PS3 Slim at Best Buy store

Sony's slim PS3 gaming console, originally slated for an early September release, is already showing up in some Best Buy stores in Florida. One buyer has already bought the console in a Brandon, Florida Best Buy location, while a Tampa-based Best Buy employee is reporting that his store is authorized to sell the redesigned game console as of today.

The newer, smaller PS3's ship dates are only listed as estimated and coming soon on Best Buy's US webpage, but a Canadian listing estimates the ship date as August 26th. Sony may have hinted at the early shipping during its original announcement, as it had only promised that all PS3 regions would have the new model next week and implied that some areas might get it early.

Apart from lower weight and smaller size, the new PS3 gets a larger standard hard drive, at 120GB, and retains its Blu-ray playback capabilities, pair of USB ports and Wi-Fi connection in addition to an Ethernet port. [via Gizmodo]
