New firmware seems to be at 3 month intervals nowadays.. (so, all being well, one should turn up in the next couple of weeks?). And that would mean the next firmware would turn up in September.. in time for TGS, and with support for any new PS3 model.
I'm definately wanting a slim PS3.. the leaked pictures looked cool, and if it's quieter than my existing 60GB+BC PAL unit, then I'm all for it.
Eh, it looked kinda crappy but hopefully it was either fake or not the final design.
I'm just tired of every few days a new "PS3 Price drop" rumor, regardless of who said it or what magazine or whatever. My favorite was a while back where there was an article posted here about "speculation on rumors" or something like that. It's getting pretty bad when we have to SPECULATE on RUMORS. What's next, "speculation on rumors of gossip about theories regarding people that might have heard of a PS3 price drop, maybe in june?"
I just ignore it, until I hear something straight from Sony's mouth (press release or announcement at an electronics show).
This in my opinion is wrong. How does the magazine Playstation World know about a price cut and a PS3 slim when they do NOT have contact directly with Sony. The only magazines that do are the Official Playstation (US & UK) magazines.
And Jack Tretton already said at E3 that he hasn't seen anything of a PS3 slim. (Don't believe me go watch gametrailers.com)
So this is all fake.
And why are people getting so worked up by a PS3 slim? It is no different to the normal PS3 except for being smaller... so what's the big deal?
