Although I'm not in Germany attending the GamesCom 2009, I've been anxiously awaiting the announcements to flow in from the upcoming conferences. First up, and admittedly the one I've been waiting for, is Sony's announcement of a thinner and cheaper PS3.
Launching on Sept. 1, the PS3 Slim will come with a body that's 33 percent smaller, a big 120 GB hard drive, and will set you back just $300 — $100 less than past PS3 price tags. But if you don't mind the current PS3 heft and can't hold off until September to get your hands on a console, you can now purchase an 80 GB PS3 for the same $300 price. Plus, getting your presale on has never been easier, as both Kmart and Sears have listed the PS3 Slim on their websites for presale already.

PSP Minis are smaller, downloadable games that are limited to 100 MB in size, specially made for your PSP Go. When the PSP Go launches this Fall, there will be 15 Minis available for you to download and play right from the on-board store — titles like Tetris and Fieldrunners have already been confirmed. Think of Minis as an app for your PSP Go — small, quick, and fun titles that will cost less to download than a full-scale game.
