Is This The PS3 Slim?

1 min read


Rumours, conjecture, assumption and hypothesis – these are all words that describe the current state of the PS3 Slim. We know that it’s coming – at some stage – but beyond that, details are scant. A video from some backwater market in the Philippines that purports to be real footage of a manufactured PS3 Slim has hit the internet – showing us…not very much other than blur in motion, and a new logo that’s reminiscent of the PSP Go!

This is more than likely a fake – dodgy Asians* have a knack for producing dodgy replicas of things. It could also be real though; those same dodgy Asians* simultaneously have a knack for getting their hands on things way before they should.

Hit the jump to see the incredibly dodgy shakycam of what may or may not be a PS3 Slim – and let us know what you think. Real? Not Real?

*PS : Before I set you all on some xenophobic rampage, not all Asians are dodgy – I happen to know some rather agreeable ones.

Editor. I’m old, grumpy and more than just a little cynical. One day, I found myself in possession of a NES, and a copy of Super Mario Bros 3. It was that game that made me realise that games were more than just toys to idly while away time – they were capable of being masterpieces. I’m here now, looking for more of those masterpieces.

  • ssshhh don’t tell everyone 😉

  • ps3

    I imagine this si the one without Blu ray? I had a discussion with a few friends and they all feel a PS3 without a Blu ray is pointless, but at least it would increase the gaming community.

    must’ve been a really short discussion, it would completely kill the gaming community. The games are on bluray…

  • Actually the games can stay on Blu-Ray discs but the ability to play Blu-Ray movies and the royalty that entails can be removed.
