Default PS3 Slim!!

Tuesday at the Sony conference in Cologne The new Playstation 3 Slim model was officially announced. Release date will be September 1st. It will have a 120gb hard drive, It wil be 36% lighter, 32% smaller and uses 34% less power to run. Priced at 299 it has dropped 100. The standard model, the 80gb, has also dropped but production on them stopped several months ago.

Now the same price as the elite I'd say that sales will start seriously rocketing for this machine.... looks pretty good too


If you shit in one hand and wish in the other we all know which one will fill up faster.

And as I walk in the valley of the shadow of death I will have no fear For I am the scariest mother f*cker in that goddamned valley!

Damn nature, You Scary!!!

Play.com are usually cheaper than the RRP. RRP dropped by €100. play.com are nearly always lower than that

Linux support has apparently been dropped.

That's a no-buy from me.

Got the normal PS3 day it was out. Probably end up getting this too though im not sure seeing as mine only ever seems to collect dust

Nyctophobia- Fear of the Dark Angel.

"No one ever spoke about of those two absent brothers. Their separate tragedies had seemed like aberrations. Had they, in fact, been warnings that no one had heeded?"

'Killing a man is like fucking, boy, only instead of giving life you take it. You experience the ecstasy of penetration as your warhead enters the enemy's belly and the shaft follows. You see the whites of his eyes roll inside the sockets of his helmet. You feel his knees give way beneath him and the weight of his faltering flesh draw down the point of your spear. Are you picturing this?'
'Yes, lord.'
'Is your dick hard yet?'
'No, lord.'
''What? You've got your spear in a man's guts and your dog isn't stiff? What are you, a woman?'

This is cool and all but the Ps3 slim has drop the backwards compatibility, no more ps2 for the ps3.

I'll still get it though just for God of War 3!
