A 12GB flash-based PlayStation 3 Slim is on its way to the North American continent. Sony already sells this budget version in Europe and now it’s coming to the new world.
It’s worth noting that there’s no official word on this yet. However, as Engadget reports, a listing for the new 12 GB variant was spotted on Canada’s online marketplace Future Shop (hence removed) for $199.99. Engadget has also received a picture of the new PlayStation 3 12 GB found at a retailer within the US, along with a label that the product mustn’t be revealed before August 18.
So August 18 is about when people within the US can get their hands on the low budget, 12 GB PlayStation Console.
