Sony not only let the cat out of the bag with this one, but pulled out its tabby and held it high for the world to see. Yes, the long rumoured PS3 slim is slighter on the outside, but packs a larger 120GB hard drive on the inside. Its diminished size reduces power consumption, and even the price is smaller, at US$355. We’re getting a better look at the console soon, so be sure to grab a copy of next month’s magazine for more info.
Who needs a PlayStation phone, eh? The new PSP Go will have a 3.8in screen, be 43 per cent lighter than the PSP-3000, have 16GB memory, Bluetooth support and will lose its UMD drive. Direct download games will be announced at E3, and you’ll be able to rent or buy games straight from the PlayStation Network. We’ll have more on the portable player in the next few days, when we get a hands on.
Not everyone is happy with the mundane appearance of their gaming consoles, so there are always a few looking for different ways to transform them into bizarre shapes and sizes. From PCs to Nintendo Wiis, take a look at some of the most interesting, or just plain weird, case mods out there:
#5 Xbox 360 tissue dispenser/alarm clock
A tissue dispenser and an alarm clock in an Xbox 360, what more could you ask for?
#4 Hello Kitty laptop
For all you die-hard fans Hello Kitty (and the girls here)
#3 Rockstar Games Wii
Stunning mod for the Wii. Shame it won’t handle the graphics on GTA IV.
#2 Rainbow Six-themed PS3
An awesome, detailed design of the Vegas scene, disguising the PS3 as a casino.
#1 R2D2 PC
Cleverly-designed case mod for the PC. Probably cleverer than the original R2.

Remember when Sony discovered a fondness for colouring in its PSPs. Apparently, the company is bored of primary colours now, so it’s giving us the Lilac PSP. Do they really think this will make us rush out and buy a handheld gaming device if we haven’t already? And what’s next? Beige? Fuchsia? Ochre? Mustard? Cherry Blossom?
