Faked PlayStation 3 mock-up image causes a stir

Nice looking console, but a closer look suggests an impressive fake

A new picture purporting to be of Sony's next-generation PlayStation has been "leaked" onto the Internet, but a number of elements point to the image being an impressive fake rather than a genuine leak. The originally appeared on technology blog Gizmodo, where it was accompanied by a note saying that the site's staff couldn't "vouch for the validity" of the image, and has since been posted to numerous sites and forums around the web.

The mock-up shows a black and silver console with one rounded end, presumably designed to stand vertically or lie flat - similarly to the existing PS2 console - and slot-loading bays for Blu-Ray discs, Memory Stick Duo cards and UMD discs. However, the image, which is numbered as "Page 12 / 18" and designed to look like a presentation slide, contains a number of inconsistencies which suggest that it isn't really a PlayStation 3 we're seeing.
