French Slim PS3 Rumor

French gaming social media site JVN today claimed to have confirmed Sony's slim PlayStation 3 through contacting an unnamed retailer in the country. The source says wholesalers expect the thinner, redesigned model in September and that it should drop exactly 100 Euros to 300. These new systems would come "naked," or without games, but stores haven't been told what's included in the hardware itself; most rumors have a 120GB hard drive as stock.

Rumors of the sort correspond with earlier claims that the new PS3 would be unveiled next week at Germany's gamescom expo and that it would all but replace existing 80GB and 160GB PS3s, whose supplies would be cleared out in the weeks ahead of the release. US pricing in this view would drop from a minimum $400 to $300.

Microsoft is believed to be preempting that move by replace Xbox 360 Pros with Elites and most likely cut the Elite price to at least the Pro's $300 level. [via Joystiq]
