197w ago - This is apparently attack of the alleged PS3 Slim ads day... two retailers from two different sources claim they snagged pics of the upcoming ads.
Gizmodo (linked above) reports that they received photos of a 120GB PS3 Slim listed for $299.99 in a K-Mart flyer.
The story on the second set of pics supposedly from a Best Buy ad comes from TheBigManAndGarrett who are reporting the following from their source, to quote:
"I cannot reveal my exact role, however, I can tell you that I work closely with the marketing department at Best Buy. This ad is a mock up at best of the ad to be released in just over two weeks.
I cannot comment on the NeoGAF PS3 mock up as this is the material that we're working with. Many images are often used as placeholders. The final ad will be touched up for grammar, punctuation, etc. Hope this helps."
That being said, the general consensus thus far is they are fakes... all we can do is wait until next week to see if the PS3 Slim makes an appearance at...
210w ago - E3 2009 is on the way, and among other things that means speculation about potential PSP price drop announcements is also coming.
A visitor to Wal-Mart spotted an older PSP bundle that was dropped to just $150, which made it cheaper than the stand-alone PSP 3000 pack... leaving people to wonder if they are just trying to shift old stock or is it an indication that the price of the PSP itself will drop.
To quote: I picked up Hot Shots Golf: Out of Bounds for $20 (YES!!) but something caught my eye... the Ratchet and Clank PSP- 3000 series bundle which includes Ratchet and Clank: Size Matters, a voucher for Everyday Shooter, National Treasure 2 on UMD, AND a 1GB Memory card was a WHOPPING $50 off the normal price and had been dropped to $150, which made it CHEAPER than the stand-alone PSP-3000 pack (which is $170)!!!
