K-Mart Leaks PS3 Price Reduction and New 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.



  1. The info was released at Cologne’s Gamecom convention!


  2. Yes indeed. This was confirmed later in the day. Thanks Eric!
