    Default New superslim PS3 Unveiled

    At Sony’s Tokyo Game Show press conference, the much-rumored new model of PlayStation 3 was confirmed. And while there are a couple of pictures in the original story we wrote, we now have many more images to show off.

    First, the new PS3 in its classic black color:

    Sleeker and slimmer, the new PS3 comes in "charcoal black," but Japan gets the super-special "classic white" option. Sony says that the internal volume and weight of the new PS3 is less than half of the original system. It's 20 percent and 25 percent less volume/weight compared to the current PS3 Slim.

    Different regions will see different versions of the systems along with different prices.

    North America

    250GB - $269 (Uncharted 3/Dust 514 Bundle) - September 25th
    500GB - $299 - October 30th

    Europe and PAL Territories

    Flash Memory 12GB - 229 Euros, AUD $299.95, NZD $399.95 - October 12th (September 27th AU, October 18th NZ)
    500GB - 299 Euros, AUD $399.95, NZD $519.95 - September 28th (September 27th ANZ)


    250GB - 24,900 Yen - October 4th
    500GB - 29,800 Yen - October 4th

    What's that Uncharted 3/Dust 514 bundle all about? Well, you get Uncharted 3: Drake's Deception and a voucher for more than $30 worth of bonus content for Dust 514.

    If my slim keeps giving me issues I might replace it with one of these, as long as I can copy all my saves and stuff over.

    Default New superslim PS3 Unveiled

    My slim has been getting louder and louder over the past few days, and making weird "clacking" noises. So it's definitely time I buy a new PS3 before it goes, this announcement was perfect news .

    And can I just say, the new slim looks damn sexy!

    I think I've just found my new Blue-Ray player. As always, patience has paid off.

    Don't think there is really any comparisons out yet.
    the best I can find atm is: The new PS3 Slim will be 50% smaller than the original PlayStation 3 console, and 25% smaller than the first version of the PS3 Slim.
    and of course the 2 different sizes 500gb and 12gb.
