227w ago - I believe this will lead us to a very happy moment or very sad one. It all depends whether you are living in Germany or not.
Rumor said that German Amazon got this item so-called PlayStation 3 Konsole Slim (PS3 Slim) uploaded to their site.
I wish this will be updated soon with a box art and more information.
Anyway, I'm glad Kotaku mentioned this news. We'll see the truth around August 18th.
To quote: Earlier this May, supposed "leaked" photos from a Chinese plant showed what's reported to be the PS3 Slim. The German Amazon site now has a listing for "PlayStation 3 Konsole slim".
Googling the product code number does not show anything else but this listing on Amazon.de.
Retailer listings of unannounced products are always fishy. Ditto for this.

To me that pic looks like it was made with the gamepad added in front of it, versus being a photo taken of an actual unit... but still, I have a feeling between now and August 18 the real PS3 Slim will show itself anyway. It's a smooth looking pic though!
It may be a user pic but it looks really authentic. Could there be the possibility that the pic could be one that got leaked from Sony ?
It couldn't be based on the one that leaked from the factory several weeks back, because it was too low res.
