You can't go wrong with 300$ with integrated Wi-Fi.

Watch how the sales will now increase. It was a matter of time, and just enough for the holidays.

Should be interesting.

kind of sucks that the new slim one doesnt have backwards compatability for ps2 games, although the only one I'd want that feature for is the original Red Faction. Multi-player mode on that game is tremendous.

Original version is always better than slim. Look at ps2, the slim version doesnt have a fan an a HDD.
