Sony announces PS3 Super Slim — a game changer?
The last four years have not been a walk in the park for Sony in terms of sales, especially in the LCD TV and gaming console department. In the hopes of steering things around for the PlayStation lineup, Sony has announced the PS3 Super Slim. But is this enough to turn the tides in their favor?
As its name implies, the Sony PS3 Super Slim (289.56 x 229.87 x 59.44mm) is the slimmer version of the PS3 Slim (289.56 x 289.56 x 64.77mm) from 2010. Besides touting a sexier body, the revamped PS3 will be released with 500GB and 12GB SSD versions (not available globally), which is the biggest and the smallest storage capacity in the PlayStation console’s history. The PS3 will also be available in 250GB model.
Of the three, the 250GB model of the PlayStation3 Super Slim will be the first to be made available for public consumption. This model will be sold starting the 25th of this month for $269.99 while the 12GB and 500GB versions will be retailed starting next month for $229.99 and $299.99 respectively.
