My original PS3 was almost silent. I hope the PS3 slim is silent. I know for the sure the new PS3 makes noise, as I know someone who has one. But i'm not getting one of those.
After the YLOD of my original PS3 I repaired it and sold it on, and decided to wait for the PS4. It's been about 1 year now, I can't wait for PS4, and with the news of Gran Turismo 6, i've just picked up a little used PS3 from Ebay, the MW3 pack 320GB. I opted for this model, as I don't like the look on the latest PS3 shape, as it looks cheap. Along with Gran Turismo 6, i'll get to play The Last of Us, which i really want to play. Once the console arrives, I'll get to play MW3, as I wanted to check that out too. Time to put the PS2 back in its box, and return to HD gaming.
Get your ear plugs out...the noise the drive makes while playing MW3 is fookin LOUD.
