PS3 Slim Rumors Intensify As Multiple Price Cuts Loom

GamesCom may turn out to be one hell of an event: not only might we see the unveiling of the oft-rumored PS3 Slim - which should also be cheaper than the default PS3 model - but it seems the competition wants a piece of the action as well.  You knew they would.

Everything is beginning to come to a boil, as summarized by GameSpot. Firstly, and perhaps in anticipation of the long-awaited price cut, the hot rumor is that Microsoft will meet Sony's challenge by dropping $100 off the price of their 120GB Xbox 360 Elite model. This announcement should also come at GamesCom during MS's press conference, which is scheduled for the day after Sony's (August 18 and 19, respectively). Secondly, reports out of the UK say Sony will certainly confirm the European launch of the PS3 video store, although that announcement didn't exactly take the limelight when it arrived during Sony's E3 2008 presentation. So, what might take center-stage? Well, according to Hong Kong-based magazine GameWave, it's the slimmer, cheaper PS3 model everyone - absolutely everyone - keeps talking about.

Now, it appears as if Sony has been increasing PS3 hardware orders overseas, and MCV says stock of the machine has actually "dried up" in the UK. An anonymous source was quoted as saying, "We've been told not to expect any further [PS3] hardware deliveries until September." Lastly, we have the words of Wedbush Morgan Securities analyst Michael Pachter, who offered the following to IndustryGamers:

"All of the rumors floating around suggest that a PS3 price cut and introduction of the PS3 Slim is going to happen by the end of the month, and GamesCom is the only significant event between now and then.

We have seen reports out of China about increased PS3 component orders, have seen pictures that look real of the PS3 Slim, and have seen recent reports of declining PS3 stock in Japan and Europe, with comments from retail that they have been told not to expect new supplies of PS3s until the end of August or early September. All of that points to the possibility of an announcement at GamesCom."

Oh, and let's not forget PSXE's own set of guarantees, as put forth by our latest Twitter update. All this being said, we assume it's only a matter of time and in less than a week, you'll have some huge hardware-related news...

Although I already have my ps3, this would be good for those that haven't picked one up yet. Video store in Europe? That's news to me! cool ...I've been waiting for it in Canada and I can only hope it's also released here as well. It's been a long time coming.

Don't hold your breath... There's something about the Canadian copyright laws that we keep getting shafted up here for downloading movies to watch. Unless someone in the government suddenly decides that it's an issue, we won't see something like that for a little while, even though the rest of the world is doing it.

Even if MS drops $100 of the Elite it still wont be able to compete with the Slim or any kind of ps3 price drop. Everyone i know says they would own a ps3 if sony took $100 off the price. Very few people are in the market for a 360 but they buy the cheap model just to have something to game on while they wait for sony to drop the price.

I meant it as far getting Sony to sell just as many ps3s as there are Wiis out there. Though this may seem like a long stretch, it doesn't mean it's impossible.

And yes, they are totally different systems.

Nintendo cant be competition for Sony because they are marketed to completely different demographics. The ps3 is the Mercedes E Class of gaming consoles and the Wii is the Honda Civic. Not competing with each other, but offering similar products

I think you missed my point, if they aren't in competition, why are they making a product that will enable them to compete for the "casual" gamer audience that Nintendo attracted? You're telling me that Sony and MS aren't trying to get some of that 40+ million person demographic? If they aren't trying to compete than what are they doing?

Granted that Sony is the "Mercedes E class and the Wii is the Honda Civic" as you mentioned, but when it comes down to it, they're both cars. And Mercedes would always love to have a Honda owner upgrade to improve their own market share. Every luxury car company has an Entry level car in order to get people to cross over and promote brand loyalty to them.(IE: Mercedes C-Class. Hell even Ben has upgraded from a Nissan to an Infiniti ;). Same company..wayyy different car.) Sony is doing the same thing with their wand. Sure the PS3 is more expensive, but it'll soon offer everything the Wii offers and more...you'll think twice about JUST getting a Wii...And that is going to mean some stiff competition between Nintendo and PS3.

Before? No they weren't in competition, It was like comparing Apples to Oranges. Now after what we saw at E3? Sony grabbed and apple and an Orange and made Fruit Salad. Why? So They could be competitive.

Weird, I got an e-mail at my gamestop store today saying that the Elite's will no longer carry HDMI cables, I guess since they will be cutting the price, they want you to still buy the HDMI separate. Sony has to drop the price now, if they do not, they will be pretty much committing suicide because it will not sell.

The Xbox is cheap already. Whoever that wants to buy the 360 probably will go for the Arcade. Microsoft is going for the casual market now, the Elite setting is too much for them.

The Wii will sell like hot cakes regardless of what price it is. Reducing the price probably have little to no effect.

On the other hand, PS3 has always been an envy to the others because of the high price point, people want it, just can't afford it. PS3 will benefit most from a pricecut.

maybe its some kind of bizarre outer limits kind of market strategy???

think of it... sony's ps3 marketing strategy up until now has been far from the best... maybe some1 thought like "hmm... we spend money on ineffective advertisements that lead to a little amount of hype, if only we could spend no money, and recieve an amazing amount of hype!" then realised that pictures of the slim on the internet would cause intrest to explode overnight! and maybe as hype dies down, and skepticism rises, they distribute several early models in the phillipeans in the hopes that some1 will find it, and show it on the net... and with their "no comment on rumor and speculation" stance, would never have to admit it... the perfect advertisement, mondo effective and didn't cost anything!

