To be honest, we all saw it coming.
The PS3 Slim rumours have had a massive effect on the Internet, forums wouldn’t stop talking about it, “leaked” pictures entered the Internet for people to debate over and it was even a “Trending Topic” on the popular social network “Twitter”, this being said, people were expecting Sony to unveil the mythical PS3 Slim, as Sony has quite a history for “slimming” down their consoles (which is the initial the reason why the rumours started).
After waiting what seemed like an eternity, Sony have finally come clean at this year’s GameCon event.
Said PS3 Slim will cost $299/299Euros and 29,980 yen and will include the same features and functions, with a 120GB hard drive. The Slim is 33 percent smaller and 36 percent lighter than the PS3 and will be available in the first week of September.
“It’s so Slim, that it won’t be able to stand vertically by itself (like the Slim PS2) so it’ll need a stand, sold separately for $24 in the US and 2,000 yen in Japan. ” Hmm.
Oh and all PS3’s will also be receiving the cut to this new $299/299Euro price…as of tomorrow. The consolse is to be priced at £249 in the United Kingdom.
