    Before I pay them to fix my broken one, I think I may wait to see if this is real or not.

    Probably not much. A few years in, components get cheaper and smaller. Put in one of the more modern Blu-Ray drives that are a lot smaller than the first year ones, and you have most of the room for the slimmer model.

    I'm calling BS on it.

    Really don't like the way this looks either.

    Also, should it be real, and if it ends up with bc and Sony doesn't patch current PS3's for backwards compatibility (and that is all it would take to get it), I'm gonna be fucking pissed.

    Yes it's fine, I make sure it doesn't overheat by not playing it, unless I REALLY need to (TMNT this weekend with three buddies, Mass Effect, and Infinite Undiscovery, which is still taking second place to Vakyria). But I still like the Aliens-inspired look, because we all know that Halo doesn't have any influence by Cameron's Aliens.

    Unfortunately, the 360 needs a bigger case, not a smaller one. Putting the 360 in a smaller case would cause so much heat that it would make a wormhole that will put you back in bed where a plane engine will fall on you.

    Do you want a plane engine to fall on you? I didn't think so.

    Interesting.
    Though you can probably bet that if it is redesigned then the BC will be removed.

    And did the PS2 price drop when the slim was released?

    I might have to get one if there is a price drop as well.

    Well I've heard reports that sony isn't going to come out with a next gen system anytime soon, so maybe this is their way of coming out with something; by changing an existing product.

    I personally don't care if this is true or not. I see absolutely no need to buy something that does the exact same thing my current one does, but just looks different.

    Can Sony really afford to do a redesign at this point in the game? I mean they've been hemorrhaging as is with the PS3. I guess they'll do whatever it takes (throw more money at it) to try to improve their market share. I don't think it would be wise to unveil a new slimmer PS3 at E3 and undercut the PSP-Go. After all, the PSP is hurting FAR MORE than the PS3 is. I don't know, with these re-designs, it seems like Sony is kinda...desperate at this stage of the game.

    I've seen this rumor flying around, and saw the pics too. But it feels too early for a redesign. Maybe in a few years we'll see one, but I'm really not expecting one anytime soon.
