Video: Inside PS3 Super / Ultra Slim, Internal Disassembly Pictures


81w ago - Following up on the PS3 super / ultra slim unboxing, first look, and HDD guide, today I've opened Sony's new console to see what is inside.

I've made a video of the disassembly, and some pictures of the new MSX-001 motherboard.

As you can see, there's a lot of modifications on this model: MB, BR drive, HDD emplacement and so on.

You can see the Blu-ray drive, very small than older BR drive.

PS: To remove the 2 glossy pieces, you just have to slide to the right like the PS3 fat.

According to pereb27, the new model features no RSX IHS (but still contains a Cell IHS) potentially meaning the end of the dreaded PS3 YLOD... it looks like Sony finally did something right.

Below are some PS3 super / ultra slim internal disassembly pictures and videos, as follows:

















Finally, here is a PlayStation 3 Super Slim Teardown Guide for those interested as well.

I know people that have never taken their consoles online for one reason or another, a 12gb model would suit those folks since they aren't really getting updates or dlc.
Believe me, will always have buyers for these models. The sony always trying to avoid informal trade, but damage a shot in the foot! but will know! Because the guy buys the old game alright does not need updating, but, and as the new games will do (after you buy the ps3 12GB external HD).

the 12GB model is just a flash memory chip, I think they didnt categorized that as a HDD.

But sure, I do buy a PS3 that is lower capacity, I bought mine 120gb preety much cheaper then add a few 30-40bucks for a 1TB Internal HDD. And whoala, 1TB PS3 that had the same price with 320GB model. Sony just did rip you up.

So Sony just told me I can buy a PS3 with 12GB with no HDD but then buy an HDD? Daffuq O.o $250-$300... Get a brand new one at GameStop for cheaper. >.
