PS3 Up Close

I got some pretty cool stuff for you here. Every once in a while you learn something or see something, and you just have to say “cool!”. This is one of those things. Just watch this video:

PS3 Up Close, Colours

Neat huh?

Power supply is inside the PS3. Confirmed.
Under the flap – memory card readers. This has always been an obvious conclusion, but now we’ve seen it. Confirmed.
You can turn on and off the PS3 with the middle controller button. Confirmed.
We’ve seen the controller’s triggers. But now you can see them in action. Nice trigger action!
Weight? 5kg or about 11 pounds.

But wait! There’s more! Supposedly the 60GB PS3 will have a shiny black finish with a chrome front. But the 20GB PS3 will be transparent black!

Click on these images. Especially the second one – you can see into the case! Uh, I forget where I got those images. If I’m stepping on any toes, please tell me and I’ll take them down.

    Judging from these pics, it is NOT (from my point of view) a working unit…


    Because the “Heatsinks” behind speak a different language than as silent as PSTwo AND Heatpipes…

    But nonetheless, I could be wrong…

    Man, that unit has suffered quite a lot… It is totally scratched and the writings are worn off… Even my PS2 (2001/2) isnt that demolished 😀 (well, I broke off the front off of the cd tray and a plastik nipple off the back…)

    Man… I eagerly await my shipment of FFXII to be played on the PS3 😛

    Man…..I want the 60gb version in clear plastic with the chrome accents !!! That would be awesome and different, but the glossy black is freakin awesome also. I’m getting the premium when it launches so i guess ill have the glossy black one. 🙂

    I can’t watch the video as I’m having problems with Quicktime. 🙁

    It just occured to me. I’ve heard that the 20GB will be clear but the 60GB will be opaque and shiny black. But the second photo is of the 60GB PS3, and it’s clear.

    I’ve noticed that. Very cool look 🙂 Only 78 more days until PS3 in the USA 🙂

    A view of the memory card readers

    The lid (and other plastic too) is obviously see-through.
