More Fuel to The Fire

According to Engadget some more evidence is available that the slim PlayStation 3 exists. Specifically, this recently released K-Mart ad:



Also K-Mart and Sears online websites are now taking pre-orders for the console.

Now unless at this point someone has made a royal screwup in two stores, this is definitely going to happen, just have to wait for an announcement from Sony today so that it's absolutely proven it's coming.

It's a reality, it hit BBC 30 minutes ago that Sony officially announced the console at GamesCom.

Couldn't ask for more and if you think about it, one of Sony's worst kept secrets has also been a great marketing campaign for them and it hasn't cost them big bucks to do it.

I still say they could have easily put in BC and the extra ports. Not about to give up my "fatty" any time soon. But I am keen to see what the price drop will be. Finally, Sony gonna take back its Godfather position!

I think the slim is ugly lol. Im a fanboy to an extent, but its ugly and there is no denying it. I should save my comments for seeing it in person because i said the same thing about PSP Go till i got to play it.

I think i should go to the store and buy another fatty before they are gone.

Well a quick check around some Canadian retailers websites shows they dropped the price today, both Futureshop and Best Buy have dropped their prices to $299 Canadian and the 160GB is now $399. Still waiting for The Source, Zellers and Wal-Mart to do the same although The Source and Wal-Mart lately around here only carry 160GB models anyway and Zellers only had 1 or 2 80GB's left.

EDIT: After studying the Futureshop listing some more, there even continuing the deal they have had going where you receive a copy of MotorStorm: Pacific Rift with the purchase of an 80GB console. So for $299 you get the console and a half decent game to boot.

Im guessing 160GB is going a 100 down, but not 299. It would be nice if they keep that one around and keep it at the higher price. Give people a chance to buy the nice model.

Sony official announcement said "starting tomorrow" however Bestbuy and pretty much all the other stores have their 30 day price match gurentee, so why even both just go ahead and drop it today.

Well Engadget got their hands on a unit today and they have a wonderful photo of the console.



They also confirmed the hard drive is swappable and that from the pictures the power supply appears to be internal, not external as many thought it would be. Also the power and eject buttoms require you to click them like a mouse, they are no longer touch sensitive. Overall not as bad looking as some of the Sony shots made it look like although I still wouldn't buy one.

I think they can get slimmer to be honest. Wouldnt be surprised if a slimmer of the slim came out in like 2 years, maybe sooner. Thats what 2011? So yeah i can still stick with PS4 announcement at 2012. Being Sony that means it wont be out before 2014 and it will be leaked in 2011 haha. Would be a good cover up to just announce another slim, people would be like "oh well thats nice. "

All Rock Band sets for PlayStation have always included a USB hub which turns one USB port into 4 since PlayStation Rock Band sets work on the PlayStation 2 as well which of course only has 2 USB ports, unsure about Guitar Hero but 3 models of PlayStation 3 already exist (40GB, current 80GB console (one existed at another time with 4 USB ports), 160GB) with only 2 USB ports so it is a problem they already took care of.
