Sony PS3 Slim, Price Cut Confirmed
The long-rumored PS3 Slim console and price drop have finally been confirmed today at GDC Europe 09 at Cologne, Germany. The much-maligned console is now available at most retailers for $300 USD for the 80GB version and the Slim will be available on September 1 for the same price.
The PS3 slim looks, as you'd expect, kind of like a diet-PS3, except for the part where it's still full-featured only priced $100 less. Make that 33 percent smaller, 36 percent lighter, roughly as tall, but thinner, with a matte finish along the top and glossy sides.
