Lower Price to Further Accelerate Expansion of the PlayStation®3 Platform
Along with Extensive Software Title Line-up for Upcoming Holiday Season

Tokyo, August 18, 2009 – Sony Computer Entertainment Inc. (SCE) today unveiled the new PlayStation®3 (CECH-2000A) (body color: charcoal black) computer entertainment system, featuring an extremely streamlined form factor with a 120GB Hard Disk Drive (HDD). The new PlayStation®3 (PS3®) system will become available in stores from September 1, 2009, in North America, Europe/ PAL territories and Asian countries and regions at a very attractive recommended retail price (RRP) of US$299 and ?299, respectively. The system will become available in Japan on September 3, 2009, at a RRP of 29,980 yen (including tax). With the introduction of the new PS3 system, SCE will also reduce the price of the current PS3 with 80GB HDD to a RRP of US$299 from August 18 and ?299 from August 19. Also in North America, the price of PS3 with 160GB HDD will be reduced to a RRP of US$399 from August 18. By launching a vast library of exciting and attractive software titles for PS3 this holiday season and offering customers a line-up of hardware models and pricing to match their preference, SCE will build on the momentum and further accelerate the expansion of the PS3 platform.

The internal design architecture of the new PS3 system, from the main semiconductors and power supply unit to the cooling mechanism, has been completely redesigned, achieving a much slimmer and lighter body. Compared to the very first PS3 model with 60GB HDD, the internal volume as well as its thickness and weight are trimmed down to approximately two-thirds. Furthermore, power consumption is also cut to two-thirds, helping to reduce fan noise. While inheriting the sleek curved body design of the original model, the form factor of the new PS3 system features a new meticulous design with textured surface finish, giving an all new impression and a casual look. With the compact body and casual appearance, the newly introduced model will appeal to a wider audience who are looking to buy the best entertainment system for their home.

Concurrently with the release of the new PS3 system, SCE will modify the PS3 brand name from “PLAYSTATION 3” to “PlayStation 3″, and introduce a new ” ” logo, which is engraved on the surface of the new PS3 system. By unifying under the familiar “PlayStation®” name, which represents the entire PlayStation family, PS3 together with PlayStation®2 and PSP® (PlayStation®Portable) will further expand the PlayStation business, and will continue to enhance the entertainment experience along with the ever-growing PlayStation®Network.

The new PS3 continues to offer the cutting-edge features and functions of the current models, such as the ability to enjoy high-definition Blu-ray disc (BD) movies and games, as well as various content and services downloadable through the network. The new PS3’s storage size has increased from 80GB to 120GB, and with the extra capacity users will be able to store more games, music, photos, videos as well as various content and services available through PlayStation Network. Having more than 27 million registered accounts around the world, PlayStation Network offers more than 15,000 pieces of digital content, ranging from game titles, trailers, and demos to more than 15,000 movies and TV shows via PlayStation Store*1. PlayStation Network members can also download free applications, such as PlayStation Home, a ground-breaking 3D social gaming community available on PS3 that allows users to interact, communicate and share gaming experiences, as well as Life with PlayStation, which offers users various news and information on a TV monitor in the living room by connecting the PS3 to the network.

Since the launch of PS3 in November 2006, the number of BD-based titles has reached more than 1,000 titles and downloadable PS3 games to 1,400*2 titles worldwide, with the support from a broad range of third party game developers and publishers. In addition to this extensive software title line-up, exciting and attractive new titles are to be released from SCE Worldwide Studios, including Uncharted 2: Among Thieves, EyePet, Ratchet & Clank Future: A Crack in Time, Heavy Rain, God of War 3, MAG, ModNation Racer, Gran Turismo 5 and more.

Other features of the new PS3 include:

Ø PS3 system software update version 3.00

Concurrently with the release of new PS3, system software will be upgraded to version 3.00 on September 1. The update adds various user-friendly features such as the “What’s New” screen, where users can quickly browse the new items available in PlayStation Store as well as their recently played games directly on the XMB? (XrossMediaBar), with short cuts to each piece of content. PS3 will evolve continuously with the system software updates, further improving the operability and enhancing the user experience available through the network. PS3 owners will be able to enjoy new features by simply updating the PS3 system software to version 3.00 via the “System Update” function on the XMB*3.

