PS3 Slim Uses Half the Power of 'Fat' PlayStation 3 Console 400°

The Xbox 360 Elite, even with a price drop to $299, still struggles to compete feature-for-feature. The most glaring omission...

Let me be clear, the Red Ring Of Death is not occurring at the alarming rate as it was at launch, but as stated it's not a resolved issue... a design flaw.

In fairness to Microsoft, Sony is not doing too well at...
