G4TV: The announcement of the PlayStation 3 Slim coming in at $299 has delighted gamers around the world. Those holding off on purchasing a PS3 have 100 reasons to do so. At $299, there's no questioning the PS3's value -- it's a great gaming system and a wonderful Blu-ray player. Although $299 is still a lot of money, it's simply a much more palatable price point for many people. Sony, its investors, and gamers have a lot to be happy about.
Minutes after Sony's GamesCom 2009 press conference, I started thinking about the $249 PSP Go. While I was planning to get one so that I don't go on a killing spree after listening to that annoying UMD drive on my PSP-2000, it seems like such a poor value compared to the PS3.
