Forums - Sony Discussion - K-Mart Employee lets slip PS3 Slim news (to me!)

Short answer: he doesn't know what he's talking about.

Long answer: he's only guessing and still has absolutely no idea what he's talking about.

Listen, I completely agree there's a PS3 slim coming, I just don't think there are any sitting in the K-Mart warehouse (I didn't even know K-Mart still existed!) and that there are always random things in every store computer.

Time will tell. Making sense though with all the discontinuations of Ps3 models.

If I were to use the same mentality behind what is leading to all these slim rumors, and where they are getting them from, I would take your quote and the use it as evidence that Sony is discontinuing the PS3.  Nevermind that I ignore the context of your post when doing this.

K-Mart is still a biggish store in the NE USA

Walmart is bigger in all of NA.

I rarely see K-Marts in Canada, if any.. Walmart's are everywhere.

However.. I'm banned from every walmart in the province of Ontario until June 24th 2010.

how do you get banned from walmart, i mean i know almost every one gets thrown out at least once in there life but banned? did you kill someone in the store... i think thats what it would take 

Stole a WoW 60 Day prepaid game time card.

Little does walmart know, that's my 7th one.

Got caught on it though. Who HASN'T stolen from walmart... seriously.

I haven't.  Never thought it worth stealing from.  Also, I thought I would live the rich life by not stealing from anyone.  I call it "going first class".  Actually who bothers GOING IN a Walmart, unless you can't afford to shop elsewhere, or need to get something 2 am that you are out of.

Why are you so mad?

My god.. it's just a WoW game time card lol..

I don't know you.. I've been caught by Walmart, just wanted to see how long I could go without them catching me.. Took them long enough.

To paraphrase Darth Vader: "I find your lack of MORALS disturbing".

So he should not twitter the news?

Look mate, little do you know that most employees bear the burden of stock loss, and many employees face being fired for bad stock counts and stock loss.  Think about that asshat.  You're not one-uping a big company you're screwing over some kid getting through college or someone just trying to pay the bills.

I'm sick of chasing sorry ass low lifes that think it's cool to steal stuff out of my shop.  Especially subscription cards or points cards as they're the things that hit margins the most if they go missing.

And back on topic - no way would they do the slim for $199.  And betting a lifetme ban when you have 20ish posts isn't exactly a big deal. (like the guy from the 199 thread)



Retailer profit margins are usually through the roof. There's no other explanation for why something can be sold for $100 today, then $20 tomorrow.

Lots of do-gooders everywhere you go, better stop worrying about it. I too could say that by buying legit from Walmart, they're supporting human rights infringements in some parts of the world. Is that one morally correct?
