Rumor: New PS3 Design Leaked by LevelUp, or Just a Knockoff?

285w ago - This is being filed as a rumor for the moment, if anyone can read Chinese and do a translation of what exactly these pictures are supposed to be of feel free to comment below.

Could they be of a cost-cutting new PS3 Slim redesign (with a new PS3 font to boot) leaked by Chinese BBS LevelUp, or just pics of a knockoff PS3 clone?

We do know Sony just recently stated there were no plans for a PS3 Slim console version anytime soon.

More details to come as they are available... and more pics are available HERE or linked above!

The console is not shiny because what is shown in the pictures is just a dummy. So this is still work in progress. The product itself may vary from what you've seen now. However all of this really looks authentic. Like a manufacturing plant of Sony.

Even if we shouldn't hear about this for some time, consider it real. It will just take some time until they finished testing/constructing.


I agree with you. I think that, with some backlit LEDs this case could be absolutely stunning.

First off




Second,
It is indeed ugly, but upon looking closer at this thing with pain, I can tell you, it's not a final model if it is real. This is likely a mock up design they had in house.

Not to mention the ugliness of the font...

Yes, they would totally do that. They need to change in order to save themselves from falling. They just announced a loss in profit. A new image is required.
