PS3 Slim Officially Announced; Original PS3 To Receive Price Cut [Update]

PS3 Slim Announcement PS3 Slim Officially Announced; Original PS3 To Receive Price Cut [Update]

It looks like all of the rumors that were revolving around the internet came true today. Sony has officially announced the PS3 Slim.

The new PS3 slim will be available the first week of September and is going to retail for a ground-breaking $299.  The PS3 Slim will come with a 120GB hard drive, but it will be 33% smaller, 36% lighter, and has 34% less power consumption than it’s heavier counterpart, which I’m calling the PS3 Phat.

As for the original PS3′s price cut, Sony did not go into details as to how much the PS3 Phat will retail for, but we’ll be sure to report it as soon as the info is released.

[Update: We can confirm that the 80GB Playstation 3 will retail for $299, and the 160GB Playstation 3 for $399.]

[Update 2: Added an image gallery with pics of the PS3 Slim]

    Oh, YOU’RE calling it the PS3 phat? Trying to feel as if you patented the name and started it on the interwebz? Guess what: it’s been called PHAT for the PSP and PS2 after a slim came out. Stop blogging and hang yourself :D

    Really? I love when general comments are made and the “interwebz” is used as a source. If you want a voice, cite a source!

    Um…who the fuck is going to buy a 160 GB PS3 for 400 dollars when they can get a newer PS3 slim 120 gb for 300? Are the 80 and 160 going to be selling for $150, $50?

    Did you even read what I wrote, or did you just write that reply for the sake of replying and to provide the illusion that it was a “comeback”?

    I forgot, satire is completely lost when it comes to the internet. I’m well aware both the PSP & PS2 received the “PHAT” brand, even the Nintendo DS.

    C’mon boy, I’ve been at this game a long time.

    My point was, you came here to comment on our use of a term that “we” bloggers use and think we’re trying to change the world?

    Then the “hang yourself” comment, shows anger on your part and of course being the only person not to “get it”!

    Appreciate the comment tho ;)

    The internet is full of douches. It’s that simple. No one seems to understand sarcasm and humor. Just way too serious about everything. I say F it and enjoy it when it comes to the net :)

    There’s too many commotions with this article! Gosh some people can just be so harsh! HATERS! Anywho, I think this slim version of PS3 is a nice addition. It’s cheaper and slicker. I wish it has more gigs than 120 but this is perfect for starters! very neat! :D
