Default PS3 Slim Real; $299

The rumors are true, the Slim is real and costs $299. 120GB hard drive, uses approx. 1/3 less power and is approx. 1/3 smaller.

Don't know much else.

(Mods merge into another thread if necessary.)

Edit: Links.

Looks to be matte black now instead of piano black.

Too bad it's still curved on top.

Also, while a reduction in power consumption is nice, according to my limited math skills, it looks like it'll still use 6-7 times as much juice as a standalone while playing movies.

So where can we preorder these babies? I just gave my local gamestop a call and they said they aren't accepting preorders on the PS3 Slim at this time.

I just have a strong feeling that these might be sold out/hard to find when they launch in september, and I'd really like to pick one up.

You will be able to pick one up at SonyStyle.com for $199 with a Sony credit card. It's not on their site yet, but it will be.
