PSXE Poll Update: The PS3 Slim May Be Imminent
So with all these rumors floating around concerning the very real possibility of a PS3 Slim, we wanted to know what our readers thought.
Well, it seems a great many of you are quite optimistic: the majority of you believe the PS3 Slim will be unveiled at some point this year, and it will come along with a price cut. And if you don't believe that, you think the PS3 Slim might be the real deal, but we won't be getting the benefit of a price drop. For our part, we believe the PS3 Slim is very real, although it may not be officially revealed until the Tokyo Game Show this fall. As for a price cut, we're not sure, but we believe there's a good chance that at least one of the PS3 models (whatever they may be) available for the holidays will be cheaper than $400. Earlier this year, we theorized that if there was to be a price cut, it would come with the arrival of a huge PS3 exclusive; inFamous is already gone, and next on the list would be Uncharted 2: Among Thieves. To have this title launch with a more attractively-priced PS3 would be absolutely gigantic for Sony, and if you toss a new, slimmer machine into the mix...well, that oughta have quite the impact.
But now we move to a topic that has been in the news a lot lately: the subject of motion sensing technology in video games. It has really come into the limelight since Sony and Microsoft unveiled their new plans for advanced motion sensing for the PS3 and 360, but not everyone is enamored with the idea. There have been conflicting theories between gamers and industry insiders alike, so what's your take? Let us know.
