The Slim PS3 finally hit this week. I still can’t get over the fact that some Japanese shop (video here) got their hands on the newly designed console well before the official press announcement. I wonder if they’re in some basement now being tortured to reveal their ‘inside man’. I’m not super excited about the new design, but I do appreciate the fact that the Slim PS3 uses 34% less power then its predecessor and includes a 120GB hard drive. I’ve been holding out for a Blu-ray player and this might just be the one I’ve been looking for. Anyway, here are pics of the Slim PS3 from all angles. Far from a stunning design, but I like Sony’s conserative approach. I think they’ve produced a more timeless looking console.
