Sony announced today that they’re introducing a new version of it’s PlayStation 3 console, the PS3 Slim. It’ll be priced at $299 and will include all the stuffing like a Blu-ray drive, 120GB hard drive, Wi-Fi etc. It won’t have backward compatibility with the PS2 but then who plays those games anyway. I must say that it’s an attractive offer and with the new matte finish, it looks much better. I like it and if there were a good trade-in program for my bulky 80GB PS3, I’d take advantage of it.
With this addition to the Sony lineup, should Microsoft reduce the price of its Xbox 360 Elite? Is that something you would expect or welcome? Do they even have to respond to this?
What say you? I don’t think they have to do anything because they still have the best software line-up of all the consoles and the Xbox LIVE experience is unmatched.
