PS3 Slim Console Surfaces on Black Market in the Philippines
Update: UltimatePlayStation.com appears to be back online, and Vespene Gas/Editor & Graphics of http://forums.gametrailers.com/thread/ps3-slim-footage----------/864856?page=2 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!!
wow, the design is so simple. IF this is real, and almost everything is pointing that it is,....well its may too simple (unless thats what they wanted to go for). Are there any advantages and/or disadvantages from the Normal PS3 to the Slim PS3?
