Earlier we reported that Sony unveiled an update to its gaming consoles series: the PS3 Slim. Although it has been rumored for several months, Sony decided that the perfect place and time to release the new PS3 is this summer at GamesCon. We’re upset by the delay, but we’re OK now as we know that the console is coming in two weeks time. We wanted to clear this up as the PS3 Slim will be available for consumers in various markets.
According to Sony, the PS3 Slim will show up in North America and Europe on September 1 for $300, respectively €300. The new PS3 will also be available in Japan but on September 3. I repeat on September 3 for the Japanese, and it will cost ¥29,980. Now that we cleared this up, let us remind you its features.
The PS3 Slim will come packed with a 120GB HDD SATA, 2 x USB port, BRAVIA Sync via HDMI, no Linux and PS2 compatibility, PS3 Firmware 3.0, 32% less space, 34% less power, 36% lighter, Wireless DualShock 3 controller, and a Vertical Stand that will cost a mere $24. Let us know what do you think about the new PS3 Slim and if you’ll buy one in comments.
