Huge, but completely expected news, gaming fans! Sony has just announced the launch of the Sony PS3 Slim, as well as a big price drop for all current PS3s on the shelf. You can read the liveblog from IGN here.

This new Slim will have all the features of the current PS3, but it will be much lighter and thinner. Aside from that, not much has changed. The Slim will cost $299 in the US, as well as 299 Euros in the UK and 29,980 yen over in Japan. All other PS3s have seen a price drop in response to this news, although how much that drop will be has not yet been announced. It appears to be effective immediately, however.

This last big bit of news concluded the conference, and finishes off our coverage of Gamescom 2009. Thanks for reading, and have a good time geeking out about all the new toys and treasures coming your way. If you haven't, please remember to check out the liveblogs for more information about the sort of games we can expect to see Sony put out over the next year.
