Which loads games faster, PS3 Slim or phat?

Sony’s decision to trim down the size of the PlayStation 3,in both system scope and price, has succeeded in creating some serious momentum for themselves. However, as appealing as the system is aesthetically, the question remains…how does it functionality compare to its older, chunkier brother?

We may have the answer to that question, through a series of videos that compare the start-up and loading of PS3 titles in both the slim and regular versions of the system. Based on these videos, one could easily conclude that the original PS3 actually loads up games faster than its thinner counterpart, a conclusion that this site makes rather unabashedly.

It remains to be seen whether these conclusions are true; for now though, I will hang on to my original 60 GB backwards-compatible PS3 with a renewed sense of pride.
