The cost of all this looks to be $299.99 – that should point to a UK price of Â£182.
Unfortunately we in the UK are used to being spanked with Brit tax so the PS3 Slim will prolly land somewhere between Â£199 – Â£240.
Just check out the 80GB PS3 over in the States at $399.99 when the UK version is Â£299.99
If you were thinking about getting a PS3 for the first time (or to replace a dead one) hold on for the Slim as it’ll be still cheaper than the 80GB PS3 as well as getting 40GB extra storage and the new skinny shape to name but a few good reasons.
MCV is reporting Sony might have an instrument-free version of the Beatles’ Rock Band under the SingStar name – naturally Sony are saying a definite no to this…….. we’ll see what appears on Sears’ or Kmart’s sites later
The PS3 Slim should be around on the 24th of August.
