Slim PS3 and PSP Go Detail

A source today claims that Sony's slim PS3 and PSP Go are real but that they may not launch exactly as planned. Referring to the same contact that accurately leaked other hardware details, Ars Technica says the smaller PS3 is enroute but that it may not be announced at E3. As it won't ship until August or September, Sony is reportedly hoping to draw down existing stocks of the full-size models before replacing them with newer consoles.

The PSP Go, meanwhile, should get a formal E3 introduction but won't replace the regular PSP, at least initially. Sony is said to be selling it side-by-side with the current model to give buyers a choice between the new, UMD-less system and the legacy version to avoid abandoning its traditional game format completely. It's unknown if the company would phase out the old model once downloadable games were normal, though the source hints that the PSP Go may cost less.

Both consoles are regarded as essential for Sony, which has been suffering as Microsoft and Nintendo have both offered systems that are less expensive and at times have more features.
