The Rumors are True! The PS3 Slim is Here!

Well, it’s finally official!  The long rumored PS3 Slim and $100 price cut was announced today at the GamesCom conference in Cologne, Germany.  The PS3 Slim was officially announced with a retail date of Septmeber 1st and a price tag of $299.  The price tag for the currently available 80GB retail models also dropped to $299 effective today.  The new PS3 Slim will be 33% smaller and 36% lighter than its Big Brother.  It will still feature a 120GB HDD, built-in Wi-Fi and of course, the BEST Blu-ray player in the world.  It loses, however, the backwards compatibility with PS2 titles, which should not be a surprise to anyone, and the ability to be formatted with Linux.  The pre-order for the new PS3 Slim went up today everywhere.  Order yours today!

Use the Amazon pre-order link below and select which PS3 system you want to order.  You can chose between the current 80GB system, the new 120GB Slim model and the 160GB system that is bundled with Uncharted: Drake’s Fortune.  The choice is yours!  And best of all…1% of all your total purchase amount gets donated directly to St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital.  So help make a difference in the life of a child and get the BEST price on a PS3 with no tax and no shipping charges (unless you live within the state of WA).  Thanks for your continued support!
