French Retailer: PS3 Slim will launch at €299 Friday, 07 Aug 2009 16:30 So, we have some details from a French retailer on the PS3 Slim. Number one, the PS3 Slim is confirmed according to an interview with a French retailer on Jeux Video Network When asked about the PS3 Slim, the retailer responded: "Yes, the PS3 Slim is a reality, it will soon emerge." The retailer was apparently informed about the console only a week ago from wholesalers and it's all very secretive. A release date is not confirmed, but it's expected for September. They haven't yet seen what the console actually looks like, the size of its harddrive is also unconfirmed, and possible bundles have yet to be discussed. However, it's surprising to hear that the PS3 Slim's price will be €299 from launch. The dealer believes that since retailers are aware of this price, they are chopping their current PS3 stock to €299 prematurely in order to make room for the Slim. This would perhaps explain the Spanish and Italian offers we've spotted online. Source: gamezine.co.uk For those who don't know, that's a €100 price drop for Europe. Ps3 is currently €399 over there, so expect that America will also see a significant $100 price drop as well putting the Ps3 Slim at $299 USD. There is also a strong rumor circling around the internet that the 360 has a large homosexual user base in the male 18-32 age group which would explain why 360 owners enjoy their sausage party chat feature on XBL. CNN estimates that atleast 25% of 360 owners are indeed homosexuals.
