>.> Can't you not read? They're talking about the PS3 price reduction. Very misleading tittle and it shouldn't have even been in the "Video Games Deals" section >.> Don't blame you though since you're new but try to read the description for each section before posting. Anyway they are probably hinting the PS3 bundle with 2 games when they say new exciting PS3.

It says nothing about a Slim PS3, just a price reduction (which hasn't even been activated yet since all the PS3s on the site are still at the regular price as of me typing this).

Kmart apparently jumped the gun, but it's just a matter of hours anyways. Looks like the price drop is going to be immediately following or just prior to the announcement.

Edit: should this be merged with the price drop/Slim "rumor" thread?

Edit2: btw, gratz OP. I think you're among the first to "break" this particular story. I'm thinking kmart will take it down soon and wait until Sony's announcement, though. Gj incredipinoy for taking the screen capture.

You should change the title for this thread before anyone gets more confuse.

Oswald9599 has had this price drop on the PS3 board since Friday and included picture proof backing him up on Sunday.

You guys saying the OP is wrong about the Slim are too quick to jump on him. Kmart.com says "New Exciting PS3" and gives a link to preorder. Are you guys not even looking at the site?

In their defense, the pre-order link seems like it was just added recently, but they still shouldn't have jumped on the OP.

PSN has been down...and it's for some major update. I've been predicting the return of PS2 BC for a long time now over at Gamefaqs. Now, I'm certain it will return before summer 2010. But I have a nagging feeling it may come earlier than that...this fall kind of early.

I also see the Slim being no less than 120GB...but most likely 160GB at least. Reason being? Soon to be released PS2 D/L games.

Wait for it...

That's what I meant, however it didn't sound right re-reading it. So many people now will just out of nowhere put the OP in the dumps, calling him crazy and making him feel insignificant, only to turn out, that there is a good possibility that it could come true.

Even when they do announce it, there is no need for a thread from each retailer that drops the price to the new regular price. Will we need separate threads for Walmart, Best Buy, and Amazon when they drop the price?

No, we don't need a separate thread for each one. Can just combine them all into this thread that get posted here, and leave the one on the PS3 board separate since that's been there for days.

Err, the pre-order price for the slim is $300, so.... that brings up the question, why would anyone buy the fat now for $300 (reduced price) if they can get the slim for the same price (a little later)? The only practical reason is they don't want to wait... but hell, it's not like there's anything exciting right now, KZ2 and Infamous came out a while ago and Uncharted 2 is not due yet...

While I think we're all expecting the announcement of a price drop today, and probably a new Slim PS3, it's not going to be on store shelves immediately.

I know a Blockbuster that has a Phat MGS bundle. Comes in the white box. Will it now be $300 too? They wanted $500 for it 2 months back.

I hope this is all true....I want the PS3 to succeed so bad. I'm so frustrated and fed up with my 360. After 5 RROD and, this last time, having my sons and my 360 die on the same freaking day, I'm ready to give it up.....I dont like playing games and worrying that my console could break at any moment......I'd love a slim PS3 to use as a second blu ray player....
