Sony officially announced availability of PS3 Slim this coming September 1st and it will cost for $299. As Sony Computer Entertainment CEO Kaz Hirai unveiled the new model of PS3 in Cologne, Germany last Tuesday, he called the new unit as PS3 Slim.

This is not just another software/program upgrade or a little hardware upgrade touch, the internal design architecture has been totally restyled and improved. PS3 runs the same speed with the previous version of PlayStation but of course, it is smaller and more energy efficient. In addition, power consumption was reduced to two-thirds.
