A slimline console ...
.... to match the slimline games selection, then. There's a certain irony in that.
Will be interesting to see if they can keep the thing cool *and* quiet - the upside of the current PS3 was that it was very, *very* quiet but at the same time it did a wonderful second job as a space heater, even compared to a 360.
Hetz Ben Hamo: the current PS3 Blu-ray drive is a slot-loader anyway, although I suspect they can probably be had cheaper nowadays. Also, as far as I know, the current Cell processors are being fabbed at 45nm. Not sure if there are plans for a 32nm process as I got the hell out of the semiconductor business a while ago and count myself lucky as a result.
Still, if it is real and it does sell then good luck to 'em.
Mine's the one with the slimline PS2 in the pocket.
