PS3 Slim Rumors Popping Up Everywhere



While lots of people tend to still deny the rumor that a PS3 Slim is in the making, it doesn’t stop the rumors from popping up all over. There are many false promises coming out this generation as we all know but every great change in this industry starts out with a rumor that seems false when its presented.

Today on NeoGaf there are 2 individuals who seemingly popped in to spread some information at the same time. The information they have is the same as well but both decline to expel their sources.

They are not the first sources on NeoGaf to say they have trusted sources saying it is in fact true nor the first people in the industry.

I’m not one to jump on forum rumors, but I think there are way of rationing information that is more true then not and I’m leaning towards true for these guys.

Ok, somebody i trust confirmed to me that the ps3 slim will be released around september. I can’t give more details.

Also the old ps3 80 Gb will be priced at 300€ in august. But i see that is already known.

I’ve received the same information. More details coming before next week.

The 300 € price for the big rig is applying for both the console only and the bundles.

Both of these posters are saying that the price of the slim will not be as low as we want/hope/expect it to be.

Only time can tell now, but I’m 95% certain its on its way. Too many insiders have spilled the beans already.

Is this sony’s new way to hype?


I’ve been noticing their are more and more “leaks” now-a-days compared to then when they formally announce things.

Think back to when the PSPgo was announced and that Qore video was released early. Here. That and now the PS3 Slim being shown to the world, in the Philippians? I believe its pretty fishy. Since Sony was very mad about the PSPgo leak and its ruined their E3.

“People don’t respect confidentiality in this industry,” says Jack Tretton, president and CEO of Sony Computer Entertainment of America. “It’s tough enough to keep a secret within your own company, much less when you speak to third parties.”

If this is their new way to hype, its a good and bad thing.

Good. I personally have went over to my friends house and showed them the leaks, images, and videos. And it makes it very exciting. I even showed my gf and she’s planning on buying me PSPgo :]

Bad. It doesn’t have the big punch when noone knows about it and they announce it in a press release.

Do you believe the “Leaks” are sonys new way to hype or is it just the slip of the tongue and/or “fell off the assembly line and is a prototype.”?

By the way, my name is Tayler, and Thepreppymonk is my PSN id.

PS3 Slim spotted in the wild?


This video supposedly came from a street market retailer in the Philippines. Looks very similar in design to other rumors we have seen. I don’t like how most of the new PS3’s only have 2 usb ports. I still have a 60 GB version PS3 and I use all 4 USB ports. Plus I need to unplug one to plug in my Tekken arcade stick. I use the memory card slots all the time too. Anyway, do you think it’s real? GameTrailers seems to think it’s real..

PS3 Slim in Production?


Apparently, Hon Hai Precision Industry Company Ltd. has been awarded a contract for a “hardware variation of the PlayStation3” and the report, according to IGN, states that “the new hardware will be a smaller, lighter version” of the system.

Not only that, but the report also says that the systems are supposed to start shipping in July. No official word from Sony on this, and if it is true, then Sony has very little time for an official announcement. Please take this with a grain of salt.

Sony Patents Emotion Engine Emulation For Cell Processors aka PS2 Backwards Compatibility



Not sure how and not sure when, but Sony has patents to this technology that directly makes me think BC is coming back eventually. This is the first remote hint that this could be returning to us at some point and time.

For all those without a BC PS3, this may be your dream come true.
