    Video: PS3 Slim Standing Test, PlayStation 3 Slim Stand Hits

    Pictured below is the PlayStation 3 Slim's new stand, which costs a whopping $24 if you plan to get one when it's available.

    It works by laying flat on whatever surface you deem fit, and then it holds your new gaming console upright.

    The folks over at Kotaku (linked above) have done a simple PS3 Slim standing test, to see if the fancy accessory is a necessity or not.

    To quote stephentotilo, who shared the video on YouTube:

    "Can the PlayStation 3 Slim stand without its fancy stand? Being a vertical-system guy, I had to test this."

    Check out the video below for the result...

    I was wondering if it could stand up by itself. I would conclude it can't... I wouldn't call that standing...
    Anyway, it's an interesting video nonetheless.

    Cheers

    Indeed.. at $24 for the stand if I didn't know better I'd think Bobby Kotick was behind pricing it.

    WHAT?? this is the most stupid test I've ever seen... man.. look it stands... OK I KNOW .. If you try hard enough you can make a pencil stand but is it stable... no.. it also has a little wobble but is it secure.. no..!!

    Best comment ever, it was my exact thought after I read the posted article...

    At least it won't wobble

    Sony

    I think Sony must include the base.

    I can't believe they would charge $24 for that stand

    You can bet there will be some better looking, more functional, CHEAPER third parts stands to hit the market soon if sony thinks they can tax people that hard for something so cheap

    that's freaking 1/12th the price of the system!!!!

    there are ways you can make your own stand out of materials way less than $24. if all else fails, use duct tape on the bottom of the slim ps3 to make it more secure. I'm kidding haha, however i did do the same with my surround sound system so it wouldn't fall off my stand like it always did.

    $24 bucks? really? might as well keep the slim ps3 in the vertical position.

    well, considering the psp GO! will be around the same price point as the ps3 now, you'd think they would learn.
