back to article Sony pooh-poohs PS3 redesign claims

Rumours that a redesigned PlayStation 3 has been created are false, at least according to Sony. Over the past few days rumours began emerging online that the firm’s poised to unveil a new-look PS3 at the E3 games show in Los Angeles next month.

Again, horseshit Sony, PS3-slim is coming this year, the same amount of time as it took for the PS2-slim to arrive after the original launch.

Isn't most of the PS3's bulk heatsink and a massive fan? I guess you could have a smaller, noiser, more failure prone model. You could make it use laptop drives to save space internally too, I guess. I think it also took much longer in terms of the PS2's lifespan for the slimline model to surface.

Europe is Sony's bitch

Sony UK maybe aren't lying when they say they have "no plans for a redesigned PS3".

(Though I'm sure you won't hear Mark complaining about it.)

Agree with Joe K

Those pics certainly look genuine.

Not surprised, they did it with the PS2 as already mentioned, and also with the PSX (remember the PSOne? Didn't sell amazingly well I don't think).

I might even get one, I'm moving ever closer towards buying a PS3 and a slimline one would be more attractive than the current behemoth.
