ARS: The one rumor that was floating around the gaming press before E3 that didn't come true was the possibility of the PS3 slim being announced. We say it's coming in a few months, once Sony has cleared the retail channels of the existing hardware. We asked Sony's director of Hardware Marketing, John Koller, about the rumor, and he had some words for the "story."
"If [the coverage] focuses more on leaks or what may or may not happen then yes, there is a certain amount of frustration. I think we have a tremendous story to tell today, and I think the path that we're trying to lead is much different than Microsoft or Nintendo. We view a little bit of a different future," Koller told Ars. "Who's going to get to the future first? I think that's a more interesting story than 'I found some packaging in China that may or may not...' you know, personally I don't see that as a story."
