Live PlayStation is reporting that the latest issue of PSW Magazine (PlayStation World) of UK is hinting that a PS3 price cut will be announced at this year's upcoming TGS. Maybe this will placate Activision's Bobby Kotick?

According to the site, the article says: "Expect the long-awaited price chop to be announced at the Tokyo Games Show." There was no mention of an inside source, as rumors are wont to do, and this one oddly sounds more like a certain "Yeah, I know what am talking about" piece. Still, how certain it is, we'll only find out when the event happens. Hmmm... maybe this was what Sony meant when they said the E3 was not the place for the price cut announcements. It's because they were saving it for the TGS! Maybe.

Meanwhile, the price cut is not the only thing we should probably be looking out for at TGS. The same magazine was also reported to say that a confirmation of the PS3 Slim will also be made in Tokyo. The mag said: "The PS3 Slim packaging looks almost identical to the the confirmed PSP Go, so it isn't a fake. Expect the smaller, lighter PS3 to be announced at th Tokyo Games Show in September, just in time for Xmas."

To our readers in UK, did any of you grab a copy of this mag? Any more details would be greatly appreciated. Until we hear anything official, we're tagging this as rumor.

This year's Tokyo Games Show is happening from September 24 to September 27 in the Makuhari Messe, Chiba, japan. Stay tuned for more leaks updates on this one.

It was the hype about a month back.
N4G and a few other websites proved it.
Think it was basically confirmed as this:

but photoshopped

Why would anyone buy a Slim PS3??

It's just like the Slim PSP, it was no better than the Phat one I had, just a rehash to make a few more bucks.

Firmware 2.8 on wednesday?
And I know that picture is fake if that's what you're saying what I'm saying is there could be a slim in september that would be nothing like that.

Nothing new they are always making the ps3 lighter by removing functionality.

If they keep going no one will want or be able to play any games on it . Oh hang on it's like that already.


Tbf I went through a stage where I hardly played my xbox 360 either.



What does 2.80 firmware add btw ? an extra letter of the alphabet

Joking aside, although it seems everytime you switch it on it wants an update, still better than the opposite way round.

#I can be anyone I want to be ;-)

ehmm ..the original were 20gb and 60gb

Chrome trim, mem card reader, 2x usb ports, emotion engine [hardware] emulate ps2 removal, then the software functionality to do it also. Sacd support.

360 does that mate everytime you switch it on it updates I have a 360 btw and I no longer play it i'm only keeping it because my friends want to play with me.
I've only had one actual console update so far 2.76 2.8 won't had many exciting features.
Apparently 3.0 will definitely be out this year and will have voice chat in game and out crossing between games etc. from a so called "insider"

you are going back to the old 60gb (last made in mid 2007!)

they havent had any functionality removed at all since then, just an upgraded hdd. :thumbsup:

I bought a 360 2 months ago to play all these exclusives I'd been missing but only decent ones were gow1 and gow2.

Now its become a dust collector as only really decent exclusives forthcoming and out recently are on my ps3.

Yeah but the new 80 gb and 160 gb only have 2 usb ports.

The 360 hardly ever updates from DASH as in major firmware update. Generally only from disc to do with xbox live(and also lots of arcade xbox live online play updates) and tiny updates from disc anyways not like having to download 142mb (M$ normally only roll out only 2 major updates a year) Spring and Fall (It was said t.i.c and really is a good thing as long as you have internet access that is decent or a decent amount of bandwidth allowance)


Yeah I have 2 x 60gb ps3

GOW1 and GOW2 are just the same as any other FPS on 360 tbh.

That's a bad thing if theres no updates.

40GB has 2 ports.

Why do you have two PS3s if you don't like what sony are doing?

Obviously not the case then as nothing removed in the last 2 years :-D

How many variations of the 360 are there? (about 20+ is my guess).

Its a bad thing if there are no updates in a sense but also a good thing as it might also mean there is nothing to fix and noting is broken. Depends on how you look at it buy yeah you are right as well.

40gb has 2 ports yeah my point they used to have 4 ... now lighter... as in original post.


I have had the 2 ps3 since launch and there might lie the problem now there is no model they manufacturer that encompasses why I bought my 60 gb versions. It has had the functions I purchased the particular model removed. So if mine break I am bound not to like what Sony have done in that eventuality.

Much like in the same way that a Sony customer who purchased a Sony Dvd player will be upset at Sony's inclusion of a copy protection on Sony Columbia Tri-star DVDs which renders their DVD player useless because their Sony DVD player treats a DVD much like a PC DVD ROM drive and refuses to read a disc that has on purpose had errors included that a PC ROM drive cannot read.

That is as much as to say it will annoy Sony user . Why should Sony user then settle for that or be happy at their dvd player not play dvd's from Sony. I think It might alienate the customer base a little And Indeed it should because it was a poor decision from Sony and effects the very people Sony should really keep on side I.e loyal customers.

So that is my beef with the 2 ps3' I have I Paid £454 and £449 for each of them and they no longer make those models with the same specs as I bought because they kept removing hardware and the question has to be WHY ? 2x usb ports are hardly expensive, card reader is hardly dear to implement and why remove ps2 emulation either hardware or software unless to save wear n tear on optical drive

I can't understand about the usb ports and card reader but maybe they thought it wasn't so important and it still was a cost to them?
Are you trying to say it's not worth what they're making us pay? And they're trying to rip us off for our money?

Same with apple and the 2nd gen ipod touch.
But it still doesn't remove any PS3 Gaming features which is its main feature unlike the ipod adding a speaker and bluetooth.

I guess people would want it because the PS3 is huge. It must be twice as big as a phat PS2.

Nope. Just as to why > ? remove any functionality from a console in this case ps3.

360 is the same machine they released - no greater or less hardware (t i c t o) except die size , caps, board / optical, hdd eg variants M$ have not taken away hardware -- without leaving previous as well as an equivalent...

Please point out the obvious that I am missing from the 360 hardware changes on a par with what Sony have removed. (not a challenge)

Maybe another 60gb version owner will be OK with new version swapout covered by continuos play if they cannto fix 60gb but me if say I bought a sports car and it had to go back to factory and the replacement I received was not equal to specs that of which I had paid for I would be a little upset.

I like my ps3,s.
