It may have only been unveiled on Monday and scheduled for release in September, but already cut-price offers for the PS3 Slim are rippling across the internet, with ShopTo offering it for just £229.99!
The RRP for the PS3 Slim, announced by Sony in their conference in Germany on Monday, is £249.99, so ShopTo’s deal promises a saving of twenty-pounds! ShopTo is also offering an incentive to customers who pre-order a Slim before the 30th of August, guaranteeing delivery on the day of release, or compensating you with a three-pound delivery charge if it doesn’t arrive as specified.
The oft-rumoured PS3 Slim is Sony’s latest SKU, 32% smaller, 36% lighter and 34% less energy-consumptive than existing models. It also features an 120GB hard-drive, and the standard list of features and inputs you’d expect, sans backwards-compatibility with PS2 games.
We wrote an article on the PS3 Slim’s announcement on the following morning of its unveiling, detailing its list of features and the possible effects it may have on the console’s lagging sales. Sony are terrible at keeping secrets, so the announcement wasn’t much of a surprise, although publishers have already expressed extreme satisfaction at the price-cut, hoping it may prompt a surge in sales of both hardware and software.
