PlayStation 3 Slim In Stores on September 1st
We all know deep in our hearts that it was coming, but none of us was sure if it would really come this soon! Yep, I’m talking about the recently announced, long-rumoured PlayStation 3 Slim (no, this is not the official name).
Sony has done it with PlayStation, PlayStation 2 and now with PlayStation 3 – slimming down the bulk from the initial release models.
PS3 Slim will have a 120GB HDD drive (not sure if it’s upgradable), 2 USB ports and the same powerful processors that come in the original PS3. One thing that is to be noticed is the addition of bitstreaming Dolby TrueHD and DTS-HD Master Audio, something which you won’t find in the PS3. One drawback of PS3 Slim is that it won’t have backwards compatibility with PS2 games.
The console war seems to get more inetersting with the new PS3 prices announced by Sony. The current PS3 and the coming PS3 Slim, both will have a price tag of $299 on them.
And oh yeah, Sony is also rebranding PlayStation with a new logo and new box-art. Will this all help Sony win the gaming console war? Do share your views in the comments.
The time has come where I see myself slowly getting into gaming, which means, the Games section is being revived and you readers can expect more gaming-related posts in the coming few days.
