The two biggest complaints about the PS3 have been its ridiculous size and ridiculous price. Both are going down with the new $300 PS3 Slim. This little baby packs all the features of the similarly-priced 80GB clunker version, but with a bigger 120GB hard drive.
The new model consumes less power, too. Even the finish and buttons look less pretentious. It took almost three years, but Sony seems to have finally realized the folly of its arrogance.
