I can not blame you on that. We call it the Break Box 360 around here.

Here's a question: once this Slim comes out, how many of you think it's going to be in high demand enough that people will be buying and reselling them for way over $299 on sites like ebay and people will actually pay it?

Not going to happen. If this is even confirmed, this is not a new console release like what happened when the Wii and PS3 originally came out, it is just a cheaper/smaller version of what is already out. The PS3 is not selling too hot right now because of price, so I doubt there will be loads of people willing to buy it at an inflated price...the price is what is turning people away for crying out loud. Sure, there could be a handful of people who profit, but it is not going to be large scale unless Sony releases an initial shipment that is way too small.

Nice find! If this has backwards compatibility I'll be mighty tempted to sell my 80G and get one of these.

Finally, I can justify getting one!

2 questions come to mind though..

1. How stable will this first batch be, and do I want to be an early adopter?
2. Will there be any chance for deals on the 80GB's?

Ha, amusing to see everyone jump on the OP. This technically isn't a "deal," though, is it? It's the initial pricing of a new product.

Well, I'm sold. I'll be getting this instead of a second 360. I've been waiting for the chance for a while to get a PS3 and this seems too good to pass up.

I still need to see the specs on this guy. The amount of inputs, outputs, playback etc.

Great price though...

I'm amazed at the crap behavior of those that gave the OP a hard time. You must all work for the government.

Got my pre-order confirmation from Kmart.com

No info re bc, usb or os.

Just as an aside, not saying I am going to do this, but I wonder what would happen if we all pre-ordered then all cancelled two days before the scheduled shipment date??? Having flashbacks to the great buy none, get one (or two) free Konami Gun Metal Gray PS3 debacle of 2008. Ah memories..... Hate the game not the player.

K-Mart pre-order link taken down. No longer available for pre-orders. Maybe it will be back up after Sony GameCon announcement.

will the slim have wifi though......as for playing ps2 games I dont really care for it and hardly use. The 60 gb model isnt bad but I can live with a 40gb model.
