ps3 slimAfter nearly three years in the market place, the Sony Playstation 3 is not only getting a price drop, but a smaller version of itself.

In what is possibly the worst kept secret in video game history, the long-rumored PS3 Slim has been announced at a game show in Germany.  Priced at $299 in the USA, with a September 1st release date, the new version of the system is not only physically smaller, but it also is 34 percent lighter and draws 34 percent less power.

The new system will come with a 120 GB hard drive and all of the features of the original version such as Wi-Fi, Blu-ray player.  One new feature is if you hook the PS3 in to your Sony Bravia via an HDMI cable, they will operate together, and you will be able to control the PS3 from your TV remote, and if you turn off your TV, the Playstation will turn off at the same time.

As we said, the price in the USA will be $299, elsehwere in the world it will be 299 Euros, $499 AUD, $629 NZD and 29,980 yen.  Releases around the world are either Sept. 1st or Sept. 3rd.

This could be just what the doctor ordered for Sony as the PS3 has been lagging very far behind in this iteration of the console war.  One of the things consumers always noted was the pricing, so not only do you finally get a price cut, but you get a better version.
