[The official new PS3, the PS3 Slim]
Announced at the Sony Gamescom in Germany, the Playstation 3 Slim will be sold for $300. It will include a 120GB hard drive, will be 32% smaller as well as 36% lighter than the current PlayStation 3, and will use 34% less power. It will launch in the first week of September worldwide.
As for the current 80GB PS3, the price will go down to $300, and the 160GB will now retail for $400. A new feature for the PS3 Slim will be a BRAVIA Sync feature were you can control the XMB of the PS3 with your Sony remote, as long as they are both connected via HDMI. Also, when your TV tuns off, your PS3 automatically turns off as well. Another thing, there will be a new PS3 logo.
So now you will now have the right to call the old PS3, the “PS3 Fat”.
Just so that you know, there will be 2 USB ports.
