PS3 Super Slim is finally revealed, hits UK next week

Sony has opened the Tokyo Game Show by unveiling the long-awaited PS3 Super Slim.

It’s the third iteration of Sony’s PS3 hardware and is the smallest yet, boasting reduced power consumption and a smaller footprint.

Pictures of the unit have been available since July and a retail leak yesterday suggested the machine was close to a reveal.

Two SKUs are planned. The first is a 500GB high-end bundle that will retail for around the same price as the current 320GB machines. That will launch in the UK on September 28th, bundled with EA’s FIFA 13 that releases on the same day. The SKU is a GAME exclusive in the UK.

An entry-level 12GB SKU aimed at the family market will be released on October 12th. That will retail for around the same price as the current 160GB machine but will include more in the box.

Sony will not be setting an official RRP in the UK and will allow retail to determine its own pricing.
