PlayStation Slim owners - Feedback required!

44 Replies 743 Views Created 23-11-2011

Those of you that are lucky enough to own a PlayStation Slim, when you bought it, you may or may not have noticed a guide that was included in the box, 'The Quick Start Guide'

 

 

 

  So, what we want to know is...

 

    - Do you know what it is? Have you read it?
    - If yes what did you like about it? What did you dislike?
    - What would you improve about it?
    - Should it take another form such as digital etc...
    - And any other feedback they'd like to give.

 

 

Any feedback would be gratefully received!

 

Much love, Vissy <3

*looks under the bed at PS3 box*

Nope, not got that in mine, only the instruction manual. But then I didn't need to look at the instructions to connect my Spectrum all those years ago when I was about 7 so I'm sure I can ''quick start'' my new Slim (my second PS3).

The only time I ever need the instructions is for those awful flat pack furnitures you get from Argos, that fall down anyway :D

With any electronic gadget the fun is in learning yourself, and by being able to notice that cables are shaped differently for a reason, and what a power button icon looks like ;)

 

 

EDIT: I do miss the demo discs you used to get with the PS1 & 2 :(

Personally I found the First-boot screen to be more than sufficient. All you really need to know is how to connect your controller. The rest is common sense, or explained on screen.

This is pretty annoying if you ask me. Everything that's wrong (not saying it's bad, I love it) with the PS3 or has been wrong or features people really want. And yet they are asking about a manual inside the box. How about making stuff easier like the new deactivation site were there is a button to deactivate a single PS3, yet it doesn't work and also you can't deactivate your video service. Maybe when stuff like that is sorted, then you can start improving manuals that probably 90% of people don't even read.


 

First off... great post. Sony should start concentrating on things that really matter; but that's a different department. This department that's debating whether to include the quick start up guide; shouldn't be considering it at all because the PlayStation features, change all the time, same goes for the telephone numbers. So it would be impossible to update the manual once the consumer has it. you could have simple set up instructions printed directly on the back of the PlayStation box. I like the idea of going into the XMB and looking at the manual from there, cos it's updated all the time and you don't have a hard time dealing with translations and copyright instructions.

A manual you say.........hmmm.. I probably stuck it straight underneath the PS3 to keep it cool(air gap) due to my phat overheating all  the time.

Didn't need to use as I know what goes where but in terms of new users the Quick Start Guide would seem essential. Much simpler to understand and follow than a whopping multi-language instruction book. I'm not a fan of digital forms of instructions or set-up guides as they seems an unnecessary extra step just to set up a games console. Of course as new services & features are added to the XMB, an equally as simple digital guide would allow you to make new owners aware of what PS3 has to offer on an more current basis but it shouldn't replace the boxed Guide.

I never read instructions. Plus, I had the fat PS3 before so I knew all I needed to know.

Quick start guide is boring small print, something you get from a bank or from taking out a loan, no one in the UK that I know off reads the small print, that's why we have these programs called watchdog, Rip Off Briton, Don't get done, get Dom and Filthy Rotten Scoundrels on the telly.

The cracking noise is normal on the slim models. It's just the case expanding and contracting.

I also checked my 160GB and didn't find it, does it depend on the model? CECH-2503A is my model.
