    One things that adds credibility to those PS3 Slip boxes is that lawyers sent Kotaku (and possibly others) Cease and Desist orders to try to get them to remove the images from their website.

    ^oooh, that's some pretty heavy evidence.

    To be honest, I hope the final version looks a little better than that. They could have at least kept the Spider-Man font, which would have probably made the thing look a little better.

    Do you really think lawyers would go after a website to remove photos of something that's fake that they have no connection to?

    Yeah, if it was fake, then probably not.

    I could see people mistakening this PS3 Slim (should it actually release at its current appearance) for a PS2, or vice-versa. To the average, untrained consumer eye, they look near-identical. The PS3 font is also positioned similarly, and the font itself is almost straight out of PS2 days...except the corners of the alphanumerals are rounded.

    So you bought the Wii because it's appearance looked great? I think I'll go buy an N-Gage I really like the shape of it.

    If he meant that he would've said:

    I don't think this is legit anyway.
    I'm pretty sure they would have kept the spider-man font.
    I'm sure they'll bring out a slim version at some point, I just don't think this is the one.

    I love the simplicity of its design. And yes, I think the Wii looks ****ing great.

    Alright, whatever suits you. I couldn't care less when it comes to the appearance of game consoles. I just buy them based on the exclusives and online service. But that's just me.
