PlayStation 3 to get 45nm Cell 'mid year'

I just bought the 160gb Uncharted bundle! My brother and I always argue over the PS3 so I gave him my 40gb for $100 and I bought the 160gb Uncharted bundle (even though I already have the Uncharted and it's Platinum Trophy). I could of waited until this RUMORED slim PS3 which might (probably not) have BC...

Actually no I can't wait, KZ2 is coming out in less that a month and it will consume my life O_o. An article would show up on N4G with the headline "Video Game Addict Throws Brother out of 6 Story Building"

That they will spend money on a redesign and re-tooling of factories to make a slimmer PS3 at this time.

45nm Cell chip production starts late Feb/march2009, this was already known. Meaning we could see a price cut by summer2009, if Sony choose to pass on there production cost saving they will be making.
