Slim PS3 is real – Well according to the lawyers it is

2 min read

What’s the easiest way to confirm a rumour? Just post up some leaked pictures and wait for the legal letter to arrive.

If it arrives promptly then you know the pics are real and you can proceed with the stories…

Well this is what has happened to Engadget overnight and luckily for us it seems that Endadget are big enough to take the lawyers on, and have therefore not only not taken down the images but have also posted up the legal letter itself.

Dear Sir,

We just find that the following web pages on your website contain some confidential document and photos, which were highly possibly illegally released and posted:

In order to protect the confidential information and prevent you from further legal issues and infringements, please immediately remove those pages and keep our request confidential. If you have any question regarding this issue, please feel free to contact us.

Your cooperation is deeply appreciated.
Best regards

Obviously Engadget missed the confidential part

    Cant blame them really.

    Nothing can kill current PS3 sales better than knowing a slim/cheaper version is being released soon.

  • I haven’t heard many people complain about the thickness of the current unit, but yeah I think everyone will just hold out for a cheaper one if they knew it was coming

    Knowing slim versions of the PS.
    They will be cheaper but the quality will also be rubbish.

  • WitWolfyZA

    Does this mean it will be cheaper?

  • WitWolfyZA

    The question is if its true… Why not reduce the price of the current PS3 to motivate people to get the Slimer PS3 when announced?
