It’ll make the tea as well. According to this, a “particularly well-informed insider” reckons Sony’s planning a slimline PS3 for launch this autumn, which could be the home of the now much-rumoured 160Gb hard drive SKU. The report uses the logic that both PS2 and PSP were slimmed down to support itself.
This new rumour appears to be an extension of the entire debacle surrounding the supposed cancellation of the US 80Gb PS3 SKU and its replacement with a bundle with a bigger hard drive and DualShock 3.
This could go on forever. And probably will.
