Here's a Rare Look at a PS3 Prototype Console in Action

While almost every gamer in the world knows what a PS3 retail unit looks like, we now have a rare look at a PS3 prototype console that actually works.

Looks as if Sony told IBM, "umm .... for the time being, can you build a case to house the Cell processor you designed? While we finish the final PS3 design in collaboration with George Foreman's design team."

Wrong, this is a slim prototype and not the OG.
The original didn't have that boot screen.

Maybe because that person updated the system.

The power eject buttons are from the slim.. The original had touch buttons

Looks like a fake to me. It’s running jailbroken firmware “Rebug” that’s why it has the debug options. It’s not official.

I think thats the case. The power and eject buttons are from the slim version of the console so its definitely not a prototype i dont think.

I agree, everything looks pretty much in place like in the final slim version. It looks like a slim ps3 with rebug firmware and a 3D printed case over the regular case.

Fake as hell as it's using a rebug CFW. Just a hacked slim with a 3D printed case and some stickers and markers.
