268w 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!!

Complete FAKE

The guy videoing it is asking a guy in a shop selling in the background, fake jeans, shitty electrical fans and hairdryers...

That country is always full of fake crap. Also the PS3 is not called the PS3 the whole brand and advertising is built around "Playstation 3". Matt finish will not be on the slim either.

Its harder to find anything real in the phillippines than it is to buy a fake or a brick in a box.
oh yah then why does my playstation 2 box say playstation 2 and the unit says PS2 on the top

lol i lot of piracy electronics is going on in the Philippines and even if you bought that ps3 slim in the Philippines, you ll get piss off coz it usually defective ... but sony will eventually release ps3 slim in the near future..
you know half the electronics we use are manufactured in the Philippines? cheap labor.

Its a knock-off, just look at the terrible quality of it.

Like other people have said, people go to lengths to make their rip-off product look legit, just check out the fake iphones theres hundreds of them and some look almost exactly like the real thing.

If these people want to prove this stuff and not keep starting silly internet rumors, lets have a video of a real ps3 disc being inserted into this thing and seeing someone play a game.

Plus also, Since when has Sony ever called their system PS3? i know the Playstation 2 had "PS2" on its Case but it also had on the bottom of it Playstation 2.

So why would sony start naming their system just PS3?
