Default PS3 slim loads games faster than fats....

http://www.tomsguide.com/us/PS3-Slim...news-4539.html

However, blu-ray movie load times increased.

I think its a good trade off since standalones are so much cheaper.

--Not sure why this couldn't go in one of the other Slim threads we have already.

Doesn't it about break even (or in the fats favor) for game play when the slim is a slower boot?

I don't buy it myself until the fat get a firmware update. As for the games, it may be a difference in the cache size of the HDD. Sony's FAT basically increases loading times slightly with larger caches.

Either way, if this holds up, we're looking at a mere 3 second difference. Big whoop.

Firmware shouldn't matter considering the slim shipped with 2.80, right?

3.0 added some slim revisions to the old models so who knows what else is revised.
