As expected, Sony revealed its new PS3 Slim gaming console yesterday morning at the Gamescon European gaming conference. The unit is 1/3 the size of the current PS3, has a 120 GB hard drive and costs $299. It ships in the first week of September.
Also, despite no verification from Sony on this one, an FCC database digger has uncovered a 250 GB PS3 Slim. Sony hasn’t mentioned this larger capacity version but it exists and will probably launch sometime in the fall after the 120 GB PS3 Slim. The company even filed the product under the name Sand Company Enterprise in an attempt to keep it hidden from FCC snoopers. Looks like the plan didn’t work out so well.
