Sony Europe has officially unveiled the long rumored PlayStation 3 Slim today during its press conference at GamesCom in Cologne, Germany.
According to Sony chief Kazuo Hirai, the revamped console will go on sale during the first week of September, and features (as leaked earlier today) a 120GB hard drive among the obvious aesthetical tweaks.
PS3 Slim will retail for approximately 299 EURO/$299 USD – likewise for the current model, which Hirai confirmed would receive a price drop effective as of tomorrow. Stay tuned for further details.
