    Sony may be at it again if these artist impressions are to be believed, maybe as soon as this autumn. If the real thing looks anything like this i personally think they are trying to make the PS£ look like the wii to cash in again, check out the pics for yourselves.

    So it may be an artist impression but I really don't like that thin bit of plastic that sticks up.

    Probably is real. Imitation is a best seller these days.

    Ba dum dum, ching!
    I'll be here all night, tip your waitresses!

    But seriously if they put out a PS3 that looked that much like a Wii I would say Sony has some serious originality issues. Honestly the current design is a little weird for my tastes, but my only real complaint is that it has a giant curved surface which prevents stacking. I mean if any system needs to avoid having other things stacked on it it's the 360... not the PS3. [​IMG]

    Why would you want that? You leave your PS3 on horizontal? Dude! That's so last-gen! We use our consoles on vertical now! [​IMG]

    And I still think those are fake.. Sony would have to be really stupid to make something that look so much like the Wii [​IMG]

    Sony usually release a slim version when the sales of the console are falling. The PS3 hasn't even taken off yet. I can see it being a few years before a slim one is released.

    That PS3 is a mockup, Anyone who thinks one would come out so early, is mental.

    Don't be surprised. Sony has a rabid addiction to SKUs. Consider how many minor revisions PS1 had, and PS2 is still getting.

    Massive Overheating PS3s HELL YEAH!! [​IMG]
    And again , sony steals ideas from his opponents.
    I hope they all suffer from overheating. KEKEKEKEK!


    NOTFanboyism:
    The new design looks weird.
    Far too small , I don't think it will be that small.
    There is no room for anything.


    €dit:

    Olol , didn't read enough , sorry!
    So this is a mockup.
    Noone would ever made such a piece of crap , I should have known it.

    oh and btw
    Even the PS2 gets a facelift!

    Its just not possible to shrink the tech in the PS3 into such a small form factor at this point in time, even if you delegated the power brick to external again. Or at least not at a price that is anywhere near reasonable.
