PS3 Super Slim Launches Today, Official Unboxing Video Inside

Looking to get your grubby paws on the latest iteration of the PlayStation 3? Well the wait is finally over, as the 250GB model launches today.

The bundle comes packed with the new, super-slim PlayStation 3, a copy of Uncharted 3: Game of the Year EditionDust 514 content and a free 30-day membership to PlayStation Plus. The pack itself will set you back $269, which is a bit surprising, since everyone was expecting a price slash rather than a $20 increase. It does however, come with a decent sized hard drive and a handful of solid extras, so it’s hardly a rip-off.

The PlayStation Blog has done an unboxing video of the console bundle, which you can check out below.

What do you think of the console’s new look? Does the PS3 look sleeker than before, or does the ribbed design and top-loading drive have you cringing in despair? Let us know what you think in the comments below.
