Sony Announces PS3 Slim, Coming in the First Week of September For £249, $299, €299 and ¥29,980

Labels: , , ,

Finally! Sony has announced the long rumoured PS3 Slim! At GamesCom, Kaz Hirai announced that it will be hitting shelves in the first week of September for €299, $299, and 29,980 yen. Along with this news the current PS3's on the shelves will also drop in price. I'll be updating this post when I get more information, more prices, and, of course, a picture.

Update: So, the PS3 Slim was announced and it is what Kaz Hirai said it is, "It's a PS3, but slimmer." This means no backwards functionality. The PS3 Slim is 33% smaller, 36% lighter, and uses 34% less power; it will contain a 120GB HDD inside. And yes, I have to say it - damn, it's ugly! The PS3 Slim will prevent users from installing other Operating Systems onto their PS3. This means no Linux OS, which means I'll be getting the fat one. I've come across more photos below, it looks better at these angles. By the way, if you live in the US and you can't wait until tomorrow to purchase a $299 USD PS3, you can head over to Amazon - but you'll have to wait for the delivery, of course.
