All PS3s Will Be Under $500 From Next Week

Sony announced their new PS3 Slim overnight, and if you're hoping to pick up one of the chunky older models at a bargain price before the new model hits shelves on September 3, you should probably hold off until next week.

David over at Kotaku was on Sony's case from the early hours of this morning getting more info on the Aussie release, and it looks like Sony are planning on dropping the price of the 80GB PS3 to the same $499.95 price point as the 120GB PS3 Slim 10 days before the new model goes on sale (or next Monday, August 24 for those who can't be bothered working it out).

But unless you're über keen on Linux support, the new Slim model looks like it's definitely the way to go.
