Sony doubling PS3 Manufacture Orders


Digitimes reports that demand for different key PS3 components is roughly doubling.

The most likely explanations:

  1. Sony is gearing up for the launch of a new PS3 model (such as the rumored slimline)
  2. Sony is planning a price drop and is ramping up supply to satisfy the anticipated demand surge.
  3. Both

I’d imagine that Sony is planning to launch the slimline at the same time as the price drop to create a bigger impact than the two events would have separately.

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.
