80GB PS3s to be Discontinued in Japan on August 9, PS3 Slim Announcement on August 18 -- Expected to Cost Around £260

Labels: , , , , , , ,

Tired of the PS3 Slim rumours yet? Well, here's a lot of things that could be taken as a hint towards a new PS3 Slim. According to the image above - that I can't read - the 80GB PS3 models in Japan are going to be discontinued starting on August 9th. This could give way to the future PS3 Slim. Waddaya think?

Moving along, it looks like the PS3 Slim announcement could come as early as August 18th at the GamesCom expo in Cologne, Germany. Now according to Telegraph, the PS3 Slim will come in two models, a 40GB / 80GB; it's expected to cost around £260 ($441 USD). Amazon already had their little fiasco with the PS3 Slim just a couple of days ago and they've just slashed $50 USD off of their 160GB PS3 bundle. Come on Sony, spill the beans already!

Update: According to Tech Radar, there are also rumours swirling around about a planned €100 ($144 USD) price drop for the 80GB model PS3 all across Europe on August 18th.
