Foxconn Silent on Slim PS3

Foxconn today tried to deflect rumors that it was building the slim PS3. Following a newspaper's claim yesterday that the new Sony console was to be shipped by Foxconn for next month, the assembly firm has filed an official stance with the Taiwan Stock Exchange that turns down commentary on the rumor, citing "customer confidentiality." Pegatron, which has been rumored to share responsibilities for making the new system, hasn't formally responded to the apparent leak.

While potentially inaccurate in some areas, the choice to remain silent effectively confirms the existence of the revised PS3. More efficient, cooler Cell processor and graphics units should result in a significantly smaller console that will also have a 120GB hard drive. Historically accurate sources have also implied that there will be an accompanying price cut, addressing one of the longstanding complaints about the system.

If borne out, the rumors would have the updated game machine likely surface by August.
