303w ago - Update: UltimatePlayStation.com appears to be back online, and Vespene Gas/Editor & Graphics of GameTrailers stated: "Sony can't keep leaks. Spoiler: It's Real"

The Web site this originated from (UltimatePlayStation.com) has been shut down by Sony to kill any evidence of it's existence. However, they have not taken down the YouTube video (below) yet. Enjoy!

To quote: "I'm sorry the video is very short and very low quality, but my phone is ancient and the memory is very low, but I hope you believe me when I say this is in now way a fabrication."

The details are as follows, taken from the Web site now seized by Sony:

•It has a 120GB HDD.
•Two USB Ports




•The 'touch' button for eject and on seems to be gone, and there are now these random buttons.
•The PS icon is now white instead of colored.
•No more card reader
•PLAYSTATION 3 is gone, rather its PS3. It says this on the bottom as well for some reason.
•The guy was selling it with a DualShock 3. Whether it is compatible is another matter.
•The guy was selling it for 20,000 pesos, which is roughly £250, which is roughly $410

If there's any other information on this unit, let us only hope, someone will snatch it up and leak more info on it!!

would they really make a knock-off, go through the trouble of "leaking" images over a rather long period of time, and then only sell a single unit on the black-market in the philippines?

they'd rather produce a few thousands and try to con as many people as possible in a short time, before it becomes widely known as knock-off...

ok here is a good one for yah. my "playstation portable" says PSP on it... only PSP must be a knock off eh.

Lol, it could be haha jk

But still it could be knock off. im just stating the name difference. hopefully soon we could get one of these PS3 slims to play a game, then it would be convincing enough.

The PS3 Slim only has the PS3, when the Official name is Playstation 3. So it still doesnt convince me

I believe it is legit. Pictures of the box have been released. This may be the console that the box belongs to?

Let us see more of this sexy beast!

Well, since they didn't release it yet, and sony still didn't even admit really having a project for a cheaper and smaller version of the ps3, this console could be some kind of test prototype or something like that... It would explain it's ugliness... Pehaps they will still improve the videogame design before the final retail version.

Nice, I wonder if they outsourced the assembly to the Philippines for a cheaper rate? Great find.

I really believe that those who think this is a fake are going to be sorely mistaken. Bottom line is Sony is desperately trying to cut costs in manufacturing the PS3 and the redesign makes sense. Look at the original PS2 compared to the slim PS2, external power supply, motorized disc tray removed.

As much as some of you don't want new PS3 to look like that, bottom line is no one bought a PS3 based on what it looks like. It will still play PS3 games, include a 120GB hard drive and have 2 usb ports along with the same A/V ports in the back as the original PS3. I do think that the price cut won't be much, probably only $50. Even at $50 off Sony is going to loose a lot of money.
