PLAYSTATION 3 NEWS: PlayStation 3 Slims down for the Fall!

PlayStation 3 Slim

Look, look everyone it’s finally here!  In one of the worst kept secrets of the year, the PlayStation 3 “Slim” has been made official today.  Not only that but we have specs, pricing, release date and everything.  The rumors from early this year were correct, but the mock-ups not so much. But despite what all the gaming press is saying, the system is NOT officially called the PlayStation Slim! Though. Here are the highlights from the press release, the console will street September 1, with a 120 GB Hard Drive for the low price of $299.  If they include an HDMI cable in the box this will be a hard bargain to beat.  Because, let’s face it, while I love my 360  (that I just had to replace yesterday), by the time you buy the HD, Wi-Fi cable and Sign-up for X-Box Live you are spending almost $400 anyway.  This $299 price point, with these specs is what Sony should have launched with. But they couldn’t get beyond the Sony “Arrogance.”  The full press release is below.

Sony made the PSPGo official at their E3 Press Conference, here’s the official release complete with a ton of specs. Personally, I think the device looks like ugly, but that’s just me.
