PS3 Slim and Price Cut

MCV has the announcement of the PS3 Slim, a pared down version of Sony's console that's been the worst-kept secret in the gaming world for some time now. The news is accompanied by a confirmation of a PS3 price cut, which was the second worst-kept secret in gaming over that same period. The PS3 Slim has a 120 GB hard drive, is 32% smaller and 36% lighter than its forebear, and is said to consume 34% less power. As for pricing, the PS3 Slim will cost 299.99, $299.00 and 29,980 yen, and the price on the current 80GB model has been cut to those pointes as well. Word is: " UK price has yet to be confirmed." The PS3 Slim is expected in stores by the first week in September.

>> JRPGs. Right now Valkyria Chronicles is the only PS3 exclusive worth getting

Wasn't White Knight Chronicle meant to be pretty impressive and PS3 exclusive?

Anyway, a friend of mine who is a big JRPG fan points out that the same games on PS3 tend to come one 1 BR disc, but 3 or 4 DVDs on the xbox.
If you are not a fan of disc swapping, that makes the games more compelling on PS3.
