SONY Playstation 3: Slim Version @ USD299!

First of all, let me just thank fellow blogger Ilhamology for giving the heads up on this very interesting piece of news. My wife and I have been stalling our decision to purchase a game console for months now. We came close to buying the 360 a couple of months ago but decided to wait in anticipation of some good news from Sony....and here it is ladies and gentlemen!
One must be tempted to read more when Sony announces a new slimmer version of the 120GB HDD PS3 (Yes, a 120GB PS3!!), a new motion-sensing controller technology (not-so-new to the 360 though!) and THE much anticipated price cut (from an astounding (USD600 to a mere USD299!!!) ALL at the same time!

Expected to be released in North America on 1st Sept '09, some online stores have been declaring that they'll start shipping by the 24th of August! Gosh, that's just days away!

Here are some interesting facts about this marvellous piece of technology:

  • PS3 Slim is 33 percent smaller and 36 percent lighter than the previous PS3 models.
  • PS3 Slim has new 45nm process manufactured Cell processor that runs at the same clock speed as the old 60nm processor. A smaller processor would be more power efficient and power consumption can be brought down by two-thirds which will reduce fan noise.
  • Sony has designed PS3 Slim to be used horizontally (as PS2 is used) UNLIKE the earlier PS3 models. However, Sony offers a $24 stand to hold the PS3 Slim vertically.

Can't wait for this to be released over here in Asia! We'll finally get to play all those games we've been yearning to try out!

Geek rules!
