5.0 out of 5 stars Smart move by Sony, November 3, 2012

= Fun:5.0 out of 5 stars 
This review is from: PS3 500 GB Assassin's Creed III Bundle (Video Game)
Sony did exactly what should be done to update a product, they looked at the biggest issues - 1.) The previous console had a tendency to overheat and 2.) If id did overheat, it was impossible to get your game out before sending it in for repair. To counter these problems they - 1.) Made a lighter, smaller, more efficient system and 2.) Made a spring operated release for the disc drive. After the obvious fixes, they outfitted it with a massive hard drive (500 GB) and bundled it with one of the most anticipated games of the year. All this for a reasonable price tag of $299.99. What more could you ask for? The console is amazing, much better (in my opinion) than the slim. It runs AC3 flawlessly and is whisper quiet. I would highly recommend this bundle as a first time buy or an upgrade. It is without a doubt worth every penny.

Pros: Virtually everything. Nice design, huge hard drive, new disc drive, smaller, quieter, ect.

Cons: Still comes with ONLY the composite video/audio cable, no HDMI.

What more could I ask for? Let's see:

No glossy finish on any part of the console.
An HDMI cable.
A disc drive cover that isn't so cheap it feels like it will break.
A reasonable price - $300 is too much to ask for a 6 year old console even with a big hard drive and a game included. This should have been $200, $250 tops but even that would have been pushing it.

It's time for Sony and Microsoft to realize that the PS3 and 360 are last gen now and cut the price accordingly. Wii U is out in a little over a week, and for the same price or just $50 more than this insanely overpriced PS3 bundle you can get one. Terrible pricing by Sony.
