hkps3l Sony Computer Entertainment Hong Kong sent out a press bulletin proudly announcing they are going to host the global launch party for the slim PlayStation 3. The system arrives in stores on September 1st everywhere, but Japan. Due to time zone differences Hong Kong will be the first region to sell the system.


Sony is celebrating the slim PS3’s launch with a party in Causeway Bay, one of Hong Kong’s busiest shopping districts. The event starts at 6PM and goes on past 12AM when the console goes on sale.

    There were some talks about PlayStation brand being produced in Brazil as an expansion through Latin America, but the news faded away. Press said it was going to start in the middle of this year and it was backed by official documents (agreement with government to produce in the free zone). Should I expect national slim PS3 to appear soon at a store near me?

    Ok, I guess nobody will be able to say anything about this.

    What an ad, that guy looks as toned as the guy who waves the Wii motion plus…

    I think Angelababy being there would spike up some sales :)
