If you’ve always wanted a PlayStation 3 but was never able to buy one, September 1 might be the best time to buy. The new Sony PlayStation 3 Slim will be hitting store shelves on September 1 and is 32% smaller, 36% lighter, and is 34% more energy efficient than the original PlayStation 3. Just how slim is it going to be? The measurements are approximately 290 × 65 × 290 mm (width × height × length). Aside from that, it’s got a built-in 120GB HDD, making it a better deal than the original PlayStation 3, which only has a 80GB HDD and is selling for the same price. Chances are, the original PlayStation 3 will be phased out as soon as all models are sold.
Amazon is accepting pre-orders for the PlayStation 3 Slim at $299.99. Chances are, prices will climb on the day of the release so you might want to look into pre-ordering one today.
