Sony Playstation 3 80GB Metal Gear Solid Bundle
The 80GB Sony PS3 model CECHE01 is far and away the best PS3 systems to have come out. While the 60GB models came equipped with the Emotion Engine and were purely hardware based PS2 emulation, they lacked the crispness and smoothing an 80GB with Software based emulation could provide.
They also came equipped with WiFi, a bay for Flash Cards, SD cards, MiniSD cards, and 4 USB ports as apposed to 2 ports on other models. Put these bonuses together and you have the ultimate PS3 model.
In my opinion the new slim PS3s are garbage. Sony decided that in order to save more money, they would remove more and more hardware from the console with each revision; first to go was the PS2 CPU (Emotion Engine) on the first 80GB model. They left the PS2 GPU on there to maintain backwards compatibility, which is a highly sought after feature that Sony pushed heavily when the Playstation 3 was first announced. Among the changes made to the 'slim' model was the removal of the ability to install another operating system alongside the main system software. The ONLY bonus to having a 'slim' model is that the chipsets are now running at 65nm as opposed to 90nm and they consume less power.
At least Sony has it all right when it comes to the Playstation Network being free which is a HUGE plus.
All in all I am extremely happy with my recent purchase of the PS3 MGS4 Bundle.Read full review
