If all DLC came tied to $13 figurines, I'd consider all DLC to be free

Real Slim Ps3 coming for WiiU launch - as expected.

Buying if they price drop this fall.
I already have a unit but it's overseas and I miss Blu-rays.

finally, a non-square PS3 Slim. They probably took out the PSU? Too bad I already bought a 3004 late last year.

I think they carry a different serial number prefix (not CECH). Not 100% sure though.
Yeah, that'd make sense. To me it just looks like the bottom of a much larger PS3, not sure that's what the public is craving, figured it'd be a devStation or something.

It is likely a cheaper to produce unit that runs on less watts or something that also uses less plastic, There are around 4 or 5 versions of the PS2 Slim, and most didn't seem to noticed the minor changes Sony did every year or so.

so jeff rigby was all right.
Some on this board like to give Jeff grief, but the guy does his research and his educated guesses are just that. Well educated guesses.

Jeff seems to get proven right more then he is proven wrong.

Hmm, what else could they cut? Remove one of the USB ports or even the HDMI port, aiming the console at people still relying on composite, S-video or component?

Anyway, I suspect this console will resembe the original fat PS3 more, only much smaller and probably flatter on the top, without the chrome trim.

It looks the same as the original Fat PS3.... weird.


It won't happen, but image if it was as small as a Wii? So awesome! :)
The only reason is cooling. If they make it so the HDD isn't upgradable and the PSU is external, that leaves BDROM and heat sink. If they have shrunk the Cell and GPU process or put them on a single die (unlikely) then they could manage the heat much better. Redesign and price drop... the last big push for the PS3 to get some momentum into PS4?
