Sony knows nothing about those slim PS3 pics

These are the rumoured pics of a new slim PS3 that are said to have leaked from a production line in a Chinese factory.
The shots show the matt black outer shell of a skinnier version of the console, complete with a slots for the Blu-ray disc drive, USB ports, and PS3 branding on the top and bottom (but not in the same Spider-Man-style font). There's even a shot of the box, with all the PSN logos and a label indicating a 120GB internal hard drive.
Quite specifically Sony told us: "We don't know anything about the system in the photos."
It's cheap-looking plastic and odd logo remind us more of those knock-off console imitations common in those parts of the world (remember the Vii?), probably packing a few dozen emulated Atari 2600 games.
Sony yesterday told CVG: "We currently don't have any plans for a redesigned PS3".
