Brace yourselves. The time may be ripening for the eagerly anticipated, rumor-worn major PS3 announcement. MCV reports that the stock of PS3s in the UK are running low, which may indicate that Sony is preparing for a big move that could prove to be a crucial factor in the life of their console. Price cut? PS3 Slim? Or both?
According to MCV, Sony is already clearing PS3 stock currently in the market, quite possibly to make way for cheaper and/or slimmer PS3s. Sony has already found a way to reduce manufacturing costs by a solid 70 , and there has been a lot of talk about the PS3 Slim for quite some time.
SCEE has reserved a rather heavy three hours for a presscon at the forthcoming GamesCom 2009, where the all eyes in the industry will be on Sony to make the major PS3 announcement.
