Slimline PS3 pictures surface

Factory shots, allegedly

Secure remote control for conventional and virtual desktops

Sony may have denied rumours that it's planning to produce a slimmer PlayStation 3, but images have since cropped up that appear to show the casing and packaging of just such a machine.

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.

The pictures are of poor quality and it’s entirely possible that what you’re actually looking at is the shell for a knock-off slimline PS3 with no authentic Sony credentials.

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. ®
