#1 Edited by Bucketdeth (8005 posts) -

I haven't seen this posted anywhere sorry if it was as I usually have bad luck even after searching of posting something not new. 
 
But apparently 1 million of those little things called the PS3 slim were sold within 3 weeks, and thats pretty awesome.

In all seriousness this doesn't really surprise me, the slim is a much better value than the 360, im thinking of getting one my self.

That and the price drop were very nice, but how come a PS3 is 299 and a PSP Go is 250?  I want a PSP Go but it's too expensive.  Always have to wait for a damn price drop with everything.

1. Halo 3: ODST is not related to this thread in any way, shape, or form.
2. Halo 3: ODST costs $60, while the PS3 costs $300
3. Shitty flamebait, noob.

There's one of that million sitting right next to me too.
 
*Hugs PS3 Slim*.
 
In other news: fantastic job by Sony. They've essentially relaunched the PS3. Which is crazy when you think about it. I've ragged on their marketing a lot in recent years, but I think SCE did a great job with the PS3 Slim.
