Late last week, we posted what appeared to be the first pictures of the PLAYSTATION 3 "Slim". Taiwan-based attorney Li Mo & Associates contacted us, potentially giving credence to the validity of the pictures.

In their email, the firm stated that these "trade secrets" had been posted online and demanded that the images be taken down "immediately" in a cease-and-desist. However, this legal notice did not come from Sony, who still has yet to comment on the images.

For those talking about the logo change. If I remember rightly, Sony has already changed the use of the logo from PLAYSTATION back to PlayStation in a lot of advertisements, so don't be so surprised if it were the case that they decide to backtrack with the hardware itself. They're pretty desperate at the moment and changing the logo back to the old style may be an attempt at emulating past glories.

This system does not look nice but I can underestand how they would fit the hardware inside. If you see the guts of a current 80GB compared to a launch 60GB you will see just how much it has been refined. It's completely different architecturally and the hardware is almost rattling around inside where as with the earlier versions every gap was filled with it's bloated guts.

I'm 65/35 on this being real. Based on the logo changes in publications and sports advertising and the alterations to current hardware, plus the savings thhe company would make on shipping and packing materials with the added savings of a cheaper case this could make sense for a global company with billions in losses.
