Works the same as the old PS3, but not quite the same build quality
on April 15, 2014
I have mixed feelings about this new blue PS3. It does work, everything plays just fine on it, and it does everything exactly as the old versions of the PS3 did. But for some reason it just feels a little cheaply made. For as much as it's being sold for, it seems like either the build quality should be brought up or the price should be brought down.
The old PS3 was a thing of beauty. It was a beast (even the slim model which I had). But when I got this one and set it up, it just wasn't as nice. The blue color is cool, but the whole unit felt light weight and plasticy. Not like it's predecessor. This one almost feels like it's not built to last, but I sure hope I'm wrong. I've had it about 3 months now and it's working fine. I'm hoping I get the many years out of it like I did from my PS3 slim. Time will tell.
