Question fake or real? PS3 Slim video and new image

PS3 Slim new INFO! jul 16th

PS3 Slim video and new image


The PS3 Slim is, apparently, selling on the streets of the Philippines at a local underground street vender. They just got in the fabled Ps3 Slim and are selling it to happy buyers. Whether this is real or not, probably a very solid fake, it still looks too well done to be completely fake with all the reports of the PS3 Slim surfacing lately. There have been reports of Sony shipping the Slim as early as July, so perhaps this “fell off the truck” and found itself on the underground market.

Some of the specs revealed by this buyer are:
- 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

Here's a video for more "proof". ??????????

Fake. Slim PS3 will not look like the previously fake shots. When it comes, it will have a smaller footprint. Making it thinner is pretty much pointless.

P.S. If you hadn't seen the BS shots that came out a couple of months ago, the item in this video would be unrecognizable it's so blurry and poorly filmed.

I did some image captures and used my CSI photo image filter to clean the images up a little bit:

PS3 Slim Video Leaked: "It's Real"
PlayStation 3
+ See Full Image

With the deception the Internet can afford these days, it can be difficult to say something is "real" and we refuse to label anything "official" until we hear it from Sony. But even so, this has certainly kicked off a massive Internet stir.

It seems a video of the PS3 Slim from the Philippines has been leaked, and as you can see, it evidently shows the fancy new PS3 Slim being sold very prematurely by an underground street vendor. Supposedly, the system has a 120GB hard drive, two USB ports, a PS3 icon instead of "PlayStation 3," no card readers, and a few other interesting cosmetic tidbits. For instance, it seems the "touch" button eject is gone, and although the vendor was selling it with the Dual Shock 3, we don't know if that's the default controller for this new machine. As for a price, it all boils down to about $410 in American money, but that doesn't really help us determine an actual retail cost. Not long after this video was leaked, a GameTrailers employee has said "Sony can't keep leaks" and this PS3 Slim "is real." The last we heard about the PS3 Slim was that Sony might actually be working to phase out one of the models currently available (the 80GB one, it seems), and that we might see the thinner machine on store shelves before the summer was over. Others believe we won't hear an announcement until the Tokyo Game Show in the fall.

For our part, we don't really want to speculate further. All we can remember is Jack Tretton standing on the stage at E3 and making a joke; he thanked everyone for coming, even if they did already know a few of the big announcements...you know, like the PSP Go.

I also think the video is fake since Hon Hai Precision is crawling with security keeping an eye on those new PS3 Slims.

Some say 349 and a "source" at Hon Hai said a Sony Corporate suit let slip that 299 was a good pricepoint.


But I say BS until Sony Corporate says 299, 299, 299!!

So you and Hon Hai are tight?

997$'s is pretty expensive.
