Slim PS3 Revealed, Price Drop Included

At the heart of PS3 is the Cell Broadband Engine, one of the most advanced computer processors in the world, that enables massive floating point calculation, and Blu-ray Disc (BD) drive, providing a High Definition (1080p) next-generation gaming and movie experience in the home, as well as up to 50 GB of data capacity.
The past few months, it has been raining clues, hints and leaks pointing at Sony prepping a PS3 "slim" SKU, as well as a price drop to boost sales, while Sony has been denying the product's existence. Many people expected a formal announcement to be made at GamesCom, but it seems K-Mart and Sears did not feel like waiting, as both have listings for a 120GB PS3 slim model at $299.
