    The PS3 Slim was announced today at Gamescon in Germany. Many of the rumors were true, including the price drop and the very close release date.

    According to... well... Sony at Gamescon, the PS3 slim will cost $300 (or 300 euros (weird)) and will be available everywhere by September 1st (which means it could be available earlier).

    Is anyone else jumping on the PS3 bandwagon?

    If either of them price at under £200, I'll be getting one for Xmas. They need to snag a competitive price with X360s which will be between £150-200... If they can get it in that range, it's cheaper than the X360 Elite which will stand no chance in the run up to Christmas

    Yeah the bigger one will also be $299 or 299 euros, effective now.

    And I don't think they'll be dropping the price AGAIN by Christmas, I'm thinking that there are a lot of people frustrated with the 360's faults and switching to the PS3 slim due to the price cut. I know I might.

    Now that's interesting...wonder if there is a HUGE difference in specs from PS3 and PS3 Slim, excluding the fact that it's slimmer and $100 cheaper.
