Source: Web site Pocket-Lint has claimed to have got itself a 'scoop' from 'multiple sources in the games industry in the UK.'

What we heard: Pocket-Lint reports that Sony Computer Entertainment Europe will be making a series of big announcements tomorrow for its UK customers. These include a price reduction of the 60GB PlayStation 3, currently priced at £425), down £56 to £369.

There will also supposedly be an official announcement of the much-rumoured 40GB version, which will be priced at £299, and in other news the 60GB starter pack, which was announced at E3 in July, will be phased out. The new 40GB version will come with Wi-Fi and a SixAxis controller, but will have two less USB slots, and also lose the emotion engine chip and memory card reader, according to Pocket-Lint's sources.

This is just the latest report in an increasing body of evidence that suggests Sony is on the verge of announcing a 40GB PS3. It now appears such an announcement is more a matter of when, not if.

The official story: Sony maintained its standard response to enquiries of this ilk. A spokesperson told GameSpot, "I am afraid we do not comment on rumours and speculation."

Bogus or not bogus? The exact details may be up in the air, but something's definitely in the works. Almost certainly not bogus.
