a new generation of games that deliver a gaming experience never before seen. Also supported by the PS3 Slim are CD-RW’s, CD-ROM’s, DVD’s, DVD+R’s, DVD-R’s, and DVD-ROM’s.

Additionally, all software updates for the PS3 that include 2.20 and higher come with BD live support. This feature allows you to play BD-LIVE supported disks and connect to the net when playing disks that can support this particular format so that you can receive additional features. These features vary depending on the software being used.

Sensational Controller

People that are new to gaming move the controller by instinct while playing, despite the fact that such movements do not effect the game in any way. Sony was inspired by this tendency and proceeded to implement it into the controllers for the PS3 Slim. The new PS3 Slim controllers have motion detectors built in, allow you to control the game’s action by simply moving your hands while holding the controller. An example would be moving your hands side to side to steer the wheel of a car in a racing game.

Although the PlayStation-3 Slim controller strongly resembles the PlayStation-2’s dual-shock controller, it comes without the vibrating function, as it has proven to interfere with blue-tooth signals, which is the wireless technology that PS3 Slim controllers are based on. If your controller’s battery is low, you can connect it to a USB cable to recharge and continue playing while it’s recharging.
