At Sony's GamesCom 2009 press conference, the company thrilled gamers and changed the playing field with the $299 PlayStation 3 Slim. It also said that the new PS3 model would be available in September. According to GameStop, that's not the case. The retailer currently lists a shipping date of August 25, 2009 for the new console.
This is great news for those that want to get their hands on the Sony's svelte system as soon as possible. For me, it makes August terribly interesting; if the ship date is accurate, I can't wait to see what August's NPD numbers are like.
Do you think the PS3 Slim is shipping early? Or is it a simple error on GameStop's site?
