Just bought one with a friend from the Croydon Store today and they still had 28 left in stock when they checked on the system

PLAYSTATION 3 Slim--32% smaller, 36% lighter and consuming 34% less power than the original!

Please Note! PS3 Slim is not compatible with PlayStation 2 games.

The internal design architecture of the PS3 Slim, from the main semiconductors and power supply unit to the cooling mechanism, has been completely redesigned, achieving a much slimmer and lighter body. Compared to the very first PS3 model with 60GB HDD, the internal volume as well as its thickness and weight are trimmed down to approximately two-thirds.

Furthermore, power consumption is also cut to two-thirds, helping to reduce fan noise. While inheriting the sleek curved body design of the original model, the form factor of the PS3 Slim features a new meticulous design with textured surface finish, giving an all-new impression and a casual look.

PS3 Slim continues to offer the cutting-edge features and functions of the original models, such as the ability to enjoy high-definition Blu-ray disc movies and games, as well as various content and services downloadable through the network. PS3 Slim's storage size has increased from 80GB to 120GB, and with the extra capacity users will be able to store more games, music, photos, videos as well as various content and services available through PlayStation Network.

Having more than 27 million registered accounts around the world, PlayStation Network offers more than 15,000 pieces of digital content, ranging from game titles, trailers, and demos to more than 15,000 movies and TV shows via PlayStation Store. PlayStation Network members can also download free applications, such as PlayStation Home, a ground-breaking 3D social gaming community available on PS3 that allows users to interact, communicate and share gaming experiences, as well as Life with PlayStation, which offers users various news and information on a TV monitor in the living room by connecting the PS3 to the network.

PS3 system software update version 3.00
The updated system software adds various user-friendly features such as the "What's New" screen, where users can quickly browse the new items available in PlayStation Store as well as their recently played games directly on the XMB (XrossMediaBar), with shortcuts to each piece of content. PS3 will evolve continuously with the system software updates, further improving the operability and enhancing the user experience available through the network. PS3 owners will be able to enjoy new features by simply updating the PS3 system software to version 3.00 via the "System Update" function on the XMB.
BRAVIA Sync feature
The PS3 Slim is also equipped with the BRAVIA Sync feature. By connecting the PS3 Slim and a BRAVIA TV with the HDMI cable, users are able to directly operate the XMB on PS3 using the TV remote control. Other functions include "System Standby" that will automatically turn off the PS3 when the BRAVIA TV is turned off.
Vertical Stand for PS3 Slim (CECH-2000 series)
By utilising the Vertical Stand (sold separately), users will be able to set the PS3 Slim in vertical position, making it easier to place the PS3 anywhere at home.

Another great feature of the "PS3 Slim"... the original model doesn't need a stand!

Why didn't they throw one in the retail package? I mean, how much can a piece of plastic cost to manufacturer? It is not as if they have to add any more packaging!

£229.98 including VAT is an odd price too. Best buy this before the Standard VAT Rate increases on New Year's Day :)

But at costco you get a much better returns service that will support you after your warranty expires ;-) plus this is for members who are already a member at costco

thats why the deals cold not everyone is a costco member (which in itself cost money),

if i wanted to buy something like a ps3 i probably won't return it, and hope i dont have to use the warranty at all ;)

The warranty is best dealt with Sony anyway, tesco is cheaper, and points, and most people have the odd £10 off £50 order around at the moment.

Don't know why people would buy at a more expensive place that requires a membership..

It is supposed to be a games console, but Sony lost the plot with the design. They are not too sure if it is a expensive blueray player, internet browser, media player, games console using expensive unrequired blueray disks.

I sense from the wording of your sentence that you feel that the use of Blu-ray discs is unnecessary.

It has never been marketing as a (video) "games console".

Sony state it is an "entertainment system"; either a "computer entertainment system" or a "home entertainment system".

When it was released it was one of the cheaper Blu-ray disc players.

WTF! Its a media server and has always been marketed as such. So much more than just a simple games console.
