July 13, 2009 // 6:28 am - 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!!

That country is always full of fake crap. Also the PS3 is not called the PS3 the whole brand and advertising is built around "Playstation 3". Matt finish will not be on the slim either.

Its harder to find anything real in the phillippines than it is to buy a fake or a brick in a box.

oh yah then why does my playstation 2 box say playstation 2 and the unit says PS2 on the top

Its a knock-off, just look at the terrible quality of it.

Like other people have said, people go to lengths to make their rip-off product look legit, just check out the fake iphones theres hundreds of them and some look almost exactly like the real thing.

If these people want to prove this stuff and not keep starting silly internet rumors, lets have a video of a real ps3 disc being inserted into this thing and seeing someone play a game.

Plus also, Since when has Sony ever called their system PS3? i know the Playstation 2 had "PS2" on its Case but it also had on the bottom of it Playstation 2.

So why would sony start naming their system just PS3?

Probably the same retarded manufacturer who made this

That's what I meant, with this people you never know. The issue here, at least for me, is that the guy and the place are not good sources; a blurry picture of a PS3 Slim being assembled at Sony headquarters would have much more credibility than this video, again, for me .

But I guess that it all comes down to one thing: Wait and see!

2. In latin-america, piracy always try to take advantage of good people, by selling them all kind of useless-not-real stuff .

3. Just take a look at the poor, poor design ... I mean, if sony really wants to sell this obviously cheap 'thing', well, I just woulnd't do .

Ohh boy, I think I must check on a map before posting anything , sorry, my mystake. But I think that piracy always has a lot to see in these cases
