Best Answer

When the PS3 was first released it cost 599 US dollars and only a limited number were produced. This was outrageous to most as a console had never been sold for that much, ever. Another model of PS3 was quickly introduced after a few months costing only 499 US dollars.

Which is cheaper in price the new PS3 or the old PS3?

The new ps3 is a bit more expensive, but they've lowered the price of the original to 299$, but, if you sign up for the Sony credit card, you get 100$ off the purchase of a ps3, slim or original. I think it's ironic because now I can get a ps3 for 199$ when I paid 250 for my Wii. And 500$ for my ps3, but I have to say it's well worth the money.

What is the original price of a coat if the new price is 18.00 with 15 percent off?

Yes, there are a few minor differences between the two. The original PS3 takes up a lot more energy to run than the slim PS3 does. Also the original PS3 has a much larger and noisier fan than the slim PS3. However, there is no difference in the preformance of either version.
