GameTopius Writes: For the last three years, people have been moaning and groaning about the Playstation 3. Some have gotten financially righteous while a lot of us working stiffs have let our poverty cloud our judgment. That's not such a bad thing either, being that Sony made a machine that was a tad superfluous to begin with (I'm being nice there too). Well, Sony has officially announced the PS3 Slim, a re-release of their Playstation 3 with the almost mythical price drop that everyone's been clamoring for. With a $299 price tag, the 120GB model is roughly one-thirds smaller, lighter, and power-consuming than its predecessor. There are a few details however that remain a bit hazy at this point.
