266w ago - Update: [Register or Login to view links] appears to be back online, and Vespene Gas/Editor & Graphics of [Register or Login to view links] stated: "Sony can't keep leaks. Spoiler: It's Real"

The Web site this originated from (UltimatePlayStation.com) has been shut down by Sony to kill any evidence of it's existence. However, they have not taken down the YouTube video (below) yet. Enjoy!

To quote: "I'm sorry the video is very short and very low quality, but my phone is ancient and the memory is very low, but I hope you believe me when I say this is in now way a fabrication."

The details are as follows, taken from the Web site now seized by Sony:

• It has a 120GB HDD.
• Two USB Ports





• The 'touch' button for eject and on seems to be gone, and there are now these random buttons.
• The PS icon is now white instead of colored.
• No more card reader
• PLAYSTATION 3 is gone, rather its PS3. It says this on the bottom as well for some reason.
• The guy was selling it with a DualShock 3. Whether it is compatible is another matter.
• The guy was selling it for 20,000 pesos, which is roughly £250, which is roughly $410

If there's any other information on this unit, let us only hope, someone will snatch it up and leak more info on it!!

would they really make a knock-off, go through the trouble of "leaking" images over a rather long period of time, and then only sell a single unit on the black-market in the philippines?

they'd rather produce a few thousands and try to con as many people as possible in a short time, before it becomes widely known as knock-off...

lmao its too funny that you base your opinion on the silk-screening...

ok here is a good one for yah. my "playstation portable" says PSP on it... only PSP must be a knock off eh.
Lol, it could be haha jk

But still it could be knock off. im just stating the name difference. hopefully soon we could get one of these PS3 slims to play a game, then it would be convincing enough.

Yea but the Slim PS2 also has the "Playstation 2" name on the bottom of the PS2 sign.

The PS3 Slim only has the PS3, when the Official name is Playstation 3. So it still doesnt convince me

There's been a couple of posts now and it has been addressed. I feel I should post a pic. The PS3 slim only has a PS3 embedded on the top of it. As does the PS2 slim.

I believe it is legit. Pictures of the box have been released. This may be the console that the box belongs to?

Let us see more of this sexy beast!
