16w ago - Today the previous PlayStation 3 rumors have been confirmed as a new flash-based 12GB PS3 console has been spotted on retailer shelves in both the US and Canada for $199.
Below are the details, to quote: "Following its release in Europe last year, the heavily rumored Flash-based PlayStation 3 is now on sale in the United States and Canada, The Verge has confirmed.
Sony's first low-storage model of the venerable console is now on shelves at Best Buy selling for $199.99. It's also available for sale at Canadian retailer Future Shop.
Sony had resisted selling a lower-capacity console in light of its emphasis on digital game and media downloads, even though Microsoft has always offered a low-storage Xbox 360. Both systems support adding additional storage through USB."

To quote: Hey everybody. We're incredibly excited to say Payday 2 is arriving on PS3 this month! We'll be bringing the four-player, cooperative heisting you know and love from the original Payday, but making it bigger, bolder, and badder - with a slew of new features that really give you a chance to live out that robbery fantasy, your way.
Now, before you go hitting that jewelry store without casing it at all, here's a quick breakdown of everything you need to know about Payday 2.
Cooperative Robbery Fantasy
Payday 2 is a sequel to the successful Payday: The Heist, a game first released on PSN and PC in 2011. Both games are first-person, cooperative shooters at their core.
Both games share the same high-intensity, "be a bank robber" concept. But Payday 2 really builds on the robbery experience we pioneered in the first game and takes it to a whole new level.
Our goal was to make players feel as though they can pull off the perfect heist. To make them feel like De Niro in Heat, or Vinnie Jones in Lock, Stock and Two Smoking Barrels - or even Jesse Pinkman doing a cook in Breaking Bad. We want...
