The slimmer profile PlayStation 3 that Sony hasn't announced yet made a surprise appearance over the weekend. Sometime on Friday, a listing for the device popped up on Amazon.com in Germany. The listed console had an Amazon Standard Identification Number (ASIN), but no picture (other than some fan art) and no release date, or any other tangible details.
Like a mirage in the desert, the listing has since disappeared -- the page is now listed as "Dokument Nicht Gefunden."
So, who wants to take bets on when the PlayStation 3 Slim will actually be announced? I'm guessing you'll be able to buy one by Christmas.
