Sony preps PS3 with old-school design
Sony is set to release a third design of its PlayStation 3 console, with a higher storage capacity and a top-loading disc tray.
The unannounced PS3 - spotted in testing labs in Brazil - will apparently touch down with a choice of three new storage capacities: 16GB, 250GB and 500GB, Brazilian site Tecnoblog reports.
The former is surely intended to compete with the 4GB Xbox 360 and as such will undoubtedly incorporate Flash storage instead of a hard drive.
The latest design also ditches Sony's slot-load optical drive and opts for a top-mounted drive with a slide-across lid like the slimline PS2. Old-school, baby.
The Japanese firm has yet to announce specifics, however word has it this will be Sony's big announcement at Gamescom in August. Stay tuned. ®
Mine is several years old without problems. But then I live in a clean house.
Blaming Sony their hardware can't clean itself when your lungs suffer the same problem is optimistic.
A Sony executive was quoted as saying "We're really going back to our old school roots with this new design. We're even restoring Other OS and PS2 backwards compatability," before collapsing on the floor in a heap of laughter.
Ah, smokers! Bunch of eye-wateringly foul-smelling pillocks who seem to enjoy pissing staggering sums of money up the wall to feed their drug addiction.
And a jolly good thing too! The UK needs the tax revenues. The shortened lifespans and agonising deaths are merely icing on the cake. Keep it up! (Just don't do it near me, please. I have enough problems with allergies as it is.)
...is to not subject your PS3 to a smoky environment. Computer kit, of whatever type, is generally not at home in such an atmosphere. Neither are most people come to that.
As an ex-smoker
I feel I should point out to the overly smug non smokers a few facts:
1) Fewer than 1 in 10 people who smoke develop lung cancer.
2) The majority of smokers who develop cancer go on to beat it.
Most smokers in the end die from some form of vascular disease often culminating in heart attack or stroke. Ironically these are the same illnesses which plague office workers (such as those in the IT industry *hint* *hint*) because of their general inactivity and traditionally poor diet.
