August 1, 2009 // 12:02 am - I believe this will lead us to a very happy moment or very sad one. It all depends whether you are living in Germany or not.

Rumor said that German Amazon got this item so-called PlayStation 3 Konsole Slim (PS3 Slim) uploaded to their site.

I wish this will be updated soon with a box art and more information.

Anyway, I'm glad Kotaku mentioned this news. We'll see the truth around August 18th.

To quote: Earlier this May, supposed "leaked" photos from a Chinese plant showed what's reported to be the PS3 Slim. The German Amazon site now has a listing for "PlayStation 3 Konsole slim".

Googling the product code number does not show anything else but this listing on

Retailer listings of unannounced products are always fishy. Ditto for this.

Achtung: dies ist NICHT die Slim Version!

NEIN! Ich verkaufe hier KEINE PS3 SLIM,

They don't sell a PS3 Slim... they both sell a 60GB Euro PS3.

Almost new condition. For those who can't speak German.

To me that pic looks like it was made with the gamepad added in front of it, versus being a photo taken of an actual unit... but still, I have a feeling between now and August 18 the real PS3 Slim will show itself anyway. It's a smooth looking pic though!

It couldn't be based on the one that leaked from the factory several weeks back, because it was too low res.

I hope they will release the product info soon, so we can see what's inside the Slim.

Still, if Sony has cut their PS3 costs by 70% and all the other sources (IGN to GameTrailers to 1Up and so on) have been hinting at it (plus the leaked pics, video, box) the only ones who don't want to let on a PS3 Slim is coming at this point is Sony so they can sell their old stock.

The big question is... when a PS3 Slim comes, do I buy one?

The advantage of getting one (for me) would be to keep my original PS3 at 1.10 FW while I could update the Slim's if I wanted, plus I'd have a "launch day" Slim in case Sony further strips down things from it in the future.

Obviously the disadvantage would be coughing up another $299 or whatever it will cost though, still... I just might. It's not like I can't sell my 60GB fat PS3 down the road, it even has PS2 backwards compatibility support.
