News out of Germany:
“Effective immediately, The Playstation 3, the world’s greatest gaming system, is available for $299…” Announced by SCEA President and CEO Jack Tretton via video at the Sony gamescom press conference. Tretton continues, “And it also has a new form factor featuring a slimmer, lighter version of the PS3.”
