It's a Japanese version btw, a 320GB classic white slim PS3. Got it in late december 2010, so it's not too old.


I did mention that it was a slim PS3 :laughing:

Yo RD, would a vacuum basically designed for electronics be a better choice than compressed air in your opinion?

But yeah, like i said earlier, i just moved it around a little and it seemed to run cooler/stop making loud noises. So I was glad. What I do next is just to prevent any future issues.

This is the vacuum btw:

^ lol for some reason, i didnt see the "slim" part, but i saw everything else in that sentence :laughing:

idk how the slims are laid out on the insides, but if they are anything like the fat ones, then without taking the system apart, idk if that vacuum will even do anything useful, and it may be a waste of $50

that vacuum might work really well, but the areas in which the dust "hides" inside the system, that vacuum probably wont even be able to reach most of it unless you open it up

i blew the vents of my old ps3 with compressed air before i opened it, and i thought i did a good job because i couldnt see any dust around the vents or anything, but when i took my ps3 apart, there was still alotta dust under/on top of the black cover, on the bluray drive, and under the power supply which wasnt even touched from when i originally blew the vents out

so if you are willing to buy that vacuum, you might aswell just take the ps3 apart and clean it the right way just to make sure nothing bad happens in the future due to overheating, because like i said, since you dont have an american ps3, even if something bad does happen to it, sony most likely wouldnt be able to repair it since they dont have those type of replacement models to give to customers at their production center

the good thing is, if you decide to open it, the slim ps3's have less internal parts/ribbons that you could accidentally break than the fat ps3's, so opening it up isnt as big of risk imo..all you need is a screw driver and a mini screw driver and you should be good to go

so if nothing bad is happening right now since you moved it, you are probably good, but to extend its life expectancy, if it starts making noise again, then its probably time to be cleaned out

yea, i'm the same way with marvel. started with all those vs. games in the 90s, and eventually marvel vs capcom 2 which was probably my second favorite videogame of all-time...i think it was released in 2000. played that forever, and 10 years later, they finally announce a sequel! haha, so even though i don't play games nearly as much as i used to, i had to make an exception for this one

Picked up Dynasty Warriors 7 the other day. Played through 6 a while back and liked it even though (from what I read) it was the worst of the series. 7 is pretty fun, pretty much the same old beating the crap out of hundreds of people and waging war and whatnot. Big improvements graphically, with the character voices, the levels are more entertaining w/less repetition, and the fighting mechanics are much improved.

Always a good stress reliever and sometimes it just feels good to kill a couple of hundred people in a game. :laughing:

I've only played like a hour or so, but I absolute love using this guy:

New slimmer PS3 to be launched on September 25th, 2012.

50% smaller than the OG PHAT PS3 and 25% smaller than current slim PS3.

250GB and 500GB versions will be available for $270 and $300 respectively, both versions will come bundled with Uncharted 3 GOTY edition or Assasins Creed.

A non bundled 250GB version will sell for $249, but won't be available @ launch.

Also, a flash drive(12GB) version will be released in some regions. This will be like Microsoft's equivalent of their 4GB Xbox 360.

Will be released in black(worldwide) and classic white(probably only in Asia).

Anyone at all interested in buying one of these?
