PS3 Slim Rumors Popping Up Everywhere


2crueis

While lots of people tend to still deny the rumor that a PS3 Slim is in the making, it doesn’t stop the rumors from popping up all over. There are many false promises coming out this generation as we all know but every great change in this industry starts out with a rumor that seems false when its presented.

Today on NeoGaf there are 2 individuals who seemingly popped in to spread some information at the same time. The information they have is the same as well but both decline to expel their sources.

They are not the first sources on NeoGaf to say they have trusted sources saying it is in fact true nor the first people in the industry.

I’m not one to jump on forum rumors, but I think there are way of rationing information that is more true then not and I’m leaning towards true for these guys.

Ok, somebody i trust confirmed to me that the ps3 slim will be released around september. I can’t give more details.

Also the old ps3 80 Gb will be priced at 300€ in august. But i see that is already known.

I’ve received the same information. More details coming before next week.

The 300 € price for the big rig is applying for both the console only and the bundles.

Both of these posters are saying that the price of the slim will not be as low as we want/hope/expect it to be.

Only time can tell now, but I’m 95% certain its on its way. Too many insiders have spilled the beans already.

    dont deny that there’s one in the works, I just dont believe the pics released, especially the logo. If anything, the PS3 logo will be the one they use now (Its the spiderman font, but instead of the whole word, its just PS3 now). They would also most likely keep the piano black finish and the P3 logo itself will be silver in color.

    No I believe they are real, but when I see these pics. The look like just a empty shell.

    if it is real, then its the ugliest thing ever. to save costs, they’d probably also make it a flip top like the PS1 and PS2, instead of a self-loading slot. All of Sony’s slim-line models looked aesthetically better than the original models, why take a step backwards with the PS3?

    I believe the model in the image above is the PS3 Slim.

    I also think that this model is for real…

    That thing looks really ugly, it dont look like a sony product. Its funny that the people that want price cut are people that already have one :/ . Even if it was at 300 bucks people WILL still complain. God this madness will never end will it?

    @ Trieloth:
    Exactly my point on the design. it looks like a really cheap piece of junk. Sony isn’t going to do that to their own product. Everything Sony makes, really, looks aesthetically pleasing (meaning, it looks good and fits well with its surroundings). This, on the other hand… I just don’t see how people could think that crap looks like it could be the actual slimline model. Like I said, if it is, then Sony’s PlayStation design department is probably full of monkeys and this is the result from them throwing their feces everywhere :P

    okay we need communication or direct contact from someone in the factory that makes the playstation for sony and secondly we need details on how the factory works and what’s their policies.
    and we need to know if the systems will be real and get accurate specs on the systems. apperantly they say that they will use legal action with pics so why not the info ( at least we will finally know )
