New Slim PlayStation 3 Revealed


While we are still sulking no one bothered to send us to Tokyo Game Show, (we would have even worn company t-shirts to go there) – Sony just unveiled a lighter, smaller slim PS3 model, which is about 20% smaller and 25% lighter than the current PS3. Arguably, that’s not much of a game-changer since the device isn’t portable, but this new slim PS3 comes in two colours, with 250GB and 500GB storage (upgraded from 160GB and 320GB). There are also limited edition bundles, like the Uncharted 3 bundle or a free voucher for content for Dust 514. Though it’s questionable that it will make it here on our shores.


The design of the new PS3 looks great, with the PS2-like lines making an appearance back on the top, adding to the streamlining. One thing is for sure, the PS3 looks great in your living room. There’s no news yet about when it will arrive in India, but going by recent trends, it should be here very soon. Stay tuned to our feeds, and we’ll fill you in on the same.
