    There is also a rumor of a new PSN update where PSN will totally be overhauled but we'll see.

    Does anyone know where we can get a live feed of the conference (in English)?

    A little cheesed that I apparently got my PS3 eight months early, but if PSN is getting refurbished, that will temper my rage.

    Don't feel bad I just spent $70 to get a new laser for my PS3 after the first burned out after 18 months. So I have spent almost $600 on my 80 GB BC system. Now they're $300.

    Also if this doesn't boost Sony's sales nothing will, as now they are finally affordable. Especially considering the 360 Arcade is largely useless and the 360 Elite will be the same price but without WiFi, a charging controller, and a pay service based online system.

    The comics on PSP look nice as well...I believe they are coming to NA too.

    Edit: Its official there will be a $299 Slim PS3 due out the first week of September (at the latest all over the world, the k-mart add said 8/24/09) and starting tomorrow the current PS3 models will have a price cut, the current $399 model will now be $299. No PSN overhaul mentioned.

    I've been holding off on buying a PS3 for quite some time. This may change my mind.

    I like the PS3 "phat" better from a looks standpoint. I hope the price drop and solid line-up of games in Q4 09 and Q1 2010 help push the numbers up to where they deserve to be.

    Uncharted 2 is reason enough alone for people on the fence to get a PS3 especially now that it is at a fair price point. I haven't been as excited as I am about Uncharted 2 in a while. Not even mentioning God of War 3, Heavy Rain, GT5, Mod Nation Racers, Mag, and others that are also on the way.

    However reintroducing Backwards Compatibility along with this price drop would have been huge in getting the huge PS2 install base to upgrade.

    I thought $399 was completely fair.

    We've been down that road before, but I think we can both agree if $399 was fair then $299 is really fair. :wink2:

    $299.00!!! There goes the "it's too expensive" XBOX fanboys.

    I always thought $399.00 was fair. Damn, if only I had told the g/f to hold off on buying me mine for 2 years...LOL!

    7lbs for the slim, vs what it is now (14lbs I think). God, after/around christmas I may consider getting a slim just because I hate lugging the phat one around in airports.

    Just hold the power button down after you turn it on, and it beeps again. This will maximize the ps3 settings for the current connections.

    It is where it deserves to be.

    If you are enjoying your gaming experience, what does it matter what place it is in?
