Is this sony’s new way to hype?


I’ve been noticing their are more and more “leaks” now-a-days compared to then when they formally announce things.

Think back to when the PSPgo was announced and that Qore video was released early. Here. That and now the PS3 Slim being shown to the world, in the Philippians? I believe its pretty fishy. Since Sony was very mad about the PSPgo leak and its ruined their E3.

“People don’t respect confidentiality in this industry,” says Jack Tretton, president and CEO of Sony Computer Entertainment of America. “It’s tough enough to keep a secret within your own company, much less when you speak to third parties.”

If this is their new way to hype, its a good and bad thing.

Good. I personally have went over to my friends house and showed them the leaks, images, and videos. And it makes it very exciting. I even showed my gf and she’s planning on buying me PSPgo :]

Bad. It doesn’t have the big punch when noone knows about it and they announce it in a press release.

Do you believe the “Leaks” are sonys new way to hype or is it just the slip of the tongue and/or “fell off the assembly line and is a prototype.”?

By the way, my name is Tayler, and Thepreppymonk is my PSN id.

    I strongly believe that the slimline “leaks” are simply fake, possibly knock-offs to make people want to buy it, thinking they’re the real deal. It happens all the time, mostly with iPods. Considering the lack of any real evidence, it could also just been a couple guys who made a fake mock-up of the system, just to see how far they can make it last. If the thinline PS3 system that supposedly “leaked” is real, it’s beyond being the ugliest system ever. The aesthetics are just horrible!

    I believe the slim is real, i was just wondering if thesev leaks were real or not. and if they are real, is this a new to hype, by “leaking” things. I’m so tired quotes lol

    I’m sure there will be a PS3 slim, but I doubt the leaks are real.
