Is the PS3 Slim Fake?

By Paul Hunter

It's another lazy Sunday so that must mean it's time once again for another edition of Mind Games, a feature where we ask you, our loyal readers, questions that are slowly eating us up on the inside.

A week ago a YouTube user from the website uploaded a s-s-s-shaky cam video that is purportedly the first ever footage of the much rumoured PS3 Slim.

According to an Engadget write-up, there was a hot rumour in June that Sony has already signed manufacturing agreements with Foxconn and Pegatron to build the revised model in time for July delivery.

Adding fuel to this rumour, in IGN's latest Game Scoop! podcast, there appears to be a slip-up around the 45 minute mark with an IGN staffer seemingly confirming the site has a PS3 Slim in-hand.

With all these unconfirmed reports circling the internet, I want to know your opinion dammit -- is the PS3 Slim fake, or real?
