@Sudarshan @Anudeep

PS3 Slim will be available for exact Rs 19,990 in India, it has been confirmed by Sony India and there will be no games bundled with it…expected release date is early November.

Abhineo says:

Hey, price will not be 16000, 19000 or 20000 INR for PS3 slim in India, as SONY already anounced one flat price, that is 299 US $ worldwide… Somewhere between 12 to 15 K only. It will be lagging on linux side. check CNET review for more details.

Abhineo says:

@Shashank

Who told you from SONY INDIA about the price 19,990 rs for PS3 Slim. That is the current price for Fat SONY PS3 80 GB now, Just to sell out the FAT PS3 as soon as they can. Once PS3 slim will be in the market, Sony will not sell any fat PS3.

sudarsan says:

I use ps3 jus to play games offline and online :mrgreen:

i dont browse internet or watch movies.

so the gaming experince will be as same as ps3 Fat right

neeru says:

from whatever i have read about this so far…i have concluded that the phat ps3(with two free games) will run till its stocks are finished and ps3 slim will be out around the year end…price must be around 16000-17000 but without any games…so its up to us whether to buy now or buy later

Abhineo says:

Hey !!! Why you indians are increasing price of PS3 Slim in india, as already SONY ananunced 299 $ flat price all over world… Do you knw in this price only more than 1.3 lakh copies sold in the Japan only..

Abhineo says:

I think.. Some silly Indian brain stopped it to launce here in September and thrown rumer that the price will me more than 26 K…Just to sell some consoles in the higher price before it launch….

Abhineo says:

I think.. Some silly Indian brain stopped it to launch here in September and thrown rumor that the price will me more than 26 K…Just to sell some consoles in the higher price before it gets launch….He/She is able to make some money for ownself by doing that (He/She might have some % in the profit of Sony India)….just a management skills dude !!!

utkarsh says:

17K will be the right price to pay.

Shawn says:

When PS3 will launched with mod chip?

sudarsan says:

What :shock:

Ps3 will not launch with mod chip

modding is illegal

and most of all

ps3 cannot be modded :cry:

Even if u managed to mod it, u need to go online for any updates,
so if they find that u have modded ur ps3, ur ps3 online account will be cancelled.

u can tell me, that i dont want to use ps3 online,
but if u want to play games in ur ps3, that game need updates , will can be found only on ps3 network (online)

ya , i know xbox 360 has a stealth mod chip with can go

online,but there is a high chance of risk, u may get caught
