July 18, 2009 // 7:23 pm - It appears either IGN's "having a laugh" on the subject of PS3 Slim, or someone just made a rather large booboo.

Speaking in the latest Game Scoop! podcast, an IGN staffer appears to confirm the site has a PS3 Slim. The other speakers then say the console is "under wraps" and someone timestamps the recording to edit the comment out.

Guess someone forgot to make the cut. Either that or it's all a "joke".

Here's the transcript, to quote:

"Because we have one for real."

"Yeah, but that's..."

"Yeah, but that's under wraps."

"Sorry, I wasn't supposed to say that, was I?"

"We can edit that out. David can edit that out."

"45 minutes. OK."

You can listen to the clip at the link. Go from 45 minutes. The comment comes at 45.35.

I don't think this is big news.. Sony just cant stop leaking information (PSPGo) i also saw a leak in one of sony's buildings.. that has a poster of christian bale (Dark knight, Terminater salvation) stars in the Metal Gear movie... all that im really excited for is the possibility of backwards compatibillity (so its true wat they say "you dont know what you have until its gone" lol

I'm not saying it isn't real, but they sound like they're joking around. They've just been taking about whether the previous reports are fake or not, and then say "whatever, it looks real... well err, maybe he scooped us then, we've got a gamescoop TV guy going up tomorrow, going up today by the time you hear this that's kind of along these same lines of this ps3 slim. Cos we have one for real... "

Just sounds like they're messing around to me.

considering that it is not a joke, wouldn't they have been able to check the firmware. Would give us a lot of insight on firmwire 3.00.