Ø BRAVIA® Sync? Feature

The new PS3 system is also equipped with the BRAVIA® Sync? feature. By connecting the new PS3 system and a BRAVIA TV with the HDMI cable, users are able to directly operate the XMB on PS3 using the TV remote control. Other functions include “System Standby” that will automatically turn off the PS3 system when the BRAVIA TV is turned off*4.

Ø “Vertical Stand” for new PS3 (CECH-2000 series)

By utilizing the separately sold “Vertical Stand”, users will be able to set the new PS3 in vertical position*5, making it easier to place the PS3 system anywhere at home.

    Ma che schifo, hanno messo dei normalissimi tasti per l'espulsione del disco e l'accensione, almeno quelli potevano mantenerli come nelle vecchie versioni.

    Cmq dite ciò che volete, ma la vera e unica Ps3, completa di tutto è solo la 60 GB, con quello hai una console completa al 100 %, ogni volta che invece esce 1 nuova versione c'è qualche cosa in meno…

    Io mi terrei stretto la Fat se fossi in voi.

    E' inutile dire quello non mi serve, quello non me ne frega se ci sta o meno, rimane il fatto che chi ha una 60 GB può fare tutto e di più, mentre chi si comprerà 1 Slim potrà fare poco e niente….

    All'inizio il motivo per cui erano tutti entusiasti della Ps3 è che poteva diventare un vero e propio Pc, grazie anche al fatto di poter installare un sistema operativo, molto buono a mio parere, come Linux.

    Ma adesso anche questa cosa è stata tolta, la prossima cosa quale sarà, levare l'Hardisk e tornare a usare le memory card???

    Non fa schifo, non iniziamo a dare appellativi alla cieca perchè se fosse uscito solo questo modello ai tempi, l'adoravate! Semmai è meno bella della fat. Ma se avesse avuto il case simile, quindi lucido e con la scritta PS3 cromata il design sarebbe stato migliore delle attuali PS3.

  3. brain_81 on

    Alla fine è come se abbiano fatto una schiacciatina della fat. E' più bassa, ma più larga. Mah…

    la hanno fatta in 16:9 :rotfl:

    comunque sembra carina, mi piace piu della fat… ma me la apettavo piu slim pero….ma il fatto che consuma meno e' da tenere molto in considerazione….peccato per le porte USB,e la mancanza del onoff…ha ragione qualcuno che ha detto che ogni versione tolgono qualcosa….comunque  e' bello vedere che fino  a ieri il poter installare linux era una cosa fantastica citata sempre durante le console war e ora invece e' diventata la cosa piu inutile del mondo di cui fanno tutti volentieri a meno :rotfl:

    …e ora invece e' diventata la cosa piu inutile del mondo di cui fanno tutti volentieri a meno :rotfl:

    Forse è inutile per te perchè non ce l'hai e viaggi ancora con PS2 e PC, ma per chi ce l'ha o l'avrà non è inutile.

    Anche se a me sinceramente linux non interessa, e non lo installerò mai sulla PS3

  5. maximino73 on

    Secondo me non ha senso far uscire una consol che procede all'indietro, era meglio impuntarsi sulla fat e diminuire drasticamente il costo, la slim e carina pero non dovevano togliere il lettore schede (che per me sono il futuro capienti, piccole, veloci ed economiche) e la possiblita di installare linux. Gia ero deciso di prendermi una ps3 da affiancare alla x ora credo che il prezzo della fat scendera in modo considerevole e non me la faro scappare.

  6. jeppos on

    Comuqnue confermo, altro che slim… è proprio chiatt' !! :asd:

    La ps2 slim è una vera slim

    Quotone, la slim è venuta proprio bene esteticamente e comunque per la ps3 avrei preferito questo design fake, non sto scatolo quadrato per la pizza:asd:

  7. essemme on

    Dalle specifiche tecniche, però, non si capisce con che processo produttivo sono costruiti i proci (CPU e RSX) .

    Per la CPU do per scontato sia 45nm, altrimenti sarebbero dei pazzi, ma l'RSX?
