Here you go: Your PS3 Slim images and details

1:45 PM on 08.18.2009 // Nick Chester

The new PlayStation 3, officially known as the CECH-2000A, has finally been revealed. You know it better as the "PS3 Slim," and it'll be available on September 1 for $299.99. 

The console is a lot like the one that's sitting in the living rooms of gamers now, complete with a 120 GB hard drive and all of the same inputs and outputs you've come to expect. Except it's smaller ... much smaller. More specifically, Sony is saying its thickness and weight are "approximately two-thirds" that of the 60 GB launch console, thanks to some fancy new internal design architecture. Also reduced by two-thirds is the console's power consumption, which will mean softer fan noise when you're rocking Uncharted 2 this holiday. 

The "BRAVIA Sync" feature is also new for the smaller PS3. If you're the proud owner of a BRAVIA TV, using an HDMI cable to connect the console to it will allow you to control the XMB on the TV using the PS3. You can even activate "system standby," which will automatically turn off your PS3 when the television is turned off. 

Heads up to those interested in installing Linux on your Sony console -- it's not happening with the PS3 Slim. The "Install Other OS" feature has been removed from the console, as (and these are Sony's words) "the new PS3 system will focus on delivering games and other entertainment content." So there goes that. 

Hit the jump for the full system specs, if you're into that kind of thing.

Irony: over 9000!. The same UN with staff distributing child porn, Saudi Arabia heading its Human Rights Council and troops accused of rape wants to school Japan on their treatment of women in videogames. You can't can't make up this stuff.

So I got my game recorder. That's good! But I ordered the wrong one. That's bad. So just gotta send back to Amazon and order it. Could've sworn on the website it said the HD60 Elgato let you record old games too.

It just occured to me that given the 99% probablility of there being an update pack to XCOM 2-ala Enemy Within-waiting for a while may be a better option, so that when I do get the game I get it in its optimal form-and on sale, to bring it below 90 total
