guy at end says its mark up ad work that will be in the real BB circular ads in about 2 weeks?
Any PS3 Gamers gonna cop the slim. I wont be. I got my PS3 and I'm happy. But if its only $299 and still has the blu-ray I might get one for my living room. Right now my PS3 is in my theatre room. $299 for any BR is a good price.

The PS3 will go down as either the greatest hoax in gaming history or the one of the most atrocious kept secrets of all-time. With reported leaks, videos, and numerous sources revealing information and pictures months prior to any formal announcement, the PS3 Slim has almost become a myth. Ever since E3 we’ve seen numerous reports come in on this mystery machine and with just a week left before the “official” unveiling will reportedly take place, we have another leak.

This time it comes from an alleged Best Buy ad. According to The Big Man and Garrett, they’ve received early images of a Best Buy advertisement debuting the PS3 Slim. Advertised at a price point of $299.99, the Slim will be slightly cheaper than the current models. Unfortunately, not all is well with these images.

The system image found on the ad is an exact replica of a NeoGaf fan made image. To counter this claim, though, the source for The Big Man and Garret had this to say:

“I cannot reveal my exact role, however, I can tell you that I work closely with the marketing department at Best Buy. This ad is a mock up at best of the ad to be released in just over two weeks. I cannot comment on the NeoGaf PS3 mock up as this is the material that we’re working with. Many images are often used as placeholders. The final ad will be touched up for grammar, punctuation, etc. Hope this helps.”

With Sony preparing a hour long press conference for August 18th, we can be sure we’ll either hear a confirmation of the Slim’s existence or we’ll finally be able to shut the door on the system once and for all.

I want a Slim for my LR.

I got my 60GB 2 years ago, had the drive fail while the system was still under warranty(lucky). GTA4 killed it BTW.

If they have Uncharted, LBP for 9.99 I think I'll pick those up.
