Opinions on the PS3 super slim....
Thread DetailsLast Edited by CheapestGamer August 22, 2015 at 02:15 AM
I've been using one for a little over a year now. To me the system feels lighter and cheaper than the regular slim. But maybe I'm a bit jaded since the controller that came with the system I'm using got screwed up just by trying to charge it using the supplied USB to mini USB cable that comes with every system.
I don't know if it was the connector that was too narrow or what, but it got all sorts of screwed up and took more force than was usually necessary to insert the cable into the connector.
I tried two seperate Sony cables, the one that came with the system and one from a Sony HDMI/charging cable two pack. Neither seemed to fit in the connector without giving it an extra shove.
So within six months the controller wouldn't even charge and the connector was bent on it. I contact Sony and they want me to ship it in on my dime even though it's in warranty.
Now the system itself is making a squealing or fluttering sound when I go to stop certain game discs(GTA V, Midway Arcade Origins and Epic Mickey 2). It doesn't do it if I let the game slow down or stop by sitting the XMB on the friends list portion for 30 seconds to a minute. I already got rid of EM2 because of the fluttering sound.
Sad thing is I'm anal retentive when it comes to taking care of my electronics n my stuff in general, so this sound the discs are making is pissing me off because the system is clean and well ventilated(it's out on a table with nothing around it). I guess it's just that the super slims are a piece of crap or at least this one is.
I wonder if the constant freezing issues a little over a year ago with GTA V/Online have anything to do with the noises the system makes when trying to stop discs. It locked up quite a bit for MONTHS during the time when apparently Rockstar couldn't figure out WTF was wrong that was causing it.
Anyone else have one of these systems? If so, what model and any issues? Mine is I believe a 4001B.
