So far I love Uncharted 2. It really does feel and look cinematic. So far the story is mundane, but I'm not really playing it for the richness of its narrative. It can get frustrating at time as well, but so far I have almost no qualms about buying it outright instead of just renting it (as I did with the first Uncharted game).

Folding works fine. It's part of the OS, and they're very slightly tried to build around it, so it probably will be with them for a while.
Besides the lack of PS2 compatibility, I think the biggest complaint people have had is only having 2 USB ports. Controllers are wireless, but since you charge them by plugging them in, and use those same ports for thumb drive transfers or keyboard/camera accessories, it might require juggling or a generic $15 USB extender.
Otherwise, I think the Slim is a better deal in all ways that matter. It puts out less heat and less fan noise, and it supposedly uses less energy. The system runs at the same speed, and you're not going to notice a difference between while using them. I haven't seen anyone mention issues of something working on one model and not the other, so far.
The Slim has a bigger hard drive than most old PS3 models, and the hard drive is supposed to be easier to replace and upgrade - though there really shouldn't be any need to do that.
If you find a deep discount, there's nothing wrong with the old model, but the Slim is a definite improvement.
Phew, fantastic! I tried doing a search for "ps2newz.net" on some other popular video game forums but I couldn't find anything (probably because they're all petty and won't even allow the mention of another site's name). Thanks, Guru.
