I wonder how Kaz will introduce the slim. He may as well just say, "here's the slim, now, moving on..."
First there will be 40 minutes of mind-numbingly boring statistics about how many consoles have been sold, some boring diagrams and tables.

"And now, I am pleased to present the new model of the PS3, the PS3 SLIM!"

Then release dates.

Then price.

I'm actually kind of upset to see the fake best buy advertisement made by some shitty blog to bring in hits is making the rounds in serious(?) publications. Fuck those guys.

If the slim is coming out at 299$ why aren't existing PS3's on store shelves being dropped to 299$ to clear the dist channel?
Cuz apparently there aren't exactly a lot of 80GB units in the channel to begin with anymore. The 160GB units certainly aren't going to get a $200 drop.

So I was bored last night and wanted to get my hand on some quick internet fame. Step one: get an old k-mart ad. inner-G nailed it.



Step 2: reverse the center image so that it looks like print from the other side, instead of just washing out the entire area with white (which would look fake).



Step 3: take cakefoo's glorious pic and match the font as best as possible. Go into PR mode and type out your best PS3 description.



Step 4: add grain, brightness, etc. until it looks really close to the source image.



Step 5: at this point it looks good, but still very noticeable photoshop. So I could continue to work on it for a few hours more, OR I can do the easy "secret industry spy" route and take off camera pics of it.







Step 6: email Kotaku, Joy-stiq and Gizmondo to see who will bite first.

my name is phil and my friend works at a kmart headquarters. he sent me these flyer pics from a future flyer about th eps3 slim. i dont think ive seen these pics on the itnernet yet so if you do use them dont tell my friends real name i dont want to get him in trouble. anyawys sorry if youve seen these already but i had to emial ya!
The winner is Gizmondo, who asked me some follow up questions AFTER posting it on their site.

And that's how it's done. :lol

:facepalm this has been my entire argument as to why the slim wont even be 299 here in the states. its the about same as the 160 unit feature wise and looks better. it'd still be a $200 price drop.

so it looks like they just shopped a ps3 over that usb sticks thing in the middle... the camera, the 360 controller in the top left.. you can see where the white square around the ps3 bit runs over onto the 360 in the top, looks kind of weird...
Good catch!

Now, it´s been established that both the BestBuy and the Kmart ads are fake. So no credible leaks for the US yet about date and price.

chubigans, you would've pulled it off too...if it weren't for those pesky gaffers!

:lol :lol :lol


But seriously, it's 99% believable imo. Only thing which someone mentioned is the "$" sign next to 299 isn't the same size as the other things in the ad.

Bravo, tho sir! :D

Chubs.... 1080P and Blu-Ray... incorrect usage :)
The perfectionist in me is crying over those small details (and the dollar sign! Gah! How could I miss that!). Maybe I should leak out a more perfected one. :lol

I had to restrain myself from hiding the wrestlers in the pic, btw. :lol

Oh man I should have totally done that though!
