If nothing else, it's certainly something to behold.
Unfortunately we didn't get a chance to video the slot loading drive in the PS3, but there isn't much to write about it. Anyone who's ever had a slot loading laptop knows the deal. It was a bit loud, but did the trick.
The port config, as we all well know by now.
That's a lot of logos.
The thing about the PS3, it's definitely optimized for heat. Without looking too much like the Mac cheesegrater, this thing is really set up for unconstricted airflow -- a far cry from its original, smoother design
. During our play time, the unit remained relatively cool -- as cool, if not cooler than the Xbox 360.
The eject and power buttons aren't tactile, but they are touch sensitive.
Here we've got the CF, SD / miniSD, and Memory Stick slots, as well as the four USB ports, hard drive indicator, and wireless indicator.
We're not 100% sure, but we think this is where the hard drive's at. We understand it may be removable, more on that shortly.
