LOL at the top loading design.

There's a reason that nothing is top loading anymore. DUST.

If the slider is mechanical then hopefully there isn't any way to actually leave it open by mistake and on power down it would close, unless you cut the power to it. I think that design looks pretty nice and depending on how it looks in the plastic I may well swap out my current slim for one.

We don't have the dimensions so your comparison is irrelevant, it could be much smaller than you have scaled it as.

If they were to release it, as mentioned, it would more than likely be roughly the same timeline as ps2 slim and ps3 launch. I have never given much attention to playstation releases, even less to "slim" models but nevertheless the design posted on the previous page looks very nice!

Um.

The connectors arent going to magically shrink, an easy way to scale something with the same ports is to resize it so the ports are exactly the same size, then the top view is scaled so the edges are in line with the bottom image.

Its a very plausible indication of how big its going to be.

They really don't want to move to the next generation do they? :/

Its a marketing trick, release a new smaller version and it will kick off a sales surge.

They did it with the previous consoles, the PS1 also got the slimmer PSOne, the PS2 got the PSTwo.

What is wrong with a slot loaded drive?

This is just Sony making it cheaper to produce their system, and you must remember they are still spouting that they want a 10 year life on the PS3. Also like what was said above they could release the PS4 and for awhile the PS3 will outsell it.

I know for me personally I never buy consoles at launch anymore. I wait two to three years to see what games come out, and then I decide on which system I'm choosing that generation. Like this time I initially chose the XBOX 360 but flipped sides after so much hardware problems.
