As the old saying goes, if you see news before it gets posted on the PS3 News portal feel free to post it in the forum and we'll promote it to the mainpage as well... usually within 12 hours, 24/7/365.

The news was actually from the 12th of December. The news just went "viral" a couple of hours ago though.
