IGN has found a few factory leaks pictures of a possible slim line PS3.
It looks like a PS3 that has been cut in half to look less like ths imfamous "George Foreman Grill" look. Now, if this has full backward compatiblty and a good price, I'll buy it!

If it's true, I'll be disappointed to already have one myself, but I'd still be happy if it means better sales for the platform.
Come on, friends,
To the bear arcades again.

Yeah, I mean if it has what I want on it, then I'll get one. I don't care too much if they'll only slap a 40-60GB drive in as long as they have full backward compatiblity it's a winner IMO. I can get the chance to play PS3 games like MGS4, Valkria Chronocles and Disgaea 3. Plus others that are on the PSN.

That thing is fake and it's hideous.
If that were real I wouldn't even buy one.

If it was less than 200 dollars and shinier, I would buy it, but I doubt that will happen.

Who wouldn't? That would be absurdly cheap. It is indeed ugly though. Hopefully it's just a prototype if it's real.

I kinda like this new look. Sure it's not shiny, but it's very thin, thiner than the Wii. OK it's about the size of an A3 sheet of paper, but I like how slin it is. It would mide among the other crap I keep in my room, lol.

I like the thinness, but the proportions make it look weird. Too wide.

I'd rather it be smaller overall than just thinner. Still takes up a lot of room. Plus I have my 60GB model that has the Emotion Engine, so I won't be letting go of it anytime soon.

Well Lucky you, us Brits and Europeans never received a PS3 with the Emotion Engine in it. The first Euro 60GB PS3 models used XBox style emulation to play PS1/2 games.

Puh-leeze...that thing would overheat faster than an Xbox 360! There IS a good reason the PS3 is so big, y'know...
I'm pretty sure they couldn't actually cram an entire PS3 into that small of a shell anyway, even if they DID remove all cooling systems. It doesn't even look like there's room for the hard drive to me!

The PS3's features would no way fit inside that. Unless it's a metre wide and it's just well photographed. But yeah, I doubt this exists and if it does, it will have issues and will be pulled off the market.
It's pretty damn ugly too. I like the proportions of the PS3 as they are.

1- Do any of you know what a 'die shrink' is? As manufacturing processes evolve, the needed chips get smaller, use less energy, are cheaper to make, and produce less heat. What you're saying could be just as easily applied to the GBA-- "Look at the size of the SNES! There's no way something more powerful can be handheld!", and so on through every technological advance since at least the invention of the microchip. We all know that consoles pack more power into less space all the time, why is this so unbelievable? In fact, if I remember correctly, the latest PS3 mother boards don't even take the full width of the console, it's very easy to imagine it's a transitional step toward this shorter model. 2- Keep in mind the PS3 was announced four years ago, the technology has progressed a lot since then. The PS1 had it's slimmed down version released five or six years after the console was released. The slimline PS2 was released about four years after console launch. It's not surprising to see the smaller PS3 coming out in about three years, especially given the PS3's lackluster sales. 3- How in the world do people think this sleek, smooth design is uglier than the bulky George Foreman Grill model currently out? The only real problem is the bit still jutting out on the left. Keep in mind that it'll look different on a shelf than when taken from all angles, too. I'd prefer a Wii/PS2 style simple box, but I don't see Sony doing that.
Hopefully Sony learned the lesson about not having backwards compatibility. At least, they could offer it on the higher range model; I know I'd spend an extra $100 to replace my PS2.
