PS3 Slim

Nowadays, people who loves gaming console would be very curious about Sony's plan to reveal it's PS3 Slim version. This would be an example of PS3 Slim (courtesy to Engadget).

It'll be out in the first week of September (September 1 in North America and Europe, September 3 for Japan), and will retail for $300 (or 300 Euro, or 29,980 Yen).

It will be available on 120 GB version but rumors said there will be 250 GB version too. It's smaller and lighter, has a 120GB HDD, and packs "all the same features" of the regular PS3 while consuming 34 percent less power and taking up 32 percent less space.

The new 3.0 firmware will be released concurrently with the PS3 slim, which should provide a breath of fresh air for existing machines. Other new features of the PS3 slim include BRAVIA Sync, which allows you to control the PS3 XMB over HDMI through your BRAVIA TV remote, and System Standby to shut off the PS3 when the BRAVIA TV is off. Sony also claims this new machine will run more quietly than existing PS3 systems, which is good news for people who like to watch movies or have conversations in the general vicinity of their game console.

  5. People buy ipods and iphones then pay monthly contracts or pay for music, videos etc but there has always been a stigma over the PS3 price point why? Even in comparing the xbox 360 which has no blu ray, pay for online play each year, no wireless and a small hard when based on facts the playstation 3 slim has always been the better console. Now, it's just going to be that much better. Game on!
