Rumors circulated the Internet recently regarding a supposedly leaked set of photos of Sony's "PS3 Slim."
Previous hardware choices on Sony's part, including the slimmer PS2 and the PSP-2000, would suggest that Sony would eventually create a slimmer version of its powerhouse hardware, but would it be so soon after the system's launch?
To quote: Today, we received word that a trustworthy US GameStop employee discussed the matter with a Sony merchandizing representative.
When the leaked photos were brought up in private conversation, the merchandizing representative was immediately surprised that the photos were "released already," but then hastily dismissed the subject when the rep realized that it was regarding a rumor.
Could this reaction indicate that the PS3 Slim is more real than we originally thought?
We certainly take this information with a grain of salt, but it at least enhances the possibility that a PS3 Slim will arrive sometime in the future.
