214w 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!

Folks, seriously do you really think that Sony would invest several hundred millions dollars on a the Playstation 3 logo and on advertising in order to impress that specific logo in the mind of every consumer just to change it suddenly in something like "PS3"?
Alright, through some studying, the page was forced down by the Chinese government. You can tell from clicking on that image there and reading through the pages.
I'd have to say, that the only reason they would act on this in China is if it were real and Sony sent out a complaint.
However, I won't know more until I get Photoshop running and I can try and look at the image closer.
1. Man making something like this in photoshop is a cake walk.
2. You quite clearly never saw the IGN Legend of Zelda prank
3. Wouldn't that make it a PS2?
However upon reading this
By clicking on that image with the police officer and surfing through the website. I have to say that this may be real, not the final model, but a real slim PS3.
That motto up there is from one of the websites that is linked in that webpage linked by the police officer image. Such a site would have to commissioned by the Chinese Government to be able to say such a thing or else it wouldn't be around.
1. Obviously not a photoshop
2. Who would go to such an expense for some elaborate hoax?
3. Notice on the bottom the plug holes for the screws look exactly the same as the ones on the ps2.
4. They need to cut costs, period! (as any business does.)
Just my opinion but I would have to place my bet that the reason for the mat finish is because everyone complains about how easily the console gets scratched up and fingerprints all over it.
Funny still only 2 usb ports on this one XD
I do think they should still throw some chrome trim in there..
