    you should fix the 'let us know' link at the end :)

    I think it's too early to release a slim version of this console. What are they going to do in a few years ? Release the PlayStation 3 VerySlim ?

    Amazon has it up for£250.

    Also: pictures.

    The more I look at it, the fuglier I think it is.

    not very pretty is it but I suppose you only ever see the front, shame they never saw fit to add rear usb, I'd pick one up, assuming less power translates to silent.

    very old school look. I like it. Plus, next to a controller, it does look very small !. At least that's if you compare it to the regular model

    Went from looking like a grill to looking like a waffle iron.

    Spot on, and a matte finish, if it turns out to be £249.99 in a 120GB SKU, I am up for having a second PS3 slim, with GT5 in the box?.

    A return to form for Sony me thinks, what with all the great games on the way.

    I'll buy one as soon as they include backwards compatibility. Hell I'd even pay $50 extra for that option.

    If it doesn't play PS2 games, then most people I know won't be interested.

    Looks like they removed the touch sensitive buttons on the console face and replaced them with mechanical ones. It really doesn't look as nice imo but the price point really is good.

    Are they simply taking out the power pack and putting it on the outside like they did with the PS2 though? If so you still have to find space for a power pack which I've always found harder to make it look nice.

    It's gone from a boxers grill to a plastic case for a cheap cordless drill.

    Nope. If you look at the back it takes a figure-8 plug. The power pack is integrated.

    Is the hard drive upgradeable still? It looks like the part under the slot load drive might be detachable.
