    i could be wrong but it looks like the new one doesn't have the smooth slick finish. looks more like a dull matte finish. what do yall think?

    i don't have a ps3 but i might have to get myself one for christmas now.

    i wish they had made the top flat so you can put something on top of it, instead of being forced to have it on top of my satellite box.

    Ehh. I just noticed the matte. Very ps2-like. Doesn't really match the shape. The large one is big, but still looks sleek due to the design and finish.

    And is it just me or does it look like they only made the vertical depth thinner but the console got wider at the same time? (from front to back)

    Oh. I thought I read somewhere that you could purchase a vertical stand for around $30... and now... I've no idea where it might have been that I read that...
