Here’s Your PS3 Slim Pricing!

1 min read

After the PS3 Slim was announced, we’ve been inundated with requests for news on when the console would launch locally, as well as its indicative recommended retail price.

I’m happy to report* that in-line with European price cuts the 120Gb PS3 Slim is expected locally towards the end of September – at a RRP of R3799. All things considered, that’s really not a terrible price for such a capable console. Locally, it’s priced the same as the soon-to-be-retired Xbox 360 Pro, but absolutely trumps it when it comes to specification; It has a Blu-Ray drive, built in Wi-Fi and twice the storage space of the 60gb Pro. With R3799 cash-in-hand, the PS3 slim is the obvious choice – and I know which one I’d buy.

The 80Gb regular PS3 in turn now has a RRP of R4199, including 2 platinum games (although Makro currently has that bundle at R3999 – so if you want a PS3 and can’t wait for the slim, that’s probably your best bet).

*Ed: Unfortunately SK has refused to answer our requests for comment so this report is based on the very best information our moles could dig up

Editor. I'm old, grumpy and more than just a little cynical. One day, I found myself in possession of a NES, and a copy of Super Mario Bros 3. It was that game that made me realise that games were more than just toys to idly while away time - they were capable of being masterpieces. I'm here now, looking for more of those masterpieces.
