If you've seen the new PS3 ads then you know the PS3slim is a reality.
I knew it was a reality for a over a month now. That French site calling the PS3 Slim pics fake was the only fake I could see.
really?! what new ads?
this cant be, everyone said te ps3 was a failure Sony is taking over, sorry industry analysts but youre all idiots. Your disappearance now that sony is a speeding UNSTOPPABLE train, is merited.... just resign from your positions as analysts, since you damn sure FAIL at your jobs sorry haterz, but SONY JUST OWNED E3.
If you've seen the inFamous commercials Sony is now using the new PS3 logo that is surfaced on the PS3 Slim. They've also started using to retro robotic Playstation voice. TGSI
it seems you've just put everyone back in their place i never doubted your credibility, although it was kind of hard to believe. this proves everything.
New ads? Link please =)
Now can we stop with the ps3 slim is fake talk? It IS REAL. Get over it.
The PS3 slim in itself might not be a fake announcement. But the pics that were released by that company are... Probably a home made concept, inwhich only purpose was to spread the rumor. Who knows, they might've seen the box of PSP Go and copied it?! I dunno, but the PS3 slim pics were horrible.. Sony would never release a console in THAT state.
I know your still one of the most reliable journalists on the net. I never doubted you for a second. And anyone who's seen your previous work should never either. It's just the Xbox owners, like the guy directly above me, who are hating you for always bringing PS3 owners more reasons as to why the PS3 is the better reason. And also: They confirm the new Metal Gear Solid for the PS3 and PSP at 3:52 into the video: http://ps3hype.nl/nieuws/33... This PSP-Go is Great and it's definitely a Day 1 as is the PS3 slim. Metal Gear Solid is Exclusive. Confirmed!!!!! E3 is over.
If PS3 slim is real and now there is no doubt about PSP GO! Qore confirmed if the price goes down with the slim or for the slim Sony is in the driver seat. Exclusive gameswise they are the best right now in my opinion every genre covered with quality games. I admit the RPGs are lacking but WKC really looks better than what I thought the game was based on leaked english trailers. Sony keep it up. Go not having a touch screen kinda sucks and no 2nd analog stick but no UMD is the way the system was supposed to be.
I don't get it. Where are all the haters now? They all come out to bash the crap out of me in the PS3 Slim pics are fake article from that french site. I got PMs threatening me and calling me an immigrant and everything. No idea where the immigrant comment came from, I was born in Boston. Yet they never come out when I post stuff to shut them up. Do they not see this? Or are they just cowards?
Im Sorry you got all that hate, which probably started because of my comments. Im just hoping the 60+ people who agreed with me on that article will apologize.
3:11 on the youtube vid http://www.youtube.com/watc... @ 4:02 they show it having a screen saver clock!
Its pretty simple why you get all of the hate. Sad little boys and men are NOT happy with the 360 that was so good to them back in 2007, they see the PS3 leaving the 360 in the dust when it comes to quality of software and the contstantly evolving PSN and the endless supply of unmatched 1st and 2nd party games. It was so easy to hate on the PS3 back in 2007, its not so easy now...as a matter of fact if you do you just look as outdated as a Republican in Congress. Keep up the good work Sev, and if you don't mind can you add me back to your friends list? You dissappeard a few months ago. Thanks Sev...by the way how is the little rugrat doing? Thank the Gods that E3 is upon us.
To the people saying the logo on the box is the new logo it isnt... http://www.slashgear.com/wp... http://1.bp.blogspot.com/_9... The first one uses very basic type font which looks very cheap, and weve never seen used before, and the second one uses the familiar Spiderman font, and the second one is the one weve seen in the new commercials not the first one. They are both different. Why would Sony use 3 different logos ?? That is the only thing that screams fake to me...
holy sh!T, did anyone else notice at the end of the video he says he has a second psp go which he takes out then he says "do you wanna game? theres grand turismo already on there for ya" to which she replies "oh i'm not that good at racing games" GT not just confirmed, but also finished?
"1.43 - Sev 'I know because I have seen the PSP Go box. And it looks exactly the same as that PS3 slim box.' Whats to say that the people who supposedly faked the PS3 Slim box, didn't see the same PSP Go! box and use that as a template for their fake? I'm still on the fence about this, but it seems a little enthusiastic of you to say that the box is 100% real because it looks just like the PSP Go! box." http://www.n4g.com/NewsCom-...
