PS3 Superslim: No slot loading disc drive

When I did that launch video a few days back, I never realized actually what was different in this PS3 version. Did you know that this PS3 lacks a slot loading disc drive? This picture from the recent Engadget review should be enough proof. Since I'm not reviewing this (nor will Sony send me a review unit), you should look at their review.

I'm personally not a fan of this new PS3 model. Visually, it looks very odd. It looks nothing like the older model PS3's, and those grid lines across the top is not good. Makes the PS3 logo harder to read. In the Engadget review, they mention that the new PS3 feels very cheap, and I can agree with that. I don't think that you have to actually review the unit to get the gist of how it feels. Of course, you can gather your own opinion. Click here to see Engadget's image gallery.
