Took it back today they were out of AC3 bundles sadly however allowed me to take Black ops 2 with a lesser bundle and pay a small difference...Thus far new one seems rock solid so far.

The system probably got too hot.

Nope cold, I live in mass it was 22f outside and about 65 in it also sits on an open table not inside a cabinet or anything dumb like that. Also when said issues occurred it was on for less then 5 minutes each time.

Even if you take your ultra-slim back to Gamestop, they will only replace it with the same product or any other new PS3 they can sell you. So, if you don't like the ultra-slim and you're also suspicious of the slim, it looks like your only option is to trade in the ultra-slim, lose more money and revert to a refurbished fat PS3. The ultra-slim blows IMO.

game freezes have nothing to do with the hardware, it's the games, just like how New Vegas froze like crazy when it first came out, after all the game updates/patches, it worked fine.

My slim works 100% fine since my Oct 2012 purchase. I'm sorry for Mr Foxhound, but for others, take into consideration that some have had great experiences with the Super Slim. Compared to earlier models, it runs cooler, quieter, uses less power, and I prefer the slide disc tray, as you can keep it clean and dust it. The slide tray also has the advantage that you will never have a disc stick in the slot feed.

you're better off buying a PS4 if you care about these exclusive titles. If you care about the non-exclusive titles, you're better off buying an Xbox One because it's cheaper. 80 26 minutes ago
