PS3 Slim, $299. It just got real.

http://www.ps3center.net/news/3513/g...lly-announced/

PS3 Slim, $299, 299 euros, 29,000 yen. 32 per cent smaller, 36 per cent lighter, consumes 34 per cent less power than the original.

Can't wait to see some pictures of it. So, I guess the overarching question is this - what does this mean for the console war?

I see the PS3 competing with MS in the US this holiday for 2nd, getting a solid 2nd place finish in Europe, and outright dominating Japan(FF13 + PS3 Slim = game over).

Microsoft is going to drop the price of the elite to match the 299 slim.
Sony will have a good christmas but they are going to have quite a road ahead of them
to win america, 8million+ units will be tough but a hell of a lot more doable with
a less bloated price tag.

Well actually the new console is losing one more thing besides some bulk and weight, no Linux can be installed on the new Slim console, although I have to say it's not a huge loss since it was a very crippled install anyway and something very few PlayStation 3 users probably ever took advantage of.

hopefully Sony gets more buyers, they probably will unless MS comes up with some better deal for the 360

Hmm, not sure.. they have just announced that they are going to remove the HD cables from the elite. not even component cables. the elites will only be shipped with SD composite cables. Read up

Also eurogamer reports that the arcade's price is going to be lifted to 159.99 pounds... Read up

most likely will, they will wanna still have the cheaper console, so there's no doubting that they will do it sooner or later

The Arcade will sit at it's current price and the Elite will be dropped to 299, phasing
out the pro SKU in the process.

This is what will be happening with 360. (talked to a MS rep at gamestop and they updated their computers and what not to this already)

360 Elite will take place of the Pro (like stated) for the 299 price to combat the PS3.
360 Arcade will be staying where its at
MS will no longer offer HD cables at all in any of their packages, all will only come with composite cables (so no nagging PS3 for doing that)

In othe words, PS3 is the all around better deal now and MS secured that fact.
