New PS3 Slim for September

Sony Computer Entertainment CEO Kaz Hirai unveiled at a press conference in Cologne, Germany, a brand new Playstation 3 Slim addition. New design, new logo, new price and to be released very very soon.

The newer Slim model is hitting stores September 1st in North America for $299 and Europe for around 299 Euros. The PS3 Slim will boast the same features and functions as the larger model, but will be 33% smaller, 36% lighter and come equipped with a 120GB hard drive - now that is impressive - wouldn’t you agree?

Sony says that to achieve the new form factor, the internal design architecture of the new PS3 system has been completely redesigned “from the main semiconductors and power supply unit to the cooling mechanism.” The PS3 Slim is also powered by a new 45nm version of the Cell processor, which runs at the same speed as the 60nm processor in the larger PS3 but is smaller and more energy efficient. Overall the power consumption has been cut by two-thirds with a dramatic reduction in fan noise.

Im sure that even those with a larger PS3 are drooling at the sleeker, slimmer model - who couldn’t resist that?
