    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.

    Considering the 360 was barely outselling the Ps3 despite being LITERALLY HALF the price.... it certainly won't be outselling it now that the Ps3 will hit that $299 consumer sweet spot.

    How long until MS abandons the 360 like they did with the original xbox? I give it 6-8 months at most

    Failure?

    You do realize the 360 has sold at the worst rate of all 3 consoles, right?



    Google search the term "RROD". Now that's a true failure.

    ill let you know next time im having a trash talking party, it happens alot cause the 360's know how much better they are. thats why i keep the 360s away from each other by using my center channel as a buffer. when they get together it gets ugly.

    :rofl: if this is true, the only thing M$ will have left is their blank check to try and make every sony exclusive multiplatform. a more reliable system with an easily interchangeable HDD that can go above 300 gigs for the same price as a 360? you bet im going with the ps3 on that one. and a bunch of consumers will too.

    3rd place in what? A race where 360 had a year head start? LOL...look at the sales for Ps3's 2.5 years lifespan compared to 360's first 2.5 years. It's 360 that's in last place. Funny how ppl seem to disregard the fact that 360s been out an entire year longer.

    Yup, unfortunately for Microsoft, most of the big exclusives coming out on Ps3 are IPs that are owned by Sony.

    Gran Turismo, Uncharted, God of War, Ratchet and Clank, Twisted Metal, MAG, Heavy Rain..... those will never be on 360. Ever.

    Good luck MS. "Had a spark when you started but now you're just garbage". 360's been slowly dying since 2007. The Ps3 slim will be the final death blow to the RROD machine. :mamoru:

    And a BluRay player, and free Wifi, and Free online, and a free charger for the controller, and free bluetooth support.

    MS mindaswell just abandon the 360 like they did with the original Xbox and start planning their release of their next console.


    P.S.... what ever happened to that luxurious HD-DVD player for the 360?? :rofl: It's extinct, just like the 360 will soon be.

    i think what hes getting at is technically the 360 hasn't sold every single one of those units to households for a first time buyer. i work in retail and i have friends work at other retail chains and i can contest that 90% of arcade/core sales are RROD quick fixes. i ask everyone who buys one if they need a game and they uselly say "oh we already have games our xbox broke" and if they just say no i ask if they are replacing just to see if this wise tale is true and the amount of yes resposes are shocking... :eek3:

    i see his point but it was alil fanboy ish of him. :o
