Default I give you the PS3 Slim

http://www.newsarama.com/games/08091....html#comments

According to Newsarama Sony is coming out with a PS3 Slim which is about 33% more slim than the orignal and also comes with a 120 GB hard drive. Also it is only going to be $299 as well. Also the old style is going down to $299 as well.

My thoughts on it are I will be able to play God of War 3 when it comes out and also a few other games that came out for it that I wanted to play but the price was way too high for me to get.

The best of it all is that a guy I used to talk to said that there was no way that the PS3 would ever go down in price so arrogantly. Now I think about that and just smile since he is a huge Wii fan and everything else is just trash (Xbox 360, PS3, ect.). I wish I could see the look on his face now.

According to the article the PS3 Slim comes out the first week of September but the price decrease for the orignal model is supposed to be taking the price cut as of today (August 19, 2009).

Ugh, I am SOOOO glad I don't play console games and have to constantly keep up with the latest and greatest platform system. The "slim" is usually their system before a Playstation 4 comes out. Nice the price is finally coming down, but let me know when they are $50 so I can get a Blu-ray dvd player! lol

I don't believe it will be backwards compatible.
