189w ago - SCEE European Product Manager Cristina Giuliano has shared a video announcement today on a Hustle Kings PS3 Nine Ball competition where entrants can win a 46" Bravia HDTV by clearing 9-balls!
To quote: PlayStation EU and Bravia are giving you the opportunity to win a fantastic 46" Bravia EX703 HDTV or, for the runners up, € 50 to spend on PSN simply by serving up a 'perfect' 9-ball pool match on Hustle Kings!
All you need to do to enter is clear all of the balls in a 9 ball match in one run from the break (which isn't so difficult, especially with the 'pro tips' below).
Clear up in superb style and, if you set the highest score, Bravia will maximize your high-def PlayStation experience with a 46″ Full HDTV!
The four runners-up will receive a PSN wallet top-up of € 50 too, so even if you just miss out on the HDTV your super-sharp skills will be rewarded.
How to get involved:
Step 1: Set up a Standard 9-ball match.
Step 2: Break and win the match by clearing up all 9 balls in your visit to the table (so that your opponent never takes a shot!).
Step 3: When the match results are shown, save your replay (by pressing square).
228w ago - To add more fuel on the fire of the last PS3 Slim rumor of a September 2nd European launch date, today comes the latest chapter in PlayStation 3 Slim speculation.
UK site GhostStorm (linked above) is reporting that UK chain WHSmith are currently selling PS3 consoles in-store at a reduced price of £200.
When they asked the retailer a reason for the clearance, they were told, to quote:
"We are clearing PS3s to make room for any new products that may come from Sony in the future."
So the question that now remains: Is WHSmith privy to some information on an upcoming PS3 Slim model, or is their giant clearance exercise completely unrelated to a potential PlayStation 3 Slim appearance this fall? Time will tell...
PS: Can anyone else confirm that WHSmith is selling them for £200 locally?
