This is supposedly Sony's slimline PS3

Snapped in China and posted on a local blog, the various images appear to show a case that’s roughly half the depth of the currently bulky model.

Is seeing really believing?

A shot of the console’s packaging also reveals how the unit would appear on a shop shelf, that’s if you believe what you’re seeing.

It’s also worth noting that the pictured shell only says PS3 across its front, instead of the PlayStation 3 wording on the existing model. Has PS3 become well known enough for Sony to drop the PlayStation name altogether?

Sony’s yet to comment on the pictures. ®
