The 60GB PS3 model was a very valuable piece of hardware. It had everything, from wi-fi, backwards compatibility, flash card readers, SACD support, to even a built in Foreman grill(OK, not really that last one). Of course, it came at a premium - a $600 premium. As a result, in their on going quest to lower the price of the console, Sony started docking features one by one from the system. And it seems that the PS3 Slim, currently unannounced, will be continuing in this motion, removing even more non-gaming essentials from the platform.
