304w ago - According to N4G poster Super_Secret (who stated last week that PS3 Firmware 2.80 would be released on Wednesday), the rumored PS3 Slim will arrive lacking some non-gaming features found in current PlayStation 3 console versions.

To quote: The support for other operating systems will be one such featured stripped, as well as other hardware changes, including the on/off switch in the back of the console.

Obviously only time will tell if Super_Secret is correct once again, however, it would make sense considering Sony has already docked features from the original 60GB PS3 in order to offer the current reduced price (and feature) revisions.

haha, yeah, it always seems to work that way. I can't blame them though, really. I'd try laying low as well if a furious corporate started hunting me down.

Correct, the pic was just one I grabbed from Google Images to go with the article, which in itself is still speculation as Sony continues denying a "PS3 Slim" exists.

Slim? Slim?? Well, it's not very tall, granted, but from that picture it looks massively fat! But then, the picture is only speculation I guess...

In all seriousness, the only reason I can see for removing otheros is that apparently on recent PS3s, the flash is tiny and it just boots the main firmware from disk. As otheros uses about 4MB of flash, it *might* be a cost-cutting exercise to reduce this further. Otherwise it seems a bit pointless to remove otheros...

well It looks like a mini ps3 with less features. It might turn the strides for them if they could get the price of ps3 to arround 200 USD. That would be good

Remove the on/off switch? that would seem a desperate move..
