259w ago - A few rumors to kick off the new week... Portuguese site GamersTek.com (linked above) is reporting that SCE is allegedly going to confirm a PS3 price drop to €299.00 today, noting that Spanish retailers including [Register or Login to view links] and [Register or Login to view links] are already listing PlayStation 3 80GB + LittleBigPlanet bundles at a 25% drop.

Additionally, [Register or Login to view links] is speculating on whether a recently uncovered YouTube 'Making of Batman' clip from the Rocksteady team contains a PS3 Slim at the 1:35 minute mark that was edited out.

A picture of it as well as the video are below, and to quote- roughly translated:





It was a worthy post in the forum NeoGAF and known who started the latest rumors about the declining price of the PlayStation 3.

According to the same, Sony Computer Entertainment Europe will confirm today, Monday 10th of August, that the console will actually fall in price to € 299.00.

To give force to speculation, the chain of Spanish stores Alternate already put the PS3 on sale at that price. In turn, the British site TheSixthAxis contacted SCEE, which responded with the usual 'no comment rumors or speculation'.

If you ask me these are the XDK's. The new one, at the time this movie was made there didn't introduced yet. I don't think it's a PS3 Slim.

Why do you think that it is a Slim??
You'd have to ask the folks at NeoGAF that... as that is where the rumor came from. I can only assume they are speculating it's a PS3 slim because of the censoring in the video though.

First thing that came to my mind: Dev stations!

And that's it I guess - nothing else.
They just don't want that anyone gets the serial number on the back or something.

I was thinking a Dev unit myself, but then why would they bother censoring that when pics of them are all over the net

Another thing I read was it could have been a black XBox 360 but even that I'm sure I've seen many times before so I don't see what the "big deal" would be on it either.

It would be interesting if someone posts the pic uncensored though, just to see what it is hehe