I would love to see a cheaper Xbox 360 and ps3. But why won't MS create a xbox 360-slim like Sony?! I have been waiting to see something like that happen. A price cut would be good for both sides. I can't wait to see what happens ^.^

Because they're mainly a software company. Sony, mainly hardware. Hence why PS3's aren't plagued with it's own RROD type problem. Sony knows how to build gagits. MS...eeeh not so much. MS needs to focus getting their fat 360's working correctly before making a Slim.

$299 is still too much for an Xbox Elite. You've have to be a friggen idiot to choose an Elite over a Slim PS3 if they were both priced at $299. If people are smart, Sony might mop the floor with MS these coming years. Sony has a greAt oppertunity to make some strides.

Then Sony should counter that by offering more HD space or by letting everyone know how easy it is to replace the HD themselves. I still have friends who are surpises when I tell them my PS3 houses a 500gb HD. Either way a smart consumer would choose a blue ray player/game/media device over a few more gigs of space. The Elite has nothing to offer at a $299 price point. Especially of a sleeker PS3 is the same price. Like I said, anyone who chooses an Elite over a PS3 at the same price would have to be a friggen moron.

Guys... I think the announcement is almost a certainty... if they don't announce then there is something odd cooking.

Why the confidence; well I went over to a retailer I frequently visit to look at new PS3 game releases here in Singapore. Whilst we do not have a GameStop as you have in the United States; the stores here in Singapore are primarily mom and pop stores. Anyway, after a while of huggling with the owner and having to prove to him that I was not about to purchase another PS3, he finally devulged this... "Yes the PS3 Slim exists, and our order should be fulfilled during the October month".

I then asked about price, but he said Sony had not sent them information on that yet, the only suggestion to them was to clear stock and discount where possible in the coming weeks.

Basically, they are expecting slims in by October which to me makes perfect sense if you listen to what else is happening around.

Thought you guys may have wanted to hear about that from my end of the world, South East Asia!

theres allot of rumors running rampent saying the elite will be the price of the PRO and their dropping the pro.
they would of been better off dropping the arcade having the pro at the arcade price and elite at pro price.
but anyway if this is true, sonys really going to struggle.
120GB HDD instead of 80 HDMI cables headset, all things the PS3 should come bundled with.
if the ps3 is any more than 600 bucks here by years end, i cant see them keeping up.
the ps3s better but not 200 bucks better.

at this point, does Sony consider B/C a selling point? $99 for a ps2 slim, a great collection of PS3 games to chose from now, if you were making decisions at Sony, where would you put B/C on the list of priorities?

At least they're clearing old stock first. I remember when little Jimmy bought a PS2 for $499 AUD and it dropped to $299 AUD 2 weeks later.

Better to stop production of the old model early I reckon. Good move on Sony. My respect only continues to rise for Sony while Nintendo and Microsoft continue to disappoint year after year.

Keep up the great work Sony!!! You really are the true future leader of the video games market.

Well, I have a 60G w/bc in my living room and an 80G in my bedroom.

I'm planning to upgrade the 60G (I have 12G left) with a 500G hard drive soon. I would love to add a 1TB drive, but I don't think they make them for 2.5 drives yet.

Anyway, if they bring backward compatability back, I'll pick up a third PS3, this time from Japan, so I can play some of my old imports in the living room.

I've retired my U.S. and Japanese PS2s to my den, where I have all my legacy consoles hooked up to a 27" TV.

I'd also like to pick up a second 360 with an HD output.

How often do you update your PS3's to keep your save game files current on both systems? I've thought about this when I thought of getting a second PS3. Do you have to keep restoring your save game data to the other system?

CH1N00K, I have 2 PS3s, and all you gotta do is save the game saves to a flash drive. You can change them out and swap them if you wish. And Orvisman, I'd like to get a 1 TB HDD too, but 500GB is more than enough ;) You can go to places like newegg.com if you are curious as to how big of an HDD you can get.

I think the slim has the same features as the "fat" 40gb.

TBH I just wish Sony would announce it, get it on the shelves and start selling it. Every day, at least one website (and I'm not criticising this site :) ) has "pictures" of this "new" build. I'm sure once it's out, people will still find something to complain about.

There is a fake "best buy" ad floating around right now with the exact specs of the original 60gb PS3, except someone added a "1" so it is a 160gb drive. Priced at $399. Now that is a rumor tht requires rubber boots and a shovel.

4 usb ports, smart card reader, full BC. No mention if is uses software or hardware emu, but it has got to be fake anyway.

If not, day 1 for me. I can always use a new PS3 for the office.

They have a 160GB Uncharted bundle in Best buy's for sale. I'm not sure how much they are but I thought they were $399. Pretty sure that they aren't B/C though. I've seen them sitting on the floor so I'm not sure if you're as is the same as this promotion or not.
