The day just wouldn't be complete without some additional PS3 Slim details, rumors, hype or speculation... now would it? :p
Today Examiner.com (linked above) is reporting that the PlayStation 3 Slim is rumored to make a September 2nd launch, with an official announcement coming on August 18, 2009.
This roots from Elios83 of NeoGAF who states, to quote:
"I've heard from retail sources, which have been absolutely reliable in the past that PS3 Slim will launch throughout Europe on September 2 at 299?, official announcement at the GamesCon. We'll see but considering the same sources have been spot on for two years in a row (40GB+price cut and 80GB) I personally don't doubt them ;)"
Based on that, the Examiner speculates that as Gamescon takes place during mid-August Sony may include the PS3 Slim announcement during their 3-hour long press conference on August 18th.
Of course only time will tell for certain, however, NeoGAF is usually on top of things in the gaming realm so here is to hoping this rumor pans out!
