Slightly cheaper then the Amazon pre-order, plus I prefer Shopto as they deliver before release usually, and recorded.

NOW £229.95

Due for release 1st September.

PS3 Slim--32% smaller, 36% lighter and consuming 34% less power than the original, the PlayStation 3 Slim features video chat, internet access, digital photo viewing, and digital audio and video--making it likely to be the central component of your media set-up. First and foremost a powerful gaming console, the PlayStation 3 Slim gives high definition power to the most recent games releases, including Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 2, FIFA 10, Final Fantasy XIII, Metal Gear Solid 4, Uncharted 2: Among Thieves, Tekken 6, and Gran Turismo 5. The in-built Blu-ray disc player also provides capability for high definition home entertainment, supporting cinema-quality movie playback.

I only use Paypal with Shopto now.

Argh! £244? With 120gbhard drive? Not good for me (I already have a phat one) :-(

Cold because I am jealous :p
#5
Does that mean the prices of the Original PS3s will now (finally) drop?

Yes, by around £80 apparently (from the RRP)

Will there be any difference in functionality over the original PS3 or is it just a squished version?

The only real difference I can see is the inability of installing another OS. More info here: clicky

Sony have done this with every single console; release a large console then a 'slim' one.
The PS3 now just looks like a laptop that you can't open.

It was nothing to do with their servers getting hacked, plus they now accept paypal

just buy a 500gb one and put it in your self, bigger hard drive, and better looking console, these new ones look awful
#12
are they backwards compatible do they have the card reader ect ? or is it just a case of a slimmer model and more money for sony ;)
#13
Surely you'll be able to pick one up for the same price with a game at launch? Don't see the point of pre-ordering the console on it's own
#14
Why does the link ([COLOR="Red"]go to deal[/COLOR] button), go to an affiliate site before going to Shopto?

Thanks for the link :thumbsup:

Mine OS3 hides under the TV cabinet out of view so as long as nothing new in the Slim then I won't need to get upgrade-itis!
#16
omg just sold my phat one for £230 on fleabay - perfect timing I believe:thumbsup:

What do you all reckon the cheapest/best offer will be in the next few months?

Opps, heat added!

Nope, its basically the same as the 80GB model, apart from the difference listed in the 1st post.

Blasphemous

Good deal if you want a next generation console, the price is finally acceptable, and the built in wireless makes it the only option if your home internet doesn't have a wired outlet near your TV.

It doesn't look as nice in my opinion, but at least they kept the power supply internal and haven't dropped any features (that anyone cares about, being able to install a gimped Linux isn't really a feature in my book, however much I like it).

Of course this means the 360 will get a price drop soon, or they'll include wireless by default. If you're undecided you might want to wait.

Shame it looks so f**k ugly =(

I don't see the point in rushing to preorder at almost rrp with no games and before reviews are out honestly.
It's unlikely that these will be in short supply, after all its not a new console and not many 1st gen ps3 owners are going to see the point in making the switch.
I would be slightly tempted if it is super silent - the only problem i have with mine - but i'll wait for more juicy offers. And I'll go with amazon every time, from personal experience.

Main advantage of lighter weight: easier to carry from your US trip, saving over 50 pounds and not getting ripped off .

I personally never tend to see a massive drop from RRP when a console is first launched. What you need to look at is this is a drop from the original RRP of the original PS3, I reckon the best you will get on launch is a bundle with a game for £260 - £265.
#33
good price,but i would rather wipe my **** with a hedgehog than give shopto my credit card details again,took long enough to get my money back and ended up cancelling my credit card alltogether
