PS3 Slim in Production Already?

1 min read

The rumour mill grinds again – and this time it’s milling (once again) over the oft rumoured PS3 Slim. Demonstrative of Sony’s inability to not leak information, word comes from the far east that two Taiwanese manufacturers have been granted licence to manufacture the brand new PS3-on-a-diet. The companies in question, Foxconn and Pegatron (Not a dastardly shape-shifting robot) are expected to start shipping out as early as this very month – with units expected to hit retail in August.

This fits in well with earlier rumours of an impending “price cut,” delivered via the cheaper to produce PS3 slim. Hopefully they’ll have also rumoured software-driven backwards compatibility.

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.
