312w 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!

LOL it's like April's Fools all over again...

This is obviously a fake folks. Don't wait or lose any sleep on it. It's definitely NOTHING close to what Sony has in the works. The slim version should have something of the appeal of the fat version, which this one totally destroys, and i wouldn't mind bringing in my hammer to greet this one...

the console in the middle picture doesnt match the one on the cardboard box. the one on the box has the recessed bit with the eject button and power button and the console in the picture doesn't..

unless they're the outer casing of the new ps3 console.

i hope that they think forward with this console and implement an upgradeable graphics chip and ram.

For teh winnzz!!!! over Micro$hafted

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.

Agreed.. also this pic has Sony's name and PS symbol on it.. why would a knock-off cloner bother with those.



Also, I just noticed the original source (LevelUP BBS) has now removed the page: http://bbs.levelup.cn/showtopic-803951.aspx

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.

But lets not make conclusions now. Ill wait how it looks in final.

That being said, maybe they gave up the more elegant "shiny" design for one they can offer people for $100 less? Or maybe it's just a clone..

This is sony we're talking about, not microsoft
