225w ago - Pictured below is the PlayStation 3 Slim's new stand, which costs a whopping $24 if you plan to get one when it's available.
It works by laying flat on whatever surface you deem fit, and then it holds your new gaming console upright.
The folks over at Kotaku (linked above) have done a simple PS3 Slim standing test, to see if the fancy accessory is a necessity or not.
To quote stephentotilo, who shared the video on YouTube:
"Can the PlayStation 3 Slim stand without its fancy stand? Being a vertical-system guy, I had to test this."
Check out the video below for the result...

there are ways you can make your own stand out of materials way less than $24. if all else fails, use duct tape on the bottom of the slim ps3 to make it more secure. I'm kidding haha, however i did do the same with my surround sound system so it wouldn't fall off my stand like it always did.
$24 bucks? really? might as well keep the slim ps3 in the vertical position.
well, considering the psp GO! will be around the same price point as the ps3 now, you'd think they would learn.
