303w ago - This is being filed as a rumor for the moment, if anyone can read Chinese and do a translation of what exactly these pictures are supposed to be of feel free to comment below.

Could they be of a cost-cutting new PS3 Slim redesign (with a new PS3 font to boot) leaked by Chinese BBS LevelUp, or just pics of a knockoff PS3 clone?

We do know Sony just recently stated there were no plans for a PS3 Slim console version anytime soon.

More details to come as they are available... and more pics are available HERE or linked above!

Anyone else noticing how the box art is a completely different design compared to the alleged mockups? The mock-up system doesn't have the chrome or the shininess, and has the retracted disc thingy. My vote is somebody bought a cheap hong kong knock-off of a PS3, not so hard to imagine - I've seen many cheap clones of popular electronics

However that Zelda thing proves nothing... That's a spoof and didn't cost very much money to make for IGN, so it's a pointless argument drop it please.

If you can't make it doesn't mean some one else can't. There is bound to be some one out there who in the span of a month (probably a Hell of a lot longer for this kinda result though) create something like this. Of course I've gone ahead and done the same thing you have and looked at it. This isn't photoshoped at all. It's unlikely they would ever want to go through some thing like this with Photoshop. If anything a mock up will cost them only around $100 or so, that's plastic, screws and some paint. You then simply take a month or so to make the thing if you know what you are doing.

As for the video, I'm touting it as a prank that cost very little, that was done in the span of around a month.
It proves that yes, people will take the time to do something that messes with people in the end.

I'd have to say, that the only reason they would act on this in China is if it were real and Sony sent out a complaint.
However, I won't know more until I get Photoshop running and I can try and look at the image closer.


1. Man making something like this in photoshop is a cake walk.
2. You quite clearly never saw the IGN Legend of Zelda prank
3. Wouldn't that make it a PS2?
5. Agreed.

However upon reading this

By clicking on that image with the police officer and surfing through the website. I have to say that this may be real, not the final model, but a real slim PS3.

That motto up there is from one of the websites that is linked in that webpage linked by the police officer image. Such a site would have to commissioned by the Chinese Government to be able to say such a thing or else it wouldn't be around.

First off, ones movie spoof is far different than one with the intent to sell another companies patient licensed trademarked product. Anyone can make a home brew movie and it go no where not even be picked up by a movie production company. The Zelda one just so happens to be a good one. There's super hero characters that have come up and they never made it to a film either. Or sequels to movies that get dropped as well.

Second, yes it's pretty clear to see it's just a plastic molding of an unfinished product. This is just a prank to get our attention I say, lol...... and it did.

The console is not shiny because what is shown in the pictures is just a dummy. So this is still work in progress. The product itself may vary from what you've seen now. However all of this really looks authentic. Like a manufacturing plant of Sony.

Even if we shouldn't hear about this for some time, consider it real. It will just take some time until they finished testing/constructing.


I agree with you. I think that, with some backlit LEDs this case could be absolutely stunning.

Not to mention the ugliness of the font...

Yes, they would totally do that. They need to change in order to save themselves from falling. They just announced a loss in profit. A new image is required.
