According to Sony, the PS3 Slim had a release date in the first week of September. But now, some store managers look really eager to sell PS3 Slims before the launch date. According to Gizmodo and Engadget, there are PS3 Slims for anyone to grab and take home for the price of $300.
So either this is the same thing that happened with the Nintendo DS Lite or some managers want some quick sales. So fellow Floridians, go grab a PS3 Slim before the world wide shortage comes up.
