Maybe what you heard is a rumour, i have the 80gb version myself.Hope that helps.

Give it some space at the back you should be fine. If your a very heavy gamer there are cooling kits available also.

manu where do you get these rumours - i really would like to see that website :lol:

anyway the my ps3 is workign pretty well for some time - my friends is over a year old - and he got it from the US when that model was even launched in India. And if something is brought in India from a valid sony dealership with bill and warranty - sony can be sued in consumer court if they cannot repair it.:indifferent14:

The new 80GB PS3 available in India right now is the latest available model & its doesnt have any problem!

Since Sony doesnt have repairing center for PS3 in India, Sony India gives new replacement PS3 in case of any hardware failures/problems. I know this as recently one of my friend got it.

80GB PS3 (Killzone Bundle - Killzone 2 game is free) is available for around Rs.23500 (with Sony India warranty) here in Bangalore.

I was planning to get a PS3 from US but dropped the plan since the retailers with whom my cousin checked up mentioned a new model is being launched soon, they recommended him to hold on to the purchase....they also mentioned the new one will be launched at a reduced price.Not sure if Sony has officially released any news on this though.

First off , I will say this is still a RUMOUR but here is the news:

Sony plans to constrain availability of the 80GB PS3 in the next couple of months, leaving more 160GB models on store shelves. The idea is to then sell through a good amount of the 160GB model, leaving Sony ready to launch the PS3 Slim at a lower price point in the fall. No details were given on what that new price point will be.

I believe they are even planning for slim version which might hit the shelves soon. Other than that,the currently available PS3s are fine and should operate fine when properly setup. You also have the MGS4,KZ2 bundle now for 400$ in the US now,i guess its at Best buy.
