PostSubject: PS3 Slim Released! 8/24/09   August 24th 2009, 8:56 pm

Sony (SCEE) shared their game plan at GamesCom in Cologne earlier today; I'll get straight to the point... Here's what's good:

  1. The PS3 Slim is real and it's looking slick... That's it up to your left and there are more photos below. It's said the Slim is 33% smaller, 36% lighter, and power consumption is down by 34%. The Slim will be shipped with a 120GB hard drive and packs the same features as the current PS3. That means PS2 backwards compatibility hasn't been reintroduced. Expect the Slim to hit store shelves this September.
  2. Finally - a price drop! All PS3 models, including the Slim, will be $299 USD.
  3. Available September 1st, '09 - PS3 Firmware 3.00. Verbatim [Only admins are allowed to see this link]:
    • "What's New" The "Information Board" will be replaced with a "What's New" section, which allows you to enjoy interactive PlayStation news every time you start the PS3 system. Located under the PlayStation Network icon, "What's New" displays the latest and greatest game, video, PlayStation Network and PlayStation news and releases, as well as your recently played games, in a sleek, new animated format.
    • Status Indicator In the top right corner we've added an indicator bar, which displays your user icon, friend icon, the number of friends you have online and a small message icon to let you know if you have any new messages. The indicator also includes a scrolling ticker that features the latest news from PlayStation Network. In addition, when you press the PS button, the battery life indicator will no longer cover up the clock.
    • Friends List Now your PlayStation Network friends will appear in a slightly redesigned format on your Friends List. Also, messages will now be viewable from each of your friends' respective profiles.
    • PlayStation Store Shortcuts We've added a handy shortcut icon to the PlayStation Store under both the Game and Video categories so you can access the latest content quickly and easily.
    • Personalization Personalize your PS3 with new dynamic custom themes and avatars. Dynamic themes as well as free and premium avatars will be available through PlayStation Store. A dynamic theme takes your screen to a whole new level as it incorporates animated objects into the background.
    • Trophies Showcasing your hard earned trophies just got better. Update 3.00 gives game developers the ability to modify how they display trophies for add-on content. Base and add-on game trophies will continue to be combined into a single list so you can see where you stand in a game as a whole. Within that list, trophies will be broken out into subcategories-base trophies and add-on trophies-that way, you can easily view the percentage of your base game trophy collection, and separately track your trophy progress in add-on packs. Look for this enhancement to be included in upcoming games.

That's it for now. See you on PSN!

I actually don't like it. I like the gloss and I like the touch buttons on mine.

The only thing i don't like about it is that it is a button to reject the games instead of a finger touch thing.