Boston in the house ;-)
Because they were actually working on GT Portable at the same time!?!? O_O Everybody thought they were solely focusing on finishing GT5 first.
I hope the screen is GLASS like the iPhone and iPod touch so it doesn't scratch. I love how I don't have to worry about my iPod touch scratching when I put it into my pocket and since the PSP Go looks so pocket-friendly, it seems like a logical addition. Looks like a neat redesign but I'm disappointed that it still only has one analog stick though >:( Fall of this year... damn suddenly that seems really far :/
@1.3 "Sony is taking over, sorry industry analysts but youre all idiots" Year over Year Xbox 360 sales are UP. Year over Year PS3 sales are down. The PS3 is *loosing* ground -- in a race where it was *already* third. This has nothing to do with analyst subjective opinion; it is objective FACT. The PS3 slim *better* have a significant price cut along with it if Sony hopes to stay viable this gen.
That POS is ugly than the DSi! The graphics appear to be that of the Sega GameGear ROFL! Sony should stop making systems and turn into a developer like Sega since they clearly don't know how to make attractive devices.
@Sev - PS3 slim probably is real, but that link you posted is not a PS3 slim it is a polystation 3. @cherrypie do you have shares in MS or something, it's like you're trying really hard to defend them.
Sev has known about this for a LONG time - it's been killin him.
these sony leaks are getting out of hand! Sony is on the ball again
i would be...
Well it can go both ways. They could see it as Major Hype. Or they can take the Valve approach and fire all the staff lol
4 days away from Sony-day, and these leaks are only being followed by super-hypers =P The main market won't even notice till its announced. + we know very little of it. I'd say its the perfect tease at the perfect time. What puzzles me is...why PSP Go!...i mean i get the concept...something more media based and not so hard-core. Something quicker to use and not so clunky, like a portable media hub...but..i dno...i don't want it to become the new game gear =P I have high hopes tho, i'll keep my eyes open on this baby =D
dang,allready? if its legit then thats really early for them to be resizing the ps3... they usually resize'em every 5 years.. PS-1995 PS1-2000 PS2-2000 PS2 SLIM-2005 OH WELL,ill be getting both the psp go and the ps3 slim if its even real.
So someone saying $400 is too much money is a "hater"? it IS too much money if all you're using it for is gaming. I justified the price with all the bells and whistles but there is nothing wrong someone saying $400 is out of their price range. I think the fact that PS3 has been out for nearly 3 years and has only reached the install base that it has is pretty much a confirmation of all the things you call people "haters" for. A price drop will help this out immensely and I personally can't wait. I've been trying to get my friends to buy one for the better part of 2 years. When the price comes down, it will be a much easier sell.
the site is down, GO is taking them DOWN !!
Fixed. I just forgot to beef up the server resources for such a big story.
the ps3 slim logo on that box is different from the logo on the tv commericial for infamous
Honestly, that's the ONLY thing that makes me wonder about the authenticity of the PS3 slim box. From the inFamous trailer, the Spider-Man font is still being used, while the PS3 slim box uses a font extremely similar to that of the PSP and PS2, but slightly rounded off on the edges. That's my only big gripe about the proposed PS3 slim box.
First, for those that want to see the ad, it's attached to this comment. Now, as for the logo itself, the one on the boxes may be placeholders (to example where the logo WOULD be on the box, but not the official logo that will be on the final box design when it goes to retail), or it could be something to throw people off. Or it'll be something that they unveil at E3, and the one shown on the inFamous ad is the placeholder. Either way, this whole box thing just proves that there is some mustard behind this one.
Oh, why didn't I think of that? Duh! It could easily be a placeholder. Now I feel dumb. :P That makes sense. Thanks, buddy. +bubbles
It's all right. Not many realize that kind of thing, and not many could right away unless you have done things in which you've used them before (for instance, when doing sites like I do, you want to put something where you know something like text will go. Instead of an actual news story or something, you use some BS thing or a generic line of "text goes here" throughout the thing, or a solid color image where a future logo might be). But yeah, that's what I think it would be. I DO believe that the slim PS3 is coming. There's just too much evidence to say otherwise.
Sony is bringing too much awesomeness this E3.
Always knew the slim was real but guess I might be wrong about these pics being fake. But still from those pics the PS3 Slim is ugly hope it looks better.
dude the normal PS3 isn't that great to look at two so in my eye's the slim PS3 doesn't look that bad any way that's a crap pic to boot it should look better than that in person.
