Slim PlayStation 3 Set For September


imageIt’s official, Sony will release a slim version of the PlayStation 3 that’s 36% lighter, 33% smaller, and $100 cheaper in the first week of September.


The PS3 Slim has all of the current PS3 features (read: no backwards compatibility) and includes a 120 GB hard drive. Sony’s latest model will cost $299, €299, or 29,980 yen depending where you live.


Current PlayStation 3 models will drop down to $299 starting tomorrow, but those only have 80GB hard drives. These remnant models are guaranteed to drop even lower when the slim PS3 arrives in stores.
