Kotaku Originals: Slim GoodbodyS

No doubt about it, this was Sony's week, as the PS3 Slim's arrival dominated the news out of Gamescom - one of three expositions on two continents where we have or had writers in the past week.

Totilo went to QuakeCon, Fahey's now at BlizzCon, and though Gamescom is wrapping up in Cologne, by no means is that end of our coverage there. Look for more reporting on Gamescom in the coming week, for now, take a look back on what Kotaku delivered in this one.

And for those who weren't seven years old in 1980, here's what the picture's all about.
