Well we know one thing which is that the Sony E3 conference will be interesting and that too not due to software. Hah and people said Sony has shown all their cards....how silly. :P
It's probably fake but we shall know soon enough, Sony however are kings when it comes to slimming down a console and I can see the slim being when they drop the price of the console. It will come and I think soon, this might not be it but if this is not true I am amazed at how much trouble someone would go through to do this.
Edit - Of course will deny it, the fact that they have gone through the trouble of debunking this shows that there is some truth in this.
Come on people THINK, Sony are expecting a 30% increase in console sales and so far sales are terrible. Sony has something they know will increase sales drastically.
