The rumors follow the news that Sony is informing Japanese retailers that the 80GB PS3 model will not be shipping after August 8th, while Sony has cut the cost of its 160GB PlayStation 3 bundle from Amazon by $50.

To quote: "Sony are looking to make a big splash at GamesCom, so it we'll see big hardware and software news coming out of their Press Conference," said Associate Editor of PSM3, Andy Hartup.

"There's little doubt PS3 Slim will happen at some point - PSone and PS2 went through the same treatments - and GamesCom seems like a prime time to unveil it. I wouldn't bet against a PS3 Slim / Uncharted 2 bundle appearing this October."
