Oh Look, Some Florida Best Buys Already Have the PS3 Slim

25 08 2009


The PS3 Slim is coming out in September. This is true! Unless, apparently, you live in Florida, where residents in two separate towns are reporting that the console is already the shelves floors in their local Best Buys. UPDATED

A tipster sent us this shot from a Daytona Beach Best Buy, where there’s already a healthy—and as of yet untouched—stack of Slims, marked at the expected $300 price. Meanwhile, Engadget got a similar tip from Brandon, which is about two hours away from Daytona, where a reader actually boughtone. This could’ve been one regional managerial goof-up, but could equally be two unconnected incidents, and a sign that Sony might’ve been using the word “September” loosely.

So, Floridians: It’s probably time to check your local Best Buy. Non-Floridians: It couldn’t hurt to have a look anyway. Let us know what you find. —Thanks, Boomy and !

UPDATE: And then this tip from a BB employee, who says his store—a Tampa location—has been authorized by corporate to sell the Slim starting today:

I work at one of the Best Buy’s in Tampa. We got a notice in our system yesterday that we were getting the PS3’s today and that there was no street date on them. No snafu here. Don’t know about other districts but we were told.by corporate we can sell them today.
