Here's why. While the slim might offer more disk space there are some discussions about it's better PS2 compatibility. That is not why I'd keep it. Ready? Some folk have trouble with HDMI to new HDTVs with the slim.
I have the first gen PS3 system for at least 4-5 years now without any issues really. Not a hardcore gamer so rarely used. However, I am constantly playing FPS now and getting back into it with XBox. Our local Game Stop is offeing a trade in of old PS3 for the new PS3 slim for just $125. My question is, is it worth upgrading? As I have pre ordered Battlefield 3 and MW3 for PS3 as I have more friends on PS3.
Also really just want to know if they fixed any issues with first gen that I am not aware of.
