What is the top made of? A rubber mat? I don't understand. Maybe it's a PS-branded scale. OMG It's Sony's balance board + PS3 all in one!

I hope there is an feature/slot to add a HDD in the 16GB model. *fingers crossed*

It'd be weird to go out of their way to disallow hard drive upgrades. They'd have to create a case specific to the non-hard drive version and it would ultimately hurt their ability to upsell to PS+ and other digital sales. I think the ability to upgrade hard drives is all but certain.

It will be identical to the other "PS3 Uglies" but the HDD slot will be empty on the 16GB model.

$150/150 is seriously good pricing, anywhere in the world.

The PS3 Slim is sexy though, I don't know how they thought this could possibly be a good design.

Or maybe they purposely leaked it to see the community reaction? I don't know.

After looking at the pictures I can't help but be disgusted. Not only is it hideous but the weird ridges are going to be a nightmare for dust. They're not even on the sides, they're right up top! *remembers dusty OG Xbox*

Ummm... to the poster above: the Gamecube looks fucking awesome. Clearly the person who posted it hasn't seen a silver or black GC.

N64 is a lot uglier than that slim you was just a kid & didn't care about the look & grown to love it. but if the new Nintendo looked like that gaf would have a meltdown.

The Nintendo 64 may look strange now but it was alright for its time, don't remember too many complaints. You are just wrong about the Gamecube. OG Xbox, eh, I'll give that one to you until I see this new PS3 slim up close.

$179 or $189 is my guess $149 is to low IMO

the point is if you was to just look at the consoles that you have had over the years & just judge them on the looks most of them are ugly & would look strange to you right now if it was your 1st time seeing them just like this slim is ugly to use now.

What about the original 360? I thought it was pretty damn sexy for 2005 and a big leap from the monster of an Xbox.

All of those save the Atari perhaps look better than this abomination, if it is indeed what the new PS3 model looks like.

Listen, I don't care - it's just a model revision - but those consoles demonstrate at least a few appealing aspect. Gamecube doesn't belong on that list altogether; get a Black Gamecube and it's a very straightforward cube design that has an elegant little handle that still is a nice little quirk.

Xbox I'd definitely take over this one - it's a massive block of unsubtle branding, but at least it has branding. It was distinctive.

N64 system was pretty ugly, sure, but this model still remains uglier.

i know, but either it wont be $150, or they misrepresented the truth in forecasts on purpose :-).

I dont know about USA, but 150 in eastern europe - it will sell... a lot.

p.s. did anyone notice and comment on 190w rating? I think Slim was 250w, at least initial models? If there is actual difference, it might mean some significant hardware revisions.

VCS is the best looking of them all. GameCube is fine, too. Xbox and N64 are ugly.

I didn't like it initially, but now I think it was perhaps the best looking machine of this generation. The new model isn't bad either, some limited editions are gorgeous. Wii is also fine, but no PS3 so far has been a looker.
