A slim(er) PS3 is due to be released at the end of the month.

Sony is launching two slimmer versions of its PlayStation 3 console to boost sales of the ageing games machine.

One version will feature 12 gigabytes of flash memory, allowing it to become the cheapest PS3 to date.

The other has a 500GB hard disk and will be sold for roughly the price of the previous 320GB model.

Sony says the revised models are less than half the size and weight of the original PS3 launched in 2006, and a 20-25% reduction on the previous models.

The 500GB version will go on sale on 28 September in the UK and the 12GB device on 12 October.

HMV is offering the 12GB device for £185 - it charged £200 for the 160GB PlayStation Slim.

My launch day model is running well after 6 years. I have had no issues with it, other than the fan being a little loud, but that is to be expected.
