Perhaps. I bought a PS3 Slim shortly after they were announced. I have yet to actually play a game on it though. In fact I remember when I took my PS3 to the counter to buy it the clerk asked me what games I was going to get with it. I was like, "Oh. Yeah. I need to get a game with this too."
So I ended up buying Pure
but thus far I've only used my PS3 for folding proteins and playing Blu-Ray movies.
