Slim PS3

Coming in September 33% small and a price drop of $100 across the pond, makes it an even more attractive offer than an XBOX

Re: Slim PS3

I'll be keeping mine on which you can install Linux, but for people that can't even get a signature link to work in the forums; it will be ideal Wink Tongue

And of course we'll get an equivalent price cut here in the UK .. as we always get the same as the USA .. errrm.

£250 in the UK. That price goes for the current 80Gb and the new slim version as of today.

Re: Slim PS3

I read about the £50 reduction just after I posted that.
Not bad, I thought the UK wasn't going to get a reduction at all.
Must have been frustrating if you've just bought one though.
I bought mine at the beginning of the year (not that I use it much) - the 160Gb model.
Was only about 30 quid more than the 80Gb, with a few more games .. so I went for that one.
At the time I wondered why you'd need all that HD space, but my curiosity was quickly answered when every game I seemed to insert wanted to download a 200-500Mb patch.
It makes we wonder how many times CS face the question of "I've just bought my son/daughter a new console and we've gone over our allowance, but we're not sure why" Smiley

Re: Slim PS3

Actually there are rumours of a 250Gb model coming out of the slim ps3 so will people be kicking themselves if it comes out just after they buy this one, maybe not. But it's true what strat says.

Re: Slim PS3

The price cut will be great for the PS3. More devs will want to develop for it...I hope.
I still have my launch ps3 and bought a 360 few months ago because no good games were coming out on the Ps3, hopefully now good games start coming sooner than later.

NEW PS3 WILL EAT YOUR LIFE, PLEDGES SONY
THE new Sony PS3 games console will suck more of your existence into a vortex of pointlessness than the Nintendo Wii and the X-Box put together, the company promised last night.

Re: Slim PS3

I'm sure any laptop type HDD can fit in the PS3 anyway so maybe it would be better searching for an HDD to go with a cheaper version PS3  Undecided
