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
I love PlayStation but this is hilariously accurate
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.
Looks better than the PS5
And way better than XsX 😎
Love the PS3 XMB.
Ya appears fake
Ahh the ps3, my favourite PlayStation.
PS3 my one of my fave consoles disappointed to see the old girl getgo . The PS4 era just felt like it was just it passed by really fast.

Does it run at 160 fps?
Anyone else miss the XMB?
Yes!!! I miss the triangle button having an actual use. On the ps4, it does nothing. Don't get me stared on suite of multimedia features the firmware updates gradually baked into the the ps3. Gateway MT6706 2008
I miss Playstation Home
