The upcoming issue of Chinese publication Game Wave features an image of a very "slim" looking PS3, along with a blurb that says the console is debuting at the end of next month.
What's more, according to this publication, the new console will be first shown in Germany. (We assume at the upcoming Games Convention next week.)
We're not familiar with Game Wave and we haven't seen the actual article in the upcoming issue. All we've got is a tiny picture of what looks like a Photoshopped PS3 Slim and two blurbs. This article could be a round up of online rumors.
Also, we'd assume that a PS3 redesign would garner more magazine cover space than, say, Gundam. (No offense to Gundam!)
We're not entirely convinced. Stay tuned. More on this as it develops.
Update: As commenter Kakuki and others have pointed out, Game Wave grabbed this February 2009 fan-made PS3 creation from Flickr for the article.
It's hard to say how using this image affects the article's validity. Though, this article is appearing more like a round-up of online rumors. We will update this post if and when we get a look at the actual article.
