Slim PS3 update: mysterious Chinese firm issues a cease and desist… to Engadget

This story is starting to annoy me now. As much as i hope that i am wrong and there is a slimline PS3 on the way (with a more affordable price tag), im going to wade into this story with some logic and reasoning…

Why, if i had created a slimline product, would i use the only view (bar the bottom) that fails to show-off any of the slimlineness of it?

I get the feeling the desist order has been issued by the chinese company that a turning these out but have yet to sell any and a slightly un-nerved by the worldwide publicity.

I hope i am wrong though. And i guess for that reason, is why the story refuses to go away. We all want it to be true.
