K-Mart Leaks PS3 Price Reduction and New PS3 Slim

kmart-ps3-slim

I’m not quite sure if this is intentional or one of the most bonehead moments in gaming release history, but either way K-Mart has mysteriously let slip some critical information about Sony’s future console releases and plans.

Displayed on the K-Mart front page was an ad for a “new low price” and a “new exciting” PS3. Soon after the discovery of the front page leak, it was discovered that K-Mart also had listed the Sony PS3 Slim for pre-order at $299, scheduled for a August 24, 2009 release. Whoops?

UPDATE: This info has been confirmed, thanks to an official announcement from Sony at Gamecom.
