197w 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 Alternate.es and Pixmania.com are already listing PlayStation 3 80GB + LittleBigPlanet bundles at a 25% drop.
Additionally, NeoGAF 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'.

hmmm i dunno.. those blurred out pics seem to be quite big to be the "slim" version.. maybe it was a Microsoft thing, making sure that the making video didn't just feature PS3s in the office, since the company made this game for both consoles (PS3 and XBox 360). Hmmm. i really doubt the PS3 Slim is in the video.