Looks very legit now. The XMB stripe on both boxes convinces me that the slim is indeed real.
Looks really ugly and with no second analog stick,its still obsolete.Seriously this "PSP Go" was a terrible idea.
it all depends on how comfortable it is for the hands when playing, personally i have psp 2000 and sometimes it is pain in the ass to hold all buttons to be able to control the game properly, sometimes i switch off the psp because of its location!!! psp Go might be perfect only if it was good to hold and play with!! and they cant add a second analog stick yet, there is 50 million user who dont have 2nd analog stick so it wont be fair or right to introduce it now!! only when psp 2 comes!!
I'm still trying to figure out what it does. Is it the same as a regular psp? Or will it have more?
in terms of hardware, the PSP go sports bluetooth and it is UMD-less compared to the PSP-3000. in terms of software, we dont know what it will have, but im pretty sure it will have all of the Software features that the PSP-3000 has, and then some.
I laughed how everyone jumped on Sev and hailed the french site as saviors in that thread. OUCH!
I say burn them to death and grant Sev power. lol CastlevaniaX
I apologize to Sev for flaming him that much on N4G.
Why isn't the 'PS3 Slim' on QORE then??? Surely that is bigger News than a New PSP-Go??? Maybe they couldn't risk it!!! You just can't keep a secret on the internet!!! ;-D Oh well only a few days to [PSP]Go... ;) + OMG!!!!!!!!!! Veronica Belmont looks CUTE!!! ;-P in that Qore video i saw!!! ;-P
ps3slim will be shown as well unless last hour change
we're probably not even going to see it this E3 until the end of the Summer.
Now I have to say... THAT pic of the PSPGo is nice. Id easily buy that. Nice screen, good shape for keeping in your pocket. It just looks nice. Plus you wouldnt have the buttona in the way when watching movies. About the ps3 slim. Im not bothered. I already have a ps3, and this slim one looks nice, but thats it. Hopefully it'll be cheaper though =)
What we've been hinting at. The PS3 Slim looks really basic, but that's the point. I like the new box art a lot.
Agreed. It is 99% likely that the PS3slim is real. And that makes me so happy. I just really hope they have a price cut to go along with it so people will rush out to buy it and hype will build. Bundling games and keeping it at $400 isn't going to cut it anymore.
Good job Sev. You're one of the few journalists that make your profession look good. Keep up the great work.
Thank you. Although I still find it funny that I am a journalist. Before PSLS I was a construction worker, building condos. You don't hear of many construction workers turn journalist. I do appreciate the kind words, and is part of what keeps me going strong.
Cool I guess. I'm still keeping my PSP-1000 though.
i don't get why people are saying that the PS3 slim pics are fake, when the pics showed proof that the system is being made in a PS3 production factory. now we might not see this PS3 slim at E3, we would probably see it sometime before the beginning of September along with a price cut on top of it.
Well i won't buy PSP Go unless sony tell me how to run my 90+ umd collection on a umdless psp
play them on ur old PSP. There still gonna be making game's on UMD for the old psp.
I always said i cant see myself buying a playstation product not made by Ken and I love me playstation but these designs leave alot to be desired IMO. :(
there a metal gear coming out for the psp.. probably it's about big boss.. and the ps3 one is about raiden.. the 3fixme is about akiba's lbm
I can't wait to buy this thing. I've been huge on only buying games for my 1000 model that were PSN games becuase I hate UMD. I'll buy this one and then give my older model to my little cousin.
I sold my PSP-1000 along time ago. I have been waiting for this to release. I have been wanting to get another PSP so bad.
Assuming it is real (and that comparison looks like good evidence), perhaps sony intend to keep the PS3 slim under wraps until after E3 to shift some of the old PS3 stock on post E3 hype? Unless the slim is practically ready to ship it would kill old PS3 sales. Personally I hope the slim is real so I can pick up a cheap old PS3 from the thousands that will suddenly appear on ebay...
Holy shat, this is freaken amazing. I CANNOT wait until June 2nd...
Man this is getting hot hot! HOT!! IF the ps3 slim is announced (and obv doesn't look like the crap on the leaked photos - more refined for sure, shiny and all) AND has 120 Gb HD, AND bluetooth / wireless and 2 USB's AND costs less than the current PS3 (since its cheaper to make...theoretically)... well i'll.... i'll... ZOMG!!!!
This definitely holds some weight to the PS3slim being "real". We won't really know for sure til its announced, however.
