Price will be $299, €299 for slim and current FAT models.August 18, 2009 at 9:30 pm #38329
Is there really a difference? (not in size and looks)
Looks cool thoughAugust 18, 2009 at 9:38 pm #38333PS3 TrophiesKeymaster
Not really, 34% less power usage. That maybe means a more quiet/cool console.August 18, 2009 at 9:44 pm #38335
Are they going to stop marketing the fat ps3 models? (i think not)August 18, 2009 at 9:47 pm #38337
I got this info from ign:
August 18, 2009 – The worst-kept secret in gaming is official: the PS3 slim is real. During its Gamescom press conference today in Germany, Sony announced the new system, which will retail for $299 US (or 299 Euros and 29,980 yen) and will hit shelves September 1, 2009.
What we understand of the system is very much in line with our guesstimates from yesterday. The new design has all of the same features of the current system, including WiFi, Bluetooth and whatnot. Our guys at the show say that it looks pretty much exactly the same as the current model, only smaller. It's 34 percent lighter, draws 34 percent less power and, most importantly, comes with a 120GB hard drive.
Oh, and as a bonus, the current system is dropping to $299 as of tomorrow (so don't buy one today).
The system measures 290 mm by 65 mm by 290 mm in terms of width, height and length, respectively, and includes a couple of new features. If you connect the unit to a Bravia TV via an HDMI cable, you'll be able to operate the XMB via your TV remote control. This feature is called Bravia Sync, and it also means that when you turn your TV off, the PS3 will automatically turn off as well. The PS3 also eliminated the “Install Other OS” feature that was on the previous run of PS3s.
The details were, err, slim from the show, but we'll update as soon as we have more information. For now, check out the gallery for more shots of the system.August 18, 2009 at 9:54 pm #38343W4RG34R3D_SN1P3RMember

GGGRRR!! i hate that damn word.. Guesstimate. How do you guess an estimate? they are both the same thing. Both are positive, making it a double positive, therefore equaling nothing. SO a guesstimate = nothing.
Now, this PS3 slim, SEXY!!! looks awesome. I would buy one just for decoration. And the price is solid. Now, no one has any excuse for not picking up a PS3.August 19, 2009 at 4:21 am #38542
