May 27, 2009 // 12:09 am - It looks as though Sony is planning to introduce yet another PS3 SKU in coming weeks at E3 2009.

Some believe it will be a redesigned Slim PS3 while others think it will have the same cosmetic design, but will boast different features.

We still don't have the specifics, but this leaked pic of the Best Buy database (below) essentially confirms that a new PlayStation 3 SKU is on the way. It's set to go active after E3 next week and while the price is still set at $399 for an 80GB machine, it's also labeled as a "Limited Edition" bundle.

This package will include two unknown games and it quickly reminds us of Target's PS3 bundle they offered after the GDC; it included both Resistance: Fall of Man and MotorStorm. The release date is listed as June 9, which is less than a week after E3 concludes.

Now, this news may be disappointing to those of you who are hoping for a price drop announcement, but any new bundle deals are always appreciated by the savvy consumer. This package may also be exclusive to Best Buy - although we can't be sure at this point - which means it may or may not make a big splash at Sony's E3 press conference.

There's really no way of knowing the specifics at this point but even when a manufacturer wants to hide everything, the retailer can't always control the flow of info... it's just something else we'll be on the lookout for during Sony's conference next week.

I paid how ever much a launch PS2 cost. I just bought a new one for $99. This reminds me of all the people wanting a refund for Ragdoll kungfu because it was free for a week. Mind Blowing.

On the picture :
Weight : 15.25 lb

My good friend google told me the weight of a PS3 box is 15 lbs for 60-80gb models. Considering a slim model would probably weight a little bit less since it's smaller, then I guess it's not a slim PS3.
