The Telegraph reports that Sony have placed orders for enough console components to double the production of PS3’s over the next three months. This move leads us to think that Sony are expecting a massive increase in demand which could only be caused by the introduction of a Slim version of the PS3 games console.

Pictures have been leaked of a slim PS3, adding fuel to the rumours that such a product will be announced at the E3 electronics show in June.

I’d say the pictures are fake. The product looks cheap and unprofessional and not up to the quality you’d expect from the likes of Sony. I know they want to cut costs, but surely not this much, especially considering the quality look of the current PS3 (although the design is a little hideous).

I think the big E3 announcement (which is coming) will be about some sort of Wii style motion controller. I guess we’ll just have to wait and see.
